This is a great read! Fantastic addition to the genre--October Daye is a different kind of protagonist and her world is quite unique!

I thought I had this book already, because the description noted was for Book 2, A Local Habitation, in which Toby investigates January's problems in ..Show More »the Country of Tamed Lightening. This is Book 3, An Artificial Night. Correct description: Toby is dismayed to encounter her frighteningly upbeat Fetch, May Daye, a magical doppelgänger heralding her imminent demise. Hot on its heels comes the discovery that Blind Michael, lord of the Wild Hunt, has kidnapped a number of fae and human children--including several whom Toby considers family--to replenish his riders. Enjoyable addition to the series.
The story is an enjoyable example of the recent fad in urban fantasy. Although in the first book I had a hard time getting used to the voice actor, I ..Show More »feel that she had gotten more comfortable with the characters and their voices in each book.
My only complaint about the story would have to be that everyone in Fairy seems so immature. Blaming Toby because she was there instead of the person who actually manipulated the events or the person who pulled the trigger so to speak.

With a name like Seanan McGuire I'm wondering if this author is recounting stories learned at her Grannie's knee :) The folklore is well researched and has such an air of authenticity that I can get totally involved in this world. Great characters!
This is the 6th book and doesn't disappoint. When this book came out I started over again at book 1 and had a total October Daye marathon. I'm so bummed to have come to the end of the available books! I'm fairly certain that there will be a book #7 although this one had a nice happy ending, there are lots of story lines left to explore. Mary Robinette Kowal is absolutely fabulous, does a great Irish accent when called for. I can tell a great narrator because after about 2 weeks of almost non-stop listening I'm not totally sick of her voice.
If you've been listening to this series don't hesitate to grab this one. If you are new to this series, stop and get book 1 (Rosemary & Rue). These books could be stand alone but much more enjoyable to listen in order.
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..Show More » immediately from the first chapter. The characters were well developed and elicited concern and compassion from the reader.
