Ghosts, murder, secret societies... Urban fantasy at its best!
When you are offered a full ride to Yale, you say yes. But for Alex, the deal is more then just getting good grades - she has an assignment. She monitors Yale’s secret societies, assuring that their magical experimentation is kept in-house. One dark and stormy night, on haunted ground, a girl is found dead and Alex Stern must learn the cause - mundane or magic?
Grab this if you are a Bardugo fan, or love Kim Harrison and Jim Butcher!

Leah Moore

A powerful, atmospheric read set against the backdrop of Yale and it’s many secret societies; Ninth House is a dark novel, filled with interesting characters and an original plot that will keep you guessing until the very end. With her phenomenal writing, Bardugo weaves together a gritty, violent tale, that deserves all the awards and so much more.

“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.
