Changeling knight in the court of the Duke of Shadowed Hills, October Toby Daye has survived numerous challenges that would destroy fae and mortal alike.

Now Toby must take on a nightmarish new assignment. Someone is stealing both fae and mortal children - and all signs point to Blind Michael. When the young son of Toby's closest friends is snatched from their Northern California home and his sister falls into a coma-like state, the situation becomes way too personal. Toby has no choice but to track the villains down, even when there are only three magical roads by which to reach Blind Michael's realm - home of the legendary Wild Hunt - and no road may be taken more than once. If she cannot escape with all the children before the candle that guides and protects her burns away, Toby herself will fall prey to the Wild Hunt and Blind Michael's inescapable power.

And it doesn't bode well for the success of her mission that her own personal Fetch, May Daye - the harbinger of Toby's own death - has suddenly turned up on her doorstep....

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sabrina Selk | 2/2/2014

    " The best in the series so far, the first one didn't click for me, and the second had a weak plot. This one felt more cohesive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Raven | 2/1/2014

    " so fantastic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 1/20/2014

    " I originally gave this 4 stars, but after thinking about it I had to change it to 3 stars. Don't get me wrong: if you like the first two books, I would still recommend this one to you. I just felt that this one was not as good as the first two. I'm going to continue with the series, because I do like the characters and the world that has been built. I just hope that some of the things that bug me about October are resolved in future installments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toni ~married to a hunk~ | 1/8/2014

    " I am loving this series more every time I read another one. I am totally hooked!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brianna | 1/4/2014

    " another awesome book in an awesome series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wonderbunny | 12/31/2013

    " So as I've thought about this book... I sort of loved it. I don't know if it quite five stars but close to it. My one complaint was near the end and I didn't like the jump in time. It felt sort of rushed and then the events right after weren't as vivid as previous parts in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 12/28/2013

    " Accidentally read the whole thing in one fell swoop; definitely engaging. I think this series is getting stronger over time as the overarching plot has space to develop and I liked the spin on the traditional faerie narrative in this one. I also appreciated the way the characters don't get off scot free from consequences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 kate | 12/2/2013

    " Despite not liking it as much as Rosemary and Rue, I am attached to the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roxie | 9/11/2013

    " This series keeps going strong. This was my favorite so far. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Devaeriel | 5/18/2013

    " my least favourite of all the books but such a wonderful car chase with May driver "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 KJ | 8/13/2012

    " A great improvement over the prior books in the series. Toby is starting to figure out some things about herself and the world, and also the mysteries in this book were deeper with a more satisfying payoff. Thumbs way, way up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chloe | 2/23/2012

    " A bit of a departure from the first two books, much more of a classic questy sort of fantasy as opposed to a mystery. A wonderful blending of fairy tale elements (the Babylon rhyme, the law of three) with Seanan McGuire's urban fantasy, and beautiful prose, as always. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 R. VanKirk | 7/11/2011

    " Sympathetic characters, interesting world, meandering plot and ultimately a heroine whose main characteristic is her tendency to continuously throw herself into hopeless situations where death is certain unless she gets lucky. Which she does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Jo | 6/8/2011

    " I really love seeing how different authors portray the Hunt. This book is fantastic! Glad to see there's another one coming out in this series, too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/17/2011

    " I was riveted by this book, could barely put it down. I think the author really stepped up the series here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leticia | 5/13/2011

    " This is a great new series! I can't get enough. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 4/1/2011

    " Slow at the beginning but builds to a great peak in story telling and brings you back down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flitterkit | 3/7/2011

    " I may have liked this one best of all, got totally engrossed in the story and couldn't put it down. "

    " This one might be my favorite of them all so far. Nerdnerdnerd. "
