Seanan McGuire returns to her popular Wayward Children series with Down Among the Sticks and Bones - a truly stand-alone story suitable for adult and young adult listeners of urban fantasy, and the follow-up to the Alex Award-winning, Hugo and Nebula finalist, Tiptree Honor List Every Heart a Doorway.
Twin sisters Jack and Jill were 17 when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children.
This is the story of what happened first....
Jacqueline was her mother's perfect daughter - polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it's because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.
Jillian was her father's perfect daughter - adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tomboy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you've got.
They were five when they learned that grown-ups can't be trusted. They were 12 when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

Most authors shouldn't read their own books..

... Seanan McGuire is no exception. It was pretty boring and sometimes anoying to listen to her.

But I liked her writer more in this book than in the first one. Sadly most of the outline of the story was already known from the previous book, so it was nothing much new to discover. It read more like a two chapters from a book rather than a "real" book. I guess I am just not a fan of this novella format..
