The strength of this fable for all ages lies its droll tone and witty moralising. It is also stuffed with extraordinary and indomitable female characters. Financial Times

'Catherynne Valente has, with a minimum of fuss, written one of the great young-adult fantasy diptychs since Lewis Carroll . . . A restless imaginative power unlike anything else in contemporary fiction . . . Valente is making new myths right now, before our eyes. Don't miss the show.' Lev Grossman, Time Magazine
It has been a long time since young September bid farewell to Fairyland, and she is excited to see it again; but upon her return she is shocked to find that her friends have been losing their shadows, and therefore their magic, to the kingdom of Fairyland-Below . . . It spells certain disaster and September won't stand for it. Determined to make amends, she travels down into the underworld where, among creatures of ice and moonlight, she encounters a face she recognizes all too well: Halloween, the Hollow Queen. Only then does September realize what she must do to save Fairyland from slipping into the mundane world forever.
