Every Heart a Doorway racked up comparisons to C. S. Lewis and Lewis Carroll, and the Wayward Children series has delighted and mesmerized readers. This fourth entry and prequel tells the story of Lundy, a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should. When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she's found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well. For anyone . . .

Recensioner i media

"This is a lovely installment of the series, with pitch-perfect fairy-tale logic...The series as a whole has wonderfully internally consistent world building--and characters, no matter how far in the background, with complexity and depth." --Booklist Praise for Every Heart a Doorway "With Every Heart a Doorway, McGuire has created her own mini-masterpiece of portal fantasy -- a jewel of a book that deserves to be shelved with Lewis Carroll's and C. S. Lewis' classics, even as it carves its own precocious space between them." -- NPR "Seanan McGuire has long been one of the smartest writers around, and with this novella we can easily see that her heart is as big as her brain." --Charlaine Harris "One of the most extraordinary stories I've ever read." --V. E. Schwab "This is a gorgeous story: sometimes mean, sometimes angry, and always exciting." --Cory Doctorow for BoingBoing "So mindblowingly good, it hurts." --io9 "McGuire's lyrical prose makes this novella a rich experience." --Library Journal starred review "This gothic charmer is a love letter to anyone who's ever felt out of place." -- Publishers Weekly "Seanan McGuire once again demonstrates her intimate knowledge of the human heart in a powerful fable of loss, yearning and damaged children." -- Paul Cornell, author of London Falling and Witches of Lychford
