Following her record-breaking debut trilogy, Ann Leckie, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke and Locus Awards, returns with an enthralling new novel of power, theft, privilege and birthright.

A power-driven young woman has just one chance to secure the status she craves and regain priceless lost artifacts prized by her people. She must free their thief from a prison planet from which no one has ever returned.

Ingray and her charge will return to her home world to find their planet in political turmoil, at the heart of an escalating interstellar conflict. Together, they must make a new plan to salvage Ingray's future, her family, and her world, before they are lost to her for good.

Review of 'Provenance' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Loved this and, as always, wish I was better at reviews. I have Ancillary Justice on my to-read list but came across Provenance on the new book shelf at my library in the same library system the author calls out in her acknowledgements! We do have a wonderful library system in St. Louis.

I love a good manners book, and Provenance is a manners book with more than one twist. I enjoyed the cultures butting against each other, and a hero struggling to determine what's right for her, her family, her friends, her culture, and others--and what choices to make when these conflict. Looking forward to reading the Imperial Radch series.
