• Ingray Aughskold a tout prévu :
    1) libérer Pahlad Budrakim de la planète prison où il a été envoyé passer le reste de ses jours ;
    2) le forcer à révéler où il a caché les vestiges garseddaïs dont le vol lui a valu sa condamnation ;
    3) confier les précieux vestiges à sa mère, Nétano Aughskold, pour assurer à cette dernière un avantage politique décisif ;
    4) prouver à sa famille qu'elle est digne d'accéder, le jour venu, à la tête du clan.
    Mais ce faisant, Ingray va sans le savoir tirer le fil d'une conspiration interplanétaire qui dépasse de loin ses pauvres ambitions...

  • Rien ne peut arrêter l'expansion de l'empire radchaaï. Chaque annexion fournit des armées supplémentaires, les ancillaires, des captifs à la conscience détruite changés en troupes de choc, des marionnettes animées par l'intelligence artificielle des vaisseaux de guerre de l'empire. L'un de ces vaisseaux, le Justice de Toren, a été détruit, victime d'un complot au plus haut niveau du pouvoir. Mais son IA est parvenue à s'échapper et à s'incarner dans le seul ancillaire rescapé du massacre. Dix-neuf ans plus tard, sa vengeance est sur le point de s'accomplir...

  • À peine revenue, la paix fragile est menacée sur la station Athoek, mise en péril par la découverte d'un individu qui ne devrait même pas exister - un ancillaire d'un vaisseau censé avoir disparu de l'espace du Radch depuis des millénaires -, mais aussi par l'arrivée d'un nouveau traducteur des étranges Presgers, et surtout par celle, imminente et lourdement armée, d'Anaander Mianaai, l'autorité suprême de l'empire en guerre contre elle-même, qui pourrait bien entraîner le Radch tout entier dans une guerre civile comme il n'en a jamais connu.

  • Breq, la soldat qui fut jadis un vaisseau spatial, set à présent celle qu'elle avait juré de détruire, la Maître de l'empire radchaaï. Cette dernière a placé un navire et un équipage sous ses ordres, et lui a confié la seule mission qu'elle pouvait accepter: protéger, sur la station Athoek, la famille de la lieutenant Awn, celle-là même que Breq a froidement assassinée vingt ans plus tôt. La tâche va rapidement se révéler plus compliquée que prévu: intrigues politiques, tensions sociales, violences de toutes sortes... La situation sur Athoek est explosive. Et la présence d'une traître dans les rangs radchaaïs fausse encore un peu plus la donne.

  • The record-breaking debut novel that won every major science fiction award in 2014, Ancillary Justice is the story of a warship trapped in a human body and her search for revenge. Ann Leckie is the first author to win the Arthur C. Clarke, the Nebula and the Hugo Award for Best Novel in the same year.They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now.The Radch are conquerors to be feared - resist and they'll turn you into a 'corpse soldier' - one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship's AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people. The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed - but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation. Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale. But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.'ENGAGING AND PROVOCATIVE' SFX Magazine'UNEXPECTED, COMPELLING AND VERY COOL' John Scalzi'HIGHLY RECOMMENDED' Independent on Sunday'MIND-BLOWING' io9.com'THRILLING, MOVING AND AWE-INSPIRING' Guardian'UTTER PERFECTION, 10/10' The Book Smugglers'ASTOUNDINGLY ASSURED AND GRACEFUL' Strange Horizons 'ESTABLISHES LECKIE AS AN HEIR TO BANKS' Elizabeth BearThe Imperial Radch trilogy begins with Ancillary Justice, continues in Ancillary Sword and concludes with Ancillary Mercy.

  • Ancillary Mercy is the stunning conclusion to the trilogy that began with Ancillary Justice, the only novel ever to win the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards. For a moment, things seemed to be under control for Breq, the soldier who used to be a warship. Then a search of Athoek Station's slums turns up someone who shouldn't exist and a messenger from the mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq's old enemy, the divided, heavily armed, and possibly insane Anaander Mianaai - ruler of an empire at war with itself.
    Breq could flee with her ship and crew, but that would leave the people of Athoek in terrible danger. Breq has a desperate plan. The odds aren't good, but that's never stopped her before.The Imperial Radch trilogy begins with Ancillary Justice, continues in Ancillary Sword and concludes with Ancillary Mercy.

Mais alors qu'un usurpateur s'est emparé du trône, que des envahisseurs soutenus par un dieu hostile se massent aux frontières, le Freux reste désespérément muet. C'est en ces temps troublés qu'Éolo, l'aide de camp de l'héritier légitime du trône, découvre un sombre secret dans les fondations même de la tour du Freux...
