All Toby was planning was dinner with Tybalt which was interrupted by finding out that in order to marry properly she had to have her legal father there. Simon, who has forgotten all his improvements and most of his life. For the sake of her future she has to find him and soon, but of course he's back in the clutches of the one woman who had corrupted him. And things are very very complicated.
There's also the matter of Officer Thornton and Toby does something almost unforgivable without explaining herself. That's going to cause issues later. ( )

Another solid entry in the October Daye series. Toby has to go on a quest to get rid of a potential obstacle to her marrying Tybalt. May, Quentin, and Spike accompany her. They get help from unexpected places. We learn a lot more about fae marriage and inheritance customs.

This is one of the queerest books in the series. That said, i wish that people in relationships had more time together, instead of being separated due to plot. ( )

Review to come. The novella at the end sheds some light on people’s actions in the main part of the book.

This book wraps up some long-standing threads and does go back to some earlier books. The wedding planning for Toby and Tybalt nuptials start the book and propel Toby to follow a piece of Fae Law that could give her issues if she doesn’t know about it. What it does do is set Toby on a new quest. I don’t want to even hint at what happens but it is great book for fans that have enjoyed the previous ones. Is it the best book to start, no since there is a lot going on but there is enough info weaved through the story that a new reader would not be lost. I really enjoyed the ending and the novella at the end of the book gives more depth to an event that happens in the very last part of the book.

I really love this series. In this latest episode, lots of story lines get finalized and tied off, which is always satisfying. And some great big new story lines were started.

Definitely not a stand alone book, but a really good addition to the series. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though I have some issues with it. It is plain to see just why this series has gone on as long as it has. The characters are interesting, the action is exciting, and the world that it is set in is intriguing.

I cannot say that October (the main character) has grown all that much. October is still rashly rushing out into dangers unknown with sometimes calamitous results. This time, although the risks are dire, the results were terrific.

I suggest that if this book has piqued your curiosity and you are a first-time reader, you may want to start at the beginning. And this bit of advice brings me to the reason that I had an issue with this book. There are so many secondary and tertiary characters plus discussions of characters that we haven't seen since the beginning. I feel like I need some help in keeping all these people straight. Perhaps a brief synopsis of the characters at the beginning of the future books.

Another issue I had is that there seemed to be a lot of padding this time. But no matter, because not every book is going to hit the 100% mark for everyone all of the time!

As I said, I thoroughly enjoyed this edition of the series, and I am looking forward to more of them.
