Love this series. ( )

Chanur's Legacy by CJ Cherryh. This is the five story in the Chanur universe. It is a stand alone story, which does not directly interact with the previous four books. However events from those books influence the actions of the main character. This story is quite amusing as a young Captain Hilfy accepts a trading contract that becomes much more complex than first expected. The story also explores the social and cultural mores of their species. I recommend this book highly. I so wish there were many more books set in this particular universe. Cherryh writes so well that I really want more of these stories. ( )

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. ( )
