Love Cherryh' s close third-person. In this trilogy, she now migrates expertly between Bren and Cajaeri, the two most culturally hybridized characters in the cast, and perhaps the most similar to each other in not entirely belonging wherever they find themselves. Pleased with this now-extended return to diverse geographies (the seaside, in this installment) and in-depth planetside politics. The flow of events in this novel feels slightly choppy, perhaps punctuated more than previously with intermittent episodes of high action - but no great complaint here. May's performance is sterling, though with one or two moments of confusion between characters or dialogue/internal monologue. Excited about wry introduction of two new characters from the Guild. Overall, love this one and can hardly wait to start the next!
