Details: Product Description An ambitious young woman has just one chance to secure her future and reclaim her family's priceless lost artifacts in this stand-alone novel set in the world of Ann Leckie's groundbreaking, NYT bestselling Imperial Radch trilogy, which won the Hugo and Nebula awards. Though she knows her brother holds her mother's favor, Ingrid is determined to at least be considered as heir to the family name. She hatches an audacious plan -- free a thief from a prison planet from which no one has ever returned, and use them to help steal back a priceless artifact. But Ingray and her charge return to her home to find their planet in political turmoil, at the heart of an escalating interstellar conflict. Together, they must make a new plan to salvage Ingray's future and her world, before they are lost to her for good. Review "There are few who write science fiction like Ann Leckie can. There are few who ever could."― John Scalzi "More intriguing cultures to explore, more characters to care about, more Leckie to love."― Kirkus "Character-centered space opera from one of SF's brightest stars."― Library Journal "A perfect follow-up to the trilogy."― The New York Times "The trademarks of Leckie's talent are on display, with even more worlds for readers to discover and some teasing overlap with her previous series. But what makes this book is watching Ingray overcome her poor self-esteem and discover who she actually wants to be, demonstrating again the genre's capacity to tell compelling, human stories."― RT Book Reviews "The intricacies and oddities are a delight.... A thrill for fans of heists and capers."― Washington Post "A careful look at how no one's immune from politics, even if they think themselves outside the fray . . . A story about the necessity of exploring the edges of the known."― NPR "An entertaining, thoughtful, and clever entry that both Leckie's new and returning readers can delve into and enjoy."― The Los Angeles Review of Books "[Leckie] raises provocative questions about identity, family and self-esteem. By the end, both neophytes and longtime Leckie fans are likely to be pleased."― The San Francisco Chronicle "The trappings of widescreen sci-fi, and the attention to character, to the small moments, to the inner lives of those living through outsized events . . . Just read it."― B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog About the Author Ann Leckie is the author of the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke, and British Science Fiction Award-winning novel Ancillary Justice. She has worked as a waitress, a receptionist, a rodman on a land-surveying crew, and a recording engineer. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
