Catherynne Valente's world building and fantastic writing style is very much present in her second Fairyland book.
I really liked how she related events from the first book in the second one but still giving the second book its own life.
Again, the world that was created in this book was very appealing and over the top.
But I didn't enjoyed it as much as the first one. To me, the relationships that were built in The Girl Who Circumnavigated...were what made me like the story so much. Yes, the adventures and Fairyland were very exciting but I was very much invested in all the characters and their friendships. So I really missed that this time around. (I missed the green coat too :()
I very much liked the new characters, though. Aubergine, physickist dodo, and Belinda Cabbage were my favourites in this one.
I think The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There is a solid sequel and the writing continues to be refreshing and entertaining.
