I usually love Seanan McGuire - the InCryptids series is one of my all time favorites, and what I've read of October Daye I've liked. I loved the first book in her Wayward Children series, Every Heart a Doorway. Everything about Indexing should have worked for me - I liked the concept of the fairy...

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.

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-...

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?

I read this as it was going on, and I'm not sure I'm a fan of the serial format. Also, since it is a short story format with an over arching story, I think it was weaker. I don't think short stories are McGuire's strong suit.

Loved this! I really want a 4.5 star, no a 6 star scale. There's definitely two tiers of I loved this and will read again books that don't make the "run around squeeing" 5 star category.So, on a 6 star scale this is a 5 star book and I really hope Seanan plays more in this universe.
