Publisher's Summary

The stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke award-winning Ancillary Justice.

For a moment things seemed to be under control for Breq, the soldier who used to be a warship. Then a search of Athoek Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist, and a messenger from the mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai - ruler of an empire at war with itself.

Breq refuses to flee with her ship and crew because that would leave the people of Athoek in terrible danger. The odds aren't good, but that's never stopped her before.

    "Boring"

    Honestly, the first book was great, the second half as good, and this... Was just so boring. Hardly any adventures, just dry space station politicking. Lame.

    Reader was wonderful.

    "Excellent performance augments excellent conclusion of series"

    This intelligent, well-conceived performance brings to the forefront nuances within the relationships between the large cast of characters that are drawn together onto the stage for this final book in the trilogy. Having read much of this in print parallel to listening to this performance, I felt the performer's understanding of the irony and withheld information dancing around so many of these exchanges deepened my interest in (and understanding of) the evolution in these characters that brings this series from the lively action of the first book through to the dramatic changes that become possible by the end. There are those who have mentioned preferring the first book because of the action and genre play, but in my opinion the much more challenging and impressive work Leckie has accomplished is best recognized in this third book.

    I'm very impressed with the performance! Different British accents for all of the characters, really helps keep them straight.

    "Very satisfying conclusion."

    I hope Ms Leckie will write a follow up to the first trilogy and continue Breq's story. She raises such compelling questions about language, gender, humanity and significance. This last book is my favorite of the three, and now I am sad that I cannot follow Breq and company into their new adventure.

    "The World of Tea"

    Lacklustre story and mediocre conclusion reminiscent of lukewarm tea served from a chipped, second-hand tea set.

    If only Leckie spent as much time thinking about plot as she did about drinking tea.

    "Interesting way to end the series"

    I did not expect the ending which made the book series end well. The performance is great which is made better by a plot that caries well, fair character development, and a surprising ending. Great read.
