On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest.
Once, she was the Justice of Toren - a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy.
Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.

Couldn't put down. Reread entire book the day after.
Liked the mystery of figuring out the past and future of character.
Reread a third time after listening to interviews with author! Reminds me of Ursula K. Le Guin. Both started main career I. Middle of life.
Iain M. Banks' heir apparent
A delectable space opera hearkening Banks' Culture series, with mythological echoes of Simmons' Hyperion and the vastness of Reynolds' Revelation Space.
A melange of all my favorite authors (including Peter F. Hamilton,not mentioned above)
Fascinating. Absolutely fascinating. Superb characters and plot; I'm delighted to read that this is the beginning of a trilogy.
