Publisher's Summary

October “Toby” Daye is finally doing all right. She’s settling into her new role as the Countess of Goldengreen; she’s actually dating again; she’s even agreed to take on Quentin as her official squire. Life is looking up all around - and that inevitably means it’s time for things to take a turn for the worse.
Someone has kidnapped the sons of Duchess Dianda Lorden, regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist. To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must not only find the missing boys, but also prove that the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. She’ll need all her tricks and the help of all her allies if she wants to make it through this in one piece.
Toby’s search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves, and her deadline is firm: she must find the boys in three days’ time, or all of the Mists will pay the price. But someone is determined to stop her - and whoever it is isn’t playing by Oberon’s Laws....
As the battle grows more and more personal, one thing is chillingly clear. When Faerie goes to war, not everyone will walk away.

The best October Daye book so far

Funny glorious and tragic, Seanan Mcguire is improving with every book (and they didn't start out too bad either).

Toby is a hero in every sense of the word and her friends are wonderful characters with a great deal of depth.

Love October Daye novels!

As usual, Seanan McGuire has come through once again. Wonderful story line, great narration, which to me will make or break a book, and really glad to think that the King of Cats is gonna have a chance with Toby...
I would have given this book a 5 star rating, but felt that Toby's character needs a bit of censoring in this one. I had always enjoyed how the author conveyed the thoughts of her characters without going through the gammet of the usual foul language. This was the only downside in the story. Instead of the inventive way she had always used before, I was not well pleased to have to listen to the 'F' word so often.
