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.… (més)

Complex. Science fiction in setting and tone, but almost incidental to the story - this is a book of political intrigue. Slow and difficult to start, but ends well. ( )

I'm not particularly attracted to fiction about political machinations and palace intrigue, but this book did a good job of pulling me in and getting me invested in the characters and their situations. It's a slow-moving story, what action there is is not terribly pulse-pounding, but with the time spent on character development and world-building, the action is quite satisfying, and even surprising. This book reminded my a lot of [b:The Goblin Emperor|17910048|The Goblin Emperor (The Goblin Emperor, #1)|Katherine Addison|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1373039517l/17910048._SX50_.jpg|24241248], another dense fish-out-of-water story of politics and violence. An enjoyable read, and I'm looking forward to the next book set in this world. ( )

New category for me (that is I have read books that fit this category, just hadn't learned the name!): Diplomatic space opera. Mahit Dzmare of the Stationers is sent as Ambassador to the heart of the Teix . . . caan Empire (yah, unspellable) to replace the former ambassador only find that he has died. Stationers have learned a way to preserve the memories of people and place them (through a tiny device in the brainstem) and anyone considered worthy will be 'passed on' in this way. It is the consciousness, yes, of that person, but a kind of grafting occurs to make a combined person--carefully chosen for compatibility, involving a lot of psycholtherapy etc. Normally. Mahit has five years worth, fifteen years previous, of the now dead Ambassador she is replacing. As well she inherits a very complex situation because the current emperor is dying and others are jockeying for his post. Her brief is to preserve the independence of the Stationers-a tough assignment given the Empire's proclivity to annex anything and anyone. Her assigned liaison officer turns out to be a great match and together they figure out, with another friend, how to navigate a mine field. Well written, great characters, super story line. All around excellent read! Looking forward to book 2! ***** ( )
  sibylline | Aug 29, 2022 |
An excitingly sophisticated, and very human exploration of space-age culture and politics from the perspective of a "barbarian" in the heart of her neighboring empire, torn between assimilation and identity. It conjures up many interesting questions of self, the role of history, and of memory. ( )

Very good; reminds me very strongly of Ann Leckie's works. I don't really care for the main character too much, she just doesn't seem very strong or particularly clever but the world building in this is great. ( )

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.
 
Arkady Martine has created a stunning accomplishment with her debut novel; A Memory Called Empire is a success by every metric possible.

A scholar of Byzantine history brings all her knowledge of intricate political maneuvering to bear in her debut space opera.
 
A Memory Called Empire Is a Compelling Political Whodunnit Wrapped in Intriguing Sci-Fi Worldbuilding
