Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Series: Unknown

Publication Date: April 5, 2016

Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children
No Solicitations
No Visitors
No Quests

Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.

But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.

Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced… they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.

But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of the matter.

No matter the cost.


Why I want this book

  • I like Seanan McGuire’s books–especially the October Daye series.
  • This sounds really good. Maybe a new series?
  • It sounds like many childhood stories make up the background of this book.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. sure is coming out with a lot of good stuff. Out of their new line of novellas, this wasn’t originally on my list to read, though the more I hear about it the more interested I am. I may give this a shot once we get closer to release!


    1. I’ll have to check out what else has coming out, Mogsy. I didn’t realize this was part of a new line of novellas. I like so much that Tor does so I need to check these out.


  2. Every Heart a Doorway sounds really good, Jan, I think I would enjoy this story. I’m wondering about the blurring between the fantasy world and the real world, and I want to know more 🙂
    Have a terrific Thursday and happy reading.


  3. I’m waiting for this one too. I can hardly wait! It sounds like it might have similarities to her Toby Daye series but even if not, it should be good.
