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 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.

Lots of bones in this one

V. Adamczyk, Thalia-Buchhandlung Augsburg

I was not prepared for how much I was going to love this book! I was reluctant to read it at first, (since I'm typically not a huge fan of Science Fiction) despite the amazing reviews. Honestly, I was a little afraid to be underwhelmed... But 30 pages in, I no longer had that fear. Quite the opposite, actually. What a wild ride. It’s such a weird, hilarious and frustrating experience (and I mean that in the best way possible). If you want a story to grab you by the shoulders and shake you until your bones rattle, this is it. I’m still in awe.
