I cannot wait for my (knitting fanatic) wife to get to this bit, if she likes Ninefox Gambit enough to read the whole trilogy. 😁

blurb

I can't believe I paused in the middle of this to get distracted. No more! I want to finish this by the start of May to free myself up for @imyril's Wyrd and Wonder fantasy reading month. Also because this book is amazing, of course.

Between my last post and now I blew through to 43% of the book, with some time spent reading Twitter and despairing. But now I have to put both phone and ereader down and sleep. I swear I used to need so much less sleep!

(Wife keeps reminding me I turn 30 this year and must be slowing down. She's a few years older than me, so she'd know...)

Made wife pick which book I'm reading in bed, since I started way too many at once. She told me to get on with this series, so I am diving in. I really don't tear through a single series one after the other as much as I used to. 🤔 I miss that.

Another fantastic book. Squidapus was kept suckered to this by the crazy machinations of Jedao/Cheris? and who they even were anymore after the end of Ninefox Gambit. Why Jedao/Cheris usurps a Kel ship only to fulfill it's mission anyways kept us guessing. We get introduced to a whole new set of interesting characters and start to really see the enormous development of Mikodez and Kujen with an ending that had us immediately start the next book.

Squidapus and I saw the two sequels to Ninefox Gambit at the store for 10 bucks each and grabbed them up because for new books that's pretty darn good. So he's already about 100 pages into Raven Strategem and I feel like he'll go right into Revenant Gun after

I absolutely loved Ninefox Gambit, though it took a bit to really get into it. This morning is dedicated to reading the second in the trilogy, Rave Stratagem, which is already starting off strong. 😄

This might me my fave of the trilogy, unusually for a middle book. We have some info other characters don‘t, but we‘re also gradually learning more and more about Jedao‘s history and whom he‘s fighting - and why. Ahhhh! I dove into book three immediately upon finishing the reread, so we‘ll see.

Re-reading this trilogy is giving me life. The struggle is long, sometimes centuries long, but more people can be convinced of the rightness of the cause - especially when the authorities respond with cruelty and foolishness. (Yes, that‘s what this trilogy is about. And then there are the space battles, tech based on calendar holidays and ritual torture, the food, and much more.) #MachineriesOfEmpire #sciencefiction

Sadie and I are multi-tasking this morning. It actually hit 40 degrees outside, so we crushed a walk and got started on a new audio book. This is such a great series so far.

Started listening to this yesterday. Halfway through and it's starting to drag and I'm finding some of the viewpoints more interesting then others. Hope it's building up to something rather than floundering. Characterization remains weak.

This sci fi masterpiece lived up to the first book for sure, and I think its development of character may have surpassed Ninefox Gambit.

If you want a story that you can easily know gender, race, age, and agenda of every character, do NOT read this book. If you want novel written by someone who loves mathematics about a society who fundamentally controls through torture and fear whose army requires its recruits choose to relinquish their free will to be connected to hive mind, you should read this book!

Tadams4 Such a compelling review!! Very intriguing! 13mo

Bit late with my November stats. A solid month, but not as on point as I would have liked. I normally struggle to pick a favourite and I read some excellent books this month. The Expedition by Uusma was gripping, Seanan McGuire never fails to impress, and Anna dressed in Blood was so frickin good! BUT I still have a Raven Stratagem shaped place in my heart ....

Eggs A great month!! 1y

I decided to finish up instead of sleep. Oh daaaamn Cheris/Jedao/everyone. Daaaamn.

Definitely keeps delivering on the mind bendy promise of the first book.

This series is so bonkers and I love it so much. Two books in and I still feel like I'm not 100% sure what is happening about 40% of the time - but I am 150% along for the ride! Cannot wait to see how the author continues to blow my mind.

This book was completely bananas & I loved ALL OF IT. If you found the first book dense & difficult to get through at first, you‘ll find this one much easier. Not sure if that was because it was lighter on the Calendar world building (much of that done in book one) or if I was already familiar enough with the world. Fantastic book and not nearly as much death. But I have sooooo many questions and book three is so far away! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I enjoyed this more than Ninefox Gambit for the sole reason that I wasn't as confused by it. This felt like a tighter story too. Really well done.

This, the second book in the series, is a worthy sequel to Ninefox Gambit, which came out last year and recently won some major SF awards. I'm really excited to read more by this author, whether in this setting or in a new series. They are some of the most imaginative and well-written books I've read recently. Recommend!
