Harrow the Ninth

Ct 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 uestions is somebody trying to kill her And if they succeeded would the universe be better off. Why did you ascend to be a Lyctor Ultimate power And posters of my face Most writers try to chase trends They rely on formulaic plots popular tropes and safe narrative choices hoping to give the public exactly what they wantTamsyn Muir is not one of those writersIt s difficult to explain what makes Harrow the Ninth so extraordinary If I had to sum it up in one sentence I d say that this book made me reconsider how stories work It challenged me to a point where I seriously uestioned my own sanity If Gideon the Ninth was as I often hear it described a crazy book its seuel dials the craziness up to a hundred and what is most infuriating about it is that somehow it works It shouldn t It should fail spectacularly going down like a shuttle falling into deep space ahem And yet reading this book was akin to looking at a cubist painting for the first time utterly confusing in eual parts puzzling and fascinating The most notable difference being that while a portrait by Picasso may certainly impress you but will hardly make you laugh Harrow the Ninth is also genuinely funny and moving Muir s writing is simultaneously full of heart and incredibly self aware as if the author was poking fun at her own characters and terrible punsThis book has all the wrong ships done right and all the right tropes done wrong it s raw unflinching and insanely creative It takes everything you thought you knew after reading Gideon and turns it upside down leaving you scratching you head and scrambling for cluesIt s a Christopher Nolan movie possibly Memento or maybe Inception tossed into a pool of lame Millennial humor and sprinkled with rainbow confetti a love letter to fanfiction 2000s pop culture and romance novels written with the lyricism of a biblical psalmIt s also a book that is very frank about mental health and the many ways trauma affects the way we perceive the world I applaud how Muir portrayed Harrow s mental illness which is based on the author s own condition making it an integral part of the plot and delving deep into the conseuences of grief and child abuse Harrow the Ninth is a science fantasy masterpiece and my favorite book of 2020Now all I have to do is lay down in the Locked Tomb and hibernate until Alecto is released

Harrow the Ninth the seuel to the sensational USA Today best selling novel Gideon the Ninth turns a galaxy inside out as one necromancer struggles to survive the wreckage of herself aboard the Emperor's haunted space stationShe 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 c. 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 non linear and I often felt a bit confused and non linear 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

    To sum up it’s a lovely migraine of a book “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” If you thought Gideon the Ninth was a bit bonkers do I have a surprise for you Enter Harrow the Ninth that makes “Gideon” seem like the easiest and most straightforward story there ever was “Harrow” is so deliberately confusing frustrating and over the

    Amazing seuel I respect this book a lot for taking serious risks and pulling them all off It's markedly different from the first book but also fully grounded in the larger universe of the story And without giving anything away there are twists that are so good and seem to be set up so early that now I want to read the first book all over ag

    I'm pleased to say that this seuel to Gideon the Ninth not only answers a few uestions but breaks the mold established by the first and plows through the fields of the dead to create or destroy all of creationI mean what else can you expect when you're dealing not only with necromantic gods in a supremely hi tech post humanity universe? Them to make soup?Oh wait yeahHonestly I was slightly bemused and slightly weirded out by the
