Publisher's Summary

At last - Cajeiri has his young guests from the starship, three young folk entranced by weather and trees and creatures with minds of their own. It’s all he dreamed of.... But now safety is foremost: Cajeiri’s grandfather has been assassinated, hostile Assassins Guild invaded Great-uncle’s house, and now Bren Cameron, paidhi-aiji, who was sent to keep the aiji’s son safe, has more than the young guests on his mind. The aiji-dowager knows who’s to blame for the attacks, and they’re going after him. The fact that the person responsible is in the heart of Assassins’ Guild Headquarters, the most closely guarded fortress on the continent, is not going to stop her. Bren Cameron has the pieces now, of a decades-old plot that’s been threaded through Guild actions going back before his arrival on the continent, and more - he knows the person responsible is going to find out he knows, and find out within hours. They have no choice. If they don’t move, the other side will. And the lives of the boy, the guests, the entire ruling family are at stake.

Great book, great performance, great series

What a tour de force! I thought I'd listen to the first thirty minutes or so the night this book was released. Ha! I couldn't put it down. I stayed up most of the night listening to it, then took the day off work and listened to the rest of it nonstop to the end. And it was worth it!

Lots of excitement, engaging characters, important conflicts, and satisfying outcomes. I was braced for long boring summaries of what had gone before, but happily Cherryh sidestepped all that. She slipped in the needed background information through interesting new content.

Many cheers for Danial May's brilliant reading and C.J. Cherryh's brilliant writing.

Entertaining, satisfying, great read!

I have so enjoyed listening to the Foreigner series, even book 15. The book continues right where the previous book left off and takes us through the heir's birthday celebration, his 9th birthday. One would assume that Cherryh is not finished with this series. The light humor by the author throughout the story and Daniel May's narration and voices for the different characters is so well done. Between this book and the preceding book I listened to the first book and could really tell the difference in May's style.

The story is still enjoyable and refreshing. Always some plot to overthrow the current regime with twists and turns and Bren Cameron, our hero, to save the day. Some may tire of the series but I've thoroughly enjoyed each book. I am hoping this is not her last.

Still highly recommended.
