Review:

"An ill-fated encounter has forced Breq, the AI commanding the Radchaai troop carrier Justice of Toren, to take up residence in a single commandeered human body, impressive but mortal and no more powerful than any other person. Now this sorry wanderer searches the galaxy for a legendary weapon that may be able to do the impossible: grant Breq revenge on Anaander Mianaai, the many-bodied, immortal ruler of the brutal Radch. A double-threaded narrative proves seductive, drawing the reader into the naïve but determined protagonist's efforts to transform an unjust universe. 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." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Easily one of the finest political and sociological science fiction books in recent history, this has one several awards already and deserves them all. If you like classic writers like Ursula k le guin and Iain banks you will surely enjoy!

This is my favorite sci-fi book I've read this year. I was immediately drawn in by the disaggregated AI of the ship. The protagonist's capabilities are highlighted and you wonder what the protagonist is doing on such an out of the way planet. As the story unfolds and more information is presented, new novel questions are raised. The continues to be stimulate your curiosity without the feeling that it's hiding the ball. If Ms. Leckie's other work is this good, then I'm going to be a big fan of her work.
