Publisher Description


The record-breaking debut novel that won every major science fiction award in 2014, Ancillary Justice is the story of a warship trapped in a human body and her search for revenge.

Ann Leckie is the first author to win the Arthur C. Clarke, the Nebula and the Hugo Award for Best Novel in the same year.

They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now.

The Radch are conquerors to be feared - resist and they'll turn you into a 'corpse soldier' - one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship's AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people.
The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed - but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation. Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale.
But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.

The Imperial Radch trilogy begins with Ancillary Justice, continues in Ancillary Sword and concludes with Ancillary Mercy.
Also available now: Provenance is a stunning standalone adventure set in the same world as Ancillary Justice. NPR calls it 'A fitting addition to the Ancillary world'.

Greentor ,

Engaging, complex and exciting

A really good read and definitely looking forward to the sequel.

Disappointed big time

I really honestly don't get what's the rave about this book. It's so boring. Very disappointing. And the gender issue is just confusing, irritating and forced, it's cheap. It would have been a lot more effective just to write a good book. Most free books are better, I want my money and my time back! Such a waste.

Well written but.....

I'm not sure if this is simply a 'not for me' book or whether there is something more to it. I read the first 4 chapters and simply found that I wasn't enjoying it, which was disappointing given the plaudits that the book has received by other readers and the press. I think in the end that it simply didn't grip me so I returned it.
