The Confessions of Arsene Lupin

Ancillary Justice

Leckie, Ann
Breq, formerly a starship, is on a quest. Good story, will read the sequels. I am still confused about who is male and who is female. Or maybe it doesn't matter.

Ancillary Mercy

Leckie, Ann
Imperial Radch #3. Well, the third book. I found some very funny humour, some confusing stuff. Must be my old age. My favorite character was Translator Zeiat.

Ancillary Sword

Leckie, Ann
The second book in the series. I'm still confused by the lack of gender references, but the story is good. Story got a bit dusty at the end.

Provenance

Leckie, Ann
A complicated tale of political machinations that takes place in the Ancillary universe. It starts out with Ingray trying to retrieve a thief from a prison planet to help her in a plot to impress her mother, but things rapidly go awry.

Quote:

"Well," observed Ingray, with a small hiccup, " but I didn't get any sea worms."

"Not everyone can be as lucky as I am," Tic agreed. (pg. 429)

The Raven Tower

Leckie, Ann
I don't know if this is gonna be a series, if so, it is the first one volume. Anyway, the narrator is a big rock, recounting the adventures of Eolo, who is aide to Lord Marat. I like it a lot, I'd read the next no problemo.

Quote:

"I'll have to kill them both, then," she said, her voice slightly exasperated, as though she had just been presented with a minor, unexpected chore. -- pg. 338

Translation State

Leckie, Ann
I think I understand more of this book than the first two. I think that I shall have to read them over!
In a rough search I found that the word "coffee" is used fifty-nine times. The word "tea" is used a lot too, but I couldn't make an accurate count.

Quote:

"Is there tea?" asked Reet.
"There's always tea."

The Joy Of Names

Lederer, Richard
Interesting book about names. I've heard the author speak on the radio and television so many times that I read the book in the author's voice. And I think I've heard a lot of this material before.

Agent Of Change

Lee, Sharon and Steve Miller
A Liaden Universe novel. I found the romance lame. Spy Val Con and mercenary Miri Robertson eventually team up to fight their common enemies. Good story...except for that romance!

Fledgling

Lee, Sharon and Steve Miller
(Theo Waitley, #1; Liaden Universe, #12) Clumsy teen Theo goes on a trip with her mother, meets new people, and expands her horizons. I liked this book very very much!!

Ninefox Gambit

Lee, Yoon Ha
I really did not enjoy reading this book until the second half or so. And it really is a "...fun if high-body-count story involving a long game of cat-and-mouse between two very different personalities. "(Yoon Ha Lee in The Book Smugglers blog Posted on June 16, 2016)
