Ancillary Sword - Ann Leckie

Nope, didn't finish last night. But I'm so close.

 

Oh, Seivarden. Compared to how she was throughout most of Ancillary Justice, she does extremely well in this book. But then Breq leaves, ends up in danger, and could have died had things gone a bit differently, and Seivarden starts to show the strain.

 

I'm torn on the Breq/Seivarden relationship. On the one hand, I love that Seivarden is so firmly and absolutely by Breq's side, metaphorically. On the other hand, stuff like this makes me worry that Seivarden's attachment to Breq isn't entirely healthy. Leckie does address this a bit later on, but I was still left with some doubts. Which is why there needs to be another book set a few years after Ancillary Mercy, featuring all the same main characters. (Okay, so I'm just greedy. Please?)
