Foreigner: Foreigner Sequence 1, Book 1 - Daniel Thomas May, Audible Studios, C.J. Cherryh

"Five administrations have kept the peace, under the aijiin of Shejidan and the dictates of the paidhiin..."

 

"We don't dictate."

 

"The iron-fisted suggestions of the paidhiin. Backed by a space station and technology we don't dream of."

 

It's been a long day, in which my work To Do list has become quite a bit larger (September and October are the worst, OMG). Even so, the "iron-fisted suggestions of the paidhiin" bit still managed to make me laugh.

 

I'm definitely going to make sure that my first time through any of the books in this series is always via paper or e-books, but I enjoyed this audiobook enough to want to keep getting them. I'll be spending a credit on Invader.
