Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie

Ancillary Mercy (Imperial Radch Book 3) by Ann Leckie --- 330 pages

The final book in Leckie's award-winning space opera that gives a completely original twist to that genre of science fiction, Ancillary Mercy is the brilliant and deeply satisfying conclusion  to the story begun in Ancillary Sword and continued in Ancillary Justice.

This is military science fiction minus the cliches, cinematic space battles and bloody duels. It's about standing up for what's right, but it's also about how to choose what's right, and --- even more challenging --- how to leverage what's right from the limited number of choices available. None of the characters are perfect; all of them make mistakes; but they keep trying to deal with the hand they were dealt and make something better. Ann Leckie is a formidable talent and a refreshing new voice in speculative fiction.
