A spectacular literary Sci-Fi debut of war without end,a soldier without an army, and revenge without mercy

by Ann Leckie
Orbit, October 2013

« Debut novel, narrated by a military space ship, triumphs over work of established authors in top science fiction prize » – The Guardian

« A double-threaded narrative proves seductive, drawing the reader into the naive but determined protagonist’s efforts to transform an unjust universe. An expansionist galaxy-spinning empire [and] a protagonist on a single-minded quest for justice transcend space-opera conventions in innovative ways. This impressive debut succeeds in making Breq a protagonist readers will invest in, and establishes Leckie as a talent to watch. » —Publishers Weekly

« Leckie does a very good job of setting up this complex equation… This is an altogether promising debut. » —Kirkus

Ancillary-JusticeOn a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest.  Breq is both more than she seems and less than she was. Years ago, she was the Justice of Toren–a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of corpse soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy.
An act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with only one fragile human body. And only one purpose–to revenge herself on Anaander Mianaai, the many-bodied, near-immortal Lord of the Radch.

Ann Leckie has worked as a waitress, a receptionist, a rodman on a land-surveying crew, a lunch lady, and a recording engineer. The author of many published short stories, and secretary of the Science Fiction Writers of America.

Mise à jour du 1 septembre 2014 : Ann Leckie lauréate du prix HUGO ! Après le BSFA Award et le prix Arthur C. Clarke, Ann Leckie devient ainsi le premier auteur à remporter les trois prix les plus importants pour la science fiction dans la même année. ANCILLARY JUSTICE est déjà un roman culte!
