    Description

    Winner of the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novel

    Shortlisted for the 2020 Arthur C. Clarke Award

    Shortlisted for the 2019 Goodreads Choice Awards

    In a war of lies she seeks the truth.... 

    Ambassador Mahit Dzmare travels to the Teixcalaanli Empire’s interstellar capital, eager to take up her new post. Yet when she arrives, she discovers her predecessor was murdered. But no one will admit his death wasn’t accidental – and she might be next.

    Now Mahit must navigate the capital’s enticing yet deadly halls of power, to discover dangerous truths. And while she hunts for the killer, Mahit must somehow prevent the rapacious Empire from annexing her home: a small, fiercely independent mining station. As she sinks deeper into an alien culture that is all too seductive, Mahit engages in intrigues of her own. For she’s hiding an extraordinary technological secret, one which might destroy her station and its way of life. Or it might save them from annihilation.

    A Memory Called Empire is followed by A Desolation Called Peace in the Teixcalaan duology.

    Commentaires

    "A riveting story of character interplay and politics, this audiobook features the cool, calm narration of Amy Landon. Incredibly dialogue-driven, this story requires Landon to distinguish important nuances between characters with her word emphasis and pronunciation. She does so in a way that allows listeners to become engaged with the story and easily follow the political maneuverings. Her smooth delivery combined with Martine's story makes this sci-fi audiobook perfect to absorb one's attention." (AudioFile)

    "A Memory Called Empire perfectly balances action and intrigue with matters of empire and identity. All-round brilliant space opera, I absolutely loved it." (Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice)

    "Contender for debut of the year." (SFX Magazine)

    I love Sci-Fi But....

    This is very well written, but endless poetry, prose and explanations as to their purposes quickly became old.

    The names also became a bit jarring, One Lightning and Six Seagrass for example...

    It was well executed but I honestly struggled to care about the characters.

    Simply glorious space opera

    Great narration, a thought out narrative suuported by interesting characters and a penchant for city design. I came for the space empire, I left wanting to know more about The City.

    Political thriller with a dash of scifi

    Political thriller with a dash of scifi. If you like that kind of stuff you're right here. If you look for scifi with world building, technology or social inventions this here is not the right one
