Ancillary Justice – Book Review

 

Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie

This book one of a three part series. Read this book first, then the next two, for Ancillary Justice sets up the other two. The world created by Ann Leckie is not one that will be familiar to most readers, even those who read primarily science fiction. Part of it is Leckie’s writing style that to this reader seemed a lot like Ayn Rand. It is terse prose that admits little feeling even though there is a lot of emotion under the surface.
