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...

Gideon The Ninth. --Forbes Unlike anything I've ever read. --V.E.

I would walk through the bowels of hell with her, and basically have. --Melissa Albert, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Hazel Wood
