It's always a real treat to pick up these books even when I know it's gong to have some parts that are going to inevitably annoy me. Such as Barb. But despite that, I think I'm really getting into--- or perhaps diving ever deeper--- into the alien political misadventure. :)

It's almost as if I'm meant to cry in relief every single time Bren daydreams or doodles or has to convalesce after getting shot because all his other hours are just filled the sneaky suspicion that he's just landed his and his allies' staff in yet another outbreak of war. Those backward Atevi just don't appreciate the human influence! (or working indoor toilets)!

For shame!

Even so, I love the pace and the constant simmer of excitement. I'd grown to expect Tabini's son and his delightful PoV to get into yet another kerfuffle, but would you believe it? Not This Time! :) Of course, Tobi and Barb and a mess of other Atevi youngsters are more than enough to get people shot or kidnapped or turn the South into another outbreak of civil war, but who's counting? Well, actually, I am. I love this series. Its great characters, its DEEP worldbuilding, its amazing political and instinctual setup, everything always rises to the occasion!

The next book will conclude this mini-trilogy following Bren's rise to political power in the Atevi. I can only hope that these benighted aliens get their crap together and prep for an alien invasion! Sheesh! ( )

Quote:
Would his father do a thing like that?
It was what mani said, 'Watch out for a man whose enemies keep disappearing.'
Well, that was his father, damned sure. Most everyone knew his father that way.
Review:
Boy am totally, head-over-heels in love with this series. But... it is a bit difficult to even know what to say after 11 books. If you want to start with Deceiver: don't. If you've already made it this far: you know what to expect by now, there are no changes. Only awesomeness. Action. Politics. Danger. Tea. Great company, awesome friends and a whole lot of responsibilities. What more can you ask for? Whatever it is, you probably got it with this.

Deceiver takes up immediately after the events Conspirator and just... doesn't ever stop. It is action sequence after action sequence, with the requisite sitting around talking and meeting over gallons of tea in between. I just couldn't stop reading. I didn't want to stop. I needed to know absolutely everything. Hell, I still want to know more even now.

Matters at Najida have gotten very heated. And Bren, being the Lord of Najida, and Cajeiri are right in the middle of it. And now Ilisidi is here to help. This is all part of a massive plot against Bren, Tabini, and the aishidi'tat as a whole, both the past kerfuffle we just wrapped up and the new one that was started which was a continuation on the previous. And wrapped up in this is Geigi, who is home from his time on the space station because his nephew fucked up bad. Geigi is fun to have around, I missed him.

The past two books have almost felt like they were just one book that got split up when it got big enough (a trend that will continue from this point forward). The biggest change between this book and the previous was how much I have started to like Cajeiri. Only eight years old, he is a child by any standards. He thinks and acts and exists like a child, so it has always been a bit perplexing why Cherryh made him a perspective character. Yet I have warmed up to him so much. I liked him before, but this book was the time for Cajeiri to shine. I'm so, so, so proud of this little shithead.

Sidenote: Oh my god look at that cover! It's the best one yet! ( )

I often like her books better on the reread. This is volume 11 in a series, and some summer I can going to enjoy rereading the whole series, at least half of which I've already read twice. I was amazed reading #11 how it is conceivable to me that someone would enjoy reading it if one had never read 1-10. A confident Bren is emerging as a leader who takes independent action. ( )

This volume in the series (#11) did not feel like a stand-alone, the way many of the previous books did. There was little introduction or review, and the end was unresolved. I think we've given up the pretense that there won't be a future book. On the other hand, there was more action and less internal monologue by Bren (although not "none"). Also almost no inter-species sex. Bren is finally back to doing his job, interpreting and negotiating peace. ( )

It was an interesting little pile, the stack of wax-stained vellum that occupied the right side of Bren Cameron's desk, in his office, in Najida estate, on the west coast of the continent.
