The fifth installment in New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire's award-winning Wayward Children series, Come Tumbling Down picks up the threads left dangling by Every Heart a Doorway and Down Among the Sticks and Bones.
When Jack left Eleanor West's School for Wayward Children she was carrying the body of her deliciously deranged sister—whom she had recently murdered in a fit of righteous justice—back to their home on the Moors.
But death in their adopted world isn't always as permanent as it is here, and when Jack is herself carried back into the school, it becomes clear that something has happened to her. Something terrible. Something of which only the maddest of scientists could conceive. Something only her friends are equipped to help her overcome.
Eleanor West's "No Quests" rule is about to be broken.

"Author Seanan McGuire narrates the fifth installment in her Wayward Children series, transporting listeners to a terrible world filled with monsters, vampires, and dark temptations. Jack's murderous sister, Jill, has hatched a chilling plan that may destroy their home world. Enlisting the support of her school friends, Jack embarks on a dangerous journey home, desperate to stop her sister before it is too late. McGuire's narration is serviceable, but she reads at such an accelerated pace that listeners may not be able to truly savor the lush beauty of her prose. She is most successful with dialogue, as she allows the characters' tenderness and tenacity to come through. Still, listeners may regret losing the opportunity to settle into this intoxicating and thought-provoking story. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
