second book in the Locked Tomb series (make sure you read book 1, Gideon the Ninth, first). the nature of the murder mystery changes now over time, becoming more complicated, as Harrow the Ninth becomes Harrow the First, because everything changes as a result, including memory, alignment, location, and history. time may have stopped. it may be a pocket universe. or madness, of course. the older Lyctors are hostile, but the Emperor appears kindly. the cavalier is a declamatory poet, for whatever that's worth. Harrow is interacting more, but connecting less; large portions of her self appear to be missing. i loved this one too. ( )

Amazing follow up in the Locked Tomb series. The story follows Harrow and expands upon the world and the characters from the previous book. World-building is very light and the focus is on the characters. If you enjoyed Gideon the Ninth, then you will enjoy this book as it is very similar in how it is written and how the story unfolds.

Somewhat satisfying ending. It is written in the second person (You entered the room. You saw the sky through the window). That was a big turn off. There is an unreliable narrator. Harrow says she hallucinates and is not sure what she sees and remembers is real or not. She recounts the events of Gideon the Ninth but the events and characters don't line up with those in the previous book. Is this an alternate history? Parallel universe? Has some magic altered reality? I was discouraged from reading further than the first few chapters, but powered through. Things work out and events unfold in a satisfying way. The writing takes a lot of chances.

I gave the writing a chance because I like the setting and the world. It reminds me of Gene Wolfe's book of the new sun. That had a religious order (the torturers) abandoned and forgotten by an emperor in an empire thousands of years old engaged in a distant far off war. The main character there is a torturer. In this one the main character is a necromancer that manipulates corpses and bones. It is like the Mitchell and Webb skit where the Nazi officer notices his uniform is decorated with skulls and knives and asks his fellow officer if they are the baddies. These necromancers are probably the baddies but haven't realized it.

I will probably read book three when it comes out.

"The only thing our civilisation can ever learn from yours is that when our backs are to the wall and our towers are falling all around us and we are watching ourselves burn, we rarely become heroes."

I can't rate this book. I don't know what its rating should be. So I have left it with no stars, at present.

It is either an incomplete piece of brilliance that needs book #3 to finish it off, or it is a hot structural mess with bags of potential but a collapsed narrative arc. I genuinely, honest to Cthulhu, cannot tell which possibility is most likely at this point.

There were parts of it I loved, and parts that stay with me still. Is that enough for a 4 or 5 star rating? At the same time, I genuinely don't understand the ending. Between the shifting timelines and alternate such-and-such, I'm not actually sure what HAPPENED at the end.

I'm not the only person who was confused, so I don't think it's just me being thick. If it is, my apologies to the author. I adore Gideon as a character, and came to like Harrow. But the reveals were oddly staggered, and long stretches of interesting yet confusing events seemed to occur between equally confusing (yet beautifully written and somehow riveting) set pieces.

I could envision the storyline really pulling together in a grand operatic way with a third book, but it might yet dive into further proliferation and confusion. I will continue to recommend the series and will be reading book 3 when it comes out, but I am reserving judgment on book 2 for now.

Jeepers. I really didn't understand what was going on here. I didn't remember a lot about the first book, which was a finalist last year, but am not sure it would have helped if I had. Clearly appeals to quite a lot of people. ( )

One for the Emperor, first of us all;
One for his Lyctors, who answered the call;
One for his Saints, who were chosen of old;
One for his Hands, and the swords that they hold.
