Book Review: The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

September returns to Fairyland, where all is not well.


The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Feiwel & Friends, 2012, 272 pages



September has longed to return to Fairyland after her first adventure there. And when she finally does, she learns that its inhabitants have been losing their shadows - and their magic - to the world of Fairyland Below. This underworld has a new ruler: Halloween, the Hollow Queen, who is September's shadow. And Halloween does not want to give Fairyland's shadows back.

Verdict: It doesn't disappoint. The Fairyland series is one I will preorder and buy in hardcover as long as they come out. I want these books to have existed when I was a child. My highest recommendation.

Also by Catherynne M. Valente: My reviews of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, The Habitation of the Blessed, and Silently and Very Fast.
