Product description

Review

Thrilling, moving and awe-inspiring ― Guardian

Signals the arrival of a hard science fiction author who just might fill the gap left by Iain M. Banks. Ancillary Justice is a highly original novel . . . an intelligent slow-burner. Highly recommended ― Independent on Sunday

You will be truly astounded at how Leckie has fully fleshed out a universe and is asking and attempting to answer the difficult questions that many authors never even address in science fiction ― Buzzfeed

Unexpected, compelling and very cool - Ann Leckie nails it. I've never met a heroine like Breq before. I consider this a very good thing indeed -- John Scalzi (Hugo Award-winning author of REDSHIRTS)

Total gamechanger. Get it, read it, wish to hell you'd written it. Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice may well be the most important book Orbit have published in ages -- Paul Graham Raven

Establishes Leckie as an heir to Banks and Cherryh -- Elizabeth Bear

It's not every day a debut novel by an author you'd never heard of before derails your entire afternoon with its brilliance -- Liz Bourke ― Tor.com

Using the format of a SF military adventure blended with hints of space opera, Leckie explores the expanded meaning of human nature and the uneasy balance between individuality and membership in a group identity. Leckie is a newcomer to watch ― Library Journal (starred review)

Leckie's novel cast of characters serves her well-plotted story nicely. This is an altogether promising debut ― Kirkus

Our #1 pick for the year's best science fiction or fantasy book . . . this Iain M. Banks-esque tale was the book that made us most excited about the future of science fiction in 2013 ― io9.com

It engages, it excites, and it challenges the way the reader views our world. Leckie may be a former Secretary of the Science Fiction Writers of America, but she's the President of this year's crop of debut novelists. Ancillary Justice might be the best science fiction novel of this very young decade -- Justin Landon ― Staffer’s Book Review

The sort of book that the Clarke Award wishes it had last year ... be prepared to see Ancillary Justice bandied around a lot come awards season. (As it should be) -- Jared Shurin ― Pornokitsch

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 ― Publisher’s Weekly

Leckie's debut gives casual and hardcore sci-fi fans alike a wonderful read ― RT Book Reviews

First rate, rollicking space-opera with plenty of action, intrigue and adventure ... a fabulous debut ― The Skiffy and Fanty Show

A sharply written space opera . . . tackling ideas about politics and gender in a way that's both engaging and provacative . . . a gripping read that's well worth a look -- Saxon Bullock ― SFX Magazine
