Unexpected, compelling and very cool - Ann Leckie nails it. I've never met a heroine like Breq before. I consider this a very good thing indeed.Total gamechanger. Get it, read it, wish to hell you'd written it. Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice may well be the most important book Orbit have published in ages.It's not every day a debut novel by an author you'd never heard of before derails your entire afternoon with its brilliance. - Tor.comUsing the format of a SF military adventure blended with hints of space opera, Leckie explores the expanded meaning of human nature and the uneasy balance between individuality and membership in a group identity.

This is an altogether promising debut. - KirkusOur #1 pick for the year's best science fiction or fantasy book . . . this Iain M. Banks-esque tale was the book that made us most excited about the future of science fiction in 2013. - io9.comIt engages, it excites, and it challenges the way the reader views our world.

(As it should be). - Pornokitsch
