If you loved The Starless Sea you will want to read The Ten Thousand Doors of January! In fact it was recommend by Erin Morgenstern.
I’ve been in a bit of a reading rut so I downloaded a preview to my Kindle app to give it a try and before I even finished the first chapter I bought the book. I was enthralled by January Scaller from the first chapter.
I gasped at “the big reveal”, and was in tears reading the last chapter….
In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical 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: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.
Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.
