Ancillary mercy - Ann Leckie

For a moment, things seemed to be under control for Breq, the soldier who used to be a warship. Then a search of Athoek Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist, and a messenger from the mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai - ruler of an empire at war with itself.

Breq refuses to flee with her ship and crew, because that would leave the people of Athoek in terrible danger. The odds aren't good, but that's never stopped her before.

My thoughts:
One really should not read sci-fi a year apart..well at least not me. I do have problems with sci.fi in a way, not bad problems, just that I forget things, and the tech stuff and...yes I was all wait wait? How was she a AI again? I had forgotten the most important things, not that the main POV is AI, but how...

So if you do read these, do not wait a year between books! ;)

Forgetting all that, I really do like Ann Leckie. I should check if she has anything new out. I like military sci-fi for some reason, I gravitate to it, no idea why, I mean seriously, I am all tech? And still I got for the AI and ships. I also like how she uses the pronoun she...for all of them. The Raadch do not care about gender and use the word she for everyone.

I am rambling, I can not concentrate today. Anyway the leader of this corner of the universe is fighting with herself ..she is many...and Breq, who was a ship and is now just one person takes a side. Breq is a good, well person, being AI and all.  But the one that steals the show in this one is a translate from an alien race, oh she was a hoot. I like that these are not heavy sci-fi, they do manage to be light, considering.

Conclusion:
Oh whatever, i can NOT write a review today. I suck. 
 Just read the series ;)

  1. It was still a great review :) and I feel the same way about sci-fi, if I wait too long to read the next installment I forget too many things.

  2. Ha ha. Your review made me laugh. I am sitting here putting off two reviews today because I am not feeling it, glad I am not the only one who struggles.

  4. Sometimes an author helps me remember by dropping little hints that help otherwise I'd often be lost as the grey matter turns over!

    1. Luckily for me she did that :) I like when they do it, but not when they do it too much

  5. I'll have the same problem, too. Sci-Fi is such a complicated genre for me as it is. Lol.

  6. I often find I need to re-read the last chapter of the previous book or at least my review.

  8. This was an okay series, but I honestly did not enjoy it as much as a lot of others. I am hoping her new book will work better for me!

    1. I think I would have liked it more if I had read them closer to each other. But I still liked it a lot, it was different, and the sort of sci.fi I like

  9. You have really enjoyed these. It sounds like a great scifi series and one that might be great for me. :)

  10. Yeah sci fi fiction can be difficult at times. But I love the challenge of them and they are so different from any other genre.

  11. I have a super hard time reading sci--fi, but I adore watching it on television or in a movie. I'm like you and can't remember what in the heck is going on in most instances. (lol) Hugs...RO
