Announcing Nona the Ninth, a New Addition to The Locked Tomb Series From Tamsyn Muir!

Tordotcom Publishing is delighted to announce a new addition to Tamsyn Muir’s New York Times bestselling The Locked Tomb series with Nona the Ninth.

Nona the Ninth will publish in fall 2022, with Alecto the Ninth to follow in fall 2023. Eagle-eyed fans may have already noticed the shift from The Locked Tomb Trilogy to The Locked Tomb Series in this fall’s paperback edition of Harrow the Ninth, and Tordotcom Publishing is excited to announce this expansion of the beloved series.

Editor, Carl Engle-Laird said:

“At every step, The Locked Tomb Series has been a wild, weird, exciting, and surprising journey, and the process of concluding the series couldn’t be any different. Tamsyn Muir and I were as surprised as anyone when Nona arrived, bursting forth from Alecto the Ninth with an irrepressible energy and presence. She could not be contained, and demanded her own volume. And what a volume it is! Nona the Ninth will be a Locked Tomb novel like no other, and I’m very excited to share it with you. Look forward to meeting Nona, as well as a pack of rabid children, a menacing blue sky-circle, and at least one extremely good dog.”
