Ann Leckie has done it again. Another great story

Provenance is set in the same universe as Ann Leckie's Radch novels. Like them it is thought provoking without being "heavy". The story is well paced & the narration by Adjoa Andoh is perfect.

A complex, nuanced vision.

The author's subtle humour is delivered by this accomplished narrator with a deadpan style and a twinkle in her voice.
Initially, I worried the various different pronouns were likely to get tiresome, but it never happened, the story took over and I spent more time listening to the dialogue for the humour. You do have to listen for it, it is never signalled.
While it will be described by some as politically correct and even a feminist novel, these labels are irrelevant to what is a sci-fi novel of political intrigue and a range of characters displaying a great deal of panache.
