"The overthrow of the Atevi head of state, Tabini-aiji, and the several moves of enemies even since his restoration, have prompted major changes in the Assassins' Guild, which has since worked to root out its seditious elements - a clandestine group they call the Shadow Guild. With the Assassins now rid of internal corruption, with the birth of Tabini's second child, and with the appointment of an heir, stability seems to have returned to the Atevi world. Humans and Atevi share the space station in peaceful cooperation, humans and Atevi share the planet as they have for centuries, and the humans' island enclave is preparing to welcome 5000 human refugees from a remote station now dismantled, and to do that in unprecedented cooperation with the Atevi mainland. In General Bren Cameron, Tabini-aiji's personal representative, returning home to the Atevi capital after securing that critical agreement, was ready to take a well-earned rest - until Tabini's grandmother claimed his services on a train trip to the smallest, most remote and least significant of the provinces, snowy Hasjuran - a move concerning which Tabini-aiji gave Bren a private instruction: protect her. Advise her. Advise her - perhaps. As for protection, she has a trainload of high-level Guild. But since the Aiji-dowager has also invited a dangerously independent young warlord, Machigi, and a young man who may be the heir to Ajuri, a key northern province - the natural question is why the dowager is taking this ill-assorted pair to Hasjuran and what on this earth she may be up to. With a Shadow Guild attack on the train station, it has become clear that others have questions, too. Hasjuran, on its mountain height, overlooks the Marid, a district that is part of the Atevi nation only in name - a district in which Machigi is one major player, and where the Shadow Guild retains a major stronghold. Protect her? Ilisidi is hellbent on settling scores with the Shadow Guild, and her reasons for this trip and this company now become clear. One human diplomat and his own bodyguard suddenly seem a very small force to defend her from what she is setting in motion."--Publisher.… (mais)

A mostly strong ending and a few good Bren/Jago scenes really saved this book for me. And there's some good banter from Bren's aishid. And sleep-deprived Bren getting catnaps is a treat. Things really pick up in the last... 1/5 or so of the book, which is... a long wait for things to get interesting. I keep bouncing between 3 and 4 stars. On the whole, I think it's too boring to merit 4 stars. On the other hand, there's one plot thread that's really fun and something that hasn't really been introduced before. So 4 stars it is.

I still find the Cajeiri scenes some of the biggest negatives about the later books. His portions are... repetitive and boring, and not much happens in them. Nothing at all happens in this book in his sections.

Overall it was kind of meh as entries in the series go. I have honestly entirely forgotten what happened in the previous book because they're that unremarkable at this point. I kept rereading the first three books while reading this because they're just so much better. Anyone who's gotten this far, I mean... well, we're probably going to read the next one, I guess? I just wish we had a later entry that was as good as "Visitor". ( )

#21 in the Foreigner series. every year i am afraid Cherryh will stop writing them; every year one comes along as a great gift. the complexity of the world, and all the characters in it, and the complexities of the politics and its strategies, just keeps expanding. this novel opens up a number of whole new areas of the world and new plotlines to follow through on in later novels, and it ends on a cliffhanger. but more importantly, the characters are still growing, and still surprising. and being human, we become so attached to their welfare and their dreams; it is not atevi, perhaps, but we invest in them, and emotional attachment results. Cajieri, at fortunate nine, here learns so much about his parents; Ilisidi the dowager shares her long-term strategy with Bren, for a wonder; the Marid changes in spite of itself, and space brings more technology into a very traditional world. what will come of it all? it's like a physical terraforming of the world, the advent of massive change, so carefully introduced over time, so dangerous to the built environment and the bedrock of both human and atevi ways of thinking. it cannot at this point be stopped, but it is destabilizing, impossibly delicate, often brutal: a vast experiment to share a planet. could the detente some day result in actual harmony and integration? is that even desirable? stay tuned. it's only book #21, so far, and not a wasted word.

Just beneath the surface, something else is going on. I catch something wafting in, but I cannot quite say what. "It was just so much more complicated than that. The Marid was a maze of connections and foreignness." (p.130)
"War complicated a diplomatic effort."p.173
Perhaps this series is about diplomacy. "There was nowhere left to run." ( )

All the usual stuff for which we read these books. But this one is more than usually claustrophobic. Bren spends almost all of Divergence in a windowless train car or a windowless room with a crowd of others. Likewise Cajeiri scenes are all deep within the Bujavid. But things do happen, as usual in the latter portion of the book after the tensions have been turned up tight enough. ( )
