Welcome back to The Moors my fellow readers. Where lightning holds power and the dead come back to life. Jill has stolen Jacks’ body in her obsession to become a vampire. And the OCD Wolcott twin now stuck in Jill’s body is slowly going insane. Unless Jack can reclaim her body, she will die her final death. It’s time for the wayward children to embark on another quest.
Seanan McGuire has added even more diversity into her series by including characters that use their own form of ASL. I love how each new book adds to the inclusive cast of characters. Wayward Children encompasses people from all walks of life. And as you immerse yourself in this fantastical series, you also see how the various worlds accept people for who they are.
We all know the Moors to be dark and foreboding. But the cast of characters that find themselves questing in this Frankenstein inspired world are unique. How can you not laugh at Sumi’s nonsense logic in a logical world? And how about Cora’s innocent and wary attitude when approaching anything new? Combine that with Kade’s leadership and dedication, alongside Christopher's familiarity with the undead in his world of Mariposa. I couldn't help but laugh at their antics as they compared the Moors to their versions of weird versus normal.
Come Tumbling Down was another terrific addition to the Wayward Children series. I love the intense dark fantasy undertones, and the imagination that goes into each of these worlds. The ties of friendship or rivalry that bind all these children together are so craftily written. I never want this series to end.
