The Ten Thousand Doors of January
By Alix E Harrow
In the early 1900s, a young woman searches for her place in the world after finding a mysterious book in this captivating debut. In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls. Then she finds a strange book that tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure, and danger.
" The Ten Thousand Doors of January begins as a simple adventure, but like its mysteriously transportive doors, leads deeper and deeper the further you read. Each page dazzles with things to be discovered: a mansion of priceless artefacts, a secret journal, a tantalizing quest through strange and beautiful places, and a love story that spans time, worlds, and magic. I couldn't put it down."-- Peng Shepherd, critically acclaimed author of The Book of M
"A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through... absolutely enchanting."-- Christina Henry, national bestselling author of Lost Boys and Alice
