I recommend Ann Leckie. She has an imagination that just doesn't stop. The world in the far future which she depicts is bizarre but compelling. The aliens in this world are fascinating and frustratingly difficult to predict, as aliens should be. Leckie has a deft touch which keeps the novel moving by switching from one location and character to another, like watching a talented juggler.
The inheritance laws in this story are very complicated and play an important part in how and why the interlocking stories develop as they do. The characters are curious and interesting. If you like science fiction, I recommend you give this a whirl. You might also want to check out her trilogy that begins with Alliance Justice as well. It is also set in the world of Provenance.
