The Emperor needs necromancers.
The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswoman.
Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time
for undead nonsense.
Tamsyn Muirís Gideon the Ninth unveils a solar system
of swordplay, cut-throat politics, and lesbian necromancers.
Her characters leap off the page, as skillfully animated as
arcane revenants. The result is a heart-pounding epic
Brought up by unfriendly, ossifying nuns, ancient retainers,
and countless skeletons, Gideon is ready to abandon a life
of servitude and an afterlife as a reanimated corpse. She
packs up her sword, her shoes, and her dirty magazines, and
prepares to launch her daring escape. But her childhood
nemesis wonít set her free without a service.
Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House
and bone witch extraordinaire, has been summoned into
action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his
loyal Houses to a deadly trial of wits and skill. If
Harrowhark succeeds she will be become an immortal,
all-powerful servant of the Resurrection, but no necromancer
can ascend without their cavalier. Without Gideonís sword,
Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.
Of course, some things are better left dead.
