Summary from Goodreads: This fourth entry and prequel tells the story of Lundy, a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.

When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she's found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.



Review: This story blew me away. I always love this author and the stories that come from their mind, but this story had a little bit of a creepy mystery to it that really kept me on the edge of my seat. At first, you are rooting for the main character. you want her to run back to the doorway, but as time goes on, you really feel the heart string for her sister and you want her to stay. I found Lundy to be really selfish, but I could still see her point of view. She almost had an autistic sense around her, maybe because I am an mom of an autistic child. Great story. A must read!
