Cherryh Ñ 2 Summary Review Convergence Foreigner #18 Or 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. I really like these books and I was glad to visit again with the characters and become immersed in the language style However this is perhaps the weakest entry in the whole series aside from the first book which is weak for entirely different reasons It s 90% talking That might not be so bad but most of the talking is either rehashing of previous events or even worse Bren explaining the current Situation over and over again Even that might have been tolerable if there was the usual bit of suspenseful action at the end but this absolutely just peters out The Situation is the same as at the end of the previous book the alien kyo have signed a treaty of good will and are leaving the solar system there are 5000 people on the space station who need to be relocated to the planet as soon as possible and the human children whom Cajeiri befriended on the station would be good candidates for future paidhi I have all that memorized because Bren explains it at length at least a dozen times He s making a formal visit to the human island with his entire atevi entourage and it should have been fun to see their reaction to the human region and the reaction of the locals Unfortunately Jago and Banichi speak hardly a word and all Bren does is meet with various people and explain the aforementioned Situation again until you re ready to scream The humans merely nod and agree with Bren entirely unless they are small minded conservative bigots who embarrass themselves by spluttering weak arguments Cajeiri s part of the story is only slightly interesting He visits his uncle gets assigned bodyguards and meets a distant cousin with some information about the tense political situation At one point I thought there was potential for a good gun battle or at least one hasty evacuation by bus but no such luck Cajeiri doesn t get lost or kidnapped or even thrown off his mecheita The only nice bit is that he s gradually accepting his role as a future leader I like Cherryh s work enough to put up with a certain amount of repetition and slow pacing but this book is a disappointment This series has been fascinating and exciting at times and I hope the next book will be much better

To read of my reviews check out my blog at keikii Eats Books uote Mani says if we site a space industry in their district they will become great supporters of the ship Perhaps we should give them a contract Change son of mine should be applied like salt to a dish best taste it understand it and then decide Review Hmm Convergence wasdifferent somehow A lot of hows to be honest I think if I weren t so biasedly in love with this series I might have rated this much poorly than I haveWhile both Bren and Cajeiri have been sharing the perspective for the book since I believe book eight or nine it is different this time around They are much eual characters Cajeiri has been acting like an adult having and agency with each successive book Acting less like chaos incarnate This was like a test for him and he passed with flying coloursBren s story was much of the same as it has been the entire series Politics politics and politics The difference being that it was entirely human politics and it didn t even have to deal with the space station or space ship It was all Mospheiran Tabini has sent Bren to Mospheira to make them deal with the rapidly deteriorating situation on the space station and get Cajeiri s friends down to the planet safe and in a program to someday replace him as paidhiThere is a lot of time spent trying to get the Mospheirans to see reason Which good luck with that Jeez humans in this series are absolutely impossible to get along with It is no wonder that Bren prefers to deal with the Atevi It is a lot of what we have seen to date A lot of meetings mostly without tea because they were large meetings with different cabinets Nothing special but still damn fine to readCajeiri on the other hand has had his first solo outing He has gone on his own to his great uncle Tatiseigi s house With permission this time Tabini wants to show that Tatiseigi isn t out of favour with him and this gives a chance for Cajeiri to just be a kid and get to ride his macheiti which he has only been allowed to ride once beforeCajeiri is learning how to do things on his own how to direct the going ons around him on his own It s all politics but of the sort a child can handle He has to deal with keeping his family from getting even of a mess than it already is He is a child of politics tying together way too many linesBut he is only a kid And I found myself crying a bit for Cajeiri He is never allowed to just be a kid Everything has an ulterior motive Nothing is safe for him Everything he ever has tried to do to just be a kid has been interrupted by gunfire or assassins or kidnapping or some combination And now he is being saddled with even responsibility while not being in charge of anything in his life He is always at the whims of the adults while not ever being allowed to be a kid It sucks and he isn t even allowed to complain Poor kid

Book 18The explosive discovery made at the end of the previous instalment is kept under wraps with only a handful of people aware of it Knowing Cherryh I guess we re going to have to wait uite a while for that dish to be ready to be served In the meantime I was pleasantly surprised when this narrative took Bren to Mospheira I d been wanting to see that perspective for uite a while Now how did I miss that all previous paidhi did not speak with the atevi but communicated through written messages I can well see the huge change Bren would be and yes I had fun at seeing him deal with the university s obtuse members Cajeiri s side of the story was good but paled a little in comparisonI must admit I do wonder where Cherryh is going to take this I don t mind getting atevi politics but I don t want just that A mixture with Mospheira and the station mess would be nice and what would be really nice is Kyo and their war 0 One can wish
