Things are not going well for October Daye. Owing to her mother's latest actions, Toby's family is cracking: her sister's girlfriend Jazz doesn't sleep, and her beloved Tybalt has withdrawn from her. Toby needs to do something, but what happens next is not what she needs. Her ex-boyfriend and his new wife show up on her doorstep with an accusation: daughter Gillian has been kidnapped and they hold Toby responsible. While it's obvious that Toby will investigate, it will take all of her nerve and love to get through it, for the Faerie are involved and secrets are being revealed. Toby must find Gillian before time runs out or the cost may be too much for everyone involved. Included in this volume is McGuire's novella "Suffer a Sea-Change," which tells the final sequence of events from the point of view of another important character.
VERDICT McGuire's latest tale of the changeling knight (after The Brightest Fell) weaves myriad storylines, paving a course to the forthcoming The Unkindest Tide. Urban fantasy enthusiasts should find this a must-read series, brimming with masterly characters, setting, and plots.
