The sequel to Ancillary Justice, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, British Science Fiction, Locus, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards

Breq is a soldier who used to be a warship. Once a weapon of conquest controlling thousands of minds, now she has only a single body and serves the emperor.

With a new ship and a troublesome crew, Breq is ordered to go to the only place in the galaxy she would agree to go: Athoek Station, where she’s to protect the family of a lieutenant she once knew—a lieutenant she murdered in cold blood.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of space operas will feast on its richly textured, gorgeously rendered world-building.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Leckie investigates what it means to be human, to be an individual, and to live in a civilized society.”

    Scientific American

  • “Superb…Sword proves that [Leckie]‘s not a one-hit wonder. I look forward to the rest of Breg’s tale.”

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch

  • “This is the sort of space opera audiences have been waiting for.”


  • “This sequel to Ancillary Justice, a debut novel that swept science fiction’s major awards, is an ambitious space opera that proves that Justice was no fluke and that Leckie as an author is one of the significant new names in science fiction…Building on the themes of the series while still functioning as a solid stand-alone novel in its own right, Ancillary Sword is a book every serious reader of science fiction should pick up.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “This follow-up builds on the world and characters that the author introduced in the first book and takes the story in new directions. There is much more to explore in Leckie’s universe, one of the most original in sf today.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Breq’s struggle for meaningful justice in a society designed to favor the strong is as engaging as ever. Readers new to the author will be enthralled, and those familiar with the first book will find that the faith it inspired has not been misplaced.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Leckie proves she’s no mere flash in the pan with this follow-up to her multiple-award-winning debut space opera, Ancillary Justice."

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “This sequel to the award-winning Ancillary Justice is ably narrated by Adjoa Andoh…Andoh gives unique voices to the various characters, affecting different accents quite well. Her delivery is energetic, even spritely, and her clear enunciation makes sense of even the many alien words in the text. When called upon to sing, Andoh does a very nice job of it. To fully appreciate the story, listeners should familiarize themselves with Book 1, also performed by Andoh.”
