Gideon the NinthThe Emperor needs necromancersThe Ninth Necromancer needs a swordswomanGideon has a sword some dirty magazines and no time for undead bullshitBrought 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. “What greater debt could be accrued than that of being brought up” There’s an invisible collar rested around Gideon Nav’s throat its leash leading back to the Ninth House the claws of its heir fastened tight in her fleshHarrowhark Nonagesimus the sole daughter and secret ruler of the Ninth and Gideon Nav’s executioner by increment wore her destiny like a noose She kept the frailty of her house guarded locked down putting up a masterly front but a chance at competing for the prestigous role of Lyctor is the only way to save the Ninth from careening into a fearful darkness It was a last resort and one the necromancer couldn’t consider without Gideon Nav’s wiliness to fill the role of her cavalierFreedom stood unshackled in the bloodied light of Harrow’s coercive offer and Gideon felt its lure like a hook behind her heart She would serve as Harrow’s bodyguard in the trials and then flit out the Ninth like a loosed bird Gideon would no longer waste the years of her life as an outsider inside; doomed to grim survival in a world that wasn’t her ownBut once summoned to the decaying Canaan House where the trials are held the heirs of the nine houses find themselves confounded given only the barest scrapings of information about the competition tied to a stake and baited before they embarked on the wretched business of being murdered one by one Gideon and Harrow must fight back against the shadowy machinations of those who wished to sever their existence from the worldbefore the Canaan House becomes a slaughter yard The you struggle against the Ninth Nav the deeper it takes you; the louder you curse it the louder they’ll have you scream You don’t really know how high your hopes have been until you watch them plummeting earthward and you grappling around in the wreckage Gideon the Ninth snagged at my attention and I was beguiled by the promise of an atmospheric Gothic flavored chiller packed with catacombs and sarcophagi resurrections and revelations fantasy and horror Unfortunately the novel’s allure faded into the sky unmarked within the first few chaptersGideon the Ninth gets off to an uneven start We are immediately faced with thickets of unexplained jargon so dense it was difficult to find the other side and it was like guttering around in the dark with ink poured in your eyes For a while I waited for the dangling threads and wandering pieces of the story to be shepherded into a straight line as confidently as Dr Watson observing the actions of his prodigious friend but my continuous attempts at making sense of Gideon the Ninth became blighted abortive thingsFor one the worldbuilding is thin and my imagining of it was worn and tattered with holes like a mouse chewed cloth The novel is not particularly cogent or focused or informative about the actual setting and I was confused as though I’d walked in on the middle of the wrong movie The explanation of the different planets and the different castes and people who inhabit them is blurred to insignificance Some micro flaws in the logic also feel sloppy; there are copious pop culture references to Mean Girls and The Office but oddly some characters don’t even know what a sink isIt’s not until a little over halfway through—when the many strands of the narrative are held together by the unfolding closed circle mystery—that my interest begun to stir again feebly The whodunit becomes the driving force of the novel with conflicts coming to a head and silent tensions finally boiling over What seemed at first to be a random patchwork coalesces into a grander madder pattern and I felt like a lost sailor suddenly handed a compass If Gideon the Ninth had stuck to this relatively straightforward plot from the beginning it would have made for a solid winning read But the plot comes too late and by then I was so bored I barely managed to suint the words into focusTo the author’s credit they write Gideon’s inner and outer dialogue with flair but mostly skimp on showing in favor of telling Gideon’s voice feels conspicuously flat at points particularly in her stilted banter or maybe her sense of humor just doesn’t jell well with mine and in her contribution to the book’s larger arguments which are very few As Gideon and Harrow’s journey becomes stranger so does the novel’s voluminous cast of characters most of whom only show up when most convenient their personal conflicts relatively slight Not that these characters aren't arresting enough to warrant books of their own because they are Unfortunately that only underscores how really underdeveloped Gideon isWhat saves the book however is the ultimate bloodcurdling conclusion that is as sickeningly satisfying as it is opportune I’m also a sucker for the enemies to lovers trope and this book knew just which buttons to push Harrow and Gideon’s relationship is a pickled thing as though it’d been preserved in vinegar only to be pulled out to act as garnish to their artfully plated arrangement to be Necromancer and Cavalier The tension between them is a constantly low simmering fire—one errant breath of wind could fan it—and I snatched hungrily at those scattered moments between themGideon the Ninth was pitched to me as “ueer necromancers in space” giving me a bellyful of false hope It’s not exactly an inaccurate claim—just ratherflimsy There
