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*

Yes! I am torn between the first and the last; the first is such an excellent introduction to the world...but of course, the character-building and decision-making on a grander scale starts after that, and I found the third volume A+mazing.
