A locked house murder mystery but with lesbian necromancers in space. If that sounds weird, it's because it is! and yet, this is one of my favorite books of all time. Irreverent, witty, and utterly unique, Gideon will make you fall in love with the necromancers and their cavaliers. -Mariana
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.
