Product description

Review

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)

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)

We are incredibly excited about this first novel from Leckie. (io9.com (included in 'This Fall's Must-Read Science Fiction and Fantasy Books'))

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) --This text refers to the digital edition.

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
