A Killing Frost

DAW. (October Daye, Bk. 14). Sept. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9780756415082. $27.
October “Toby” Daye is moving forward on her wedding to Tybalt, but her Faerie background once again throws a wrench in the works: Tradition demands that her father be invited to her wedding, and her father according to Faerie is Simon Torquill. Simon gave himself to free his daughter— and Toby’s half-sister—August. Now Toby must go on a quest to find a man she would rather leave behind, and reconcile their past with the future she wants. While the formula of the story stays the same, McGuire (Middlegame) always breaks new ground with further world- and ancillary character building that continues to captivate and expand readers’ views. With series favorites like the Luidaeg and Dianda and Patrick Lorden introducing intriguing details, Toby will have to make a decision about her future that will change everything.
VERDICT Now at Book 14 (after The Unkindest Tide), this popular series is definitely one to read, but newcomers will not be able to dive into this novel without the others. With exciting characters, heroic quests, and complicated family issues, Toby Daye is once again covered in blood and fighting for what is right.
