Staff Reviews

Ann Leckie writes sci-fi with the same sense of justice as Octavia Butler and Ursula Le Guin, with the addition of action sequences and space battles that I can only pray I will one day get to see on the big screen. Already read and loved the first two, but concerned that Leckie won't stick the landing? Don't worry, she does.

— From Anje


Ancillary Mercy is the stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy and winner of the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

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.
