Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons!” —Charles Stross on Gideon the Ninth“Unlike anything I've ever read” —VE Schwab on Gideon the Ninth “Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original” —The New York Times on Gideon the NinthShe answered the Emperor's callShe arrived with her arts, her wits, and her only friendIn victory, her world has turned to ashAfter rocking the cosmos with her deathly debut, Tamsyn Muir continues the story of the penumbral Ninth House in Harrow the Ninth, a mindtwisting puzzle box of mystery, murder, magic, and mayhem Nothing is as it seems in the halls of the Emperor, and the fate of the galaxy rests on one woman's shouldersHarrowhark Nonagesimus, last necromancer of the Ninth House, has been drafted by her Emperor to fight an unwinnable war Sidebyside with a detested rival, Harrow must perfect her skills and become an angel of undeath — but her health is failing, her sword makes her nauseous, and even her mind is threatening to betray her Sealed in the gothic gloom of the Emperor's Mithraeum with three unfriendly teachers, hunted by the mad ghost of a murdered planet, Harrow must confront two unwelcome questions: is somebody trying to kill her? And if they succeeded, would the universe be better off?THE LOCKED TOMB TRILOGYBOOK : Gideon the NinthBOOK : Harrow the NinthBOOK : Alecto the Ninth F*ck When you're so emotionally wrecked by the first book and yet are totally ready for the second one to kill you even further what if we were goth necromancers in space who have to fight in a deathly war and we’re insistent on disliking each other and we were both girls 👉🏽👈🏽 No one does it quite like Muir.I could protect you, if you'd only ask me to.I would rather have my tendons peeled from my body, one by one, and flossed to shreds over my broken bones I would rather be flayed alive and wrapped in salt I would rather have my own digestive acid dripped into my eyes.So what I'm hearing is. maybe.And by that I mean no one confuses me so utterly, for so long, in such devastating ways, only to give me exactly what I want, and then completely messes with my mind, all over again, by the final pages of the book.What the fuck is going on? – what a moodLike, what, even is that? Huh? Seriously? How dare.You're certain that [spoiler] tried to kill Harrow?Yeah.But that doesn't– why would she–?Do not fucking ask me for information I could not belost right now.In a scarily similar recreation of my reading experience with GIDEON THE NINTH, this book took me forever to get through because of slumps, work, life, the world, etc Also because this book is over five hundred pages of who even fucking knows Truly, I had no idea what was happening because while I understood the words I was reading, and there were familiar characters and faces, even some familiarish events. nothing made sense I was confounded, confused, and having a crazy good time anyway This author has skills, I tell you No one else could put me through this nonsense and have me asking for .Stay here.Get fucked I absolutely did not become the eighth saint to serve the King Undying so [spoiler] could play hero for me.Why did you ascend to be Lyctor?Ultimate power — and posters of my face.All I can say is : don't go in expecting to understand anything Possibly ever Because what little I thought I had eventually grasped by the end of book one, was just, poof, gone, by the start of this And then what I thought I had pieced back together just before this concluded? Obliterated Elle oh elle.She wants the D [..] The D stands for dead.But speaking of that, I laughed, oh how I laughed Some parts were so outrageous I couldn't believe it It was weird, it was whacky, it was wonderful I wantBecause here we are again where I have been devastated with how this second book has concluded and I. what. but. I..I was not following all of this, because necromantic theory is a lot of hot bullshit even when I'm not busy having Complex Emotions.Yeah, I need book three, like, yesterday.4.5 stars** I received an ARC from the publisher (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review **This review can also be found at A Take From Two Cities.WHO DO I HAVE TO BONE TO GET THIS(is it bad that I laughed at my own bone joke wait don't answer this question) After the wonderful GIDEON THE NINTH, Muir could have stayed with what worked a snarky protagonist with a contemporary sensibility that while incredibly emotionally moving was also just a lot of fun but she did not play it safe In fact, she took safe and punted it out of the stadium and instead gave us this daring and challenging beauty of a book instead HARROW THE NINTH is not always an easy read The first half or so is in second person and is confusing and nonlinear and I often felt a bit confused and nonlinear myself but I trusted Muir to see me through, to have a method to her madness and to bring me home, and wow did she ever The patient reader will be rewarded tenfold with brilliant original characters and magic, heartbreaking intimacy, laugh out loud humor and the best damn soup in all the Nine Houses Muir is just so very good I wait with baited breath and sword in hand for the next book in this series and pretty much anything else this author writes.
