Lesbian necromancers in space! If that tagline didn't get you already, this book is perfect for anyone who loves impossible storylines. In this futuristic empire, what's left of humanity has settled across nine planets. As protectors of the Locked Tomb, the inhabitants of the Ninth are practitioners of necromancy, and its Reverend Daughter, Harrowhark, is in need of a cavalier so she can become one of God's hands. Gideon has a sword but wants nothing more to do with the Ninth. It's dark in a funny way, aesthetic--if you have a thing for skeletons, swords, and academia--and is one of my favorite books of all time. Gideon and Harrowhark are sure to stay in your brain forever (that's a little joke for Book 2).
