Reviews

IO9 on ANCILLARY SWORD
A gripping read, with top-notch world building and a set of rich subtexts about human rights, colonialism -- and (yes) hive mind sex.
SLATE on ANCILLARY MERCY
No science-fiction series as descriptive of our current political and cultural moment or as insistent that we open our eyes to it.
THE NEW YORK TIMES on ANCILLARY SWORD
Powerful.
John Scalzi
There are few who write science fiction like Ann Leckie can. There are few who ever could.
NPR BOOKS on ANCILLARY SWORD
The sort of space opera audiences have been waiting for.
