"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?"-- Provided by publisher.

Gideon the Ninth was an incredible book, but I spent a lot of this one wondering what the effing hell was going on. Between the various timelines, and wondering about that ending to Gideon, Harrow was a difficult character to grasp. I suppose it will come together at the end of the trilogy, but this one was a slog to get through

I read this the weekend after it released, and I've got to say I'm a bit disappointed. If you've read Gideon the Ninth and want to make it to the end of this trilogy, obviously, you're going to want to read this. But start with Gideon FIRST if you haven't, and go from there. I know that the author is trying to get us to get to the finale of this trilogy, but this felt too much like a filler book. Fortunately, Tamsyn Muir could make watching paint dry at least a bit interesting, so, this still gets 4/5 stars from me. It's just frustrating knowing that she could do better.

How did she manage to write a book even better than the first?

So fun. So impressive.
