In the second book to the “exciting, inventive, and brilliantly plotted” (Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author) Borderline, Millie unwillingly returns to the Arcadia Project when an impossible and deadly situation pulls her back in. Four months ago, Millie left the Arcadia Project after losing her partner Teo to the lethal magic of an Unseelie fey countess. Now, in a final visit to the scene of the crime, Millie and her former boss Caryl encounter Teo’s tormented ghost. But there’s one problem: according to Caryl, ghosts don’t exist. Millie has a new life, a stressful job, and no time to get pulled back into the Project, but she agrees to tell her side of the ghost story to the agents from the Project’s National Headquarters. During her visit though, tragedy strikes when one of the agents is gruesomely murdered in a way only Caryl could have achieved. Millie knows Caryl is innocent, but the only way to save her from the Project’s severe, off-the-books justice is to find the mysterious culprits that can only be seen when they want to be seen. Millie must solve the mystery not only to save Caryl, but also to foil an insidious, arcane terrorist plot that would leave two worlds in ruins.

Faaaaaabulous sequel that has me salivating for final book. So moved by our heroine - her struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder has hit me so intensely but also reassured me.

I'm really surprised that I didn't read any books longer than ACOWAR, and I can't believe that Phantom Pains was my least popular book--the Arcadia Project series is fantastic! I find the "least popular book" stat to be the most interesting one to check out on everybody's year in review, it's always surprising!

I am obsessed with these books. An original take on urban fantasy with an achingly real female lead navigating borderline personality disorder, two prosthetic legs, and the fast approaching destruction of the magical world.

This sequel is even better than the first one! The story is so interesting and the main character (and supporting characters) continued discussion of mental illness and physical disability are really interesting and feel very real. While this book is full of magic, there are no magic fixes.

Trying to read this book and sip some milk tea (naicha) that my 6yo's classmate's grandmother made for me (very strong and sweet!). The boys are busy drawing in the Father's Day cards for their grandfathers and their dad.

RaimeyGallant Ah! Thank you for the reminder. 2y
moranadatter Ooh! How is it? I loved Borderline! 2y

HKGirl Also love that T-rex card 😎 Haven't read the book though, so don't know about that. 2y
RealLifeReading @moranadatter it's great! It took me a while to get into but I think that may have been more of my frame of mind etc. Also there is a manticore! 2y

About a quarter through and so far, this one is just as good as the first one. And this is basically my plan for the next few hours. Woo!

My unruly #TBR. Charlie Chaplin playing it cool. Waiting to be matched with my #SummerSantaGoesPostal partner. Oh, and if you've been matched with me & are feeling stressed? Don't be! 😎I don't own a lot of books (library FTW!) and my Litsy TBR stack contains unread & unowned books only. So relax, have fun & send me something you love! 😍📚🦑

TobeyTheScavengerMonk A reminder that I really need to make Barsk happen at some point. 2y

I'd have a better library haul post if the library didn't misplace my interlibrary loans. Maybe they'll show up someday.

Great followup to Borderline! I love the world-building/merging, and the main character. I hope Baker continues the series!

Another day at home to take care of a sick Little, and my brain is toast from lack of sleep so I'm doing my favorite thing (I'm sure you know what that is!).

p.s. I'm loving this second installment in Mishell Baker's Arcadia Project series!! "Snappy, fast," just like the blurb says.

DivineDiana Feel better, little Litten! 2y
