Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score. She was wrong. It's time to learn the truth.

A fabulous story
Any of Seanan's books. She is consistently outstanding.
Her voices have become like old friends. She makes listening like watching a movie, the characters just come alive.
October is in every season.
Get Seanan's books....now.
I can now do my work and listen too. Hearing a professional reader is the best--great way to pass time.
I have been waiting for this book 8. "Indexing" was excellently written but it kept me waiting for October. Great story that lets you see how the first born of Faery are up to their mischief again, but October will show them again. Great Story--can't wait for book 9.
Yes!! This series just keeps improving. It manages to stay fresh and not at all clichéd.
Spoilers! I can't say without giving it away!
Oh, goodness. I love her as Toby. She IS Toby. I do enjoy how she interprets everyone's favorite King of Cats, too.
Yes and Yes! I laughed, I cried, I sighed with relief and even let out a squeak of disbelief in a few places.
This installment answers a lot of questions, only to leave you asking a hundred more. Don't miss this book, or this series!
If you are a crazy Faye October Daye is your going to hunt you down.
Yes master I will love you and follow all your crazy demands as soon as I put you down like the rabid beast you are... What no I love you again wait no you must die. What do I love you or do I want to kill you I don't recall.
Follow and die or fight and live now.I don't know... That is all you are getting out of me I have been up all night with a story.
Would love to see more of this story and some spin offs. Like the sea witch. Get the feeling her story would make me laugh and cry.
Music Lover, readers
Another wonderful October Daye story, but the narration threw me off. I loved almost all the narration except issues but those made it a misery to listen to some of the time. I found the voice she used for Tybault to be dull, slow, flat and just plain odd. A flat affect...nothing sounded as if there were feelings behind his words. His nephew Raj vocals were unattractive and nasal. Now that he is a major character the voice really hurt the quality of the audio narration. The story is the usual fine quality.
A wonderful series that brings something new to the urban fantasy genre that has been declining in good new stories. Not only is the story fresh and new, the characters interesting and flawed but the world building is what makes this book great. The plot as well has built upon itself in a wonderful way that has only gotten better from book to book. The only problem I have is that Tobi is hell bent on being a changeling. Why? We've never heard about her human friends she hung out with during book one, she doesn't interact with humans at all, she's cut herself off with her human family, all of her friends are fae, and every time you think she is going to FINALLY go full fae she gets out of making a decision. The only reason that I can see so far is to not let her become too powerful, hang the possibility over our heads to add suspense, show the fae world that changelings are important too, and let her have "humanity" whatever that means.
All the great characters: the king of cats, October and Quentin take on a really nasty villain. It's nice to have an adult heroine who has adult relationships and responsibilities instead of another teenager hero with no life experience.
Snarky action adventure
Can't think of one close, but The Grimrose Path
Yes, and she was just as solid here
More aha moments and smirks
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who wasn't already a fan of the series. Without the context of the rest of October's story none of the vents in the story have much impact. This is pretty normal for a book this deep into the series, but this book ties more into previous events than others in the series.
Considering it's the 8th book in the series it was very jarring to hear Kowal change the pronunciation of some in world terms. There were also a number of errors in the performance, the wrong character's name being said, voices mixed up, etc. Seemed like this performance was done without benefit of an editor, or any particular desire to read the book.
I would not, since this book would make a pretty bad movie.
This book could badly use a rerecord, and an editor. If it didn't add so much to the series, I would say give it a pass. If you're already working through the series, just grit your teeth and try to ignore the errors in the performance.
