Description

"Unlike anything I've ever read. Muir's writing is as sharp as a broken tooth, and just as unsettling." -V.E. Schwab on Gideon the Ninth

"Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original." -The New York Times on Gideon 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.

After rocking the cosmos with her deathly debut, Tamsyn Muir continues 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 shoulders. Harrowhark's health is failing, her magic refuses to cooperate, her sword makes her throw up, and even her mind threatens to betray her. What's worse, someone is trying to kill her. And she has to wonder: if they succeeded, would the universe be better off?

Review quote

"To read Harrow the Ninth is to enter a labyrinth haunted by loss and sacrifice and a truly top-tier selection of memes. But don't bother with breadcrumbs or red threads--you won't ever want to leave." --Alix E. Harrow

"Harrow the Ninth is a psychological rollercoaster covering forty billion light-years. It's wonderful to see the universe of Gideon expand, while staying as twisted and full of bones as ever." --Django Wexler

"Maddeningly brilliant." --Kiersten White

"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 the galaxy." --Rebecca Roanhorse

"Deliciously bonkers, achingly, heartbreakingly twisted and purposefully broken... So beautifully, wildly and precariously weird that I couldn't help sliding through page after page, rolling around blood-drunk in the mess of it all, and waiting, waiting, WAITING to see how Muir would bring it all home." --NPR

"An incredible journey into the chaos of the mind, Muir's latest (after Gideon the Ninth) doubles down on all the wonderfully queer and pulpy moments, body horror, and macabre humor of her debut--and exceeds it." --Library Journal starred review

"This dark, bloody puzzle box of a sequel is a knockout." --Publishers Weekly starred review

"Muir presents a series of enigmas and revels in gory detail before bringing everything to a riveting, no-holds-barred conclusion that will leave readers both satisfied and gnashing their teeth for a finale." --Booklist starred review

PRAISE FOR GIDEON THE NINTH

"Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original." --The New York Times

"Brilliantly original, messy and weird straight through." --NPR

"You've never read anything like... Gideon The Ninth." --Forbes

"Unlike anything I've ever read." --V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

"From Gideon the Ninth's peerless first line, Gideon Nav is one of the most charismatic narrators I've ever met. I would walk through the bowels of hell with her, and basically have." --Melissa Albert, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Hazel Wood
