For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results. That's where the ATI Management Bureau steps in, an organization tasked with protecting the world from fairy tales, even while most of their agents are struggling to keep their own fantastic archetypes from taking over their lives. In the real world, no one gets a happily ever after.

A secret branch of government protects citizens from an unbelievable threat. No, not aliens. Fairy tales. Agent Henry Marchen is a Snow-White-in-waiting. And it just gets weirder from there.

Did this book suffer from being serialized and too haphazard? Yes. Was this a bit plotholey? Yes. Do I prefer Kowal more podcasting than narrating? Yes. Is that going to stop me buying the next one as soon as I post this review? Absolutely not. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Great work! And sometimes it's fun to just enjoy a book for what it is, instead of dissing it for what it isn't! 😂 3y
ozma.of.oz @TheAromaofBooks I really appreciate a book where I can end up turning off my brain while I‘m enjoying it. 3y
TheAromaofBooks Exactly. Everyone needs a little brain candy sometimes! 3y

A thoroughly enjoyable fairy tale - inspired urban fantasy. Great characters, malicious villains, and a frightening exploration of the impact of fairy tales loosed on an unsuspecting world. I really like the idea that reality as we know it is just the story that won -- at least temporarily, since all of the other stories are still fighting. #fairytale #urbanfantasy #seananmcguire

Lunchtime choices - resolution reading (non-fiction) or deconstructed fairytales? Once choice which one won out...

AmyG Bad Blood was good....a crazy story. 4y

NOTE: Tagged as first book as sequel not on litsy yet.

While the first one was a number of short stories that all linked together, this one was more like one complete story. I love the reimaging of the fairy tales while also reminding us of their dark past. It's isn't all Happily Ever After. And I love it 🖤🖤

This was both a paranormal procedural and a metatextual analysis of fairytales and reality as a kind of story. Which is just as weird and cool and Seanan-McGuire-worthy as it sounds.

In this X-Files meets Fables urban fantasy, the strained friendship dynamic between Henry and her sometimes nemesis, Sloan, moves the story along. I enjoy friendship stories fraught with conflict, and the relationship between these to characters definitely delivers. Bonus: This story and its sequel are full of references to the Aarne Thompson Index and other things that folklore geeks will eat up. #booktober #friendships

In this world the story can literally kill you. A goverment agency staffed by and tasked to protect the world from fairytale characters, Indexing mashes urban fantasy with fairytales in a mix I've yet to come across. An interesting new world to delve into.

Lillie Looks interesting. Is it a continuation of a series? 7y
ralexist It's the first in the series. It did start out life as a serialized story for Kindle Serials. The second one, Reflections, came out in January 2016. 7y
