Tamsyn Muir's New York Times and USA Today bestselling Locked Tomb Series continues with Nona ...the Ninth? Her city is under siege. The zombies are coming back. And all Nona wants is a birthday party. In many ways, Nona is like other people. She lives with her family, has a job at her local school, and loves walks on the beach and meeting new dogs. But Nona's not like other people. Six months ago she woke up in a stranger's body, and she's afraid she might have to give it back. The whole city is falling to pieces. A monstrous blue sphere hangs on the horizon, ready to tear the planet apart. Blood of Eden forces have surrounded the last Cohort facility and wait for the Emperor Undying to come calling. Their leaders want Nona to be the weapon that will save them from the Nine Houses. Nona would prefer to live an ordinary life with the people she loves, with Pyrrha and Camilla and Palamedes, but she also knows that nothing lasts forever. And each night, Nona dreams of a woman with a skull-painted face...… (més)

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Nona the Ninth

Nona the Ninth is another confusing mystery of a story in the Locked Tomb series. Similar to Harrow the Ninth, readers are introduced to a familiar character who does not act like someone they remember. It’s also another beginning as the reader dives into life with Nona among characters who have joined pockets of resistance against the necromancers.

Nona is another unreliable narrator, but instead of focusing on the use of necromancy, the reader is introduced to life among the resistance. Tamsyn Muir paints the picture of a world where gunshots and explosions are a daily part of life. And as Nona befriends the children she works with at school, the reader is shown how even the youngest are affected. To them, necromancers are the ultimate evil and the reason for all the bad things that have happened to the world(s). Brutal examples are made of necromancers, or zombies as the populace call them.

As Nona builds relationships with those around her, hints are dropped as to who exactly she could be. I will admit I grew confused as different names were introduced and sometimes characters switched mid-paragraph to another name. I highly suggest you give the prior two books a reread before diving into Nona. At least reread Harrow the Ninth. Until I read the ending once again of Harrow the names and situations mentioned didn’t quite click. Unfortunately, even when everything came together, I found the big reveal to be anti-climactic.

Nona the Ninth is a set-up book. While it has a steady written flow, it is going to be a slow one. Don’t expect flashy shows of magic, or heavy action scenes. There are some points where the combat grows intense, but Nona is rarely the subject of the conflict; she is a bystander. The highlight of this story was the pieces of history woven into the plot. Nona dreams of a man telling her a story. A story where the names were redacted. I wish they had been used instead of letters, but it was interesting. The origin of necromancy will be revealed and all the cascading side effects that took place because of it.

Do not pick up Nona the Ninth and expect as exciting a read as the previous two novels. But I also urge you to not give up on the series after experiencing the different writing style. This is the lull before the storm. Readers have seen the complex and thrilling abilities of Tamsyn Muir. As we venture into the final book of the series, I have a feeling all the cards will be laid out on the table and it will be a book to remember. ( )

WTF. This book isn't what I expected, which seems a common occurrence. Nona is a character with maybe 6mo of experience, a couple of unusual abilities, ready affections in a world which looks like it won't be around to finish out the week. She is being cared for by 3 people in 2 bodies and "works" as a teacher's aid. I've rated this 3.5 because that's mostly what I rate books that are interesting to read and don't annoy me, but really I have no idea, just I didn't love it or feel it carried enough substance to rate it more highly.

This was fun.
I had no expectations for it when I heard that a there will be another book before Alecto finally comes out, but I was pleasantly surprised by it.
It is a crazy ride to figure out together with Nona who she is and in the end nothing is like it seems and yet everything is exactly how it seems, in typical Muir fashion.

Nona is sweet, Nona is loved, or it least liked, but then "what's like except a love that hasn't been invited indoors?" ( )

This is a filler book. But WHAT a filler book it is! I have no idea what is going on, but neither does Nona, so its okay. Does it make sense, I really have no idea. However, the characters are grounded, from Nona's Protectors, to Nona herself, a brand new being who just wants a birthday party. The history of the nine planets is touched on, including why John Gaius is God. That is also some crazy stuff. I quite liked that we see John going from reasonable, to not so reasonable as the book progressed.

A few things. There's a lot of stuff happening, and it starts immediately there is no summarizing of the previous book and while it is an immediate sequel to the last one, the setting and events are so different, it feels almost like a stand alone. There are references to the first two books, but because Nona is so... innocent and doesn't remember, the reader is mostly bewildered about what's happening.

I'm very curious what will happen in the next book, with this author, it could go so many ways. ( )

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. Two is for discipline, heedless of trial;

Three for the gleam of a jewel or a smile;

Four for fidelity, facing ahead;

Five for tradition and debts to the dead;

Six for the truth over solace in lies;

Seven for beauty that blossoms and dies;

Eight for salvation no matter the cost;

Nine for the Tomb, and for all that was lost.
