Description

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 unveils a solar system of swordplay, cut-throat politics, and lesbian necromancers. Her characters leap out of the audio, 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.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"Tamsyn Muir's absorbing storytelling and Moira Quirk's immersive performance create a richly imagined fantasy world.... Quirk is at turns antagonistic, vulnerable, and hopelessly helpful as she characterizes all the participants and stewards of Canaan House.... Listeners will eagerly anticipate the trilogy's next installment." (AudioFile Magazine)

Friggin' brilliant

I chose this book purely on having seen the opening line quoted somewhere, and I had no idea what it was even really about. And it was so goddamn funny and enjoyable, great ride, and I will need to find a way to work "Lo! A destructed ass!" into conversations somehow. My favourite thing is how the descriptions in the book are very effectively vivid--also unusually funny and sarcastic as well. I laughed often. The ending was also extremely satisfying.

The very singular bad thing is that as I write the review only the first two books are out, and I'll have to wait on the third.

Fun and spooky!

The narrator, Moira Quirk, did an excellent job of bringing these characters to life. I enjoyed hearing about the antics of Gideon the reluctant (and somewhat straightforward) cavalier as her more reserved counterpart Harrow worked to unravel the mysteries of Canaan House. I enjoyed the story's balance between the whodunit murder mystery plot and the (Grimdark version of an) "enemies to friends/lovers" subplot. There's a lot of subtlety in the dialogue that can be easily missed but is rewarding when you finally put the pieces together. I expect this series will only get more amazing as it continues. On to the next book for me!

Hilarious, touching and thrilling!

This is a fantastic book narrated wonderfully! Stop reading this and download it already!

I could tell you that the story manages to be wonderfully touching, hilarious, frustrating, and intentionally and playfully anachronistic. I could tell you that it often manages to be all those things in one paragraph but the best endorsement I can give is that it's more interesting than a lecture by Dr. Skelebone!

Lives up to the hype

A fantastic and heartbreaking book. I was worried I wouldn't like it as much as I wanted to, but I did. Great performance by Moira Quirk.

Good narrator, overly complicated story line

this book has a neat new take on a system of magic but is overly complicated. many of the characters could be interchangeable and any that aren't are obviously bad guysor good guys from the start. interesting world though and some good one liners from the main character.

this book was a rollercoaster of emotions

I'm at a lost on what to say. This book made me laugh cry and hide under my blanket in fright. the narrator did fantastic the setting was refreshingly unique and that ending has me tearing my hair out wondering what happens next and at the same time, waning to stay clear of the next book so i don't have to experience the heartache of a lifetime. This book will be one I listen to over and over and never get bored.
To the author ~

the best narrator

this narrator was great. there were a lot of characters and she had different recognizable voices for all of them.

Un-put-downable!

This book started slow and I almost put it down. I am SO GLAD I stuck with it because from the moment Harrow and Gideon left the Ninth, I could not put this book down! It is a labyrinth of shifting motives and loyalties, a spooky delight with a dry humor that kept me chuckling as I tried to guess at the factors at play and the twists coming. This book works brilliantly as a stand alone, but seeds just enough foreshadowing to make me want to pick up the next book ASAP!

A Unique and Throughly Enjoyable Blend of Genres

Gideon then Ninth was unlike anything I've read previously. Funny, mysterious, and at times emotionally devastating. The narrator does an excellent job of giving each of the characters a unique voice that expertly captures their individual roles and upbringings.
