Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children ... Jacqueline was her mother's perfect daughter--polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it's because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline. Jillian was her father's perfect daughter--adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you've got. They were five when they learned that grown-ups can't be trusted. They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.… (mer)

I wasn’t wild about Every Heart a Doorway but that hook at the end snagged me into going on with the series. I’m so glad it did – this is deliciously dark and beautifully written. ( )

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. If you feel anything in my review is a spoiler and is not already hidden in spoiler brackets please let me know. Thank you.

That one was even better than the first one. I wanted to know more about Jack and Jill's story after the first one, and this book did not disappoint. It explains the girls and why they are the way they are so much better. Their world sounds like an old black and white horror movie with vampires, werewolves, mad scientists and more. It's great!

One of my absolute favorite parts of this story is Jack and Alexis' romance. It's one of those few stories where someone finds a curvy girl attractive. As one of those girls its always nice to read about it once in a while. A reminder that not all girls are stick figures and some people like that.

This book has set the bar high for the series, and I can only hope that the rest of it will be able to achieve my new expectations of it.

How I choose my rating:
1* Hated it. I had to force myself to finish it.
2** Didn't like it. I didn't hate it but not sure why I finished it other than for some closure.
3*** I liked it. I had some issues with it, but as a whole it was good. I probably won't reread ever, but there is a chance I might finish the series. (If part of one) But if not it's not a huge loss.
4**** I really liked this book. Maybe not a work of genius, but highly entertaining. I might reread this, and I will finish the series. (If part of one) I would recommend to those I know hold interest in this book's content.
5***** I loved this book. I found little to no issues with it at all. I will be rereading this and probably more than once. I will finish the series and reread it multiple times. (If part of one) I will recommend this book to EVERYONE!!!!

A very interesting read - I'm not sure if coming to this series in the middle has affected my experience of the work as a whole, but I'm quite interested in reading the first in the series. At times this tale was utterly expected, but I also found myself desperately attached to one of the characters and needing to know what would happen. The ending was all too sudden and I had to scroll back and forth to convince myself that it was indeed the end. I'm torn! Enjoyable, but strange, and I want more. ( )

Beautifully written, without being too flowery. Every sentence sounds like it was crafted by a master storyteller. The story itself is sad and disturbing, but therein lies some of the beauty because Seanan McGuire is so good at capturing the heart and soul of what makes us human. This would be a perfect October read. ( )

*reviewed by uncorrected galley copy, courtesy of publisher*

fiction (fantasy/fairytale with lots and lots of darkness; one of the twins is incidentally queer though the text doesn't mention much past kissing). a short stand-alone that prequels Every Heart a Doorway, recommended for fans of twisted fairytales and Neil Gaiman (i.e., great storytelling). ( )

I think the rules were different there. It was all about science, but the science was magical. It didn't care about whether something could be done. It was about whether it should be done, and the answer was always, always yes.

People who knew Chester and Serena Wolcott socially would have placed money on the idea that the couple would never choose to have children.
