A snarky swordswoman, the Necromancer she hates and serves, and an abundance of skeletons!

Muir’s book drops you right into Gideon’s 87th escape attempt from the Ninth. She’s fed up with her life of servitude that would likely just be followed by an undeath of more servitude. But as before, her archnemesis and head of her house has other plans. The necromancer Harrowhark has been called to the service of the Emperor and she must be accompanied by a bodyguard. Unfortunately, Gideon is the best swordsman she’s got. This is a dark, funny, horrifying, and a wonderful read! Part sci-fi, horror, mystery and fantasy all rolled up in this inventive series starter.
