Ann Leckie has done it again. Another great story

Provenance is set in the same universe as Ann Leckie's Radch novels. Like them it is thought provoking without being "heavy". The story is well paced & the narration by Adjoa Andoh is perfect.

A bit of a letdown after Ancillary series

Same universe, many of the same elements as the Breq stories but an annoying whiny lead character and a faintly silly storyline. None of the interesting collective AI aspects.

Gripping story well told.

I like the universe Ann has created and the characters she has invented. They come to life through Adjoa’s brilliant narration. I find Ingray is a little too drippy particularly toward the end.

Another book or two about the conclave would be nice. And I want to know what a preska looks like.

Heard the series so far and will definitely continue when Ann writes the next one.

Slow paced but interesting

Set in the same universe as the Ancillary Justice books, this story is a change of pace. It's more of a political / mystery story. The characters are interesting and many turn out to be more than they seem as the story progressed. I wasn't enthralled but I was entertained and I certainly have no regrets buying this book.
If you loved Ancillary Justice trilogy you'll probably like this book.
