This was an amazing addition to the October Daye series. I feel like this series just keeps getting better and better. These are hard books for me to review because I just love them so much and the storyline has gotten so involved.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was well done. Kowal does a great job with October’s voice, but some of the male voices sound unnatural and over characterized . She does do a great job conveying emotion and having different voices of all the characters.
All the story takes place in Queen Windermere’s castle and it is basically about the conclave convening to discuss the legalization of the cure for Elfshot. Of course nothing is simple...so when a King is killed and a Queen is Elfshot the High Queen and King ask October to figure out who is behind the hostilities.
Toby’s involvement in the investigation and her dubious status as a changeling means that both her and everyone around her becomes a target for the hostile forces lurking in the knowe.
All of our favorite characters are in this story. We spend a lot of time with Toby, Tibalt, and Quentin. I loved that the Luidaeg was in the story so much, she plays a major role throughout. I also loved that Megan, the oneiromancer, also played a large role in the story.
Things are changing drastically for Toby and the Luidaeg makes some rather large hints that Toby was “created” for a larger reason. This makes me curious to see what that reason is but also makes me nervous for Toby and her plans to marry and be happy.
Overall this was an amazing addition to the October Daye series. These books are absolutely spectacular and do a great job of blending faerie mythology with an urban fantasy paced story. I would highly recommend to urban fantasy fans or fans of mythology and faerie.

Not as much action , good overall but 2 characters voices seemed way different to me, that really threw me, as I loved Tibolds character and this seemed deeper and not as Him
