Publisher's Summary

The sequel to Ancillary Justice, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, British Science Fiction, Locus, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards.
Breq is a soldier who used to be a warship. Once a weapon of conquest controlling thousands of minds, now she has only a single body and serves the emperor.
With a new ship and a troublesome crew, Breq is ordered to go to the only place in the galaxy she would agree to go: to Athoek Station to protect the family of a lieutenant she once knew - a lieutenant she murdered in cold blood.

Critic Reviews

"Ancillary Justiceis a gripping read that's well worth a look." (SFX)
"A double-threaded narrative proves seductive, drawing the reader into the naive but determined protagonist's efforts to transform an unjust universe." (Publishers Weekly)
"It"s not every day a debut novel by an author you'd never heard of before derails your entire afternoon with its brilliance. But when my review copy of Ancillary Justice arrived, that's exactly what it did. In fact, it arrowed upward to reach a pretty high position on my list of best space opera novels ever." (Liz Bourke, Tor.com)

Good, but the shift in pronunciation was jarring.

I enjoyed the book, but the difference in pronunciation between Justice and Sword was jarring. I greatly preferred Justice's versions, as they felt more smooth and understandable.

ok for sequel

What did you like best about Ancillary Sword? What did you like least?

Completely different league relative to the first book. Lacks in every aspect, for me if was big disappointment. Strong feeling that the author really needed to have a sequel by certain deadline but didn't have any ideas. The first book is outstanding, so maybe my expectations were too high...

Would you be willing to try another book from Ann Leckie? Why or why not?

Maybe, after all it couldn't be much worse

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was significantly worse than the first book, even characters names did not fit! It felt like bad translation.

Was Ancillary Sword worth the listening time?

Not really, finished it mainly to honor the first book.

Any additional comments?

Please change the narrator back!
