5.0 out of 5 stars Very good read 10 Mar 2012
By Hydra
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book, though it is calmer and more thoughtful than previous volumes in the sequence. I liked the explanations of Assassin Guild politics provided by Tabini and Algini - they have clarified much that had been left hanging in previous books. The Guild machinations are fascinating. The descriptions of objects such as porcelains (particularly the two southern vases) and textiles, and clothing are as usual wonderful and add much colour and interest to the book. It is good to see more of Tabini, and to get to know him better as a character. It's also great to see him start to establish a rapport with his son - and to hear from Ilisidi how Tabini himself was just as precocious as a child, and that he spent time with her at Malguri. And it's marvellous that Bindanda and Narani (that wonderful old man!) have reappeared. One looks forward to more descriptions of sumptuous meals in future books...

Another thing I like is that there is much less repetition in this book than there was in the previous volumes, presumably because they were all meant to be stand-alone titles, which never quite worked.

There is much less action and tension here than in previous titles, and more of politics. Possibly we needed a calmer volume that didn't include pell-mell action, and that had the space to provide some detailed explanations about the politics behind the actions. I feel it provides a deeper insight into the Atevi as a species. I would perhaps have liked interesting characters such as Machigi, Geigi and Ilisidi to have met up earlier, rather than at the end of the book - but whenever they do appear they stand out. It would also have been good to see Tabini meet with Machigi, but hopefully this will happen in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intruder (Foreigner series) 1 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As usual very difficult to put down. Slightly different from the previous books in the series with more about the politics and intrigue. In some ways more interesting but just as absorbing as all the other books in the series

2.0 out of 5 stars Time to stop 21 Jan 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
The plotlines are getting thinner and the style is becoming increasingly formulaic - as if the text, and especially the dialogue, were computer-generated. And one irritating aspect of earlier volumes (endless fussing over Toby and Barb) has been replaced by equally tedious, puerile musings by Cajeiri that would not be of any interest to an audience above YA. FAR too much padding. This should be a quarter of the actual size, and the style needs drastic revision/revitalising.

Another great book in the series. What more is there to say, another very enjoyable book in the Foreigner series.
