Staff Reviews


Alex Stern has always seen ghosts. This bane of her existence finally proves useful when, after a horrific murder, she is offered a full ride at Yale. The catch is she has to work with a group in charge of overseeing the supernatural rituals of Yale's eight secret societies. But things get ugly pretty quickly and soon her investigations become life threatening. Poor New Haven does not fare well. A fabulous start to a new series in the vein of The Magicians.

“Queen Leigh’s first foray into adult fantasy is a sensational success! One of the best fantasy books I’ve read in a long while, Ninth House contains Yale secret societies, ghosts, magic, morally gray characters, and murder. Bardugo balances dual timelines with intricate precision, and the history and world-building of her fantastical New Haven is superb. I couldn’t put this book down; I had to know what was going to happen next. I savored every moment reading this novel, and I am jealous of readers who get to experience it for the first time!”

Description


Galaxy �Alex� Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale�s freshman class. Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug-dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. But Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world�s most prestigious universities on a full ride. What�s the catch, and why her? Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale�s secret societies. But their occult activities are more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive. They tamper with forbidden magic. They raise the dead. And, sometimes, they prey on the living.
