5.0 out of 5 stars Great read!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 November 2019
This is a dark (like, very dark in some places) adult fantasy.

‘The Nineth House' follows a young Galaxy (Alex) Stern through her first year at Yale. She's been plucked from a dismal life with no prospects, and given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study at a prestigious university AND be part of a secret magic society (I mean, who wouldn't do that?).

The narrative is set in a few different timelines, and from two perspectives (Alex and Darlington). I particularly enjoyed this because I really thought Darlington was a bit of an arse to start with, but as I read his backstory I really connected with him.

Alex won me over pretty quickly, and her rash, crude personality really shone through!

What I particularly love about this book is the fact that you can really immerse yourself in the magic. However, the darkest part of this story has nothing to do with magic and secret societies; it's the harsh realities that some women are faced with.

This is definitely a book to savour and not devour!

It's a 5/5 for me!

This rolled from weird, to strange, to turning my stomach in certain scenes, to being completely devoured by the story in others and off putting in others. This was, simply put, a strange ass read and conflicting when it comes to rating. Overall, I did enjoy this book, especially the second half once it really got going and I started to fully understand this world and got a handle of all the lingo within this fantasy horror world.

It was originally such a dense read that had so much exposition, yet it still took me so long to understand all of what was going on within this world. If it wasn’t for the second half, or last third and for something finally clicking, then I probably would’ve rated this lower. I went through such a sluggish reading period because of this book, whether it was because of the writing or the story I don’t know, but the relief I had when I finally finished it and was finically invested in this book was so satisfying. I am intrigued to read more of Leigh Bardugo books, just to see how her writing in those compare to this one and whether I enjoy those ones and the worlds in those, a lot more than I did when compared with this one.
