Well, it is with a heavy heart that I say I did not like this book as much as I wanted to. That’s fine, of course. I mean, this book is so perfectly Leigh I love it in that regard. I knew it would be a dark Gothic contemporary fantasy (is that a genre? I’m not sure “urban fantasy” can be used here but correct me if I’m wrong), and Leigh never shied away from saying that Ninth House deals and goes down some very dark avenues (see this Tweet).
This book also has a lot of content warnings, too. I found this list to be a good one.
