A Memory Called Empire

by Arkady Martine
Release date: April 2, 2019
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictionspace opera

A Memory Called Empire is a fast-paced, character-led tale of empire, intrigue and rebellion with a murder at its heart. Mahit Dzmare, ambassador for her people, is thrilled to visit the City – capital of many worlds. But she’s unprepared for the chaos that awaits. Her predecessor has been murdered, but no one will admit it. So she must navigate the capital’s deadly halls of power to hunt down the truth, discover what he gave up to save his people and also prevent the empire from forcibly annexing her home – while staying alive herself.

A Memory Called Empire is a gripping political intrigue that recalls the best of John Le Carré and the most vivid shades of Iain M. Banks’ Culture civilizations. As seen in Ann Leckie’s Ancillary Justice or John Scalzi’s The Collapsing Empire, this will explore the dramatic consequences of empire – for nations and individuals.

Wow, to compare this to a Culture novel is an affront. I tried so hard to like this book but just couldn’t connect. Please avoid unless you want to read something to fall asleep to...
