“Many worlds, vanishing doors, mind-cracking magic: I clung to each page, searching for answers. This is one of the most unique works of fiction I’ve ever read!” —Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author
“Each page dazzles with things to be discovered: a mansion of priceless artifacts, a secret journal, a tantalizing quest through strange and beautiful places, and a love story that spans time, worlds, and magic. I couldn’t put it down.”—Peng Shepherd, critically acclaimed author of The Book of M
“The Ten Thousand Doors of January healed hurts I didn’t even know I had. An unbearably beautiful story about growing up, and everything we fight to keep along the way.” —Amal El-Mohtar, Hugo Award-winning author
“A gorgeous, aching love letter to stories, storytellers and the doors they lead us through…absolutely enchanting.” —Christina Henry, national bestselling author of Lost Boys and Alice
“A gorgeously written story of love and longing, of what it means to lose your place in the world, and then have the courage to find it again. This book is a door I’m glad to have opened.” —Kat Howard, author of An Unkindness of Magicians
“To open this book is to open a Door to a brand new world that you’ll never want to leave. With the masterful prose of a true Wordworker, Harrow has created a richly imagined, multi-layered narrative full of wonder, sorrow, and strength.” —Jordanna Max Brodsky, author of The Immortals
“All the magic you once knew but have almost forgotten waits in these pages for you to discover again. It’s a deeply satisfying pleasure to read, and lingers in your heart afterward. I loved it!” —Melissa Caruso, author of The Tethered Mage
