Michael Whelan - Cover Art for Foreigner by C.J. Cherryh (1993)In the small hours of yesterday morning I finished reading the third trilogy in C.J. Cherryh's Foreigner series. It isn't often that a novel keeps me awake half the night, but each of the nine Foreigner books has done so. Michael Whelan's excellent cover art for the first book in the series shows Bren Cameron, the sole human allowed on the Atevi mainland, guarded by two aliens of the Assassins Guild. And he needs them! This year DAW Books Inc published a 10th Anniversary Edition of Foreigner, so you should be able find it in your local library. Visit Fantastic Fiction for details of C.J. Cherryh's award-winning novels (CLICK). The title link takes you to Michael Whelan's website for a treat of fantasy art.
