    Susan is embarking on her first real adventure, trading a quiet existence in the countryside for bustling London in order to find her father, even with only a few mysterious clues to guide her, as her mother can't—or won't—give further hints. Soon Susan finds herself drawn into London's mysterious Old World, a layer of the city filled with mythical creatures and powerful magic. Her unexpected guide, Merlin, is part of a special group of booksellers charged with keeping the peace between the realities. When it becomes clear that the magical realm has a sinister interest in Susan, she races to unravel the mystery of her parentage and find her place among the magic. Nix wastes no time getting to the action, throwing readers headlong into the splendid new world alongside the bewildered but determined heroine. It's an incredibly diverse, detailed, and occasionally terrifying universe, and while there are many familiar fantasy elements, Nix puts in enough twists to make it his own. A remarkable romp through a fantastical new world. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
