Review: Ancillary Sword


Ancillary Sword
Ancillary Sword by Ann Leckie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Good follow up. Again, it took me a few pages to reset my perspective. Looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

The vagueness of the alien species, what's behind the Ghost Gate, this is a novel that really does put the reader into an other frame of mind. The impossible to pronounce names, the lack of culturally common descriptors, all combine to put the reader in a ...space.. that's defined not by its edges, but by the vague expanse it can occupy.
