Series: Wayward Children #6



It was good, like the rest of the series, but it felt like it missed some magic. Maybe cos we didn't visit the school at all?.

Regan goes through a door to a land of centaurs, kelpies, unicorns and more. A land that says a human is there to save or doom them.

But yes not a lot happens in a way, she meets some centaurs, she befriends them (I still wonder about male centaurs, like what do they do? Sit around and spend money?) And then she must save the land, and well, the door always comes back....

I liked it, but yes it did lack some magic and explanations. 

Regan loves, and is loved, though her school-friend situation has become complicated, of late.

When she suddenly finds herself thrust through a doorway that asks her to "Be Sure" before swallowing her whole, Regan must learn to live in a world filled with centaurs, kelpies, and other magical equines―a world that expects its human visitors to step up and be heroes.

But after embracing her time with the herd, Regan discovers that not all forms of heroism are equal, and not all quests are as they seem…


  1. Huh. I didn't realize this series was still happening. Maybe next book will be better?

  2. "I liked it, but yes it did lack some magic and explanations."
    Exactly! I also found that the side characters were weaker than the ones we met in other worlds (like the Goblin Market).

    1. It made me sad when I think of it, there should have been more

  3. I only read the first book. I don't know, I didn't really click with this series. I do hope you'll enjoy the other ones more.

    1. I did like the previous ones, not all though

  4. Glad to hear you enjoyed the story even if it didn't quite meet your expectations. :)

  5. This is a series I need to get on.

  6. I enjoyed this one as well
