"One of the best long-running SF series in existence" (Publishers Weekly) continues with the second novel in a brand-new Foreigner sequence.
The civil war among the alien Atevi has ended. Tabini-aiji, powerful ruler of the Western Association, along with Cajeiri, his son and heir, has returned to the Bujavid, his seat of power. But factions that remain loyal to the opposition are still present, and the danger these rebels pose is far from over.

While this book is not the strongest entry in the series I will continue to read more books by this author.
The ending was very abrupt. I felt like I was in the middle of the story and found out several pages were missing.
The preformance was on par with his usual high quality.
The deciever is a link in a series and I would feel betrayed if there wasn't more to tie up the dangling threads of the story lines.
Deciever was a mild disappointment for me. The storyline dragged a little and the ending was so abrupt that I was in disbelief when the audible credits came on. If it hadn't been in the middle of the series I would not reccommend it. The poor ending colored the rest of the book for me.
1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)
More and more in the series we see Cajeiri his actions and there consequences !!!

This is again not really a review because the full review is in the first book int eh sequence, but this whole group of books has still stayed good all the way up to this point and to be honest at the end as well, or up to the 15th book as of this review that's all that's out now.
I certainly would. The plot is so very interesting. I finished it at one go. Didn't sleep all night finishing at daybreak.
I love Daniel Thomas May's performance. He made the characters come to life!
Yes indeed. I got o engrossed that I forego sleep just to complete the book.
I can't wait for the next book!!
The story continues... Bren continues to be pivotal in the story as is the Dowager and the heir. Well paced, still exciting. Thoroughly enjoyable.
