Every Heart a Doorway

We've all read the fairy tales... a young child goes through a wardrobe or falls down a rabbit hole and shows up somewhere else. Seanan McGuire asks the question: what comes next? How does this incredibly diverse group used to living in magical worlds cope with being forced back into the mundane one? And then, of course, people start dying. With McGuire's signature brilliant worldbuilding and beautiful writing, this might be my new favorite book.
