A stand-alone fantasy tale from Seanan McGuire's Alex Award-winning Wayward Children series, which began in the Alex, Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award-winning, World Fantasy Award finalist, Tiptree Honor List Every Heart a Doorway 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.

Professional reviews

"Cynthia Hopkins narrates this fantasy in a detached tone that fits the serious and logical perspective of Katherine Lundy, a girl who finds her way into a magical world known as the Goblin Market. While fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series will feel comfortable with Lundy and her "high-logic" world, first-time listeners will not feel left behind. Lundy's love of logic and reason serves her well as she explores the Goblin Market, learning how to make deals of fair value and encountering distinctly voiced characters like the flighty, sharp Moon and the breathy, wise Archivist. As her dealings in the Market become larger, the stakes become higher, leading Lundy and Moon to decisions with lasting consequences. H.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
