The first installment of the trilogy, Ninefox Gambit centers on disgraced captain Kel Cheris, who must recapture the formidable Fortress of Scattered Needles in order to redeem herself in front of the Hexarchate.

To win an impossible war, Captain Kel Cheris must awaken an ancient weapon and a despised traitor general.

Captain Kel Cheris of the Hexarchate is disgraced for using unconventional methods in a battle against heretics. Kel Command gives her the opportunity to redeem herself by retaking the Fortress of Scattered Needles, a star fortress that has recently been captured by heretics. Cheris' career isn't the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the Hexarchate itself might be next. Cheris' best hope is to ally with the undead tactician Shuos Jedao. The good news is that Jedao has never lost a battle, and he may be the only one who can figure out how to successfully besiege the fortress. The bad news is that Jedao went mad in his first life and massacred two armies, one of them his own. As the siege wears on, Cheris must decide how far she can trust Jedao - because she might be his next victim.

4.0 Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee
I know I said I had hangups about one of the setups near the start of the book and it still seems odd to me, but overall this book is really good. Once I was past those first few chapters, I was pretty much glued to the book. Cheris is a fairly low-ranking infantry officer in the Hexarchy who is u...

5.0 Review: Ninefox Gambit
Superb, high intensity plot with wildly interesting world building and compelling characters. This audiobook is great. I bought the sequel as soon as I finished it. Based on reviews I had read, I expected to be lost for a few chapters, but this was not the case. I was hooked from page one. Maybe ...

2.0 Ninefox Gambit Review
There are some books that demand your full attention and dedication to reading the monster, but they pay off in the end. They’ll never be books you rave about, but you’re glad you read them for one reason or another. (Aurora, 2312, etc.) And there are books like Ninefox Gambit. They demand full atte...
