On 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.

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 ...
