Chanur's Homecoming by C.J. Cherryh

This was today's book group book and I recommended it, thinking it would be easy to pick up the earlier story from the synposis. Then I read it again and realized many people were not going to like it because of the names and the strategy. I was right. The two of us who'd read the series before liked reading it again. The group made a rule about not reading mid-series books anymore.

This is the fourth Chanur book. The series takes place in Compact Space with six species, none human, and the single human left from an errant exploration ship. This book is all war and plotting and pretending to be allies with people they're not. Our protagonist's ship has less tech than her enemies' ships, but they manage to come through fairly well.
