Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the multi-system Teixcalaanli Empire only to discover that her predecessor, the previous ambassador from their small but fiercely independent mining Station, has died. But no one will admit that his death wasn't an accident--or that Mahit might be next to die, during a time of political instability in the highest echelons of the imperial court. Now, Mahit must discover who is behind the murder, rescue herself, and save her Station from Teixcalaan's unceasing expansion--all while navigating an alien culture that is all too seductive, engaging in intrigues of her own, and hiding a deadly technological secret--one that might spell the end of her Station and her way of life--or rescue it from annihilation.… (mais)

This is a reread as I had read this book when it first came out. I had only vague recollections of the story so I reread it before the latest book in the series. I am happy that I did so as there were details that I did not catch in the first reading or I had forgotten. ( )

Cool heroine- fun intrigue ( )

3.5 stars The story is interesting but the writing is just fair. ( )

I had never heard of this writer before this book won the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novel. But there's a good reason for that because this is Arkady Martine's first novel. I gather she has written short fiction prior to the book coming out but still how amazing is it that a debut novel goes on to win one of the top prizes in the science fiction genre. And I have to say that it was good. I'm hoping that my library is going to get the next in the series A Desolation Called Peace or I might just have to buy another book!

The Teixcalaanli Empire rules most of human-occupied space but there are a few pockets of independent colonies. The Lsel Station, an artificial satellite in a system with no habitable planets but with lots of rare minerals, is one of these. Lsel sent an ambassador to the City that is where the Teicalaanli Emperor and the seat of government is found. For twenty years Ambassador Yskander Aghavn has represented Lsel's interests and managed to avoid having the Empire annex the station but suddenly there is a request for a new ambassador with no indication of what has happened to the old ambassador. A young woman well-schooled in Teixcalaanli politics and literature and history, Mahit Dzmare, is chosen as the replacement. Citizens of Lsel in important positions are often implanted with an imago of the previous occupant of the position. An imago is a small neurological implant that contains the memories and personality of another person. When it is implanted in the successor's brain the two personalities ideally merge so that everything the person from whom the imago was created learned can be used by the recipient to guide their reactions. Unfortunately Ambasador Aghavn only returned to Lsel Station once fifteen years ago so the imago Mahit receives is quite out of date. Then after she has only had three months to merge with the imago it becomes non-functional only hours after she arrives in the City. And Mahit could really do with guidance because it appears that the previous ambassador was murdered and there are succession issues and civil unrest brewing in the Empire. Mahit has a few Teixcalaanli to help her, chief among them being her liaison, Three Seagrass. Nineteen Adze, a Teixcalaanli ezuazuacat (member of the emperor's personal advisory council), also appears helpful and she does give Mahit sanctuary when Mahit and Three Seagrass are caught up in a bombing and Three Seagrass is injured. But things are not always as they seem; the Teixcalaanli are famous for composing poetry that has hidden meanings and often their verbal utterances are also full of obscure messages. The imago technology is supposed to be a secret but it seems that a number of Teixcalaanli including the Emperor know about it and want it in return for which they might hold off annexing Lsel. Mahit certainly has her work cut out for her.

The short bio at the back of the book says Martine grew up in New York City and spent some time in Turkey, Canada, and Sweden and now lives in Baltimore. Sounds like a fascinating back story and I hope I will find out more about her. ( )

Mahit is a young diplomat from a small space station who has been sent to a colonizing empire after the mysterious death of her predecessor. She has a brain implant that contains her predecessor's memories. When she arrives, it is clear that his death was suspicious, and that he was involved in some much bigger things than he should have been.

I enjoyed this a lot - the story is compelling, the characters are interesting, and the world-building is very good. Martine is a Byzantine historian, and you can see that perspective in the Teixcalaan empire - it's a culture that is obsessed with its own complexities. There is a lot of focus on language, and how language can be used to express a lot of different messages and meanings at once (and thankfully Martine didn't try to create a colang, but let her descriptions of the language suffice).

Behind the cloak-and-dagger maneuvers that drive the foreground action lies a consideration of the ways cultures maintain themselves and how individuals navigate “belonging” to such frameworks. It’s an absorbing and sometimes challenging blend of intrigue and anthropological imagination... It is also often quite funny, in a gentle and sneaky way.
