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's career isn't the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the hexarchate itself might be next. Cheris's 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.… (mere)

Captain Kel Cheris has been afforded an opportunity to redeem herself in the eyes of Kel Command. But the task before her, recapturing the Fortress of Scattered Needles from heretics, will not be easy. So she finds herself partnering (in a sense) with Shuos Jedeo, an undead tactician who reportedly went mad while he was alive--and on a madness-inspired murder spree. But what Jedeo brings to the mission may be exactly what Cheris needs to succeed. She just needs to figure out how much she can trust Jedeo--and how to make use of his expertise without letting him take over...

An epic space adventure if there ever was one. And the world that Yoon Ha Lee has created here is one that is quite intriguing. There is honestly a lot to keep track of, especially at first, but I would say it's manageable for most astute readers. And it is a great examination of the question of taking risks, and determining which of those risks are necessary in order to succeed. Is it worth introducing more danger to an already dangerous situation on the chance that it may be the only way to get through to the other side? ( )

The first chapter almost lost me, but I'm glad I stuck it out. This book takes Clarke's third law to extremes like few other books, which can be off-putting or exciting, depending on your tastes. The world-building is reminiscent of Ancillary Justice, which remains one of my favorite books of all time. I'll definitely read the next books, and I'm tempted to give this one five stars, but it's on the edge, and probably closer to 4 than 5. ( )

I was slow to orient in this complicated world. But that was part of the ride. It's immersive and complex and good space marines fun. The last part of the book ramps up in action and pacing. The ending struck me as particularly fine. I found it completely satisfying as a stand alone novel. And the set up for the sequel is there too. ( )

For many years as a SF veteran, what I always found incredibly irritating was the ability of SF writers not to know any kind of science and what they wrote turned instead into technobabble like this crap of a book called “Ninefox Gambit”. If it is to be science fiction, then make the fictional part of the science at least minimally plausible. I distinctly do not want to see mountains floating in mid-air or long lost races of humans that amazingly speak perfect English - unless there is a carefully built and plausible explanation for it (not examples taken from this novel but you get the gist). The potential range of fictional scenarios is still vast, even when held to reasonable extrapolations of known physical and social science. If you don’t base your fictional universe on sound terminology and concepts it’s just technobabble. No other word for it. In other words, you’ll have no story!

If magic and weird terminology is what SF consumers and producers want today, fine by me, but clearly label it as such. But, even in that genre, an effort has to be made to maintain consistent rules within the context of the story so that disbelief - for the purpose of amusement only - can be playfully suspended. Unfortunately, and all too often, fiction writers like Yoon Ha Lee are more interested in moving the story along than in being consistent with the accepted rules of knowledge or even with the rules they themselves create.

Utter nonsense. Don’t bother. Another contemporary stupid SF novel. It’s more like a “New-New-Weird” than a bog standard military SF, with all the calendrical heresy and nonsensical mind sharing stuff…Unfortunately this is what passes as hip and trendy SF today… I am terribly bored with the trend of botched and careless futures we see in science fiction at the moment. Bart Simpson said it best, "Depressing [SF for] teens is like shooting fish in a barrel." ( )

I am generally not a fan of info dumps but this book really needed a Scalzi caliber info dump early on. ( )

Nevertheless, Cheris is still rich enough, as she stands, to make the whole book work. She lands in the middle of an elaborate and incomprehensible plan and figures out a way through it that is uniquely her own, and that speaks to what matters to her. This isn't unlike what the reader of Ninefox Gambit has to do. "You know what's going on, right?" Ninefox Gambit asks. Often, you have to say, "Uh, yeah, of course," when the real answer is "I have no idea, but I really, really care." And then you keep reading.
 
Lee knows that if the fate of the world is at stake, the reader has to care about that world, so he uses language as a way to reveal a beauty that can be found even in the depths of an interstellar war. He builds more in a couple of sentences than some authors manage in entire novels, and beautifully.

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's career isn't the only thing at stake. If the fortress falls, the hexarchate itself might be next. Cheris's 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.
