Provenance Ann Leckie
Dust jacket illustration by Lauren Saint-Onge.
On the planet Hwae, objects called vestiges hold an unparalleled place of honor. These antique relics are not simple mementos, but tangible representations of important places and people in history. To hold the right vestige brings nothing less than political power, and to forge a vestige is a crime akin to a moral taboo.
Ingray seeks nothing more than the approval of her foster mother, politician Netano. So much so, in fact, that in the hope of gaining Netano’s approval and perhaps being chosen as her successor she pays to get the infamous thief Pahlad Budrakim off a prison planet. Her hope is that Pahlad will reveal the location of crucial and stolen family vestiges. But political games are always dangerous, and soon Ingray finds herself at the center of a murder investigation with stakes that stretch far beyond the confines of her family and Hwae.
With standalone novel Provenance, New York Times bestselling author Ann Leckie returns to the Imperial Radch universe of her Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke and Locus Award-winning trilogy to tell another powerfully essential story.
