A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through . . . absolutely enchanting Devastatingly good, a sharp, delicate nested tale of worlds within worlds, stories within stories and the realm-cracking power of words A gorgeously written story of love and longing, of what it means to lose your place in the world, and then have the courage to find it again. This book is a door I'm glad to have opened Many worlds, vanishing doors, mind-cracking magic: I clung to each page, searching for answers. This is one of the most unique works of fiction I've ever read The Ten Thousand Doors of January healed hurts I didn't even know I had. An unbearably beautiful story about growing up, and everything we fight to keep along the way A love letter to imagination, adventure, the written word and the power of many kinds of love A tantalizing quest through strange and beautiful places and a love story that spans time, worlds and magic. I couldn't put it down
