- Following the news of the casting for Grishaverse TV show adaptation for Netflix, Leigh Bardugo's newly released novel and Adult debut 'Ninth House' has been picked up by Amazon to be adapted in a TV series
- Bardugo will write the adaptation and executive produce
- From a Goodreads review, the book contains lots of sensitive content designed to "fuck us up a little" (the author's words): TRIGGER WARNING [Spoiler (click to open)]"rape of a child, sexual assault under influence of a magical drug, drowning, heavy violence, gore, drug addiction, overdosing, death, suicide, blackmail, self-harm, and forced consumption of human waste."
- Ninth House's synopsis from Goodreads: "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. By age twenty, in fact, 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 elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive."
