Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

Großartig

Ein wirklich tolles Hörbuch, das von Anfang bis Ende Spaß macht. Die Sprecherin schafft es, jeden Charakter unterschiedlich darzustellen, sodass man auch, wenn man sich die vielen Namen nicht gleich merkt, immer eine Idee hat, wer spricht. Die Charaktere sind interessant und sympathisch (Harrowhawk anfangs sicher etwas weniger, aber das ist ja Teil dessen, was die Geschichte ausmacht), die Geschichte selber durchwegs spannend.

Man merkt eigentlich sehr schnell, ob einem das Setting und der Ton gefällt, hier ändert sich im Laufe der Geschichte wenig. Etwas unerwartet war, dass sich der Ton zwar nicht ändert, die Geschichte jedoch gegen Ende ernster wird, was aber insgesamt gut in den Ablauf gepasst hat.

Der Humor von Gideon muss einem gefallen, persönlich fand ich sie sehr witzig und erfrischend.

Insgesamt ein fantastisches Hörbuch; definitiv empfehlenswert!

Maybe get the physical copy as well

Audiobook is not the way to go with this, I really need the physical copy once they calm down with the price.
I don't know why so many reviewers hated the characters, I loved almost all of them. Sure, the names are mostly ridiculous, but they were all just so absurd and different and amazing?! I'm really looking forward to the sequel and I wish we had more characters joining us again because they were just such a joy to follow.
Gideon is hilarious and what I'd assume a normal person thrust into a world like that would be like, so I really appreciated her. Harrow was also just absolutely brilliant and I loved their banter.
I do think the world building could have been a bit better and it would have been nice to get a little more insight into everything.
The voice actress was great, so the only reason I'm saying this isn't necessarily the way to go is because there's just a lot of stuff happening and there are too many people with too many difficult names, so it's kind of hard to keep track of everything via audiobook.
