Not worth reading unless you insist on completing the trilogy.
This was an awesome series and this last book did not disappoint. It wraps up nicely while at the same time leaving room for more in this more and I really hope that's something that happens.
This is the weakest book in the trilogy, although the plot complexity, the rich detail of the imagined universe, and the fascinating characters still provide a satisfying read. The minute and unnecessary detail of the interactions and activities on the ship in the middle of the book made me wonder if the author was trying to pad out the page count. Some issues are left unresolved. I look forward to seeing where the author goes next.
Housed in a composite human body not her own, Fleet Captain Breq is the last remaining "ancillary" fragment of a fallen starship's AI, as well as the commander of her own vessel. With civil war raging throughout the rapidly fracturing Radchaai Empire, Breq and her crew devise a plan to defend Atheok Station from ancient nemesis Anaander Mianaai, Lord of the Radch. Action-packed heroics unfold side-by-side with reflections on identity and personhood in this dramatic conclusion of the Imperial Radch trilogy, which begins with Ancillary Justice and Ancillary Sword.

not as good as the first two in the series
Very enjoyable! So many things happen relating to so many different characters that it feels like trying to summarize the plot at all will only result in spoiling things best left unspoiled. Suffice it to say that this book gives a variety of perspectives on the ideas of personhood, agency, and duty. The plot starts a little slow, but picks up speed fast. It also doesn't take the sort of left turn that it did in Ancillary Sword, but doesn't follow the narrative structure of Ancillary Justice, either. Basically, if you liked the people in the first two books, you'll find things to like in this one.
