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

Free download Harrow the Ninth Free read ä Harrow the Ninth Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Tamsyn Muir ✓ 2 Read Ontinues the story of the penumbral Ninth House in Harrow the Ninth a mind twisting 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 Side by side with a detested rival Harrow must perfe. 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 top that I had to reach into my brain and forcibly shut off the part of it that s responsible for logically trying to figure out what s going on instead just going along with a weird slightly insane ride where like in a haunted funhouse madhouse nothing is what is seems and what it should be I usually hate books that force me to do that But with Harrow the Ninth it was ultimately worth it I could protect you if you d only ask me to said Ianthe the First A tepid trickle of sweat ran down your ribs I would rather have my tendons peeled from my body one by one and flossed to shreds over my broken bones you said 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 said Ianthe Our weirdo fanatical necromancer Harrowhark Nonagesimus strange and creepy even by the murky standards of spacefaring necromancer society built on skeleton labor and bone magic and swordplay has supposedly ascended to the coveted Lyctorhood at the terrible cost of a sacrifice of the only living person she ever cared for becoming the superpowered magical knight to the Necrolord Prime the Undying Emperor for the last 10000 years Or so it should have been In fact everything seems terribly and confusingly wrong The powers are not what they are supposed to be the memories are not what we know happened the madness and insane confusion rule and God seems to go by the name of John Oh also there s a dead body ghost haunting you and a corpse that refuses to stay dead And half of it is in second person narration And it refuses to make sense for two thirds of the story Oh and the time jumps lets not forget that And what I can only call reality jumps as well in addition to time jumps Everything is just so wrong And Harrowhark Nonagesimus seems to really be losing it But Harrowhark Harrow who was two hundred dead children Harrow who loved something that had not been alive for ten thousand years Harrowhark Nonagesimus had always so badly wanted to live She had cost too much to die Tamsyn Muir could have stuck with the snappy juvenile ish snark that was both the best and the worst bit of Gideon the Ninth the one that made me both entertained and a bit tired from all the eye rolling It would have been fun and familiar But instead she throws us into the confused jumble of Harrow s possibly insane and very much haunted mind without a lifeboat It s sink or swim narration so grab the nearest piece of flotsam and stay adrift In the real world I have been fatally stabbed The place that holds my body is about to be overrun by thanergetic monsters created by a galactic revenant I am put bluntly on the verge of death My soul is under siege and I overwrote my real memories with a ghost filled pocket dimension which has now apparently been co opted by some kind of poltergeist From what I can tell I am stuck in here I cannot get out And I am about to die I may even be dead already which will render this all somewhat moot Under all the craziness this is a book about loss and grief It may be hidden and masked and avoided but it s constantly there just underneath the surface sharp and relentless Harrow is grieving even if she refuses to understand it And she feels tremendous guilt And let s not forget the haunted bit either She s struggling to survive all while around her the entire world is in danger and dead planet revenants are threatening the fabric of existence and the spaceshipboneyard can only protect them for so long and while the whole Lyctorship has gone terribly wrong and each chapter counts down to the Emperor s murderAnd necromancers still have to make soup That s not a jokeThe clues to what is going on are scattered everywhere You know those are all clues but putting them together is hard and for the two thirds of the story you d do better if you just collect them in your mind and let them sit there and wait until Muir comes to the part where answers start It s frustrating but also fun Some of them are easy some seem to come out of the left field but they are all rewarding There s a cringeworthy immortal heretical threesome that made me and Harrow flee in terrified embarrassment There are planetary homicides There are poignant ruminations on very messed up childhoods full of cruelty and neglect There are objectively terrible pop culture jokes and I am certain that Muir makes them glaringly obviously bad on purpose as a self aware mockery in this case There are loving and horrifying descriptions of bones and viscera that would fascinate anatomists and graverobbers alike Those who are dead make appearances since when has death stopped anyone in a society of necromancers and some of those make me sueal with happiness and you really should brush up on Gideon the Ninth plot prior to starting this book because otherwise it won t be nearly as much fun Do not fucking ask me for information I could not be lost right now Tamsyn Muir has created characters that are both immensely unlikable view spoilerexcept Gideon but not Gideon Prime Gideon is awesome and I love her dearly the ball of red haired juvenile snark she is hide spoiler
