Bag om Ninth House

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo comes a mesmerizing tale of power, privilege, and dark magic set among the Ivy League elite.Galaxy "Alex" Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale's freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug-dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. In fact, by age twenty, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she's thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, 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?Still searching for answers, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale's secret societies. Their eight windowless "tombs" are the well-known haunts of the rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street's biggest players. 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.Ninth House is the long-awaited adult debut by the beloved author of Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows. Leigh Bardugo will take her place alongside Lev Grossman and Deborah Harkness as one of the finest practitioners of literary fantasy writing today.

Brugerbedømmelser af Ninth House

  • Martin L. 25. Juni 2020

    En absolut favorit!!

    Jeg kan ikke vente til bog to kommer ud!!!

    Intertekstualitet i Ninth House er fantastisk!! (jeg refererer til The Divine Comedy)
    Det er en mystisk bog spækket med plot-twists. Leigh har virkelig skrevet et mørkt fænomenalt mesterværk. Leighs skrivestil er eksemplarisk!
    Titlen for Goodreads Choice Award for bedste fantasy er så velfortjent ssom den nu kan være!

    Bogen tager sted i den virkelige verden med et paranormal aspekt som så veludført. Det er en bog der er utrolig relevant for nutiden der er også en øjenåbner. Efter jeg har læst den har jeg ikke kunne holde op med at tænke på den og tale om den. Ninth House berøre så mange dybe temaer som jeg tror der er mange som vil kunne relatere til. Bogen udforsker både stofmisbrug, seksuelt misbrug, mord og alt i alt en samfundskritisk fangende bog der er umulig at ligge ned.
