It's been some months now since I read "Ancillary Mercy". I held back from reviewing it, not because it wasn't good but because what made it good was so pervasive, so delicate and so intricately linked to the two preceding books, whose meaning it subtly modifies, that I didn't know where to start. ...

Ancillary Mercy is the third in Leckie's Imperial Radch trilogy following the quest of Breq, who used to be the AI of the warship Justice of Toren and has now been reduced to a single body, to inconvenience Anaander Mianaai, the tyrannical ruler of the Radch, whose multiple bodies have turned agains...

I would have to say...for a book about a galactic dictator trying to murder you and your friends, while putting the whole universe in danger....this installment of this series was very light-hearted. Like, I found myself laughing out loud many times. The characters were all very alive and real. E...

This is the year of finishing serieses for me. Some of which (like this one!) are even books published this year. Very satisfying as a concluding volume. It didn't have that amazing emotional release that the second one provided, but instead followed through on the fallout of the story so far. Ju...

I did. No regrets. This was amazing. I absolutely loved this whole trilogy. The character development, the world building - with the exception of the gender issue which I never understood - the politics, everything. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, and redemptive. It was, as Familiar D...

This is the final book in the Imperial Radch trilogy, and I really debated between 4 and 4.5 stars for this one - it is as good or better than the first volume, Ancillary Justice, and makes much of Ancillary Sword make more sense. (It really does read as one story chopped up into three books.) If...

It´s kind of sad that this is the last book in the Imperial Radch trilogy. I could read for hours and hours about Breq and her fellow human and AI crewmates and I finished this book with that satisfying feeling that this is the perfect ending (for now) for these beloved characters. The story takes...

Certainly a more coherent review will be here soon, but now, honestly I think Mercy was the best Ancillary book of them all.

I enjoyed Adjoa Andoh's narration of Ancillary Sword enough to want to listen to her narration of Ancillary Mercy, and I loved Ancillary Mercy when I read the paperback version a short while ago. There isn't much I can write about the story that I either didn't already say in my review of the paperb...

Ancillary Mercy is the third book in Ann Leckie’s stunning Imperial Radch trilogy, and it’s a perfect end to Breq’s story in tone, resonance, and emotional payoff. These books have been some of my absolute favorites from the past few years, and I will be reading anything Leckie publishes from now on...
