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.

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.

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.

V. Good!

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

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.

A complex, engrossing story with drama

This story was much faster moving than the second novel in the trilogy , with a number of very interesting plot twists and a great deal of further character development . those who are interested in the philosophical speculation of the series, about how artificial intelligences will relate to others , will be intrigued by not only the story but the way that it resolves .

Great story and performance by Ms. Andoh. Listen!

The author brings insight from numerous disciplines though I was most intrigued by what I learned about ancient Roman society included, perhaps, to highlight the immutability of human nature: nice is not always the same ad good. The core of the work is well written, very character-driven, very satisfying and an extraordinarily good read or listen.

Love the voice actor - story is meh

Read the first one, loved it. Second one less so. Third one just couldn't get into. Decided to go for the audio book and finished in a few days. Love the voice actor. Translator zeiat was the best one and really brought everything to life.

Story is somewhat boring. Way too much emphasis on tea. I swear that word must come up 10,000x in the three novels. I wonder how much ink was wasted on drinking tea. Same w 'such and such character GESTURED some feeling' - lazy writing in my eyes. But all in all good. And I enjoyed it

Great Series

Each book lacks climax, sort of begins to build one then cuts it off before things get too intense. The imagination and social ideas make up for the lack of climax IMO. I much enjoyed the series and am a bit sad I'm finished with the books.

The reader is perfect!
