Publisher's Summary

When those alien entities called "humans" sent their first exploration ship into Compact space, the traditional power alliances of the seven Compact races were catastrophically disrupted. And, giving shelter to Tully, the only surviving human, Pyanfar Chanur and her feline hani crew were pitched into the center of a galactic maelstrom, becoming key players in a power game which could cause an interstellar war, or bring the last hope for peace between eight barely compatible alien races.

A whirl of worlds.

This series is in many ways Cherryh's most accessible one. She takes on one species after another and makes them real as a dime. And comprehensible by their own lights. Without ever making them into humans with fur or feathers. It's a wonderful space opera, which I normally hate. But here, when the alliens are so alien and yet, somehow people you know, how can you resist?
Some whiny bits in the dialog. Listen to it and see what you think. It didn't ruin my enjoyment of the books.But you might feel differently.

One of my favorites

The Chanur books by C J Cherryh are ones I have read more than a few times. I thought I would enjoy listening to them, and indeed the stories are as interesting, the characters as well developed as I remember, but the narrator leaves much to be desired. She lacks preparation, her characterization voices are much the same for different characters within species or with stereotypical earthly accents for aliens, and she mispronounces words, most egregiously the name Skkukuk, which she turns into a confusing homonym with Sikkukkut, two different characters. I suggest listening to these books only after reading them because of this narrator’s performance.
