Ancillary Justice (Imperial Radch #1)Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this book so much. This is my third time reading it.

I love Breq so hard. She is so badass and strong and brave. I love that Seivarden has no choice in the face of such awesomeness but to pledge complete loyalty and faith.

The world building here is complex and deep and interesting. The characters are so fascinating (a soldier out of time, a tyrant with an almost limitless reach and a personality disorder, a thousands year old AI who's been cut off from the hive mind), and the plot unfolds so beautifully as the narrative alternates timelines.

At the time I'm typing this, I'm a fourth of the way through the second book (also reading it for the third time) and anxious to finish so that I can read the final book which I haven't read yet.

I bounced hard off the time frame--I would have found it a lot easier to believe that the initial events were, say, 100 years ago instead of 1,000 and that Breq scraped Seivarden out of the gutter where she had been for two instead of twenty years. I just couldn't believe that things would remain essentially unchanged for that long!

Ooh I've heard good things about this and it's been on my wishlist for a while. Might be time to bump it up.
