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 Muirâ€™s 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 wonâ€™t 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 Gideonâ€™s sword,
Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die.
Of course, some things are better left dead.
