Inhaltsangabe

Harrow the Ninth, the sequel to the sensational, USA Today best-selling novel Gideon the Ninth, turns a galaxy inside out as one necromancer struggles to survive the wreckage of herself aboard the emperor's haunted space station.  

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 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 perfect her skills and become an angel of undeath - but her health is failing, her sword makes her nauseous, and even her mind is threatening to betray her.  

Sealed in the Gothic gloom of the emperor's Mithraeum with three unfriendly teachers, hunted by the mad ghost of a murdered planet, Harrow must confront two unwelcome questions: Is somebody trying to kill her? And if they succeeded, would the universe be better off?

Worthy Follow-up

While the second book in the locked tomb series continues almost directly after the first, it does throw a few narrative curveballs which might make getting back into the story somewhat difficult. Additionally, the bit overlong third act explains some things but raises a whole lot more questions. The performance of the narrator is still superb.

The insane asylum destroys the universe

This is a mixed book. Part of the mystery is an unreliable narrator, but it is somewhat complicated to keep track of the deliberate distorted PoV, especially in the audiobook format where you can as easily go back and forth. On top of that everybody not just the narrator seem literally insane. It makes sense, people aren't supposed to live 10000 years but it makes for a very strange but at times hilarious going ons. In the last third of the book the unreliable narrator is resolved, and we get some much needed connection to the last book, unfortunately it also kind of falls apart after that. Ending on the oddest comment in the entire book where it is described as "evil" to save the lives of millions of people, because it meant one person that told a lie that caused the death of 6 people 10000 years ago would live, and the narrator at that point isn't even supposed to be unreliable or hate the person. The narrator is excellent but makes a number of confusing mistakes. Including making a 30-40 year old man sound like he is ancient, and mixing up the wrong voices at multiple times.
