Harrow the Ninth

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.

Hopefully this awful situation will teach some of y'all that you need to stop harassing survivors once and for all.
Hey Taz Muir...

I 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... yeah.
Honestly, I was slightly bemused and slightly weirded out by the kind of pacing and style in the first part of the ...more
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
Harrow the Ninth is like being put through a series of bizarre emotional windsprints. I laughed. I keened. I was buoyed up by triumph which was, even then, bittersweet. I spent the entire book not knowing at all what was going on and I still don't. Pressing questions were answered and even bigger questions posed without answers. New characters were ...more
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
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
My hearts already a pulped mess of quivering jelly, and I know, just from the blurb, that this books going to destroy whats 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. Im suffering! ...more
Harrow the Ninth isnt a very reliable narrator. Shes pretty sure shes insane, because she keeps seeing and hearing things no one else canright? She knows that her cavalier died in order to make her a Lyctor, a semi-immortal knight of the Emperorbut if they did, why are none of her Lyctor powers kicking in? And shes only mostly sure she can trust the Emperor, aka God, who makes a surprising number of dad jokes, and shes pretty sure she cant trust any of her fellow Lyctors, because one of them is...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
A brief and somewhat spoiler-ish summary:
So I have a theory: we have already met Alecto the Ninth in GtN but we dont know who she is. I have a guess: she is the girl Harrow saw when she was a kid! Cant wait to come back to this phenomenal world! ...more
