    Summary

    When the Reverend Daughter Harrowhark Nonagesimus dies transforming Cytherea’s blood cancer into bone cancer, she leaves three people behind. When Camilla Hect dies by her own blade to save her necromancer one last time, she leaves two people behind. And when Gideon Nav disappears in the aftermath of the battle, she leaves one Lyctor behind.

    Three weeks later, Palamedes Sextus wakes up alone in the Erebos’ medical wing with a sword, innumerable unanswered questions, blank spaces where certain memories ought to be, and a new title—Palamedes the First.

    Summary

    Gideon enters the House of the Ninth for the first time when she is eighteen years old. She has a sword, an alias, and a mission. She needs to win the Reverend Daughter’s trust if she’s going to make her way into the depths of Drearburh and free the monster chained there. But Harrowhark Nonagesimus is cagey and haunted and, frankly, kind of a bitch. The Ninth House is a nest of horrors poised to swallow her whole. And Gideon is off the leash for the first time in her life, with everything resting on her success.

    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.

    Summary

    For all the many things she could say about Gideon Nav - her hideous sense of humour, the way she never listened, her tendency towards stupefyingly boneheaded violence as the solution to every problem - there was no denying that give her something purely physical to do and she would generally execute it with an efficient and brutal grace that was remarkable to behold, if only for the damage she left in her wake.

    Which is why it was mystifying what an absolute botch she was making of getting undressed.
