A space salvager and her partner make the discovery of a lifetime that just might change the universe in this wild, big-ideas space opera from multi-award-winning author Elizabeth Bear.
Haimey Dz thinks she knows what she wants.
She thinks she knows who she is.
She is wrong.
A routine salvage mission uncovers evidence of a terrible crime and relics of a powerful ancient technology, just as Haimey and her small crew run afoul of pirates at the outer limits of the Milky Way and find themselves both on the run and in possession of ancient, universe-changing technology.
When the authorities prove corrupt, it becomes clear that Haimey is the only one who can protect her galaxy-spanning civilisation from its potential power - and from the revolutionaries who want to use it to seed terror and war. But doing so will take her from the event horizon of the super-massive black hole at the galaxy's core to the infinite, empty spaces at its edge. Along the way, she'll have to uncover the secrets of ancient intelligences lost to time as well as her own lost secrets, which she will wish had remained hidden from her forever....
Energetic and electrifying, Ancestral Night is a dazzling new space opera, sure to delight fans of Alastair Reynolds, Iain M. Banks and Peter F. Hamilton.
Praise for Elizabeth Bear: "Gripping, perfectly balanced, and highly recommended." (Kirkus)
"Like the best of speculative fiction, Bear has created a fascinating and complete universe that blends high-tech gadgetry with Old World adventure and political collusion." (Publishers Weekly)

Tedious and extremely superficial
I tried this book because I read many reviews comparing it to Iain Banks culture novels, which is driving me insane. The "utopian" society in this book has fascist aspects which the author seems to think are made acceptable by contrasting it to a cartoonishly one dimensional and evil antagonist(s).
And even aside from that, the book has everything to make you want to dislike it: horrible pacing, tedious ever-repeating inner monologues that never lead to any development, even after the major plot twists, fake "representation" by making the protagonists basically holding up a sign of their identiy instead of making it feel like they are actually living it, plot advancement almost exclusively happens the way it happens in bad tv writing: characters discover new abilities and super powers just in time to get the author out of a bind, ...
hilarious and wonderful
space kitties and a good guy justice vessel named SJV I'LL EXPLAIN IT TO YOU SLOWLY. Plus endless literature jokes and puns. what more could one want?

..it should have been shorter...
A good reason to buy this book is the reader, who is excellent. The book itself is 25% introspective reflection, 15% plot and 60% world building. The story would be interesting but it is drowned in descriptions and arguments about fictional politics. I guess it is the book for you if you have more patience than I do
