Chanur’s Venture by CJ Cherryh. This is a re-read of the book for me. In this story the Mahendo’sat machinations involves the Chanur space ship to become a courier for Tully and documents that could.

I needed a good read so I downloaded the digital version of this series that I had read years ago. Once I started reading it, I remembered how much I had loved the series the first time. This is an incredibly good series. CJ Cherryh is a master at creating species and cultures. Her imagination is simply unparalleled in SciFi. Each species is fully fleshed-out and the level of detail and insight into the species she created is so thorough that they seem real and you want to know more about them. Very intriguing and believable. Her principal characters, the Hani, are one of the most interesting species I've ever read about and her main character, Pyanfar, is someone you want to root for. I loved the series and I'm going to buy digital versions of all her other books so I can reread them all. Highly recommended.

Adventures continue as we continue to follow the Chanur Captain who is finally getting back to normal after the fallout from her saving Tully, from the newly found Human Species. This doesn't last long. Goldtooth returns and secretly brings Tully back, surreptitiously transferring him in a cargo container back to the Pride. Big trouble follows.

Great series but need to read in book order. Unlike other sci-fi, this is told from the alien viewpoint instead of the human. In fact the human is pretty much helpless and not able to communicate very well. He's the center that drives the action, but he has little to do himself. He's not even a human with any particular authority, other than he has been frantically working on a human / hani vocabulary, and has carried documents from Earth to the Compact. Very different and refreshing.

The beginning of the Chanur trilogy that picks up from the Pride of Chanur, which was a complete story by itself. "Venture" begins two years later after "Pride." The windfall of human trade has not materialized for Chanur because of the treachery of the Mahendo'sat. The series is fast paced and entertaining. It would make a fantastic movie. The surprises, the tension, the exploration of bigotry and xenophobia, it all grabs you and keeps your attention. It is also kind of upbeat compared to some of Cherryh's other works (which are still good and worth the reads).

Nominated for the Locus SF Award in 1985 this tale of a feline space traveling race has aged well. Fast pace(a busy 95 pages),modest body count and likable characters with locale moving back and forth between space stations and ship board,C. J. Cherryh has crafted appealing world building with Chanur's Venture,the second of a four part series. Recommended.

Wonderful story, but the translation to kindle can lead to some confusion. For example, in the print version there is an obvious break, multiple empty rows, when there is a change in perspective or a time change. The kindle book doesn't capture that so sometimes I have to reread passages to understand them correctly.

More alien adventures with the lovely and deadly Pyanfar Chanur. And welcome back to Tully, the lone human in these stories, and an excellent counterpoint to remind us that we may not be the top of the food chain. Chanur's Venture

I don't really understand why Kindle would offer Chanur's Venture and The Kif Strike Back, but not Chanur's Homecoming which is the final book in the series. If you are planning to read this on Kindle, be aware that you won't be able to finish the trilogy. Chanur's Homecoming is out of print, so only available currently via libraries and used bookstores. It is available via audiobook, too.
I've been a big fan of C.J. Cherryh since I bought one of her paperbacks for 10 cents when I was a teenager. She has great character development, heck, she creates whole species with language and customs. The science is actually a bit above my level of understanding but this does not detract from the story one bit. Love, love, love her stuff!
