Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling October Daye faerie series

Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire

Things are slow, and October "Toby" Daye couldn't be happier about that. The elf-shot cure has been approved, Arden Windermere is settling into her position as Queen in the Mists, and Toby doesn't have anything demanding her attention except for wedding planning and spending time with her family.

Maybe she should have realized that it was too good to last.

When Toby's mother, Amandine, appears on her doorstep with a demand for help, refusing her seems like the right thing to do...until Amandine starts taking hostages, and everything changes. Now, Toby doesn't have a choice about whether or not she does as her mother asks. Not with Jazz and Tybalt's lives hanging in the balance. But who could possibly help her find a pureblood she's never met, one who's been missing for over 100 years?

Enter Simon Torquill, elf-shot enemy turned awakened, uneasy ally. Together, the two of them must try to solve one of the greatest mysteries in the Mists: what happened to Amandine's oldest daughter, August, who disappeared in 1906.

This is one missing person case Toby can't afford to get wrong.

    "wonderful!"

    Seanan McGuire is definitely my favorite writer and here once again she has produced a wonderful creation.

    SPOILERS POSSIBLE BELOW

    She sends October on a true quest. This time she is not just solving a mystery but is saving her true love. As she says near the end she does not find herself covered blood once. The story is different yet the same, though she relies on herself rather than her usual allies much more.

    A refreshing change while still being the October Date mystery I wanted and love.

    "October Daye BK 11-Great continuation"

    Excellent addition. October Daye series is one I wait for the newest episode to appear annually.

    October, being who she is, is off defending what is hers--her friends, her home, her family. By the light of a candle, with Toby's sidekick, Quentin, and Simon Torquill (of all the fae), awaken from elf-shot, are the threesome on the search for October's long lost sister August. Amandine, one of the last of the Firstborn, are holding Jazz and Tybalt's lives as hostage to convince October to do everything she can to get August back to her mother.

    As you can see--nothing much could go wrong here--easy---NOT!

    Great job as always to Mary Robinette Kowal, narrating. As soon as I hear your voice I know I'm back in October's world again. Applause to your proformance.

    "Read more like a novella"

    This story seems more like an explanation novel for more to be revealed or plot twists of the next book... like a transition book. It was ok. Perhaps I'll appreciate it more after the next book.

    "amazing as always... i might have cried"

    Never disappointed by Seanan. EVER. This installment was no exception. I did, however, need some tissues at one point... maybe two... ;-)

    "Interesting turn in the story"

    October Daye just can't seem to get a break. Now her mother has taken "notice" of her and not in a good way. Some of her arch enemies come back into the picture and she and Sylvester still have some healing to do. This book seemed a little less action oriented and more emotionally tumultus for October. I did not like this story quite as well as some of the others but I am always happy to learn more about October and her world. The next book is set up at the end but we are not left dangling.

    "Never fails to enthrall"

    Seanan and in turn Toby and the rest of her family never fails to enthrall. This latest installment continues to build on and pay off a wondrous world and depth of characters.

    "Love the series!"
    Any additional comments?

    I love the October Daye series but I was disappointed in this book. I had a hard time getting into the story and hate the Amandine character. I realize I'm probably supposed to but find her whiney and petulant on top of being hateful. I'm hoping the author does not dwell on her in the future. When I re-listen to the series I will be skipping this one.

    "On the edge of my seat with this newest book in the series."

    OMG's! This book had me ready to cry and grabbing my seat for half of the story. So sad we have to wait for the next in the series. I have listened to each book many times each and now will add this one as well. The narrator does a great job and I enjoy the accents and how easy it is to know who's speaking. Thank you for such an awesome book!

    "Poorest book yet in this series"

    Rehash of past adventures to ultimately add one new character, change an old character back into a villain and mostly to allow an author to present a rather uninteresting story. Skip this book while hoping for a better story next time.
