Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Truly excellent !!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Chimes at Midnight the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What about Mary Robinette Kowal’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was excellent and greatly enhanced a very enjoyable read.

    "One of the best Urban Fantasies out there"

    This remains one of the best fantasy series out there--without any qualification on what type of fantasy. The integration of faery into our world is done flawlessly.

    I am on my knees in gratitude to Seanan McGuire for not including cliffhangers (she seems to trust her writing enough to know we'll be back for more) and no stupid love-triangle. Thank you!

    I look forward to more of anything this woman writes. You should as well.

    Story
    "Best in the series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    With every story you care more deeply about Toby and her friends.


    What does Mary Robinette Kowal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good voice for Toby, not so much for Tybalt.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Toby telling Tybalt she loves him.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next installment. I was hoping we would see Toby get some honors at the end of this book.

    "Good Dayes"

    She's back after the last book in this sires I was worried but I am very pleased to say apart from an abrupt ending this was one of my favorites.
    Many secrets are answered in this book but then again that just made room for more questions.
    The humor that was missing from the last book is back I laughed out load ,Danny the troll Taxi driver is in fine form as is Tibolt who is always in fine form , our heroin continues to push her body and her mind too and beyond the limits,but Toby is always up for the challenge that's why we love her.

    "Great read by a fantastic author"

    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.

    Story
    "Yes!!!"

    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!!
