Gideon the Ninth, Hardback Book

Description

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. 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 won't set her free without a service.

The emperor has called his necromancers to action, and Harrowhark is set on Gideon attending her as bodyguard.

If Gideon survives, she'll be a hero, and a free woman.

If not, she can look forward to eternity as a shambling bone-servant.
