“Never underestimate the power of a good story.” Good advice…especially when a story can kill you.For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected—perhaps infected is a better word—by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results.That's where the ATI Management Bureau steps in, an organization tasked with protecting the world from fairy tales, even while most of their agents are struggling to keep their own fantastic archetypes from taking over their lives. When you're dealing with storybook narratives in the real world, it doesn't matter if you're Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, or the Wicked Queen: no one gets a happily ever after.Indexing is New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire’s new urban fantasy where everything you thought you knew about fairy tales gets turned on its head.This book was initially released in episodes as a Kindle Serial. All episodes are now available for immediate download as a complete book. Learn more about Kindle Serials

In this urban fantasy, fairy tales can kill. A person can get caught up in their story and then the narrative will carry that person to the forgone conclusion.

4.0 Superior to the text version (something I thought I'd never say)
It could easily be argued that I've said enough (if not too much) about Indexing. So I'm not going to talk about the story, the writing, and so on, beyond this: not listening to this episodically like I read it, highlights strengths and weaknesses. For example, it's minor, but the way she has to re-...

4.0 Where “once upon a time” doesn’t lead to “happily ever after”
Fairy tales are real! And that’s not a good thing. Do we really want whole towns falling asleep for 100 years because a Sleeping Beauty’s story has gone active? In this book fairy tales are like a constantly mutating force of nature that’s trying to manifest in our “real” world, so of course there's...

3.5 In wich Sleeping Beauties are scarier than Wicked Stepsisters
Imagine if actual fairy tales characters lived among us: in fact imagine them a little like wild mushrooms sprouting everywhere and disrupting people's lives. You know what, comparing them to weeds would be more appropriate -_- So... imagine that you were living your own ordinary life, when sudden...
