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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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
This is a gorgeous story: sometimes mean, sometimes angry, and always exciting. Cory Doctorow for BoingBoing
One of the most extraordinary stories I've ever read. V. E. Schwab
"[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
“Themes of sacrifice, love, and hope weave through this grim yet achingly tender tale. New and returning readers alike will be enthralled.” Publishers Weekly
