As always, an outstanding book from one of my favorite authors. This one is heavy with character development for Amandine and Simon.
The more I learn about Amandine, the more violence I want to do to her. It was bad enough in the earlier books when she was presented as a neglectful mother, who blamed October for the loss of her human husband and didn't bat an eye when October ran away to live on the streets with other Changelings. But in this book Amandine is even more emotionally abusive, cruel and capricious.
Simon on the other hand, who was originally presented as a basic ''bad guy'' who we didn't have a lot of info on, is really fleshed out in this book. We learned a few books ago that he was trying to ''save'' October by turning her into a fish but I really got to like Simon in this book and felt sorry for him at times. The Road to Hell and all that.
The ending made me tear up and I hope Simon is able to complete his redemption by the end of this series.
We also get to see Pixies, and that a good turn is never forgotten.
I still love Mary Robinette Kowal as a narrator, her accents are the reason why I listen instead of read 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.
