In an absent dream by Seanan McGuire

Portal fantasy

I think this was my least favorite so far. It was good, but not as great as the other ones. I feel it was because I felt like I was missing the best parts.

She went to the goblin market
She came back
We never hear of the interesting things that happened. The ones that wounded her so deeply that she went home again.

She goes back
And home again
Again we are missing the interesting bits

And her best friend was toxic and the goblin market totally effed with Lundy. She did so much and then she got effed like that? Well fu back goblin market.

Still good, but yes the darkest and depressing one

This fourth entry and prequel tells the story of Lundy, a very serious young girl who would rather study and dream than become a respectable housewife and live up to the expectations of the world around her. As well she should.

When she finds a doorway to a world founded on logic and reason, riddles and lies, she thinks she's found her paradise. Alas, everything costs at the goblin market, and when her time there is drawing to a close, she makes the kind of bargain that never plays out well.


  1. I've only read a couple of her books but I liked the ones I did read.

  2. I haven't listened past the first one yet but it's a super intriguing world.

    1. I read the first one ages ago, and then it took long to get back. Might be the whole novella thing

  3. Oh yes it's the one I need to read too

  4. I keep seeing that people love this series. I may need to listen to it soon!

  5. Goblin market sounds interesting. Still haven't tried her books...

  6. I guess one day I will need to start this series!

  7. Boo to missing the interesting parts

  8. Sorry not as good - the book blurb says "prequel" maybe that's why it's not as good? I swear when an author goes back and writes the prequel, it's never as good.

    1. Well since they are all connected and not, then, who knows. They are all about kids who goes through doors, and this one went through a door,just earlier than the rest
