Things are starting to look up for October "Toby" Daye. She's training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling down...at least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit.Toby's efforts to take the problem to the Queen of the Mists are met with harsh reprisals, leaving her under sentence of exile from her home and everyone she loves. Now Toby must find a way to reverse the Queens decree, get the goblin fruit off the streets--and, oh, yes, save her own life, since more than a few of her problems have once again followed her home. And then there's the question of the Queen herself, who seems increasingly unlikely to have a valid claim to the throne...To find the answers, October and her friends will have to travel from the legendary Library of Stars into the hidden depths of the Kingdom of the Mists--and they'll have to do it fast, because time is running out. In faerie, some fates are worse than death.October Daye is about to find out what they are.… (mais)

This remains one of the best fantasy series out there--without any qualification on whattype of fantasy. The integration of faery into our world is done flawlessly.

I am on my knees in gratitude to Seanan McGuire for not including cliffhangers (she seems to trust her writing enough to know we'll be back for more) and no stupid love-triangle. Thank you!

I look forward to more of anything this woman writes. You should as well.

Really more like 3.5 stars. I was really into the main plot, which was all politics and intrigue, but I found everything about the Goblin Fruit addiction thing annoying. Yes, yes, I know, need some way to add pressure and tension.... I think I prefer the interpersonal tension of the previous book, though. ( )

Seanan McGuire never fails to delight me with her unique blend of wry humour, urban fantasy, faerie legend, and memorable characters. I feel that the Toby series goes from strength to strength and I feel genuinely privileged to be making this journey both with her and with Seanan.

I may be biased because I've known Seanan online since before the Toby series was picked up for publication, but I truly do feel that her books are a cut above the rest and they will always have a special place on my shelves.

Chimes at Midnight particularly delighted me. To quote myself from the comments on Seanan's blog: 'I'd post about the bits I loved but as usual there were too many. But Labyrinth references, and the Cu Sidhe, and Mags, and I always love Danny, and I always love the Luidaeg (even if I can pronounce Luidaeg but not spell it without checking), and the fireflies, and Toby and Tybalt ( )

Toby finds that someone is selling Goblin Fruit to Changelings and ordinary humans and has to find a way to stop it and it's deadly results when the Full Fae queen dismisses it as a trivial problem beneath her notice. After all Goblin Fruit is a enjoyable drug for full fae and not addictive.
So Toby does what she always does, finds a way through the problem using blood and brute force and cunning. She is what faerie have made her and they have to live with the consequences! ( )

These books are easy to read and so much fun. They’re the kind of books that you just really don’t want to put down. Toby is a great character, and this is one of the hardest books on her, as she goes through most of it in horrible pain and addicted to Goblin Fruit. It's just a great book and another good addition to the saga. ( )
