C. J. Cherryh

Updated Monday, 06 January, 2014

I?m sure I?ve read at least one of C. J. Cherryh?s Chanur novels, but it was some time ago, and I can?t remember which one. The books that I have read recently were all good. Foreigner and its sequel, Invader, are both somewhat complicated, but well worth reading. They deal with a group of humans interacting with an alien race. The Goblin Mirror is a fantasy novel, and was also very good. The Sword of Knowledge trilogy is some of the best writting I've ever read.

Books I've Read by C. J. Cherryh

The Goblin Mirror (Mass Market Paperback) or (Hardcover edition)
The Goblin Mirror


Things weren?t right in the little kingdom of Maggiar, not right at all. So the princes Bogdan and Tamas set off to seek an answer to the kingdom?s troubles in the land over-mountain, a world they knew only from legends. And Yuri, the youngest prince, chafing at being left behind, soon followed them . . .

But the land over-mountain was in turmoil, for the goblins had declared war. The kingdoms the princes had come to find had all been ravaged. No sooner had the brothers crossed out of Maggian than their party was ambushed. Bogdan was carried away to the fortress of the goblin queen herself. Yuri wandered lost through an evil wood, in search of his brothers. And Tamas was caught up in darkest sorcery, for he fell in with Ela, a witch?s apprentice . . .

Ela possessed a shard of the goblin queen?s magic mirror. With that single sliver of the queen?s great power, she planned to challenge the goblin queen herself. And Tamas would be the focus of her battle . . . (book description)
