Harrow the Ninth
Harrow the Ninth, the sequel 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 station.
She answered the Emperor's call.
She arrived with her arts, her wits, and her only friend.
In victory, her world has turned to ash.
When I said one couldn't write a crazier book than Gideon the Ninth, I didn't mean it as a challenge.
What's even crazier though, is how my absolute dumbass brain decided it was a good idea to read what I already knew was probably going to be my favorite book of the year on January 1. Congratulations you idiot, you now have to wait at least another year to figure out what the fuck that ending meant.

thank you macmillan for an advanced copy of this book
i've been obsessed with gideon the ninth for MONTHS, and i'm also obsessively making theories and holding on to this world so to say that i'm looking forward to this book would be a HUGE understatement
This was an absolute bonkers shitshow and I loved almost every minute of it.
The first third or so was bewildering, and I spent most of my time parsing what I was supposed to know from what was intended to be confusing. But by the middle, when things started falling into place, I felt like all of the issues paid off. The middle third of this book was devastating, exciting, hilarious, triumphant. It was everything Gideon was ...more
My heart’s already a pulped mess of quivering jelly, and I know, just from the blurb, that this book’s going to destroy what’s left. The thought of Harrow wandering around a gloomy old ship without Gideon by her side – I just want to sit on the floor and cry. I’m suffering!
I have to lie down and stare at the ceiling for several hours and just whisper, "what the fuck?" Repeatedly. To the dark.
I HAVE FINISHED HARROW THE NINTH AND I AM STILL NOT READY TO READ HARROW THE NINTH, PLEASE UNDERSTAND IT IS BETTER THAN GIDEON AND I HAVE NO CLUE WHY OR HOW
I should write a longer review, but for now: official blurb:
Harrow builds on all the impossibilities and bizarre brilliance of Gideon. It manages to be both a thorough and heartwrenching exploration of ...more
So I have a theory: we have already met Alecto the Ninth in GtN but we don’t know who she is. I have a guess: she is the girl Harrow saw when she was a kid! Can’t wait to come back to this phenomenal world!
Harrow the Ninth isn’t a very reliable narrator. She’s pretty sure she’s insane, because she keeps seeing and hearing things no one else can—right? She knows that her cavalier died in order to make her a Lyctor, a semi-immortal knight of the Emperor—but if they did, why are none of her Lyctor powers kicking in? And she’s only mostly sure she can trust the Emperor, aka God, who makes a surprising number of dad jokes, and she’s pretty sure she can’t trust any of her fellow Lyctors, because one of...more
Oh I did.
Anyway. This book. THIS BOOK. Maybe I can be more coherent later, but I love this book with all of my much-stabbed then re-healed necromantic heart. Two-thirds in, when you get to that spot (you'll know the spot I'm talking about), you'll shout a lot ...more
