Staff Reviews

This is a novel of urgent and aching beauty. It’s a story about coming of age, about triumph in the face of tragedy, and about the power of magic, love, and dreams—and holding on to those dreams even when the stately order of the world threatens to crush them beneath its grinding wheels. Alix Harrow is an incredible writer, and everything about this novel—from its fabulously drawn characters to its outstanding plotting and pacing to its gorgeous worldbuilding—sweeps you effortlessly into its story. This is a stunning and gorgeously written debut novel with a ferociously beating heart, and Harrow is an exceptional talent. I can’t wait to read whatever she writes next.

I was tricked into reading this book. From the description, I must have assumed it was a kids book. Well, I have never been so happy to be tricked in my life because it was SO GOOD. I don't even have words to describe it yet. If you like fantasy--good fantasy, which always grapples with the issues of our world, whether or not it is set here--this book is for you. I'm so sad it's over! I wish I hadn't read it, only so I could read it for the first time again. Also, this may be the worst book review I have ever written and I don't care because the important thing is the book. Read it.

Three paragraphs were all it took to pull me all the way into this intriguing portal fantasy. The entire book, Alix Harrow’s debut novel, lives up to the promise of its auspicious beginning. Set in the early 1900s, The Ten Thousand Doors of January transports the reader through secret magic openings to places of wonder and mystery. This is a book about books, a story about stories, a tale of courage, love, and family ties across time and space. Imaginative and enchanting!

“This is one of the most beautifully written pieces of magical fiction I’ve ever read. I was obsessed with the book within the first two pages. Take an unforgettable journey with January Scaller through doors of lost worlds and heart-wrenching love stories. This book shows just how much power a story can hold, especially with the right storyteller at the helm. I could re-read this book countless times and still find new treasures that speak to me!”
