Reviews

"Muir's headlong contemporary prose style finds a new and unsettling register in this witty, yet disturbing and doomed novel of space magic and lost girls." --Warren Ellis

"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

"The masterful second genre-bending tale in Muir's Locked Tomb trilogy (after Gideon the Ninth) ratchets up the horror, hijinks, and gallows humor of the series to a fever pitch." --Publishers Weekly starred review

"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

"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

"The masterful second genre-bending tale in Muir's Locked Tomb trilogy ratchets up the horror, hijinks, and gallows humor of the series to a fever pitch... Ending on a heart-stopping cliffhanger sure to have readers clamoring for the next installment, this dark, bloody puzzle box of a sequel is a knockout." --Publishers Weekly 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. With a snorting laugh and two middle fingers, the whole thing burns end-to-end. It is deep when you expect shallow, raucous when you expect dignity and, in the end, absolutely heartbreaking when you least expect it." --NPR

"You've never read anything like Tamsyn Muir's debut novel Gideon The Ninth." --Forbes

"An incredibly immersive book, with a rich, detailed mythology, gorgeously balanced sentences, and a genuinely meaningful central relationship. I started this book chuckling at the outrageous premise. I finished it crying, because the ending punched me straight in the gut." --Vox

"Unlike anything I've ever read. Muir's writing is as sharp as a broken tooth, and just as unsettling. This book is visceral, vivid, and downright violent. In short, absolutely marvelous." --V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Warm and cold; goofy and gleaming; campy and epic; a profane Daria in space. --Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

"This crackling, inventive and riotous book from an original voice is a genuine pleasure. Also the author is clearly insane." --Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan and Gun Machine

"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--but from the eldritch deeps of the Ninth House to the winding halls of a mega-Goth space castle, it's my kinda hell." --Melissa Albert, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Hazel Wood

"Gideon the Ninth was a combination of all my absolute favorite things: swords and magic and spaceships and far future tech, plus childhood angst, slow-build romance, and characters banding together to solve mysteries in a haunted space palace." --Martha Wells, author of the Murderbot Diaries

"Lesbian necromancers explore a haunted gothic palace in space! Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons!" --Charles Stross, author of The Laundry Files and Empire Games
