Of all the CJ Cherryh books, why Serpent's Reach? Not that it's not a good book, but why that one in particular?

It's the first of her Alliance Union books from the Union PoV that I read, also I've a weakness for both well done aliens & immortal protagonists.
Dreamsnake is the only one of those I've read.

Oh, I love Diane Duane. I'll confess I don't much of the rest on your list, though I recognize a good many authors.
