Interrupting Soliloquy

I enjoy most things, and don't believe that enjoying things means that I shouldn't rip it apart critically. Also don't think reading is the panacea of all ills, so I read a lot of comics and play a lot of video games.

Provenance - Ann Leckie

Back into to the Radch universe but at a different angle, Leckie brings us a much more politically bent adventure. Ingary, in a desperate attempt to be the heir of her mother's political title, puts all her cards on one risky move to get a criminal out of prison and to reveal the location of lost, precious "vestiges" that her home planet of Hwae depends on as a society. As things go awry, Ingary is forced to consider what is important to her and to her society, and whether truth can dismantle belief. It's all fresh, Leckie filling in the edges we were missing while we romped with in the trilogy, and asks us all new questions.
