_Ancillary Sword (Imperial Radch)_ by Ann Leckie
Book number two of a three book space opera series. Or, it could be
military SF. I read the well bound and printed trade paperback. I am
now reading the third book in the series.
In the far distant future, humanity has dispersed to the stars. Vast
new cultures has sprung up, some weak, some strong. And the integration
of artificial intelligence to humans has become complete, so much that
the AI totally permanently overrides the human consciousness. AIs are
now running the Radch organizations, even up to the emperor which is
spread over hundreds of bodies, ancillaries.
This series continues to distract me by using the female pronouns and
adjectives throughout the Radch society for both males and females. It
is as if the gender of the person does not matter whatsoever. But other
societies in the series do not use the same, weird.
My rating: 3.7 out of 5 stars
Amazon rating: 4.1 out of 5 stars (499 reviews)
