Things are starting to look up for October "Toby" Daye. She's training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling down…at least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit.
Toby's efforts to take the problem to the Queen of the Mists are met with harsh reprisals, leaving her under sentence of exile from her home and everyone she loves. Now Toby must find a way to reverse the Queen's decree, get the goblin fruit off the streets - and, oh, yes, save her own life, since more than a few of her problems have once again followed her home. And then there's the question of the Queen herself, who seems increasingly unlikely to have a valid claim to the throne….
To find the answers, October and her friends will have to travel from the legendary Library of Stars into the hidden depths of the Kingdom of the Mists - and they'll have to do it fast, because time is running out. In Faerie, some fates are worse than death.
October Daye is about to find out what they are.

"McGuire applies a hard-boiled mentality and a keen appreciation for mythology to a blend of politics, magic, and romance." (Publishers Weekly)
"The October Daye series is one of those delicious worlds that becomes more and more beloved with each visit…. I couldn't be happier." (All Things Urban Fantasy)
Being a big fan of Seanan McGuire, I waited none to patiently for this book to come out. I was not disappointed. The plot was excellent pulling you in immediately from the first chapter. The characters were well developed and elicited concern and compassion from the reader.
The narrator was excellent and greatly enhanced a very enjoyable read.
This is a series that must be read or listened to in order. There is drama and humor and a cast of characters that truly care about each other.
With every story you care more deeply about Toby and her friends.
A good voice for Toby, not so much for Tybalt.
Toby telling Tybalt she loves him.
I can't wait for the next installment. I was hoping we would see Toby get some honors at the end of this book.
Totally addicted! It's possible I might need Audible rehab.
This series is always a joy. This installment was no exception. Couldn't stop listening till it was done.
I got hooked on this series a couple of years ago and always look forward to the next book. The author writes intelligently. I love this series and the books she publishes under Mira Grant.
Another can't-stop-listening tale from Seanan McGuire! The depth of detail and intricacies of the story is just so great. I enjoy all of the characters!
The problem with starting a Seanan McGuire book is that then you are that much closer to finishing said book. I love Toby! She is such a well written character. She is a hero and an underdog at the same time, and she pulls off being an underdog without being a whiner. This book did not disappoint, one of the best in the series. I can't wait for the next one. Mary Robinette Kowal's voice for me always starts out a little weird, not quite what I think it should be but it grows on you and by the end I'm always surprised by how well I think her characters sound. Awesome book!!
