Ancillary Mercy - Ann Leckie

I finally caught up with Grim, or at least with the last part Grim posted about. And yes, the Perfect Scene has made me cry yet again. Good tears, though.

 

I remember finishing Ancillary Sword for the first time. I had things I hoped Leckie would do, and I saw some of the potential in what she was building, but I admit that it never occurred to me that things would turn out quite like this. It didn't fit the usual mold. I'm glad that Leckie not only didn't fumble this, she made it even better than I might have wished. I think I've only ever sent authors fan mail twice in my life. Leckie makes me want to do it a third time.
