Toby Daye - a half-human, half-fae changeling - has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a normal life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas. Now her liege, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, has asked Toby to go to the County of Tamed Lightning to make sure all is well with his niece. It seems like a simple assignment - until Toby discovers that someone has been murdering those closest to her and that if the killer isn't stopped, the niece may be the next victim.
Praise for the October Daye series: "The top of my urban-paranormal series list ! I am so invested in the worldbuilding and the characters.... The romance is real and awesome, but doesn't overshadow the adventure." -Felicia Day "I can't believe McGuire can come up with another adventure as riveting as this one . But then I say that after every book in this series." -SFRevu "McGuire has never lacked for courage in her writing.... The phenomenally inventive October Daye series showcases her narrative daring and ingenuity beautifully." - RT Reviews "Prepare to be dazzled.... Like the best of urban fantasy, with each reveal and mystery solved, Toby's world grows ever more enticing. As seductive as faerie itself , this is one series I could never give up." -All Things Urban Fantasy "These books are like watching half a season of your favorite television series all at once .... More than anything else, it's the fun of it all that's kept me returning to McGuire's books and to this series." -SF Signal "The plot is strong, the characterization is terrific, the tragedies hurt...and McGuire's usual beautiful writing and dark humor are present and accounted for. This has become one of my favorite urban fantasy series." -Fantasy Literature "An urban fantasy detective series featuring a resourceful female detective.... [October Daye] should appeal to fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files as well as the novels of Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs , and similar authors." - Library Journal
