What if you once had thousands of bodies and near god-like technology at your disposal? And what if all of it were ripped away? The Lord of the Radch has given Breq command of the ship Mercy of Kalr and sent her to the only place she would have agreed to go -- to Athoek Station, where Lieutenant Awn's sister works in Horticulture. Athoek was annexed some six hundred years ago, and by now everyone is fully civilized -- or should be. But everything is not as tranquil as it appears. Old divisions are still troublesome, Athoek Station's AI is unhappy with the situation, and it looks like the alien Presger might have taken an interest in what's going on. With no guarantees that interest is benevolent.… (mere)

    Imperium : roman af Robert Harris (rakerman)
    rakerman: Although it might seem unusual to link a science fiction book to historical fiction, the Radch empire as presented in Ancillary Sword has many echoes of Ancient Rome, whether small things like bathhouses or major elements like clients and slavery. These themes are also ably dealt with in Robert Harris' Imperium, about Cicero establishing his position and fighting imperial injustice.… (mere)

AIs, spaceflight, and an empire that seems a cross between Roman and Chinese. All basic needs met, but human life valued very lightly much of the time. ( )

After enjoying the first book in the series, I dove into the 2nd. It didn't hurt that it was nominated for another Hugo award, on a number of short lists for great sci-fi. Unfortunately it wasn't nearly as interesting as the first in the series. Many of the concepts explored in the first one were put aside to tackle a case of discrimination on a subset of people on a space station. Still great sci-fi, but I didn't get the same level of enjoyment out of the story as the first one -- which might have set my expectations a little bit too high. ( )

Not so much space opera as soap opera for most of the book.
Honestly, boring and predictable. Very disappointing when compared to the first book. ( )

This second book is very different from the first one, Ancillary Justice.

The first book does world-building and drops you into a combination of direct action and flashback, for a very effective storyline.

This second book is much more about the Radch empire itself, which has a lot of elements of Ancient Rome (including bathhouses and slavery), and in fact if the themes in this book resonate I would recommend Imperium by Robert Harris, about Cicero dealing with similar issues of clients and empire.

I felt the pace of the second book didn't match that of the first; it felt like the entire second book was a pause to set the stage for the third and final book. ( )

A worthy successor to Ancillary Justice. ( )
