October Toby Daye is finally doing all right. She's settling into her new role as the Countess of Goldengreen; she's actually dating again; she's even agreed to take on Quentin as her official squire. Life is looking up all around - and that inevitably means it's time for things to take a turn for the worse.

Someone has kidnapped the sons of Duchess Dianda Lorden, regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist. To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must not only find the missing boys, but also prove that the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. She'll need all her tricks and the help of all her allies if she wants to make it through this in one piece.

Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves, and her deadline is firm: she must find the boys in three days' time, or all of the Mists will pay the price. But someone is determined to stop her - and whoever it is isn't playing by Oberon's Laws....

As the battle grows more and more personal, one thing is chillingly clear. When Faerie goes to war, not everyone will walk away.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/17/2014

    " An awesome addition to the series. So good! I absolutely love the world she's created, and the relationships between the characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 2/12/2014

    " This is definitely a series that gets better and better as you go a long. October and her friends are interesting and entertaining. The problems she is resolving are often similar but the story is always different. This one was a little more heartbreaking than the other books but still very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miriam | 2/12/2014

    " This is a story I really liked. I like that I was able to read this book without rereading the previous ones and without feeling lost, but also without those interminable digression to explain what happened before. I like how this character is growing, and I like how slowly all the problems find a more or less natural solution. I liked undersea, I liked that she is not power hungry, I really like the sea-witch also if I really have problem in my head putting a nineteen years old face on her, I keep imagining her as a old woman. So in my opinion, the author did a really good job on this book. "

    " I sobbed. Seanan McGuire is an amazing author, and this book is even better than the preceding four. It'll be a long wait till next September and Ashes Of Honor. "

    " I am really enjoying this series, happy with the characters and the pacing. Very enjoyable read, though not too sure how a book would stand on it's own, this has been one of my favorites. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/10/2013

    " Seanan McGuire never ceases to enthrall and captivate her readers with the tales of October Daye. I seriously am tapping my foot for next book! "

    " Toby is finally starting to work on some of her issues (I hate it when there is no growth for the narrator). Seanan is improving as a story teller. "

    " This is one of my favorite books in the October Daye series. Toby is finally starting to think things through instead of just reacting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslee | 4/14/2013

    " So awesome! Tears were flowing as usual. Toby's life always manages to bring me to tears at some point in every book. Love Seanan McGuire, she is one of the best authors out there! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ria | 10/18/2012

    " Another great entry in the Toby Daye series. As with the previous entry, I feel that the overall series arc developments are a little slower than I would perhaps like, but such fantastic ground work has been laid, I suspect the next novel will blow my mind. Or at least I hope it will :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aleksandra | 6/5/2012

    " Triangle with a predictable plot? Ugh. Why Mrs. McGuire? And Tybalt gets less macho every book. Boo boo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 2/14/2012

    " another one of my favorite books. I love the October Daye series. It never fails to keep me at the edge of my seat with its great story line and amazing characters. Can't wait to see what happens next for Toby and her gang. "
