All three books in C.J. Cherryh's epic The Faded Sun trilogy, Kesrith, Shon'jir, and Kutath, collected in one volume. They were the mri--tall, secretive, bound by honor and the rigid dictates of their society. For aeons this golden-skinned, golden-eyed race had provided the universe mercenary soldiers of almost unimaginable ability. But now the mri have faced an enemy unlike any other--an enemy whose only way of war is widespread destruction. These "humans" are mass fighters, creatures of the herb, and the mri have been slaughtered like animals. Now, in the aftermath of war, the mri face extinction. It will be up to three individuals to save whatever remains of this devastated race: a warrior--one of the last survivors of his kind; a priestess of this honorable peop≤ and a lone human--a man sworn to aid the enemy of his own kind. Can they retrace the galaxy-wide path of this nomadic race back through millennia to reclaim the ancient world that first gave them life?… (mais)

    reading_fox: Same basic sort of premise - SciFi set on desert worlds inspires the rise of a galactic empire, but very different outcomes!

1.[Kesrith] Gets the full stars as no way I could stop reading. The humans have finally beaten the regul and as booty, get (among others) the planet Kesrith, also home to some of the mri warriors, in the employ of the regul. All three cultures struggle to comprehend one another, but most of the time the regul and humans understand one another (doesn't mean like one another) since both value rationality, logic, learning, etc even if in radically different ways. The mri are almost impossible to understand and are very misunderstood by both cultures. Enter SurTac Sten Duncan (essentially Special Forces, semi-autonomous etc) who ends up with the mri. Can't say more without spoiling. Wait, the mri have a somewhat symbiotic relationship with some semi-intelligent animals, the dusei (kinda like bears but way more complicated). The mri fit in the cherished Cherryh category with some traits that seem to fit the feline profile, but just barely in this case. Their culture is fascinating! *****

2. [Shon Jir] In this second of the trilogy, Duncan travels with the she-pan, Melein and Niun to Kutath, the home world of the mri. The distances are unimaginable involving scores of jumps and many years. On the way what they see chills them (can't say w/o spoiling). Also, on the way, Duncan works tirelessly with Niun, to learn the customs and language of the mri, to become, in short, a true mri. They arrive on a planet in the last phase, water is almost all evaporated, plants and animals hard-pressed. But there are still mri. And they are still in much danger from humans and regul who have followed them. And plenty of mystery as well. This was a true 'middle' book, setting the stage for the final confrontations. What is most interesting is how Melein and Niun make their way among their kindred, 80,000 years separated, (and due to the rigidity of their ways, not that different), and how Duncan is adopted into the greater population. *****
3. [Kuthath]Can't say much about this last volume without spoilage, but the question is how will the mri manage to survive with the regul absolutely hell-bent on destroying them and the human 'allies' having trouble distinguishing between self-interest and ethical behaviour. (If you do unto others what you consider a crime to have done unto you . . . what does that make you?). My only gripe is that at the last minute (and I mean that, the last 100 or so pages) a new element is introduced, hinted at earlier but maybe not quite enough?), to explain an aspect of the mri . . . to me, done a bit awkwardly. I give this final tome ****1/2 because of it -- overall the trilogy is a ***** star read, no question. Cherry's gift is for plunging a human into an alien world and then, as it were, observing what happens! This is done beautifully throughout -- including making the dus, the emotionally connected bearlike creatures integral. For the entirety *****. ( )

This one I found less engaging than those novels that take place earlier in the timeline of Cherryh's Alliance-Union universe.

I like this rating system by ashleytylerjohn of LibraryThing (https://www.librarything.com/profile/ashleytylerjohn) that I have also adopted:
(Note: 5 stars = rare and amazing, 4 = quite good book, 3 = a decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful.) ( )

This is, by far, one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read. Is it going to go down in history as the most well written book of our time? No. Still, I have yet to enjoy reading a book more than I have enjoyed this trilogy, and that includes some classics of Sci-Fi Fantasy such as The Lord of the Rings. ( )

Wind-child, sun-child, what is Kath?
Child-bearers, life-bringers, that is Kath.


It was a game, shon'ai, the passing-game, Kel-style, in the dim round hall of the Kel, the middle tower of the House--black-robed men and a black-robed woman, a circle of ten.
