Publisher's Summary

It's been a year of upheaval since Bren Cameron's return from space - a year since he and the aiji-dowager, one of his most powerful atevi allies, returned home from their two-year interstellar mission to find the government overthrown and their world in chaos. Now, at last, things on the atevi world seem to be on the right track, and Bren hopes that life may soon become much more tranquil.

For me, the best in the series

It amazes me how I can be entirely engrossed in each of the Foreigner series books even when nothing much (as viewed from the outside) actually happens. And when it does. Wow! This book had a major unexpected twist that turned the series on its head, and made it even more interesting. No spoilers here, but I loved it.

Cherryh's ability to get so deeply into the minds of the characters can sometimes be difficult to endure. But as someone with a busy mind I can only say that it's familiar to my own thought processes and I've gotten to know the workings of the characters well. And there's always something new to learn and surprises here and there. They aren't unpredictable, they're complex.

As always, Daniel Thomas May narrates the story perfectly. He delivers each character well, and considering he has 3 different species' words to deliver he does it superbly and that's quite an accomplishment.

Now I'm stuck waiting for the next in the series!

Good story, fresh twist, still loving the series!

What made the experience of listening to Visitor the most enjoyable?

I have loved this series since the beginning many years ago. Listening/reading the first novel Foreigner, from so long ago, it's now easier to pick out the "dated" references to technology no longer relevant. I love how the newer novels subtly update this. This installment also has a twist that has me still looking forward to the next book, even after all these years.

For those that said their downloads seemed to be missing parts of chapters, my download was complete and free from glitches. I purchased and downloaded 07Apr16. Mr. May's narration was as excellent as ever.
