APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The action in Provenance unfolds in the same galaxy as Ann Leckie’s best-selling Ancillary trilogy but centres on a different planet. To secure her position as heir to her family’s power and impress her mother, young Ingray decides to recover stolen ancestral relics, but her hastily assembled plan quickly goes awry. Leckie is as skilled at intimate family conflict as sweeping world-building. While Provenance has plenty of propulsive space drama, it’s also a sensitive examination of a young woman’s journey toward belonging and self-worth.
