Queen of Zazzau https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07H1VP5MQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_BQ5fDb2D74F14

Amina is heir apparent to the throne of Zazzau and must prove herself worthy of the crown. As foreign invaders close in on them, she is the only thing standing between her people and their destruction. Caught in a web of prophecies and intrigue, she must defend Zazzau, but cannot do so if she wants to prevent the future that was foretold. She did not seek war; it found her. Unwilling to be the plaything of gods or men and determined to take control of her own destiny, she tracks down the god of war himself. But has her destiny already been written? Can she choose her own fate? And can she protect her kingdom, no matter what price she must ultimately pay? Because, gods always want something in return.

I didn't get it - but Paul snapped it up so it'll turn up in the family library. I still haven't read any Leckie - I sort of went off hard SF in recent years.

Yeah, this looks pretty good. The stuff I've read from here is worth reading, so with luck the rest will be as good.

I read this from the library a year or two ago. Not bad, but it's definitely the first of a series, in no way does it stand alone. I wasn't so gripped that I went out of my way to hunt down the rest.
