Ancillary Justice: 1 (Imperial Radch) by Ann Leckie
5.0 out of 5 stars Regreshingly original, 5 Feb 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and stylish, 16 Dec 2012
love this - really practical, good protection for your phone, plenty of storage for cards and notes without making the phone too bulky. But lose the stupid wrist strap - that is the only down point.
