Nona the Ninth | Tamsyn Muir

Decadent nobles vie to serve the deathless emperor! Skeletons! Charles Stross on Gideon the Ninth Unlike anything I've ever read. V.E. Schwab on Gideon the Ninth Deft, tense and atmospheric, compellingly immersive and wildly original. The New York Times on Gideon 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... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

I am more than a little confused by this book. And a little sad. But 4🌟

I love Nona. And Nona loves everybody. This book is so funny at times. Although nothing is as good as Gideon. I don't even care that I have no idea what's going on half of the time.

I loved this. Was hugely confused for a while as I struggled to decide which characters I remembered from Book 2 and which I didn‘t …. But Nona is freaking fabulous, I loved seeing the world through her childlike eyes, trying to figure out what her role in the wider story would be. I think Tamsyn Muir likes to smash each house of cards she builds in this series and play with the pieces. It‘s a lot of fun if you‘re willing to go for the ride 😍

Ruthiella I do love the ride! I‘m hoping to get to this in 2023. 1mo
Centique @Ruthiella it‘s so good! I needed to read a quick wiki of book 2 to recall some names 😂 1mo

There you go thinking you're reading a trilogy and suddenly a wild Nona appears! What a delight! What a lovely, lovely creature. I just wanted to hug her during the whole book.

Of course Muir deepens her universe and moves forward in her story. There are some new things to learn and sh... is going down once again. Especially the first part of the book when we went to school with Nona was great to read.

My fox mittens still need one thumb and some blocking, but they‘re mostly done! Here‘re the palms instead of a repeat of the fox face backs.

Finishing the bulk of mitten #2 got me 44% into NONA THE NINTH. It seems fashionable to find it overlong and insiderish, but I‘m loving it. Maybe that means I‘m a Locked Tomb insider? More likely, it means I love puzzle books with great characters and cool worldbuilding and unabashed New Zealandness.

What the heck did I just read?!

Book 4, ASAP, please.

I may end up buying all four books just so I can read them all at once when Alecto comes out and maybe make more sense of them. Which may be Tamsyn Muir‘s evil master plan… 🤔

KristiAhlers I‘ve been putting off reading these afraid they wouldn‘t live up to the hype 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly @KristiAhlers I‘m surprised there is so much hype because I would think they would be very niche. But I like them and I don‘t usually like weird for weird‘s sake. If you like weird, wild fantasy-SF, with mostly queer mostly horrible people, I‘d say… wait until Alecto the Ninth is coming out and then give Gideon the Ninth a try 😆 2mo
KristiAhlers @Clare-Dragonfly I‘ll do that. I love quirky reads. I just finished a book a couple of weeks ago where all the characters were a member of the LGBTQ community and it was really good. 2mo

I have enjoyed the Locked Tomb series, but this one was a bit of a struggle for me. I really felt like I was missing a lot (there's always a sense of that in these books) and the tone of this book is much different. Still, Muir's writing and character- and world-building are brilliant. If anything, I feel like I just need to reread the whole series before the next book comes out.

Don't pick this up and expect it to be as exciting as the previous novels. But I also urge you to not give up on the series. 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 I have a feeling all the cards will be laid out on the table and it will be a book to remember.

October 2022 was a pretty amazing reading month! I actually took an entire week off at the beginning of the month as a belated summer break and read 6 of the above books during that week. It was glorious.

Two of my most anticipated 2022 books, Nona the Ninth and Just Like Home, were every bit as amazing as I hoped. I finally got around to Convenience Store Woman, The Midnight Library, and Ten Thousand Doors of January, all of which rocked!

Oh my GOODNESS. Now THIS is a book to pull you out of a reading slump. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and am now busy speculating as to what will haopen in the sequel Alecto. Cannot say much more without spoiling things, but I loved seeing the sweeter sides of everyone in this installment. Really hope shit goes down in the final.

Nona is a breath of fresh air in a crapsack world. A quirky child with amnesia, naive, simple-minded and full of love, she tries to make the best of her daily life in postapocalyptic dystopia. The story is told from Nona's perspective, so it's way confusing, we have to assemble it like a puzzle, with details and references to previous books. That's hard work, with all the politics and military stuff. I googled for the explanations right away;) 4/5

Bookish Song Nr 42: Sleepwalking

Wow, this song just smashed me directly back into Nonas arms. The whole atmosphere, as well as the text just reminded me so much of this book. All the scenes and dialogues kept playing in my head and it was as if Nona stood right next to me.

That was intense.

We meet the cast of The Locked Tomb once more—all of them messy and confusing as hell, yet strangely lovable. This time we‘re seeing the events through the eyes of Nona, a born-yesterday woman-child, who understands what‘s going on even less than we do, and it‘s funny, and sad, and terrible, and glorious.

Man, do I love this series.

5.0/5

2.5/5⭐ Hard to like a book when you spend 75% of it frustrated with confusion. #bookspin

KristiAhlers Yeah I have not been a fan of that‘s series. I tried twice to read it and I just can‘t connect. Maybe one day. 4mo
hissingpotatoes @KristiAhlers I don't blame you. I think I liked the first two books better than this one because they had comprehensible character/relationship work to offset confusing plot/worldbuilding, but Nona seemed to focus more on plot without making it more understandable. 4mo

I like Muir‘s characters so much that I forget, between books, that the politics and rules of her universe and magic system slide right out of my smooth brain. The important thing about this novel is Nona got to pet the dog. Kevin swore the best oath. And Harrowhark was grumpy at many, many people.

Tamsyn Muir continually surprises me, and I'm not even sure why at this stage. It was a ballsy choice to follow-up an amnesiac story with another amnesia/unknown-self/lost-soul story, but she pulled it off. Overall it was really good, and will likely warrant a re-read fairly soon just to cross reference all the biblical references that appear throughout.

This weekend is The Harvest Moon Festival in my town! Basically everyone comes to the town square and there is live music, lots of local food, and craft beer! With the lights, fires, and fall decorations, it is my FAVORITE town event of the year! 🎃🍁🍂 I brought Nona with me, and reading this fever dream of a book while sitting on a haystack was definitely an odd experience! 😄💕📚

You can always enter a Locked Tomb novel knowing you won't know what the hell is going on, but you'll enjoy every moment of trying to figure it out—and Tamsyn Muir will always blow your mind to smithereens anyway, in the best way! As hilarious as it is gruesome, as mind-bending as it is heart-wrenching, Nona the Ninth is absolutely another rave-worthy installment in the best sapphic, necromantic space opera of all time!
