Orbit has unveiled the cover for Ancillary Justice by Ann Leckie. If it lives up to the promise of being 'space opera on par with Peter F. Hamilton and Iain M. Banks' then this is definitely a title to look forward to.

A warship is destroyed but her artificially intelligent mind remains in a single human body – why was she destroyed and will she find revenge?
They made me kill thousands, but I only have one target now.
The Radch are conquerors to be feared – resist and they’ll turn you into a ‘corpse soldier’ – one of an army of dead prisoners animated by a warship’s AI mind. Whole planets are conquered by their own people.
The colossal warship called The Justice of Toren has been destroyed – but one ship-possessed soldier has escaped the devastation. Used to controlling thousands of hands, thousands of mouths, The Justice now has only two hands, and one mouth with which to tell her tale.
But one fragile, human body might just be enough to take revenge against those who destroyed her.
