Summary

The stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning Ancillary Justice.
For just a moment, things seem to be under control for the soldier known as Breq. Then a search of Atheok Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist - someone who might be an ancillary from a ship that's been hiding beyond the empire's reach for three thousand years.
In the meantime, a messenger from the alien and mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai - ruler of an empire that's at war with itself.
Anaander is heavily armed and extremely unhappy with Breq. She could take her ship and crew and flee, but that would leave everyone at Athoek in terrible danger. Breq has a desperate plan. The odds aren't good, but that's never stopped her before.

Please don't stop there

I loved this third book in the series, and hope Ann Leckie does not stop there. I am wishing for inspiration to strike and more books in the series. Also Adjoa Andoh's reading of the series has been stellar. I have loved her intimacy and character voices. Many thanks to you both.

4 out of 5 stars

First book was great, second- OK, third- cozy

The first book of the series introduced a number of novel and powerful concepts, such as ancillaries, multi-body AIs, multi-body 'humans', disregard for physical gender. The highly unusual main character and how her nature was revealed gradually made for a great read. I would certainly rate it at 5 stars if I had Ancillary Justice on the Audible.
The following two books of the series make for a cozy read where domestic routines take centre stage and it is hard to take any plot developments seriously. Glimpses of the Radj Space culture provided in the first book are not developed any further, so we are stuck with the endless references to tea drinking. The third book introduces a number of new curious characters and resolves in a more or less satisfying way, making it second best to the first.
