Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie

Ancillary Justice
Ancillary Justice is an ambitious character driven work of science fiction. The story follows the artificially intelligent ship named Justice of Toren and its soldiers during the annexation of a planet. That is all in the past, in the primary timeline of the book, the ship’s consciousness has been sealed into a human, ancillary body. This highlights the primary technological innovation of the book, ships control human bodies as if they were an appendage.

While the pacing of this book is a bit slow, it is a very imaginative piece of world building. The universe that Leckie has created obviously has a ton of depth to it and could be mined endlessly for stories. The action is minimal until the final pages, but the fascinating world and the mystery behind how a ship became a human kept me engaged throughout
