The first time I read the set of Chanur books, I finished them in one long marathon effort, then immediately turned around and reread them again immediately. They are just that darned enthralling. I consider books 2 through five to be in the top twenty books I have had the pleasure of reading! [The first book is not as fine a read - but is still good and it sets the stage for the rest.]
The first four books of the Chanur series [this is the fourth] follow Hani Captain Pyanfar Chanur's thought and actions as captain has to puzzle out changes in the behavior of the Kif [a race that is as foreign a space-faring species as you can get and still be an oxygen-breathing one] and a strange mostly-hairless new race that is a stranger to "Compact space". The Compact is a region of stars occupied by a several space-faring civilizations. The Compact is neither a political organization, nor a government; it only regulates open trade and accessibility of space stations to all civilizations- oxygen and methane breathers alike, leaving them to resolve their conflicts and politics between themselves. It is up to Pyanfar to navigate the threats to her ship and clan and eventually all of Compact itself that is brought about by her decision to shelter a single strange creature.
Fantastic book of a fantastic series! It's only flaw is that she's not written more then 5 of these books about the Compact region.
