Harrow the Ninth
by Tamsyn Muir (Tor, 2020)
audiobook read by Moira Quirk (Recorded Books, 2020)
Muir contrives to make this sequel as disorientating for fans of the first book as it would be for new readers. The story retains its compelling allure (credit again to Moira Quirk’s reading) but the immersive mystery-solving devolves into exposition and setup.
