Gideon the Ninthav Tamsyn Muir159
15+ pages of new, original content, including a glossary of terms, in-universe writings, and more! A USA Today Best-Selling Novel! "Unlike anything I've ever read. " --V.E. Schwab "Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space!" --Charles Stross "Brilliantly original, messy and weird straight through." --NPR 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 Muir's Gideon the Ninth, first in The Locked Tomb Trilogy, 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. 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 Gideon's sword, Harrow will fail, and the Ninth House will die. Of course, some things are better left dead.

"Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original." --The New York Times "Unlike anything I've ever read. Muir's writing is as sharp as a broken tooth, and just as unsettling. This book is visceral, vivid, and downright violent. In short, absolutely marvelous." --V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Warm and cold; goofy and gleaming; campy and epic; a profane Daria in space. --Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore "This crackling, inventive and riotous book from an original voice is a genuine pleasure. Also the author is clearly insane." --Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan and Gun Machine "Gideon the Ninth was a combination of all my absolute favorite things: swords and magic and spaceships and far future tech, plus childhood angst, slow-build romance, and characters banding together to solve mysteries in a haunted space palace." --Martha Wells, author of the Murderbot Diaries "I can't remember the last time I was so delightedly baffled by a book. An astonishing, genre-defying, hilarious-violent-tragic-horrifying-thrilling wonder of a novel. Muir has become an auto-read author faster than Gideon turns any conversation inappropriate." --Kiersten White, NYT Bestselling Author of And I Darken "Gideon the Ninth remixes magic and technology to create a blisteringly awesome new world--and best of all, it's funny as hell." --Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous and The Future of Another Timeline "A glorious book--rich and baroque, tremendously vivid, absolutely glorious." --Genevieve Cogman, author of the Invisible Library series "Gideon the Ninth was a combination of all my absolute favorite things: swords and magic and spaceships and far future tech, plus childhood angst, slow-build romance, and characters banding together to solve mysteries in a haunted space palace." --Martha Wells, New York Times Bestselling author of the Murderbot Diaries "Brilliantly original, messy and weird straight through. With a snorting laugh and two middle fingers, the whole thing burns end-to-end. It is deep when you expect shallow, raucous when you expect dignity and, in the end, absolutely heartbreaking when you least expect it." --NPR Truly compelling fun. Muir's impressive first novel offers a heady and macabre mix of science, necromancy, constant danger, and a healthy dollop of Gormenghast-like weirdness like no other.--Locus "You've never read anything like Tamsyn Muir's debut novel Gideon The Ninth." --Forbes "An incredibly immersive book, with a rich, detailed mythology, gorgeously balanced sentences, and a genuinely meaningful central relationship. I started this book chuckling at the outrageous premise. I finished it crying, because the ending punched me straight in the gut." --Vox "Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space! Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons!" --Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files and Empire Games "Punchy, crunchy, gooey and gore-smeared, Gideon the Ninth is a pulpy science-fantasy romp that will delight and horrify you to the bitter end." --Kameron Hurley, author of The Stars Are Legion and the Worldbreaker Saga "By turns a slasher movie and a sorcerous slugfest, with a snarky protagonist and a deep, complicated relationship at its heart." --Django Wexler, author of The Shadow Campaigns "Necromancers! Dueling! Mayhem! Gideon the Ninth is disturbing and delightful in equal measure--I loved it to pieces." --Yoon Ha Lee, author of the Hexarchate series and Dragon Pearl "Muir effortlessly compiles macabre humor, body horror, secrets, and tenderness into the stitched-together corpse of a dark universe, then brings it to life with a delightfully chaotic, crackling cast of characters and the connective tissue of their relationships." --Publis
