Another stellar addition!

 

The depth of the Foreigner series continues to amaze. 
Bren's life just becomes more difficult as its realized that a ship of the Kyo is heading towards the atevi world.
Meanwhile the human station occupants--the Mospheirans and The Reunioners are in conflict with each other. Turmoil is rife at a very dangerous time with the Kyo drawing near. The Mosheirans have taken over the human side of the station. They want to react to the Kyo's presence one way. Bren and the atevi, another. Once more Bren, the Dowager, Tabini's young son, Cajeiri, and his on station friends, and of course Jase, are in the thick of things--to save their planet.
One good thing is that Dr. Virginia Kroger has been sent by the Mospheirans to take charge of the human side of the station.
The ongoing and overarching theme of communication with others like you and unlike you holds sway--as it has down through all the series.The gaps and holes and preconceptions we bring to a problem between differing cultures is explored and given teeth.
I can't say enough good things about this new episode. I loved it!
