Brothers of Earth: The leader of the Hana was a Priestess-Ruler in a world of humanoid aliens. Yet she was more closely related to her human prisoner, Kurt Morgan, though their star nations had been bitter enemies for two thousand years. She granted Kurt Moragn his lfie, but for a price: that he remain indebted to his captors, immersed in an alien environment which threatened to drive him mad. Beset with doubts, Kurt accepted the terms of his capture and despite his misgivings became intrigued with his life.   For he shared something unique with his captor—both of them had survived the destruction of their worlds. And then they realized that the world on which they now lived was on the brink of a devastating war, and they were perhaps the only two sentient beings there who understood the ultimate sacrifice that might come from such a conflict. Could they save this world, or would they die with their adopted planet, humanity’s orphans at the edge of space   Hunter of Worlds: The Iduve were the most advanced spacefaring race in the galaxy. They traveled where they pleased in giant city-sized vessels, engrossed with their own affairs. The Iduve were humanoid, but they differed from Earth’s own humans in one significant way: they were pure predators incapable of human emotion.   Aiela was a world-survey officer who found himself abducted to serve the Iduve clanship Ashanome. Forcibly mind-linked with two other captives, life for Aiela became wholly dedicated to the service of his captors.   But then the Ashanome came to the world of Priamos, a war-torn planet caught in a struggle between humans and the alien race known as the amaut. When she discovered that her fugitive brother was hiding there, Chimele, leader of the Ashanome, was willing to sacrifice this entire world to destroy him. And Priamos’ only hope for survival lay with Aiela and his fellow captives…… (more)

I completed the first book in this series of two...why was I surprised that it was very good?

"Brothers of Earth" takes us into unknown space, with a human stranded on a planet of beings on the verge of war.

As I read, I found myself thinking, "This is like a SciFi/Fantasy version of 'Shogun'"!

Ms. Cherryh, consider that comment as a compliment. ( )

These two books: Brothers of Earth & Hunter of Worlds, are CJ Cherryh's first two books, and it shows. I read them after the Chanur and was disappointed. I was expecting these books to be on the same level of expertise as later works. I am glad she wrote them and that I read them. She learned how to write on these two books. But, I don't plan on rereading them. ( )

Endymion died soundlessly, a man-made star that glowed and winked quickly out of existence. (Brothers of Earth)
