Come Tumbling Down, Wayward #5 by Seanan McGuire

Come Tumbling Down - Seanan McGuire

As much as I felt I was done with Jack and Jill, this sequel to 'Down Among the Sticks and Stones' was well-told and full of everything I've come to expect from a 'Wayward' book.

 

Christopher is brooding in his room when lightning begins striking in his room. The noise draws the attention of the lovelorn Cora and they witness an oak and iron door appear. This is not their door, but Jack and Jill's come again. A large, mute girl carries a prone figure in a lacy gown through the door and into the room. It's Jack, and she's come to the school asking for help.

 

As Eleanor has warned them, quests are a hard habit to break, and knowing the risks of such a dangerous world as the Moors, Christopher, Cora, Sumi and Kade accompany Jack and Alexis back there.

 

Cora and Sumi's characters are explored more thoroughly here, which was nice. I'll welcome another story about these children any day.
