The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Author : Alix E. Harrow

Genre : Fantasy, Fiction

Alix Harrow has written a delightful and richly written fantasy tale set in the early 1900’s in Vermont. January Scaller is the ward of Mr. Cornelius Locke while her father Julian travels around the world finding ancient artifacts for Mr. Locke. She feels like the artifacts that fill his mansion: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place. Over the ten years of her father’s travels, she finds mysterious things that appear in a blue chest in the Pharaoh room that she thinks are from her father, including a book that tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure, and danger. Eventually January finds the origin of her own story within its pages and sets out to find her parents. The story flows with beautiful, organic metaphors: “His voice was lower and rougher than it had been before, as if he’s replaced his lungs with rusting iron bellows.” “The old man’s eyes remained narrowed and suspicious, a pair of damp blue marbles set in deep folds of flesh.”
