What the critics say

"More intriguing cultures to explore, more characters to care about, more Leckie to love." (Kirkus)

"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)

"A perfect follow-up to the trilogy." (The New York Times)

Not really a Sci-fi...

First of all, the audio in the background is horribly disruptive and does not match the narrative very well. Listen without it.

The story is very good and thought through, main characters are charismatic and deep, but I'd argue its not really science fiction. I was expecting proper nerdy Sci fi, but this narrative could as easily have been set in ancient Rome or anywhere in time.

I really liked the geck though, as a biologist I appreciate speciation and the geck had some fascinating stuff going on.

Performance per se was OK to good, but it was hard to work out sexes in the voice. This might be improved by lowering the male voices just a tiny bit more.

Overall, good story, good drama, good performance, but not really science fiction.
