4.0 out of 5 stars Disapointment 4 Jun 2007
By Micron
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With great excitement I Pre ordered this book, expecting a continuation of the Chanur Saga.

Arrived this morning and discovered it was NOT a new Chanur at all, merely the last two books in the series, Chanur's Homecoming and Chanur's Legacy, forming an Omnibus edition.

Checked the details and this is not mentioned at all.

Never mind it will be enjoyed by my nephew who is also a fan of CJ.

I'm so happy I found this book! I've had the Chanur trilogy for over a decade and I despaired of ever finishing it! It's already out of print as far as I know so these books are going to be rare. Bonus: it's two books in one! Chanur's homecoming is the perfect ending to the Chanur trilogy & Chanur's legacy is sort of like a sequel starry Hilfy (Pyanfar's niece). Pyanfar is not in it anymore but you see Hilfy grown into her own as a captain of her own ship and you see how Pyanfar's "legacy" has changed the Compact. More politics, interspecies & interplanetary adventures! Here's hoping C.J. Cherryh decides to write more Chanur books...

Fabulous aliens... and that is just the humans!! Great yarn of intergalactic double dealing and deception. Absolutely necessary to read these stories in sequence to make sense of it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Have a very Cherryh Holiday 7 Dec 2007
By Pandababy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
For a very Cherryh Christmas (or Hannukah, or --?), give the SF fans on your list the five Chanur books in two omnibus volumes: The Chanur Saga, and Chanur's Endgame.

I liked the Chanur saga: The Pride of Chanur, Chanur's Venture and The Kif Strike Back, but I absolutely loved the Chanur's Endgame - the omnibus finis of the saga, with Chanur's Homecoming completing Pynafur's tale, and Chanur's Legacy moving on to the story of the mature Hilfy as captain of her own ship.

I had doubts that I could enjoy Hilfy's story as much as Pyanfur's books, but it was everything I could have hoped for. I give both books in Chanur's Endgame a five star rating - and if it were possible, I'd give it a ten.

Pyanfur's finale was full of political double-cross, suspenseful action, and the extremely alien aliens that Cherryh does so well. Pyanfur played for the highest possible stakes in a game of cross-species brinkmanship that would result in the destruction of her home world and her entire species if she made one false move.

Hilfy's story was an amusing revelation of the shto', and has an ending I'll never forget. I love the humor and the intelligence that permeates C.J. Cherryh's writing. This Science Fiction fan says of the Chanur books: highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good conclusion to series 21 Sep 2007
By Jonathan D. Herbst - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Cherryh continues to be an excellent writer. I've owned the entire series in hardcover for years. I've also, reread this series several times along with her other books. very few dissappoint. The alien viewpoints are among the best written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Pride and Chanur, the next generation. 17 April 2008
By G. E. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Really anyone (smart) who loves sci-fi should really love this set but only along with the Chanur Saga. Overall, this is one of my favorite series of all time, and it still holds up, but really by todays standards two books is about the correct size.

The entire Chanur story is a very cool one in which the Protagonist is a Lioness Privateer, along with her female cousins staking the families fortunes on their spacefaring business ventures. One day a hairless alien walks naked onto their loading dock bruised and bleeding, and thus begins the adventure. It makes for an interesting perspective, as the human is the alien, and thus has to have his words translated for the story.

In Chanurs Endgame, we find the end of that story in Chanur's Homecoming, and the first story in the next generation of the family in Chanur's Legacy, as Hilfy, Pyanfur's willful niece gets her own ship and insist on having her own way.

I hope that one day Ms. Cherryh might find it in her heart to grace us with a few more tales from Meetpoint Station. But in any case this is an excellent read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Continues The Chanur Saga! 28 Nov 2013

This is the last third of the Chanur trilogy and the sequel, Chanur's Legacy. Do not buy this unless you have The Chanur Saga. (A publisher's mistake; nothing on CJ Cherryh!)

Just about everything C. J. Cherryh writes is wonderful. I wish more of them could be purchased with my kindle.
