Winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel 2014
The spectacular debut novel nominated for every major science fiction award in 2014, Ancillary Justice is the story of a warship trapped in a human body and her search for revenge. Winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Nebula Award, the British Science Fiction Association Award, a James Tiptree Jr. honour, and a Kitschie. Currently shortlisted for the Hugo Awards.
They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now. The Radch are conquerors to be feared - resist and they'll turn you into a 'corpse soldier' - one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship's AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people. The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed - but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation.
Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale. But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.

Author: Ann Leckie Rating: 3.5 stars Overall, not bad. The back and forth about gender was definitely confusing and I was never able to just let it go and enjoy the story like I wanted. I enjoyed the mystery and piecing it all together but I have to admit, I also wasn't a fan of the back and ...
I've been a science fiction addict since I learned to read and I've rarely read science fiction as breathtakingly good as "Ancillary Justice" by Ann Leckie. Clearly, I'm not alone in this view, "Ancilliary Justice" won just about every prize there is: Hugo Award for Best Novel (2014), Nebula Awar...
I do not have the energy to properly write a review, but I am so grateful for this book and how it explores gender. From the perspective of someone who is very into linguistics, and from the perspective of someone who is transgender and gay, this book is so amazing in how it touches on all of these ...
