The way this book tested my mental strength. I felt like I was going insane, I couldn't believe anything that was happening was actually true. I was questioning this book and if I truly was going to like this book. BUT they fucking pulled me back in with all of those plot twists and everything coming together. And of course, it just had to end on a god damn cliffhanger. I can't wait to read more of this series. ( )

OMFG, what? I mean, whaaaaaaaat?!?!?

I hardly know how to review this, because it is by far the most compelling mindfuck I've ever fallen into, and I'm not sure if I like that? And I'm not entirely sure that I even understood all of the plotlines, but I sure as hell didn't want to put it down. Be prepared for a descent into madness, I mean, probably. Be prepared to question your own sanity/memory, after a while. Be prepared for the body-exploding, sword-fighting, necromantic lesbians to come raging back, eventually. Good luck. it's totally worth the journey.

Confusing, nonsensical, plot less and just an absolute drag. Don't bother with this ( )

Hopefully I'll write a proper review later, but having just finished, I think at best I can manage 'holy hell, WTAF'.

Took a while to warm up; Harrowhark is possibly the most unreliable narrator I have ever had the pleasure to read, but that eventually becomes clear as to why. If you read the first book, there is quite a bit of 'what am I missing', but it might be even more confusing if you haven't.

multiple tumblr in-jokes; they were a good bit of levity in some quite tense situations. ( )

What the FUCK did I just read.

Never has a book made me so very angry, while simultaneously begging for more. I had Very Big Complex Feelings about Gideon the Ninth, and the sequel took those feelings and multiplied them by eleven. (Especially in the first four acts or so.)

Luckily vindication was (eventually) forthcoming. ( )

Epigraph
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.
Dedication

who understood Harrow too well,
and without whom so much of me would not have happened
