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.

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.

Winner: 2018 Alex Award Winner: 2018 ALA RUSA Fantasy Award Seanan McGuire returns to her popular Wayward Children series with Down Among the Sticks and Bones—a truly standalone story suitable for adult and young adult readers of urban fantasy, and the follow-up to the Alex, Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award-winning, World Fantasy Award finalist, Tiptree Honor List book Every Heart a Doorway Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. This is the story of what happened first... Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter—polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline. Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter—adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you've got. They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted. They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

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.

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 Beneath the Sugar Sky, the third book in McGuire's Wayward Children series, returns to Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children in a standalone contemporary fantasy for fans of all ages. At this magical boarding school, children who have experienced fantasy adventures are reintroduced to the "real" world. When Rini lands with a literal splash in the pond behind Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, the last thing she expects to find is that her mother, Sumi, died years before Rini was even conceived. But Rini can’t let Reality get in the way of her quest – not when she has an entire world to save! (Much more common than one would suppose.) If she can't find a way to restore her mother, Rini will have more than a world to save: she will never have been born in the first place. And in a world without magic, she doesn’t have long before Reality notices her existence and washes her away. Good thing the student body is well-acquainted with quests... A tale of friendship, baking, and derring-do. Warning: May contain nuts.

The Black Dungeon Doorway The Black Dungeon Doorway is a Science Fiction/Fantasy Novel which I, Kyle Lance Proudfoot, have written. It is a romping metaphysical exploration through multiple realities with 4 characters: Orthe, Wodora, Aera and Pyre. With magical and technological devices and telepathic, psychic, telekinetic and magical abilities we go through worlds, progressing through Planes Of Existence. This happens through blinking doorways, doors, portals or gates with sensory panoramas opening up and new dimensions of mind, body and soul being discovered... Throughout our adventure, quest or mission we think, telepathically communicate, talk, converse, philosophize, debate and battle to explore the nature of reality. Regardless of your own opinions and beliefs, one cannot deny within the one big reality the existence of multitudinal different observations and experiences, thus multiverses. The storyline leads us to a greater discovery of our god-like heroic nature. In the stunning conclusion, there is a higher realization of the true and higher Power and Energy Level's in reality and how in some way we can each become Immortal! The Black Dungeon Doorway is not only a dark dungeon into the realms of the subconscious and/or unconscious but also a maze and puzzle as indicated by the chapter titles. In many ways, it is also not only a 4D symbolic representation and construction of the Universe but also of the human mind and various bodies, aspects and layers which we each possess. If you ask me, the Astral Plane or Dream World is not only symbolic, figurative and/or metaphorical but quite literal, especially in the After Life... The Black Dungeon Doorway is Part 1 of a trilogy. The second part is Planes Of Existence. The third and final part is The Door Of Light or Door Of Light. All three books are based on the complete MMORPG System which I have developed starting with Apotheum Colluseum, the Battle System of The Free Show. I grew up in Toronto, Canada, free spirited, idealistic and lightly optimistic. Though I have now put a good dosage of realism into my perspective, I will still have hope for the future and I will never give up my own 'dream of delusion'. In 1996, I moved to the Netherlands and continued my life's work which are on my websites in the form of FREE Draft's. I have a propedeuse in both Philosophy and Psychology and my highest acquired diploma is MCSE (NT). I am presently busy as a Webmaster, Web Designer and Web Developer and am next to being an Author, also a Musician, Artist and Actor. See my resumé. My interests are diverse: Literature, Films, Music, Art, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Photos, Video, Philosophy, Religion, Science, Politics, Space, Travel, Biking, Fitness, Nature, The Free Show, 3D Games, 3D Game Development, Family, Friends, Information Technology, Open Source Programming Languages, Cooking. Personally, I have a strong sense of humor and am an intellectual and emotional Pisces with my Moon in Aries. I like to be direct and honest but sometimes one has to put water in the wine. Since a young idealistic teenager, I have always had a good sense of Moral's and Values, however this is also tempered by logic and reason. I like to read, debate, argue, converse and philosophize about various topics, alone and with others... Having funny, fun and relaxation is a top priority in all my activities, otherwise I cannot take life seriously either, or I get too stressed out... My two websites are: Silverlingo.com and Planesofexistence.eu . I also have other url's which refer to these two sites such as the title of my books. I hope you enjoy reading The Black Dungeon Doorway since I put all of my mind, body, energy, spirit and soul into it, drawing on the most fantastical and hyper modern ideas and information I could think of for a science fiction/fantasy environment.

A vivid, evocative YA lesbian romance about how the universe is full of second chances. Ryann Bird dreams of traveling across the stars. But a career in space isn’t an option for a girl who lives in a trailer park on the “wrong” side of town. So Ryann becomes her circumstances and settles for acting out and skipping school to hang out with her delinquent friends. One day she meets Alexandria: a furious loner who spurns Ryann’s offer of friendship. After a horrific accident leaves Alexandria with a broken arm, the girls are brought together despite themselves—and Ryann learns her secret: Alexandria’s mother is an astronaut who volunteered for a one-way trip to the edge of the solar system. Every night without fail, Alexandria waits to catch radio signals from her mother. And now it’s up to Ryann to lift her onto the roof day after day until the silence between them grows into friendship, and eventually something more. The Weight of the Stars is the new LGBT young adult romance from K. Ancrum, written with the same style of short, micro-fiction chapters and immediacy that garnered acclaim for her debut, The Wicker King. An Imprint Book PRAISE FOR THE WICKER KING: “Ancrum delves into the blurry space between reality and madness.
