The plot is still plodding along very slowly. Barely anything happens. ( )

"The Faded Sun: Shon'Jir" is the second book in CJ Cherryh's Faded Sun trilogy.

Duncan has a mission, involving the mri, but he knows that betrayal by his own people is part of his mission. How he handles life among the mri while trying to keep with his commander's orders makes a very good read, and continuation of the first book. Duncan (and we) learn more about the mri, about their customs, their history, and their chances of a future...a future in doubt, with two species bent on destroying them.

I got lost, again, in Ms. Cherryh's world, and am looking forward to doing it again in the third and final installment, "The Faded Sun: Kutath". ( )

First words
The mri was still sedated.
"You have chosen your service."
"Yes," he said. "With the People, she'pan." And when she still stared at him, troubled by his treachery: "On their side, she'pan, there are so many kel'ein one will not be missed. But on the side of the People, there is only one - twice that, with me. Humankind will not miss one kel'en."
Melein's eyes held to his, painfully intense. "Your mathematics is without reproach, kel Duncan."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879974532, Mass Market Paperback)

Sten Duncan had saved the lives of the last warrior and the last priestess-queen of mankind's enemies, the mri. He had come to understand their ways and to value their code of honor. When they planned their escape and he was ordered to trap them, Sten fled into space with them instead. Far across the cosmos was their forgotten homeworld. He could help them find it--and maybe there find the secret that had eluded the military masters of Terra.
