Description

Following her record-breaking debut trilogy, Ann Leckie, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke, and Locus Awards, returns with an enthralling new novel of power, theft, privilege, and birthright.

A power-driven young woman has just one chance to secure the status she craves and regain priceless lost artifacts prized by her people. She must free their thief from a prison planet from which no one has ever returned.

Ingray and her charge will return to her home world 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, her family, and her world before they are lost to her for good.

A must read for any sci-fi lover.

Ann Leckie continues to write amazing stories. I have read all of her work and I can't get enough of it. I can't wait for her next book...when ever that may be :)

A lackluster followup

The first chapter drags. It doesn't get any better from there on out. The story is thin and the characters unmemorable. I would like to see something more from the author of the Imperial Radcht trilogy.

Worth it as an audiobook

Adjoa Andoh's narration is unbelievable, among the best I've ever heard. I loved Ancillary Justice (as a printed book, have not heard the audio version), but all the followups were only okay. The story here is also only okay, kind of repetitive and political, meaning it makes a whole lot out of very small actions and events. But it's a very interesting, original universe.

I did find the monologue from the Geck ambassador very moving. I'm not sure whether or not I would have in print. I'm still thinking about it days later.

Loved the protagonist!

Often, I find female-hero-protagonists right now to all be in the "Katniss" tough-as-nails kick-ass mold. Which is fine. But Ingray, with her foibles and her sweetness and her more subtle brilliance is a very refreshing heroine. I found her and the other characters around her to be extremely likable and fascinating. I was glad I read the Ancillary books first because it gave me good context for where to place the story, but I would be interested to hear from someone who read this without having that context... I see that Adjoa Andoh has received mixed reviews for her narration, but I found her wide variety of accents and voices to add depth that I think reflects the diversity of the setting-- all these different types of humans and non-humans from different worlds jumbled up together. It works really well.

Excellent voice acting and great standalone novel

This is an awesome story and a great first entry into Ann Leckie's books, if anyone is intimidated by their Ancillary Trilogy. Set in the same universe, this book does a great job bringing the galaxy together without feeling like it retreads old ground.

Adjoa Andoh makes an amazing voice presence and breathes life into a world that is familiar and not. I was a little worried I'd struggle with their transition into a different character but their voice work doesn't allow for much confusion, with what feels like a full cast of characters all together.

A departure from the ancillary novels

At first I was a bit disappointed because ancillary justice was not a main character in this novel. Neither were the sentient ships main characters. This is a novel which concerns other worlds in the universe where ancillary justice lives. The novel is actually quite interesting and I enjoyed it. The characters basically are one of privilege and one not so privileged. Also there is a great mystery involved in the story; I love good mysteries and I find that they tend to flesh out characters well. I recommend this book.

Great book, great performance

I really enjoyed the Ancillary series, but this book was actually better even though being much smaller in scope. Also, the performance of Adjoa Andoh was absolutely excellent. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys sci fi.

Subtly complex political machinations

Ann Leckie's Provenance is a complex, but richly engrossing tale that begins simply, but gradually evolves to a highly involved and complex fandango. Ingray is an adopted daughter of a politically powerful mother who is unlikely to share in much of the next generation's bounty. She crafts a plan to engineer the prison escape of a convict to run a scam on her brother, the heir apparent. Problems arise immediately and while Ingray is playing catch-up, larger forces are at play that result in involvement by a non-human intelligence as well as foreign invaders trying to gain control of her planet that just happens to sit in a favorable position for trade routes.

The sci-elements are varied, but muted with regards to the overall plot. There is clearly interstellar FTL drives, sophisticated drones, and non-human aliens with unusual, but intriguing social customs. Political complexity dominates. Of particular note is a societal penchant for "vestiges" which are tokens of historical interest such as old documents or autographs. Ingray is not so much a reluctant hero as much as someone not quite sure of what to do next, but with excellent instincts.

The narration is good, but suffers a bit with a noticeable accent. Pacing, tone, and mood are well attended. Of note, is Leckie's use of the ambiguous "e" instead of he or she randomly that adds some confusion, not so much as to the gender, but rather to simply which character is speaking.

A different part of the Radch universe

This is a return to the universe of the Radchaai, but not their empire or its fleet.

Ingray Aughskold, of Hwae, daughter of a prominent politician, is on a mission. Not for her mother, but for herself. She wants to be her mother's heir, and her mother has set her and her brother up to constantly compete to impress her. That brother, Danach, is often a jerk, but he is more of a risk-taker than Ingray, and has simply created more opportunities for their mother to be impressed.

Ingray has a plan to fix that, taking a major risk with, potentially, huge reward. She's paid for a convicted thief of vestiges, the vital mementos that are critical to social and political status on Hwae, to be retrieved from a prison planet from which no one every returns, to recover the vestiges he stole.

He arrives in stasis, and when removed from his stasis pod, he claims he's not the man she expected, Pahlad Budrakim. There are also problems with the somewhat dubious freighter captain she hired to bring them back to Hwae. The Ambassador of the alien Geck, en route to the conclave to discuss the rebel Radch AIs' request to be recognized as a significant species under the treaty, also makes problems, claiming that the freighter captain is a Geck citizen, and that he stole three ships, including the one he is now using in his freight business.

This is all only a tiny glimmer of the problems they'll have when they get to Hwae.

Ingray is a smart, capable young woman, who does not have the killer instinct of her mother or brother. This causes them and others to form certain assumptions about her, while others in her small circle of family and friends perhaps have a different view of her. This isn't the intense drama and galaxy-shaking drama of the Ancillary books. It's a smaller, more intimate story, closer to a comedy of manners. This doesn't mean the stakes aren't very real, for everyone involved, and Ingray does a lot of growing and maturing over the course of the story.

This reads like a standalone, but I'd be happy to see more of Ingray and her friends, should they turn up in future books. Recommended.

I bought this audiobook.

A solid Sci Fi novel

The story was very compelling, even if there were hardly any action scenes. The writer seemed to use politics to drive the storyline. The main character is a little unbelievable, how kind she is. Certainly its a refreshing change from the anti-hero but a little more salt and acidity would have balanced her sweet nature. Some of the accents were distracting.

drama about nonsense

the book spends a lot of time inside a culture obsessed with sentimental trinkets and momentos. it even admits that neighboring cultures find these people ridiculous. Leckie's world, same as the Ancillary trilogy, is good, but we could have ignored this corner of it.
