Book Review - Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Nancy once found a doorway to a different world. She entered and loved where she ended up. However, her time there wasn't unlimited and she's back. Staying with her parents proves to be difficult after all the time she was elsewhere, so she ends up at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, a home that's filled with children like Nacy. They've all found ways into some kind of magical world and most of them long to be there again.

Something isn't right in the home, the peaceful existence they've managed to achieve has suddenly come to an end. Someone is committing horrible crimes and the staff and the children who are staying in the home are at risk. Nancy and her friends need to discover who's behind the gruesome attacks, so they can keep themselves and others safe. Will they be able to find answers before it's too late and this person strikes again?

Every Heart a Doorway is a fantastic story. I was immediately intrigued by the worlds Seanan McGuire describes. She divides them into Nonsense and Logic worlds, which is a brilliant idea. I loved the mystery behind the crimes in the home, the various magical lands and the memories the children have of them. Nancy is a strong and clever girl and I liked her from the beginning. She can stand up for herself, she's a good friend and she knows what she does and doesn't like. This makes her an amazing main character and I couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to see what would happen to her.

Seanan McGuire's vivid writing style always manages to pull me into her stories straight away. Every Heart a Doorway is spellbinding and original. It's an impressive and incredibly well written book. I love how creative Seanan McGuire's plots are, how skilled she is at world building and how thoroughly she makes every scene come to life. Every Heart a Doorway is a very special story filled with suspense, magic and power. I highly recommend this beautiful book.

  14. I'm a little bit perplexed, and curious, about the title of this book. While I did enjoy the review, it wasn't at all what I might have been expected. I'm kind of confused...
    The interesting title had got me thinking about love, relationships, friendships, decisions, doorways, pathways, paths taken and not-taken, opportunities, doors closed... I wonder if I might be on the mark at all, with the contents of the ~actual~ book? :p
    ...I'm primarily curious, about the title. And that was my roundabout way of describing it. :)
