I am very impressed with the way McGuire mixes the complexities of developing relationships so seamlessly with the peril and action of October Daye's world. Toby has the familiar, established passion of Connor, a long, lost love who she can have at last, and the piquant possibilities of Tybalt, a familiar face that has taken new and lovely depths in the last few books. From the haunted halls of Toby's knowe to the magical geometry of an undersea kingdom, I was fascinated by the consistently complex and well-drawn world that McGuire has created. While the culmination of all of this action didn't hold any big surprises (and had a few contradictory moments), the last chapter of the book was a beautifully written, bittersweet hug of a moment between the reader and Toby. Every visit to Toby's world is a gift, a glimpse of magic, written in a way that speaks to a human heart, and grief, written with tenderness and a very human touch of resilience and hope, made the ending of this book especially sweet.
