    DOWN AMONG THE STICKS AND BONES

    Book ID/图书代码: 02173017C00023

    English Summary/英文概要: Seanan McGuire returns to her popular Wayward Children series with Down Among the Sticks and Bones―a truly standalone story suitable for adult and young adult readers of urban fantasy, and the follow-up to the Alex, Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Award-winning, World Fantasy Award finalist, Tiptree Honor List book Every Heart a Doorway

    Twin sisters Jack and Jill were seventeen when they found their way home and were packed off to Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children.

    This is the story of what happened first…

    Jacqueline was her mother’s perfect daughter―polite and quiet, always dressed as a princess. If her mother was sometimes a little strict, it’s because crafting the perfect daughter takes discipline.

    Jillian was her father’s perfect daughter―adventurous, thrill-seeking, and a bit of a tom-boy. He really would have preferred a son, but you work with what you’ve got.

    They were five when they learned that grown-ups can’t be trusted.

    They were twelve when they walked down the impossible staircase and discovered that the pretense of love can never be enough to prepare you a life filled with magic in a land filled with mad scientists and death and choices.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 双胞胎姐妹Jack和Jill在十七岁时找到了回家的路,她们俩为了Eleanor West之家的任性的孩子们匆忙赶路。 这是故事的开头。。。 Jacqueline是妈妈的乖女儿,礼貌而又文静,总是打扮得像个公主。如果母亲曾有些严苛,那是因为为了打造一个完美自律完美的女儿。 Jillian是爸爸的好女儿,爱冒险,爱刺激,还有些假小子气。他真的期望上苍能给他个儿子,但往往事与愿违。 他们五岁时便知道大人的话不能作信。 他们十二岁时,当沿着虚幻般的楼梯走下时,发现爱的幌子永远不足以让你在充斥着疯狂科学家,死亡和抉择的生命中做好充分的准备。(Sandy)

    Awards/获奖情况:Review "McGuire has a miraculous talent for examining adolescent discontent, wedding the strange with the poignant, the fearsome with the fascinating." ―RT Book Reviews Top Pick, 4 1/2 stars

    “Beautifully crafted and smartly written, this fairy-tale novella is everything that speculative fiction readers look for: fantastical worlds, diverse characters, and prose that hits home with its emotional truths." ―Library Journal starred review

    "Exquisitely crafted, this is the rare companion novel that can stand alone." ―Booklist starred review.

    "Down Among the Sticks and Bones has the voice and rhythm of a fairy tale... It is vividly characterised, as so much of Seanan McGuire’s work is, and has the kind of prose that carries you along to find out what happens next." ―Locus

    "McGuire’s exquisitely written fairy tale is about the choices that can alter the course of a life forever, lost innocence, and what it is to love and be loved." ―Publishers Weekly starred review

    About the Author/作者介绍: 海安•麦克维尔是十月城市幻想和神秘生物系列小说的作者,她也有些其他的作品,包括独立和系列小说。她也写作类似《米拉•格兰特》的黑暗小说。

    海安住在加利福尼亚南部一座老旧的农庄里,养了几只猫,还收藏了许多可怕的娃娃,恐怖电影和书籍,似乎很容易着火呢。

    她曾获得2010年度约翰•W•坎贝尔奖的最佳新人奖,2013年她成为了第一个五度提名雨果奖的作家。

    Seanan McGuire is the author of the October Daye urban fantasy series, the InCryptid series, and several other works, both standalone and in trilogies. She also writes darker fiction as Mira Grant.

    Seanan lives in a creaky old farmhouse in Northern California, which she shares with her cats, a vast collection of creepy dolls, and horror movies, and sufficient books to qualify her as a fire hazard.

    She was the winner of the 2010 John W Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and in 2013 she became the first person ever to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot.
