's review

it was amazing

So I'm only five minutes removed from the end of this book and I'm already suffering from a relapse of BWS (Breq Withdrawal Syndrome), made worse by Ms. Leckie's admission that she has no intention of using Breq in any future novels. I find that a rather sadistic thing to say to one's loyal fans, though I suppose less sadistic than her keeping us in the dark about it and then depriving us anyway. At least this way we can all be pleasantly surprised if she changes her mind (fingers crossed).

There's really not much point in coming up with an actual review for Ancillary Mercy. It's the third book in a trilogy. Simply put, if you haven't read the first two books, do so, then read this one. You won't regret it. If you have read the first two, you've probably at least started this one by now, or plan to soon, and you already know what you're in for.

I would instead like to mention that I read Justice and Sword on my Kindle, but this time elected to listen to the Audiobook, and I cannot say enough about how awesome Adjoa Andoh is. Good lord of Mianaai it must be exhausting to be that good at something. I wish she had also narrated both of the previous books (she only did Sword) because I would happily go back and experience the whole trilogy over again with her performance. Really, if you haven't read Mercy yet (or even if you have), I very strongly recommend you get the audio. Awesome work.
