A sequel to the wonderful Chanur Saga books. It's not quite as good as the previous stories, but still a very good follow up. ( )

Even in the 5th book, this series still is worth reading, and really hasn't dropped off any in quality. The Hani continue to try and figure out the muddle of galactic politics while still siding with the humans, trying to make kif allies, and keeping their own interstellar trade options open. These books really have a unique quality of plot and action. ( )

The four Chanur universe books are my favorite books in the entire universe. Bar none. Cherryh slyly takes on sex, gender, culture, first contact, money, and power, among other issues, all in a rollicking good adventure story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0886775590, Mass Market Paperback)

A game of interstellar politics in which Hilfy Chanur and her vessel Legacy are commissioned to transport a small, mysterious religious object. The price is extremely generous, perhaps too generous.

Hilfy had been crew on THE PRIDE OF CHANUR when her Aunt Pyanfar, captain of the THE PRIDE, gave shelter and protection to the human Tully, shattering the equilibrium of Meetpoint Station and disrupting the complex power balances which existed between the seven races of the Compact. Tully was the sole surviving member of an expedition sent by his own race, a race previously unknown in Compact space, and his presence added a dangerous and potentially deadly element to the intricate interspecies rivalries of Meetpoint. For the information this fugitive held--the potential of a trade contract with a new species--could be the ruin or glory of any of the worlds in Compact space. Pyanfar's actions pitched her crew into the center of a galactic maelstrom which imperiled the peace of the Compact itself. But in the end she won a treasure beyond measuring--the trade contract with Earth.… (more)
