    Three women go missing without a trace. A week is enough for the psychopath known in the press as the 'The Soul-Breaker' to destroy them. By the seventh day the women are psychologically dead, like bodies without a soul. Shortly before Christmas, The Soul-Breaker strikes again, this time in an exclusive psychiatric clinic. The clinic has been cut off by a snowstorm, and The Soul-Breaker is in their midst. Trapped in the clinic, staff and patients band together to protect each other, but in a night of unimaginable terror, The Soul-Breaker shows them that no one is safe.

    Breq - the soldier who used to be a spaceship - is serving the emperor she swore to destroy. She's been given her own warship, her own crew, and ordered to the only place in the galaxy she would have agreed to go: to Athoek Station, to protect the family of the lieutenant she murdered in cold blood. Athoek was annexed by the Empire some 600 years ago, and by now everyone is fully 'civilised'. Or should be - but everything is not as tranquil as it appears.
