The first book in C.J.Cherryh's eponymous series, Foreigner begins an epic tale of the survivors of a lost spacecraft who crash-land on a planet inhabited by a hostile, sentient alien race.  From its beginnings as a human-alien story of first contact, the Foreigner series has become a true science fiction odyssey, following a civilization from the age of steam through early space flight to confrontations with other alien species in distant sectors of space. It is the masterwork of a truly remarkable author.

4.0 Foreigner: (10th Anniversary Edition)
I have to say that I am biased as she is one of my favorite story tellers and can write no wrong. If you dare, be ready to commit to a 16 or is it 17 book relationship for this series.

I came across her name in several places simultaneously, one of them being Jo Walton's "If you like the Vorkosigan books" post on Tor.com. She said, "There’s a lot of thematic similarity, but ...
