Teixcalaan

The action-packed space opera series from Arkady Martine, Teixcalaan, blends mystery and adventure on an interstellar scale. In the first book, A Memory Called Empire, the new Ambassador Mahit Dzmare arrives in the center of the ever-expanding Teixcalaanli Empire only to realize that her predecessor’s death, occurring at the height of political instability, was no accident. Acclimatizing to an alien culture, tracking down the murderer of the former ambassador to their small but independent mining community, and saving herself from harm’s way, makes for a riveting debut that will leave readers “utterly dazzled.”— New York Times Book Review
