Ancillary Justice

They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now. The Radch are conquerors to be feared - resist and they'll turn you into a 'corpse soldier' - one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship's AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people. The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed - but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation. Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale. But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.

Zitat
Unexpected, compelling and very cool - Ann Leckie nails it. I've never met a heroine like Breq before. I consider this a very good thing indeed. -- John Scalzi (Hugo Award-winning author of REDSHIRTS) Total gamechanger. Get it, read it, wish to hell you'd written it. Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice may well be the most important book Orbit have published in ages. -- Paul Graham Raven It's not every day a debut novel by an author you'd never heard of before derails your entire afternoon with its brilliance. -- Liz Bourke Tor.com Using the format of a SF military adventure blended with hints of space opera, Leckie explores the expanded meaning of human nature and the uneasy balance between individuality and membership in a group identity. Leckie is a newcomer to watch. Library Journal (starred review) Leckie's novel cast of characters serves her well-plotted story nicely. This is an altogether promising debut. Kirkus We are incredibly excited about this first novel from Leckie. io9.com (included in 'This Fall's Must-Read Science Fiction and Fantasy Books') It engages, it excites, and it challenges the way the reader views our world. Leckie may be a former Secretary of the Science Fiction Writers of America, but she's the President of this year's crop of debut novelists. Ancillary Justice might be the best science fiction novel of this very young decade. -- Justin Landon Staffer's Book Review The sort of book that the Clarke Award wishes it had last year ... be prepared to see Ancillary Justice bandied around a lot come awards season. (As it should be). -- Jared Shurin Pornokitsch Leckie uses familiar set pieces-an expansionist galaxy-spanning empire, a protagonist on a single-minded quest for justice-to transcend space-opera conventions in innovative ways. This impressive debut succeeds in making Breq a protagonist readers will invest in, and establishes Leckie as a talent to watch closely. Publisher's Weekly Leckie's debut gives casual and hardcore sci-fi fans alike a wonderful read. RT Book Reviews First rate, rollicking space-opera with plenty of action, intrigue and adventure ... a fabulous debut. The Skiffy and Fanty Show A sharply written space opera ... tackling ideas about politics and gender in a way that's both engaging and provacative ... a gripping read that's well worth a look. -- Saxon Bullock SFX Magazine
