Ancillary Justice

{5/5} “I  had no reason to think badly of her. On the contrary, her manners were those of an educated, well-bred person of good family. Not toward me, of course — I wasn’t a person, I was a piece of equipment, a part of the ship. But I had never particularly cared for her.”

Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie, published in 2013

Breq used to be an ancillary — used to be part of a ship — but was now alone. She has business to take care of — she’s on the trail of a gun she’ll use to kill the Lord of the Radch. But Breq stops and rescues Seivarden, who would have otherwise died — she knew Seivarden years ago when she was a ship and Seivarden was a lieutenant.

The story grabs you right away and pulls you into its unique world.

It’s about what happens when you — a person or a ship — have thousands of bodies. It’s about what it means to be human, and what it means to be a good human.

The stunning climax ensures that you’ll read the sequel.

This is the 1st book by Leckie I’ve read.

  1. James Says:

    The rest of the trilogy is great! But the second and third books form more of a unit together, which I wish I had known beforehand…
