Very interesting book full of creepy voodoo, magic and healing. This is a good tale of a girl transitioning to womanhood, going through some tough changes, and stepping into her grandmother's shoes to become the neighborhood healer.
A little political commentary, a little sex, a little abuse and torture - and a lot of peculiar characters, human and otherwise. Something for everyone.
Yes, I have recommended this series and will again. I am on book # 11 out of 15.
I get aggravated with the author at the beginning of each book and then she ropes me in and I HAVE to get the next one. C.J. Cherryh is a fabulous story teller, and the narrator is a marvel. Great voices for the characters. He's as amazing as the stories.
Probably the Dowager and her great grandson, Cajeiri. I loved hearing Cajeiri learn how to think and reason politically. It was a wonderful example of how people maneuver through the minefields of politics. I've always HATED politics, and now I'm rethinking that. I'm not kidding.
All of them. Especially the Dowager.
Atevi ... they are hardwired to handle emotions very differently than humans. Can the PeaceMaker adjust to the strange ways and bring the alien races together?
C.J. Cherryh writes the most engaging action sequences of anyone I've ever read. And she does it consistently. Very impressive. The only series I have ever enjoyed more was Dune.
And possibly the Tales Of The Otori series by Lian Hearn.
