    For centuries, the kingdom of Iraden has been protected by the god known as the Raven. He watches over his territory from atop a tower in the powerful port of Vastai. His will is enacted through the Raven's Lease, a human ruler chosen by the god himself. His magic is sustained via the blood sacrifice that every Lease must offer. And under the Raven's watch, the city flourishes. But the power of the Raven is weakening. A usurper has claimed the throne. The kingdom borders are tested by invaders who long for the prosperity that Vastai boasts.

    Breq - the soldier who used to be a spaceship - is serving the emperor she swore to destroy. She's been given her own warship, her own crew, and ordered to the only place in the galaxy she would have agreed to go: to Athoek Station, to protect the family of the lieutenant she murdered in cold blood. Athoek was annexed by the Empire some 600 years ago, and by now everyone is fully 'civilised'. Or should be - but everything is not as tranquil as it appears.

    For a moment things seemed to be under control for Breq, the soldier who used to be a warship. Then a search of Athoek Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist, and a messenger from the mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai - ruler of an empire at war with itself.

    Justice of Toren, un'astronave dotata di intelligenza artificiale, ha trasportato per millenni le truppe del Radch, una superpotenza aggressiva ed espansionista basata sulla totale sottomissione e sorveglianza della popolazione. Justice of Toren non controllava solo i propri sistemi e computer, ma anche altre astronavi e milizie umane, soldati di cui sono rimasti soltanto i corpi, mentre i loro ricordi e ogni parte senziente sono stati eliminati.

    Anaander, il signore del Radch, ha nominato Breq Ammiraglio e le ha affidato il comando della nave spaziale Mercy of Kalr. La missione che le è stata assegnata prevede il trasferimento presso la stazione di Athoek, uno degli avamposti dell'impero, e la messa a punto di un sistema di difesa contro gli eventuali attacchi da parte dei nemici esterni che attentano all'integrità del Radch. Athoek è fondamentale dal punto di vista strategico. La stazione fu annessa sei secoli prima e i suoi abitanti sono perfettamente integrati nella vita dell'impero.
