***First impression after finishing on ma 23 sept. 2019***
I don't really know how I feel about this story. I enjoyed myself but some stuff really drove me BONKERS (see status updates). Even though I didn't know what to expect I still expected something different?

I mean I'm glad to see a lesbian but when you're marketing this as 'lesbian necromancers in space' and the focus isn't on that aspect at all... I don't know. Also... Hardly any space things at all. Maybe because it's the first in the series?

I felt like this was more a murder mystery. And normally I don't go for those kinds of stories. I think some people would enjoy that aspect more than me. Then again I'm a dummy so I never guess who did it.

Thomas of SFF180 of course. I don't know when or in which video but I the day I added this to my TBR pile was 13 Juni 2019.
"Lesbian necromancer" I think those words were enough. Even though I pre-ordered I just got this today so I have been avoiding everything on BookTube about the story. I like to go in blind so here we go! ( )

"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.

Ugh. I'd heard nothing but great things about this book, and I was quite excited to dive into it.

...and then I actually experienced the terrible, awful, "look at ME!" narrative voice of Gideon, with her penchant for overstating threats, and counting everything, and substituting teenage snark for any sort of meaningful dialogue or narration.

If I want that, I can just go back a few years to my own kids' teen years under my roof.

I'm sure there's likely some good to be found somewhere in the 94% of this book that I completely skipped, but frankly there are no fucks left in me to give over a story that was narrated so terribly.

I'm out. DNF at a lousy 6% because I couldn't even bring myself to get to the requisite 10%.

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. ( )

Based on the reviews of many, I expected to find the first half of this book hard, complicated, confusing, alienating, a slogging struggle. Still, I should have relied on the fact I fell into a 20% opinion on book one, and it would follow into this one. I found 0% struggle in reading this book (that wasn't just giving up on reading this series in DNF/Nope Just Nope relief, and then a few weeks later, convincing myself to sit down and read this book for three friends who are madly in love with it). I was enchanted utterly with the first 75% of the book in the way I never was with the last 25% (or the entirety of book one), and just like book one, I predicted 'The big twist' somewhere around the 40% of the book.

But let's start at the first of those three. Within the first 10-20%, I was gratified to see that you could absolutely identify in Muir prose where she's growing as a writer (and no, I'm not referring to the second-pov in the slightest). Her turn of phrase is getting more lyrical in small bursts and places. Not reliably constant or worth much in the way of bookmarking, but like unexpected flowers in brand new baby writer frost. Absolutely important to remark upon when they'd shoot through the snow.

I loved the shift between the first-and-third points of view and how you could tell from the 3rd or 4th 3rd-person Harrow section that Harrow had rewritten her memory from the first time she mentioned 'no other children surviving' and 'Ortus' being alive. Sadly, as mentioned above, it was super easy to figure out that second-person-pov was Gideon and that was a drastic disappointement.

Hear me out here; it's not because it was Gideon herself (after getting over predicting it SO EARLY like the Book One Villain, I was enchanted by the idea of her twisting even this death/this warped and tangled relationship between Harrow and Gideon). It was because Muir fell into the writer trap you can't defend in first-or-second pov. Gideon's voice is nothing like Gideon's Voice, Gideon's dialect, Gideon's swearing, Gideon's turn of phrase (with which we are very well acquainted). Because she wanted to do THE BIG TWIST REVEAL as Gideon emerged and did her flippy-floppy first-AND-second pov muddle shift (which that part was fine it itself as Gideon's voice was defining itself).

But you CAN NOT feasibly make first-or-second which is in the head of your character LIE/NOT LOOK LIKE ITSELF/NOT EVER THINK OF THINGS/NOT KNOW ITSELF/NOT QUESTION ITSELF IF IT DOESN'T KNOW ITSELF/NOT HAVE CONNECTIONS OR MEMORIES. You are talking inner thoughts or inner storyteller. You. Cannot. Do. This. Reliably. Or. Unreliably.

I was crestfallenly crushed by this happening. As it's a 'Massive Black Mark' in the things I cannot take after studying Literature and Teaching it. It's weak and convenient writing at its worst, and it wants to SURPRISE/SHOCK by ignoring the rules of the format you chose yourself. There are so infinitesimally few books that write in the first or second pov, and even more infinitesimally in that category that makes this mistake. As much as she grew in prose, she stagnated in refusing to own her 90's creative writing MFA pov experimentalism.

(Like with the Gideon twist, I predicted the Annabell Lee Poem --> AL --> Alecto --> The Body in the Tomb alarmingly early. Which does make trying to find any surprises in this book that aren't in the last 10% a little tiresome.)

Things that pleased me.

I love 'Older Generation Characters' with a mad passion. Those people who are grizzled, worn, and so over their own BS, who can't stop overlooking your younger generation main characters as infants, especially when a child is less than twenty and they are centuries and centuries old. I loved the complicated networks of love, loyalty, hate, secrets, intimacy, self-blurring. Please do give me all of this.

The same as with playing with this older generation trio (and endless mentions of moresomes), Muir started to play with thousands of years of epic backstory, which was sometimes insanely good and sometimes incredibly slipshod. I continue to remind myself this is only her second book, and she does show promise.

I loved the return of the earlier cast as ghosts and all that they got to go through. Some tragic and glorious full circle bits about choosing deaths and loyalties, how people have been, and Dluci getting to be her actual selves & the meeting of those ghosts with the future of some of those within their ranks as well as venerated heroes of old. I actually got super moved by parts of the goodbye, off to re-die in noble ways thing.

Harrow, as ever, remains my favorite character, but my feelings toward Gideon are absolutely softening in the grown voice of her (when she reverted back to being the correct Book 1 version of her voice and not the you-can't-tell-it's-me-cause-I'm-not-acting-like-me voice of the first 75%). I really loved getting to see all her thoughts while inhabiting Harrow's body. The concern and consistently staying in the voice of first-person-I, but also constantly being told as though she was sitting somewhere telling it all to Harrow constant second-person "you's."

A super solid 3.5 this time, which is a big step up for feeling like it was still exhaustedly-still-feels-too-generous giving Book 1 a 3-that-just-didn't-deserve-a-2-either. I am, suprise of surprise, kind of looking forward to reading book 3 whenever I have a lull in my big reads during the year it comes out. ( )
