Description

"For her to love me, she had to be willing to kill me. Anything else would show that her heart was untrue."

The struggle against not-so-charming storybook narratives isn't the only complicating factor in Henrietta "Henry" Marchen's life. As part of the ATI Management Bureau team protecting the world from fairy tales gone awry, she's juggling her unwanted new status as a Snow White, dealing with a potentially dangerous Pied Piper, and wrangling a most troublesome wicked stepsister - along with a budding relationship with Jeff, her teammate.

But when a twisted, vicious Cinderella breaks out of prison and wreaks havoc, things go from disenchanted to deadly. And once Henry realizes someone is trying to use her to destroy the world, her story becomes far from over - and this one might not have a happily ever after.

Indexing: Reflections is New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire's continuing new urban fantasy, where everything you thought you knew about fairy tales gets turned on its head.

Irritating narrator

The story is great and the narrator did a good job for the most part. Her narration of Sloan was so irritating that my skin was crawling. I'm actually listening now and it's infuriating me.

Why do her books have to end???

Honestly, I never want her books to end. The characters, the worlds, the storylines... And the narration, I could listen forever. I listen to Audio books every day and Seanan Mcguire's books are at the top of the list of books that captivate me. Mary's narration bring the books to life in a way that make the characters feel like friends. More, please?!

Fun Fantasy for Grown Ups Who Like Fairy Tales

I’ve decided that for me - a “5 Star” rating does not mean great literature or the best possible writing - it means I totally enjoyed the story, couldn’t stop listening, and interrupted a lot of my “normal” activity to finish the book- and once I got to the end I was happy with the ending and sorry at the same time to be out of the story. This book fits all those criteria.

I’m a fairy tale lover myself and the “Indexing” books are a great twist on what life would be like if fairy tales - the darker origins and not just the Disney versions- tried to take over the world. This is the 2nd book in what I hope is a continuing series. I liked this better than the first, but I’m not sure the world makes sense if you haven’t read the first book. The characters are quirky and continue to develop instead of remaining static. It’s a great complication to see what life is like for people who are meant to be part of a “fairy tale” but are trying to live their own lives and at the same time keep the world safe from evil queens.

Highly enjoyable fantasy and the reader does a great job as well.

Second in the series, still as great as the first!

Any additional comments?

Fairy Tales are real, and out to destroy the world. Not maliciously, just.. the Narrative wants to exist and spread.

Several prisoners have broken out of "Fairy tale prison" and want to help it - they want to change it, and help the Narrative take over the world in their own image.

Henry and her team don't want that. What they have to do to save the world puts them all in danger - but what's new? Except for the whole "might not wake up" part of dying.

I listened to the audiobook version of this book. I loved it. The first time I listened to it, I didn't like it so much. The narrator assigned Sloane a pissy Valley Girl accent, and it annoyed the crap out of me the first time. This time I was more used to it, and understood it more as an affectation on Sloane's part.

I loved how the narrator gave each of the characters a distinct voice, and even made it obvious when a character's.. well.. character had changed. (Henry into Snow White, Henry as narrator, Sloane as narrator, Adrianna as Henry, Henry as.. someone else, etc.). In a book where sometimes people aren't who they appear to be, this is an invaluable asset in a narrator!

I love this book - as you can see by the five stars I give it! I wish there was more of this series, but I understand both from a narrative point of view and from a publishing/writing point of view why there isn't. If Seanan McGuire ever writes more in this universe, I'll be on it faster than you can breathe - and faster than Jeff can kiss Henry!

Good book, but has problems

First, I didn't care for the voice performance at all. She falls out of character at several places and Sloane's voice creeps into Henri's dialogue at several points. It's a jarring contrast.

The story itself starts off strong and is on par with the first book of the series. However, it falls apart and feels a little deus ex machina during the climax.

More Twisted Fairy Tale Magic!

I fell in love with Indexing right away and this sequel was just as good. It has the perfect mix of magic and darkness. The characters are complex and interesting. I am happy that there are multiple strong female characters (one of which has to struggle with her "good girl" programming) and a transgender character who is not a stereotype and who is central to the plot. The idea of monomyths and competing narratives creates a dynamic setting. Some might argue that magic gets used to bail the characters out a little too easily, especially when preventing death or at the showdown at the end (or should I say snowdown?), but I thought that the rules of the world were consistent and it works more than not. Plus, it's just fun! The narrator also does a great job with all the voices. Sloan sounds like a petulant teen but that works with her character (whom I love). I am really hoping this will become a series! In fact, I think I want that enough to make a deal with a talking frog or a magic mirror. let's hope I don't encounter either of those anytime soon.

wonderful second tale

Wonderful second installment of what I hope is continuing series.

Bloody word minimum requiring dilution of a some point.

This book expands your conception of fairy tales. It makes you think, and wonder. It changes your view about fairy tales, and
not in a positive way. I did enjoy the book very much.

We need more!

Mimetic incursion in progress: estimated tale type 8888 ("The Evil Twin"). Status: AWESOME!

This second book was so good, I'm doing something I've never done before, to wit, reviewing a subsequent book in a series. I loved this book, and my only regret is that this is all there is in this universe.

So this story (well, collection of serials, but still) begins with the ultimate trope, The Evil Twin. Henri loses her body to the evil Adriana, and for almost a year, it appears nobody notices.

Two of the things I really loved about this book were one, getting Sloan's backstory (way cool!), and two, some Sloan POV stories. She is a most interesting character. I'd love to see more stories from her POV.

My one major gripe is that only Henri and Sloan really got their stories developed to any extent. I'd love to see Demi's backstory, or Jeff's, or any of the team, for that matter.

Mary Robinette Kowal did another outstanding job of narration.

What more can I say? This audiobook series is going on my list of "will definitely listen again, and again." Just please, Ms McGuire, write us more in this universe. Please! I'm begging you! :-)
