Yep, you were right Steven!
Alright, if you (like me) didn't care for the first few books in the October Daye series, but didn't hate them, either? Ok. Then maybe you should give the series another chance.
Especially if you're looking for a new urban fantasy series to get into, because this one seems to be heading somewhere cool & fun!


Or at least it looks that way to me.

Oh, and there's a pretty BIG reveal about who/what October is in this book!
No. I won't be spoiling anything, but it looks li

A weekly Urban Fantasy buddy read with the Fae creatures at BB&B!!!

Book 4 of the October Daye series and Seanan McGuire has completely dug her claws into my heart and mind! To say it was unexpected would be an understatement. After all, I only read Urban Fantasy for the creativity and magical experience they bring me, without having my emotions too engaged and not much of me getting invested in the development of the characters. I can count on a fun, entertaining, and actionny ri

October Daye reminds me of that friend whom I liked a great deal, but who was a disaster waiting to happen. Make a shopping date, and she'd show up 45 minutes late and then discover she lost her credit card at the first store. We'd have some commotion looking for it, involve two or three innocent bystanders, run back and search the car, call home and convince someone to search her house until they found it, and then after much quibbling, she'd agree to borrow some money so we could go ahead and ...more
4.5 The other one was a bit more fun, but I still absolutely loved it!

With every story, I fall more and more in love with the characters. And gah, I can't wait to see them fall in love with each other! You know who I mean, right? October and Tybalt, of course!

Luckily, we see more of them this time. Not as much as I'd like, but we're getting there!

4.5 stars. Well this series has definitely picked up! I was very underwhelmed by the last book, but this one has definitely made up for it. As we get more and more information about Toby's heritage, the tale becomes more and more intriguing. I'm loving the slow burn between Tybalt and Toby ( although some one please tell me why she can't let go of Connor who seems kind but a gormless wet fish compared to Tybalt).
I don't normally read books in a series back to back. I prefer to dwell on the story
The Flooze

I had declared, after reading An Artificial Night, that Toby Daye and I simply would not do. Though there was much about her I adored, though her friends were lovely, entertaining people, Toby and I just didn’t see eye-to-eye. And so I bid her a fond farewell, wishing her all the best with those who might appreciate her better.

Insistent friends pleaded with me to give her another chance. “No, no,” said I. “You can never go back on that sort of decision. It just leads to more disappoint
Wow, Seanan McGuire is a friggin' superstar. This series is quickly rising in the ranks of my favorite UF series. Book three was great, and so was this one, book four.

So pumped that there are quite a few more before I'm caught up and stuck in the "waiting for every new release" phase.
Best book so far in the October Daye series. Toby doesn’t get so physically beat up in this go-round, plus she actually has a coterie of friends, including women friends, who have her back. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are headed into Bechdel test territory, with other significant female characters who talk to Toby about significant subjects. This makes my heart happy.

I also got my wish, namely to learn more about Toby’s mother Amandine. Not everything, mind you, McGuire is portioning it out sl
All Things Urban Fantasy
From the first book, ROSEMARY AND RUE, it has felt like I jumped into the October Daye series “in media res.” Quickly swept away by action and character development, I had for the most part forgotten Toby’s mysterious past. LATE ECLIPSES not only brings it all back, but also explodes Toby’s own preconceived ideas about herself and her heritage. While not a cliff hanger, this book ends poised at the top of an arc, and I can’t wait to read where all of this forward momentum is going to take the se ...more

Dear Seanan McGuire (Part the Second, since Ali's is Part the First) Please never stop writing. I adore everything you write and can't wait until May for Deadline and October for One Salt Sea and do not know what I will then do when I have to wait an entire year for another Toby Daye book but will try not to whine and pout. Hey, I know! I will read InCryptid! Anyway, in the meantime, I wish you candy corn, cupcakes, large cats and pleasant, well-behaved, well-informed fans, all in appropriately ...more
