Provenance

{4.5/5} “I do not want to be out of the world, it is terrible to be out of the world. But I look, I see, I hear, I listen. You are very strange, Ingray Human, but you do not seem to live in endless pain and sorrow. No, you swim here as though this were the world, and live your very strange life as though all was right and well.”

Provenance by Ann Leckie, published in 2017

Ingray puts together a scheme to impress her foster-mother. Borrowing against her future allowance, she arranges to get Pahlad Budrakim out of Compassionate Removal. But when she opens the suspension pod the person in it says e’s not Pahlad. Ingray knows that this failure will cause her to be disowned. Then she finds out that the ship she’s on was stolen from the Geck.

This book is set in the same universe as Leckie’s Imperial Radch trilogy.

It’s about forgeries, wrongful conviction, murder, and different types of families.

You will have trouble putting it down.

I’ve read 4 books by Leckie. I previously reviewed Ancillary Mercy.
