The mindbending adventures of the necromancers continue Full review first posted on wwwFantasyLiteraturecom along with 3 others from my co reviewers there Harrow the Ninth the seuel to the Nebula and Hugo Award nominated fantasy Gideon the Ninth is incredibly ambitious decidedly wordy and highly confusing for about three uarters of the book at which point Tamsyn Muir finally begins to gradually pull back the curtainsHarrowhark the heir of the declining Ninth House a talented necromancer and Gideon s frenemy has left the planet of Canaan House in the company of the Emperor aka God and his few remaining elite necromancer warriors called Lyctors including Ianthe from Gideon the Ninth As they travel toward an impossible to win war with a Resurrection Beast and its hordes of giant insectoid soldiers called Heralds Harrow navigates a complex web of conspiracies and not knowing for certain who is on her side and who wants her deadOn top of that Harrow is struggling with a slower than usual process of attaining her full powers as a Lyctor along with a mental illness that seems to be warping her view of reality The first clue that all is not as it seems As Harrow recalls the events at Canaan House she remembers her cavalier as being not Gideon but her original Ninth House cavalier Ortus who reportedly had died in a spaceship bombing many months ago In what may not be entirely a coincidence one of the Lyctors who makes a regular play at assassinating Harrow though it s possible he s just trying to put her out of her misery is also named OrtusMost of Harrow the Ninth alternates chapters between Harrow s travels and interactions with the God Emperor and other Lyctors which are told in second person POV for what is actually a very good reason made clear much later in the book and a peculiar retelling told in third person of Harrow s experiences at Canaan House peculiar because these past events play out so differently in this retelling What is reality And just to make matters interesting there are several chapters told in first person POV at the endIt s been about five months since I read Gideon the Ninth and if I had known when I started Harrow what I know now I would ve stolen Gideon back from one of my kids and at least reread the last 50 or so pages and refamiliarized myself with the characters including the ones I thought were dead and gone see above re altered retelling of events at Canaan House Harrow the Ninth is both fascinating and frustrating and it often made my brain hurt Most of it was a difficult and opaue read because Muir is deliberately hiding the ball on so much from the reader for so long and I m a reader who thrives on understanding the overall context and scheme of a novel Some mystery is good but I felt that the confusing section which is about the first 350 pages should have been trimmed down by about a hundred pagesOn the positive side Muir is unuestionably a talented author with a gift for words and her prose was often a joy to read even when it wasn t at all clear what was going onThen everything changed forever Harrowhark fell in love Falling was not the right term precisely It was a long process She correctly climbed down into love picked its locks opened its gates and breached its inner chamberI also still love the interplay between fantasy and SF in these books where necromantic magic takes places in a rather decrepit science fictional setting The last 150 pages were excellent and truly enjoyable they re action packed and importantly some of the key uestions raised in this series are finally answered though fair warning Muir replaces those with several new uestions And clearly both of these first two LOCKED TOMB books would benefit from a reread Time permitting I ll do that before I tackle the upcoming third book Alecto the NinthIf you loved Gideon the Ninth I d definitely recommend Harrow the Ninth despite its challenges if you weren t a big fan of the first book I d probably give this one a pass Thanks so much to Tor for the ARC

    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 confu
