Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Ancillary Sword (Ancillary Justice) - Ann Leckie

Just as brilliant, mind-bending, and paradigm busting as its predecessor Ancillary Justice (my review here ), this second book of the trilogy has a social justice theme running through it that felt heavy handed to me at times and a main character who came a little too close to being an AI version of an all perfect Mary Sue, but the sophisticated world building, can’t-put-it-down storyline, and diverse, well developed characters kept me enthralled. I loved the first book so much, and its story is so complex, that I reread it--no skimming--before starting this one, even though my original reading was this summer. Can’t wait for the final book.
