Ancillary Sword (Imperial Radch #2)Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


On the third read, I love this book even more than the first in the series if such a thing is possible.

I love Breq so hard. I love the way she begins by making alliances with the marginalized and that she always tries to correct injustices (even while acknowledging that some injustices cannot be corrected adequately or safely). The specter of Lt. Awn hangs over all her decisions.

I love that her crew begins wary of her and ends fiercely loyal. I think Ship cares about Breq more than Breq may think. Ships don't love other ships? Ha!

The ending always makes me cry: Seivarden coming to the rescue in the nick of time, Breq losing it and blurting out who she truly is and what she's done in front of everyone, Ship knowing that Breq misses being one of many and sending one of the humans to snuggle her. Oh, my heart. *sniffle*

Ancillary Mercy (Imperial Radch #3)Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Oh, Breq! Of course, Ship loves you and all your crew, too. And Seivarden loves you. And so does Station. I teared up so many times reading this book.

I loved Translator Zeiat. I laughed out loud when she threw up all the crap she'd been eating along with the bullets from the Presger gun.

I have to admit I was having a hard time figuring out how this series was going to draw to a close, and I love the way Leckie did it. I love Breq declaring herself and the other AIs as a new nation and essentially hoisting the Lord of the Rach by her own petard. The ending was fantastic, and I love that it leaves the field wide open should Leckie want to write any more stories in this universe.
