Her city is under siege.

The zombies are coming back.

And all Nona wants is a birthday party.

In many ways, Nona is like other people. She lives with her family, has a job at her local school, and loves walks on the beach and meeting new dogs. But Nona's not like other people. Six months ago she woke up in a stranger's body, and she's afraid she might have to give it back.

The whole city is falling to pieces. A monstrous blue sphere hangs on the horizon, ready to tear the planet apart. Blood of Eden forces have surrounded the last Cohort facility and wait for the Emperor Undying to come calling. Their leaders want Nona to be the weapon that will save them from the Nine Houses. Nona would prefer to live an ordinary life with the people she loves, with Pyrrha and Camilla and Palamedes, but she also knows that nothing lasts forever.

And each night, Nona dreams of a woman with a skull-painted face...

Nona is a Different but Engrossing Novel in The Locked Tomb Series!

“Nona the Ninth” is the newly released third book in Tamsyn Muir’s The Locked Tomb Series. Like the previous two books, it’s amazing and very different. It takes place in a science fantasy setting where technology and necromancy coexist. There’s more background given in this book on how this universe came to be, which is chapters that are interspersed with the actual narrative of Nona’s story.

Nona is a simple girl, barely an adult physically, and only months old mentally. She is open and caring, and has a job as a teacher’s aide at the local school. She lives on a planet that is mostly composed of refugees who are just trying to survive. She has a group of friends that she wants to be a part of. Her caretakers are interesting people, two of whom inhabit one body. Of course, none of this is as simple as it seems.

Fans of The Locked Tomb Series will get a lot out of this book! It will also not be straightforward or easily grasped, but would we expect anything different? Nona’s simple, childlike, and likable point of view makes this a different sort of story. Nevertheless, the narrative of The Locked Tomb will be advanced, and some its history revealed. It’s a wild ride getting there, and it had me enthralled the whole way. The story will continue (and be concluded?) in the future forth novel “Alecto the Ninth.”
