The emperor needs necromancers.
The ninth Necromancer needs a swordwoman.
Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no time for undead nonsense.
Tamsyn Muir Gideon the ninth reveals a solar system of sword fighting, breakneck politics and lesbian necromancers. Their characters jump off the page, as well animated as arcane revenants. The result is a heart-pounding epic science fantasy.
Gideon is educated by unfriendly, ossified nuns, old followers and countless skeletons and is ready to give up a life of bondage and the hereafter as a revived corpse. She packs her sword, her shoes and her dirty magazines and prepares for her daring escape. But her childhood nostalgia will not free her without a ministry.
Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House and Exceptional Bone Witch, was called into action. The Emperor has invited the heirs to each of his loyal homes for a deadly trial of reason and skill. If it succeeds Harrowhark, she becomes an immortal, almighty servant of the resurrection, but no necromancer can ascend without her cavalier. Without Gideon's sword, Harrow will fail and the Ninth House will die.
Of course, some things should be left dead.
