Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir


Tamsyn Muir’s necromantic science fantasy debut Gideon the Ninth is the most fun you’ll ever have with a skeleton

“Unlike anything I’ve ever read. ” —V.E. Schwab

“Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space!” —Charles Stross

Starred reviews from Publishers WeeklyKirkusLibrary JournalBookPage, and Booklist

The Emperor needs necromancers. The Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswoman. Gideon has a sword, some dirty magazines, and no more time for undead bullshit. Tamsyn Muir’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 science fantasy.
