    Story
    "Manima Comes Into Her Own"
    If you could sum up Explorer in three words, what would they be?

    It's About Time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ilisidi and Bren Cameron. Illisidi comes into her own in this story, showing how life experience can very often save a potentially fatal situation, and Bren comes through with his ability to finesse communications between differing species.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Thomas May’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in other books of this series and every one of them was perfectly read by Daniel Thomas May.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yup.


    Any additional comments?

    In a time where being old is akin to being superfluous and powerless, it's a great pleasure to remember what role our most life-experienced members of society have to offer those just getting their start. This story brings Bren, and the Atevi through perilous times and circumstance based on the actions of the youngest and eldest members of their society. A story of self-discipline, loyalty and open-mindedness that can't be put down until the end.

    "Very satisfying"

    I've waited until the 6th book in Cherryh's series before writing a review. I've enjoyed the two sequences, especially this conclusion to the second series, very much. I look forward to continuing with the 3rd sequence soon. Bren Cameron continues to be the main focus in the story and must rely on everything that he has learned and has become to save the day. The introduction of the young Atevi ruler in waiting is also especially well done. The story is much more action packed and intense than the other two in this sequence, not that they were bad, just that this one is so much better. May does such a good narrating this series that I clearly identify his voice characterizations with each character, all clearly distinctive.

    Plenty of intrigue, further exploration of the different cultures, and the building relationship between the humans and the Atevi's. This series builds slowly, which may not be for everyone. I, for one, enjoy the pace very much. I highly recommend this series very much.
