    more from this reviewer

    I was one of many who wished for a sequel to The Girl Who Circum

    I was one of many who wished for a sequel to The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. Though The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There was awesome in its own right, it's a lesser book than its predecessor.

    I can't quite put my finger on what it is that made me not like it as much as the first one. It's very good. I loved seeing her explore Fairyland-Below, reuniting with the shadows of her friends and being her generally awesome September-self. I enjoyed meeting the new characters and reuniting with old ones. The scene with the Goblin Market was, by far, my favorite.

    September's continual development as a character without losing any of her ambition or charm was awesome.

    But it missed some sparkle. Things that were drawn out and elaborated on in the first book - the magic, the secret of how September would escape - breezed by really quickly here. And the entire summary of who the prince of Fairyland-Below was sent me into a bit of a confused tizzy. (For the sake of the review, I'll keep this spoiler-free, but let's just say that it didn't make sense to me.)

    It is still a very, very good book. With September, it wouldn't be anything less. And I did devour it all in one shot.

    It just lost some of its magic.

    Fabulous sequel

    This was not quite the sequel I was expecting, and I think that's another tribute to Valente's style. It is darker and twistier than the first book, but as you approach the end, you appreciate how the format echoes September's journey. What I loved especially about this second novel is the sense of growth and change and confusion that comes with growing up. The way she talks about September's newly formed, ragingly strong teenaged heart resonated with me (as do so many of Valente's nuggets of wisdom strewn into the storyline). With that idea, we got more insight into September's life back home and her relationship with her parents. I really appreciate series that grow and change with their protagonists (much like Harry Potter got darker and more complex), instead of the same shiny adventure through Fairyland. I've read a LOT of fantasy, and it's nice to still be surprised :)
    As always, Valente's writing is magical. She really shows us that writing doesn't have to be dumbed down--it's far better to be able to go back a second or third or fourth time and understand more each time. Or as September would say--she "liked it best when words did not pretend to be simple but put on their full armor and rode out with colors flying."
    The tale is fun and full of whimsy, but has a breathtaking depth hidden underneath. She allows for complex, bittersweet endings--and yet I left the book enormously happy.

    For those buying the paperback, book 2 is larger than book 1 by an inch or so. So your books will NOT match.
