A Foreigner Novel, No 12

by Nicole Merritt
Twelfth in the series, the Foreigner universe is still busy at
work. All the characters are by now like old friends and loyal readers
will more than likely enjoy the new intrigue set before Bren Cameron
with his opponent Lord Machigi. Machigi has never before seen a
human and it is Bren’s job to negotiate an end to the civil
war with the Western Association.
I would say that if you are new to the series as I am you should
probably not start here, as you will be lost in the battle. I have
read many a series that I started mid-way and found them still very
good and easy to follow. This one, however, may give the reader
a challenge because of all the political implications.
With sixty books to her credit, yes I said her; author C.J. seems
to have gotten it right. This book, 12th in this series, is as good
as the first, according to avid followers. I would give it a try
if you like sci-fi, but pick up the first few and read them so you
can follow all the factions. I am sure it would make it much more
fun and keep you from scratching your head with the pages.
