In the empire of the Radch, massive spaceships are powerful sentient AIs that operate armies of ancillaries, known as “corpse soldiers”—formerly human, now with implants that join many ancillaries together as part of their ship’s one mind, serving the Radch in its ever-expanding conquest of planetary system after system. Breq may look human, but she is a rare lone ancillary body from a long-destroyed ship. Thousands of years later, she remains disconnected from the majority of what she once was as the troop carrier Justice of Toren. Ancillary Justice follows two stories of Breq—first the story of how she as Justice of Toren was betrayed and reduced to her single body, then her quest for revenge, interrupted by an encounter with an officer who served on Justice of Toren in the distant past.
