Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of September 2019: Often it’s not the ingredients that make the difference in the final product but the storyteller who wields them. Alix E. Harrow’s The Ten Thousand Doors of January includes book ingredients we’ve seen many times before: a girl discovering her true identity, a faithful animal companion, a missing parent, a Very Evil Person, and a book of power. But Harrow takes this basic recipe for a coming-of-age adventure and bakes in an emotional and heroic resonance that thrums deep in the reader’s belly. January Scaller is left with her father’s patron on an expansive Vermont estate, while her father travels the world searching for interesting relics in the early 1900s. One such relic is a book titled The Ten Thousand Doors, which tells of Doors between worlds. January knows the book must be true, because she once saw such a Door. When her father goes missing, January decides to leave her cosseted existence to discover his fate. Rejecting comfort in order to grow into one’s strengths is a theme that echoes throughout the novel. “I didn’t want to be safe, I suppose. I wanted to be dangerous, to find my own power and write it on the world,” one character explains to January. As she travels to new countries through new Doors, January learns how to be audacious, to write her power on the world, and to live the wild, exuberant life that her sheltered upbringing had denied her. Those who keep Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy or Katherine Arden’s Winternight novels on their keep shelf might want to add The Ten Thousand Doors of January in its own spot right beside them—a mighty reminder that heroism, done properly, should be dangerous indeed. —Adrian Liang, Amazon Book Review

From School Library Journal

In January Scaller's world, there are Doors that open to other worlds. You just need to know to look for them. Harrow's historical fantasy tackles familial loss and estrangement, as well as class and race relations in the early 20th century. The narrative follows January from childhood to adolescence. VERDICT Harrow's sprawling tale is an ode to the power of storytelling to heal wounds.—Elliot Riley, Deerfield Academy, MA
