Ancillary JusticeBook - 2013
On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest.
Once, she was the Justice of Toren - a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy.
Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.

From Library Staff
Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke award winning first book in a trilogy. You'll get absorbed in the lives of the characters. That's surprising, when they're not all human.
It's especially surprising when one of them used to be a spaceship.

This book has one of the most unique protagonists - an AI with many bodies and a central intelligence. Odd, character-driven, deep and broad world building (but not a focus on the gadgets or weird made up words), and a fast paced plot. All the things I love about sci-fi!
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
In the empire of the Radch, massive spaceships are powerful sentient AIs that operate armies of ancillaries, known as “corpse soldiers”—formerly human, now with implants that join many ancillaries together as part of their ship’s one mind, serving the Radch in its ever-expanding conquest of planetary system after system. Breq may look human, but she is a rare lone ancillary body from a long-destroyed ship. Thousands of years later, she remains disconnected from the majority of what she once was as the troop carrier Justice of Toren. Ancillary Justice follows two stories of Breq—first the story of how she as Justice of Toren was betrayed and reduced to her single body, then her quest for revenge, interrupted by an encounter with an officer who served on Justice of Toren in the distant past.
