Home Catherynne M. Valente The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There. There’s a Revel tonight, and she’s hardly got a dress picked out, let alone balloons enough for all. What’s a Revel? Ell smiled, and it was quite unlike any other smile September had seen on Ell’s dear, sweet face. A Wyvern’s body is different from the body of a young girl in several major respects. First, it has wings, which most young girls do not (there are exceptions). Second, it has a very long, thick tail, which some young girls may have, but those who find themselves so lucky keep them well hidden.
I loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, but I love this one even more. The Revels don't actually happen until the very end. Sorry for the spoilers. The rest of the book is sheer adventure. September has grown up in this book, and as a result everything here is more complex and grey. Her chief foe in this book, Halloween the Hollow Queen, is her own shadow – cut from her body and living the life she never dared to. As September descends into Fairyland Below, populated by devils and dragons and all the lost shadows of Fairyland, she confronts the hidden, secret selves of her best friends, her enemies, and herself.
The only trouble was, precious few books about swashbuckling folk have much to say on the subject of how to behave when one gets home. September had changed profoundly from a girl who desperately wanted such things to be real to one who knew they were real. Such a change is less like getting a new haircut than getting a new head. It did not particularly improve her school life.
Readers will also welcome back good friends Ell, the Wyverary, and the boy Saturday. But in Fairyland Below, even the best of friends aren't always what they seem.
