If you’ve been meaning to read Seanan McGuire’s award-winning portal-fantasy novella, you’ve got no excuse today.
To celebrate the upcoming release of its sequel, Tor.com is offering Every Heart a Doorway for free until 11:59 p.m. tonight.
Every Heart a Doorway focuses on a home for troubled children, but these children are troubled by the experiences they’ve had after slipping into other, magical worlds, and then, slipping back into ours. But it’s more than a book about special children and fantastic worlds; it’s also a fantasy thriller featuring a rare asexual protagonist.
Want to know more? Here’s the synopsis:
Children have always disappeared under the right conditions; slipping through the shadows under a bed or at the back of a wardrobe, tumbling down rabbit holes and into old wells, and emerging somewhere… else.
But magical lands have little need for used-up miracle children.
Nancy tumbled once, but now she’s back. The things she’s experienced… they change a person. The children under Miss West’s care understand all too well. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world.
But Nancy’s arrival marks a change at the Home. There’s a darkness just around each corner, and when tragedy strikes, it’s up to Nancy and her new-found schoolmates to get to the heart of things.
No matter the cost.
