the story is unpredictable but also chaotic and difficult to decipher at times, but you care for the characters in the end
I think that's one of the strong points of Cherryh's writing, i.e., you become involved with the characters. Although I admit that I sometimes want to give some of them a kick in the pants to get them to do what they should (or what I perceive they should).
