You know the old story: the musically inclined artificial intelligence of a great space war ship that conquers planets by controlling thousands of dead humans called ancillaries gets separated from her ship and her soldiers and now inhabits one human body and tries to track down the person responsible in order to take revenge. Yes, it’s a tale as old as time and it’s also one of the best science fiction novels that I’ve read in a long time. Leckie’s debut is smart, engaging, and it delves into topics (class warfare, colonialism, gender) of great importance with intelligence and creativity.
