Editorial Reviews

Review

"Powerful."
The New York Times

"The sort of space opera audiences have been waiting for."
NPR Books

"Fans of space operas will feast on its richly textured, gorgeously rendered world-building."
Entertainment Weekly

"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

"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)

"An ambitious space opera that proves that Justice was no fluke.... a book every serious reader of science fiction should pick up."―RT Book Reviews

"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

"A gripping read, with top-notch world building and a set of rich subtexts about human rights, colonialism -- and (yes) hive mind sex."
io9

"Leckie investigates what it means to be human, to be an individual and to live in a civilized society."
Scientific American
