Cherryh – Convergence is the eighteenth book in CJ Cherryh's beloved Foreigner space opera seriesConvergence marks a new phase in the Foreigner Universe kOr the human refugees who are crowding the space station to be landed on the island since the atevi will not grant land to the human residents of their planet Bren a native of this island is now an atevi official trying to prepare the human inhabitants for the arrival of many desperate human refugees from space OK I've now read 18 of the 19 books in this series and I've continuously and consistently not been able to dish out 5 stars Why? Sour grapes? Actually it's not I have one single gripe with this entire series but it's one that's growing by the book because this issue is present in ALL the books and it stops what is otherwise an outstanding series from well being outstanding That gripe? It's a simple little thing and it's called consistency From a small thing like keeping the names of major secondary characters consistent Yolanda to Yolande anyone? to a MAJOR thing like the fact that the reuirements of atevi society and their psychology changes from book to bookthat's inexcusable for me This is not an indie author running her series on a shoe string budget off the side of a desk And even most of those understand that consistency is important This is CJ Cherryh people She has the whole team at DAW behind her One of the key jobs of a copy editor is to find and kill this type of screw up Failing that most authors just take a few notes Takes a deep breath Replaces soapbox in storage

Convergence Foreigner #18Convergence is the eighteenth book in CJ Cherryh's beloved Foreigner space opera seriesConvergence marks a new phase in the Foreigner Universe knowledge about the dangerous situation in adjacent space rests only with Bren Cameron the human diplomat to the alien court of the atevi four starship captains and the Oddly enough I was fully expecting space diplomacy and aliens but that's done for now Non aggression treaty and Rosetta Stone signed in hand and now shipped downwell Bren and crew have a brand new problemWhat the hell are they going to do with all those station refugees? Atevi won't take them and there's definitely not enough resources to keep them for long on the station around the Atevi worldOddly enough the simple solution takes this series in a seriously awesome direction I'm surprised hasn't been explored as fully as now Mospheira The island where all the humans are kept penned in like livestock Or not livestock but clannish and fearful refugees from 200 years ago thinking they still have a good handle on things when in reality they're just being tolerated by a very understanding Atevi I was drawn all the way in I'm surprised how much I enjoyed seeing the human populace for once instead of just dealing with them or not dealing at all from the mainland where the Atevi rule Cajeiri's side story was uite interesting and develops his character and relationships nicely in a new adult way but honestly I was very much invested in Bren dealing with all his old colleagues and detractors without getting to rely on all the honors or stations of the Atevi political sideA good diplomat always tries to work from a position of power and it was too funny how he worked it Still a great series And there's one that came out Woo Can't wait
