Really great conclusion to the aeries. If you loved the first book, you'll love this too. ( )

Loved it -- I've loved all the books in this series for different reasons, and this one did not disappoint. I am so intrigued by the portrayal of alien intelligences -- somehow Leckie is just really convincing in her consistent depictions, her unexpected dialogues and her very odd characters. Not Dlique is amazing, and I was surprised and delighted with how things wrapped up. Now all I need are some egg shells, some counters and a live fish.... ( )

A lot slower to start than the first two volumes. ( )

Well I can't say I saw that coming

I hoped for a happy resolution, but expected that Breq would die when she flew to station to surrender. I never expected that she'd declare the two systems a republic or that the Presger Translator Zeiat would intervene.
Even before that happened Zeiat was my favorite character of the series.

Okay, I get it! Not horrible, but turned into a boring soap opera. ( )

Spaceship friendships bloom;
Station joins in too, helping;
Thwart the evil Lord.
