    Summary

    Fifteen years after the death of John Gaius, the Blood of Eden controls his former empire, Commander Wake at its head. The Houses survived Domincus’ implosion, with one exception: the Ninth, which refused all evacuation efforts and died with its planet. But Gideon Una, Wake’s daughter and heir to Eden’s throne, thinks her childhood best friend Harrowhark Nonagesimus may still live, and she wants her back.

    And she’s not above dressing a random chick in bone jewelry if she has to.

    Summary

    Gideon woke up floating, disoriented. Her bedroom was cloaked in the full dark of night, muggy with humidity. Her ceiling fan struggled to provide a sluggish breeze, going about one rotation per hour. Gideon felt an unfortunate kinship; it felt like her brain was swimming at the same rate.

    She took inventory of the situation:  

    1. Her mouth tasted like regret and beer.
    2. She was fully clothed, shirt, belt, socks and all. 
    3. She was wedged on her side by two pillow barricades. 
    4. There was someone in the bed next to her. 

    Carefully(the alcohol hadn’t entirely left her system) Gideon levered herself onto her arm, steeled herself, and turned around to observe a sight most gruesome. 

    The clock on her bedside table read 4:05am. Someone had left her window blinds open. Harrowhark Nonagesimus, her nemesis, roommate, and childhood friend was —holy shit— sleeping next to her.

    Summary

    The operation to the Ninth House has been a failure to all involved. Commander Wake failed to deliver her bomb, and Gideon the First failed to kill her.

    He did succeed, however, in stranding her broken shuttle.

    Alone, drifting without thrust or communications in deep space, Wake has dwindling options. There’s a limited supply of oxygen and food. There’s no way to tell if rescue is coming.

    And the cryochamber housing her undetonated bomb had to go and fucking break.
