Chanur's Homecoming: This is the third book in a trilogy which begain in the second book in The Chanur Saga volume. Yes I know that does seem to make sense, but The Chanur Saga contains three books in one. I like the book, it finished the trilogy off very well. I wasn't a fan of Cherryh before I started reading the Chanur books, but this more and more I read of them the more I like them and this one was I thought the best yet. There was some ssimilarity between The pride of Chanur and the trilog ...more

This omnibus volume contains the final two novels in one of my favorite SciFi series, the Chanur Saga by C.J. Cherryh. This is at least the second if not the third time I've read my way through the series, although I think it may be only the second time I've read the final novel, Chanur's Endgame. Cherryh has an uncanny knack in writing about alien species, albeit her aliens are invariably much like humans in their ways of thinking and acting. At least the hani are. I wonder if she'd ever consid ...more

Excellent scifi from the perspective of 'the aliens', where the humans appear more alien. Fun read with technical mumbo jumbo that gives the tech a real touch without overloading the reading in sci fi jargon. Lots of excellent characters, each with great personality and a lot of depth. Great for fans of furry or sci fi in general

Finished the book. made me quite sad. I didn't want it to end. Miss Cherryh has a way of creating worlds and characters that come to life. It was so good I didn't want

The Chanur series is among Cherryh's best. Highly recommended. I've read them all twice. Also check out the Merchanter series.
Brilliant story over 5 books. Excellent
