"Unlike anything I've ever read. " --V.E. Schwab "Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space!" --Charles Stross 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.… (mais)

"Lesbian necromancers entangled in a Battle Royale cum murder mystery in a haunted mansion in space" sounds like a bad version of the "I trained AI to write" joke, but Muir pulls this off with aplomb. I loved the irrepressibly snarky goth jock lead, and these action sequences could go head to head with the best of shounen anime.

The world building was a little hand-wavy at times, but it was overall very forgivable due to extremely metal plot turns and a great ending. The author is also a notorious memelord; some of the (very aged) Twitter/internet jokes might not always land with everyone. ( )

So, Gideon is the swordsman of her house's death wizard, and the wizards and swordsmen of all nine houses are sent to an ancient castle to face trials and compete to be elevated to semi god like status. Spoiler alert - most of them meet a bloody death. I enjoyed most of the writing but after a while I got turned off by the focus on death and by the gruesome exploding bodies all over the place. Don't have much appetite for more of the same. ( )

The beginning of Gideon the Ninth has a lot of the same claustrophobia and role rigidity of Hugh Howey’s Wool (one of my least favorite books) set within a dismal, self-contained dwelling in a seemingly post-apocolyptic, failing technological environment peopled with despicable characters. Once the action moved off planet, there appeared to be some hope things would improve but the book quickly devolved into a Ground Hog Day interpretation of The Mouse Trap set in outer space (instead of a suburban supper theater) with most of the roles filled by skeletons, revenants and other weirdly undead who perpetrated ghastly locked room murders over and over and over and over again.

It doesn’t take long for any but the most neophyte fantasy reader to figure out there’s an origin story lurking somewhere for Gideon and probably for the whole “Resurrectionist” society in the book. Fortunately, just when I was getting ready to lose my will to live if I had to read any more of the book, a few of the origin story hints started to dribble out – just enough to keep me reading.

Unfortunately, as any but most neophyte fantasy reader would know, in a trilogy like this you’re never going to get all the answers at the end of the first book. True to form this one closed without revealing Gideon’s true origin, her body lost, her soul trapped in a Necromancer’s body on a space ship boldly going – Where? Who cares?

The one positive note of the book is its utter gender-neutrality, Women and men inhabit roles equally without any gender bias. A man sews. A woman is the best fighter in the group. Gideon seems equally attracted by men and women. No wonder the LGBTQ community has taken the book up with such fervor. Even without invoking identity politics, that view is still refreshing.

I gave the book two stars, the second star only because I finished it. And the only reason I finished it was for the same reason that I started it. In the science fiction book club I’ve recently joined, this remains a hotly debated book despite having been read quite some time ago. The group seemed strongly divided in opinion between loving and hating the book. Care to guess which side I came out on? . ( )

This was an unexpectedly hilarious, gothic, murder mystery in space. ( )

Very entertaining, interesting ideas, starts off a little slow but gets going at a good pace halfway. ( )

„Ich bin Gideon“ ist sprachlich überschäumend, grell und laut wie eine romangewordene Fahrt mit der Geisterbahn. Zugegeben, es gibt Passagen, in denen es noch ein wenig ruckt und rumpelt. Aber Tamsyn Muir ist jung, erst 1985 in Neuseeland geboren und „Ich bin Gideon“ ist ihr Romandebüt. Dieses Debüt ist ihr großartig gelungen.

Two is for discipline, heedless of trial;
Three for the gleam of a jewel or a smile;
Four for fidelity, facing ahead;

Seven for beauty that blossoms and dies;
