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. Again.

"[Come Tumbling Down is] Grotesque, haunting, lovely." -- Kirkus (starred review) 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 "The broken doors are open, and you should come and enter. Every Heart a Doorway feels like home." --B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
