Sequel to Alliance Rising. At Pell, with the Alliance lacking only two ships to be complete, the Monahans aboard Finity's End make a discovery that upends everything. Tense politicking and great danger lead to a rollicking good read. Highly recommended.

Note: there is at least one more book in the series still to come. And now I need to reread the rest of the Alliance/Union universe books.

Once again, Bren is largely passive in this installment, but his worry, anxiety, and misguided concerns provide a high level of tension. Cherryh is a master at dramatic irony. The reader clocks what is going on before Bren does, knows when Bren is misinterpreting the data, when Bren is being too human. She resists telling us about all the political subterfuge, just relates the events and Bren's attempts to understand them, realizing it may be totally off base but keeping us hopeful and frightened in the dark anyway. So much happens off the page, and the story is still interesting. How does she do it? And in the end, Bren is uniquely and embarrassingly human, and it is these final actions that puts him closer to being atevi than ever.

And can I just say, the aiji dowager is the best character in any book anywhere? Long before Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, there was Ilisidi, the aiji dowager and her exclamatory cane -- manipulative, aristocratic, cold-blooded and yet authentic and honorable in her own way. And with a political acumen that outpaces everyone except possibly Tabini.

Wow. Engrossing. Politics and alien cultures and conflicts and overcoming hurdles, and a BIG twist that I didn't see coming!

A lot slower than I was expecting, but I found the second half much more engaging and was happy with the payoff by the end. I'm not sure if it was just the ebook version I was reading from, but there were so many typos it was distracting, especially for an award winning novel. I may revisit the Alliance-Union Universe at some point, especially since Cyteen is on my list of award winners to read, as I did immensely enjoy the world building.
