Absolutely splendid. However, if the elements you enjoyed in the Ancillary series were the space opera, sci-fi setting, AI), you may want to look elsewhere. For me, the most moving features of the Ancillary series are present here- spare, powerful prose, flawed human characters and at the centre, a unique perspective I’ve returned to time and time again. I have reread the final lines at least ten times.
One can call it poetic fantasy if we must put it in a box, but I recommend reading a sample first if you’re unsure. For me, Leckie is one of those authors I buy without reading a review.
