    The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerie’s survival—but no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations.

    I am an unabashed fan of Seanan McGuire's "October Daye" series and I can't tell you how pleased I am at Mary Robinette Kowal's performance. Her reading really brings the book to life. I will be happy to listen to this audio book again and again.

    October “Toby” Daye is a changeling, the daughter of Amandine of the fae and a mortal man. Like her mother, she is gifted in blood magic, able to read what has happened to a person through a mere taste of blood. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, most changelings are second-class children of Faerie spending their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations. Toby is the only changeling who has earned knighthood, and she re-earns that position every day.

    Marci says: "What a fantastic book!"
    "For all audio book lovers!"
    Overall

    If you like urban fantasy noir, you can do no better than Seanan McGuire's "October Daye" series. If you like good audio reading, Mary Robinette Kowal is your lady. Her voice characterizations are spot on. You never have to wonder who is actually speaking now.

    Start with "Rosemary and Rue" and continue on from there.

    Changeling knight in the court of the Duke of Shadowed Hills, October “Toby” Daye has survived numerous challenges that would destroy fae and mortal alike. Now Toby must take on a nightmarish new assignment. Someone is stealing both fae and mortal children — and all signs point to Blind Michael. When the young son of Toby’s closest friends is snatched from their Northern California home and his sister falls into a coma-like state, the situation becomes way too personal.

    "Continued Excellence."
    Overall

    I fell in love with the Seanan McGuire / Mary Robinette Kowal pairing from the first book I listened to. Late Eclipses is a continuation of that awesome pairing. Mary's voice characterizations are just fabulous. I hope she reads my books some day.
