Ancillary Mercy

Book 3, Imperial Radch

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Ancillary Mercy is the stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy and winner of the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 07, 2015 – The breathtaking conclusion to Leckie's much-lauded Imperiald Radch trilogy (Ancillary Justice; Ancillary Sword) lives up to the promise and expectations of the earlier books. Breq, the last human body housing the consciousness of the destroyed troop carrier Justice of Toren, must prepare the Athoek space station to survive the civil war spreading through Radch space. The station is overcrowded and badly damaged, and the political situation deteriorates as it becomes clear that the station has already been corrupted by competing factions of Anaander Mianaai, the many-bodied supreme ruler of the Radchaai. Breq has no way to determine the loyalties of the other military ships in the system. Things become even more complicated when station security finds somebody who doesn't belong there and should have died 600 years before. New readers could begin the series here, but they will miss out on the deeply satisfying culmination of early plot points and running jokes. This glorious series summit is suffused with the wit and the skillful eye for character that fans have come to expect from Leckie. Breq and her lieutenants are destined to be beloved giants in the space opera canon.

Customer Reviews

Onion-layers of deep thought

Revelatory exposition explodes page after page revealing ever more profound ethical and moral conundrums facing all of humanity in n the not-to-distant future.

Necessitates an immediate reread of the trilogy primed with newfound understanding.

A wonderful, even merciful, ending

Loved the book, love the series. Leckie has written an emotionally satisfying end to her award winning trilogy about Breq, the single ancillary soldier who is all that survived the destruction of the AI ship named Justice of Toren.

Thrilling conclusion to a fantastic series

Amazing third book in the wonderful Ancillary series. More action than the second book, builds to a very satisfactory ending.
