The Faded Sun Trilogy - C.J. Cherryh This is the first work by Cherryh that I read and it is still one of the best. Themes of cultural conflict, political intrigue that will recur in different forms in her later books can be found here along with a story line that kept me up nights. I read through the whole trilogy in four days. Her world building skills are second to none in the Sci Fi arena and she manages to create characters that stay with you long after you are done reading.
