In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children)

In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children)

"Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series is easily my favorite fantasy series happening right now, but In An Absent Dream is by far the best. Read it on its own or as a prequel to the series—McGuire packs an imaginative punch into just over 200 pages. This gem of a book blew my mind and broke my heart and I'm so glad it did."

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. The Wayward Children Series Book 1: Every Heart a Doorway Book 2: Down Among the Sticks and Bones Book 3: Beneath the Sugar Sky Book 4: In an Absent Dream
