Guess Who! of time in So if you want to be entertained but also like some real humanity with your Fae and magic this series is for you No age limit no unnecessary cruelty just a storyf a changeling who wants to be a real person Have a great reading time and may you be blessed with good books nly 375I 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 n that sort Papi's Gift of decision It just leads to disappointment But perhaps every now and again you can go back and the result will be surprising and fresh allf the good things you remembered with very little f the bad to drag it all down And so it went with Toby and I Late Eclipses focuses n Toby and her past than any Flash Fiction Forward: 80 Very Short Stories of the previous books and perhaps therein lies the difference Yes there are mysterious illnesses to cure foes to battle and political nastiness to defend against But at the centerf it all is the uestion グライネリエ 1 [Grainerie 1] of who Toby is and who she wants to be This time around plot devices demand that she become awaref her limitations that she think before she acts sometimes and the result is a balanced hero She spends a fair amount f time dashing back and forth as per her usual but her investigation follows a logical path a relief because logic and Toby haven t always been bosom buds She also accepts that running around alone ften does harm than good With friends and allies by her side Toby comes closer to performing an efficient investigation than she ever has before Match this newfound sensible nature with Toby s helpful and caring personality and her likability spikes dramatically Add in the humorous touches that McGuire is already adept at and the result is an enjoyable installment Imagine I nly wanted to shake Toby nce maybe twice throughout the whole The First Socialist Society: A History of the Soviet Union from Within of the book I no longer paused every chapter to shake my head and think Oh Toby dear Get a brain already Instead I was wrapped up in the story and curious how everything was going to panut I ll admit there were some The Coming Revolution in Youth Ministry obvious details but there were so manyther tidbits flying around that I found myself forgiving a few clue by foursAlongside Toby s improvements we have freuent stolen moments with the ever desirable Tybalt he File Under: Arson of the tight leather pants Note to Curran fans know that this enigmatic cait sidhe is taking a page straight from the Beast Lord s handbook Whyh why do we find this practically feral sort Wicked Sense of possessiveness attractive Damned if I know I just wantf it Though the revelation f Tybalt and Toby s mutual attraction is taking its time to unfurl the glimpses McGuire provides are delicious and tantalizing enough to carry us through to the next volumeWith this novel I m coming to a greater appreciation f the author s humor Sometimes slapstick Powerless Against You often wry and always with a hintf self deprecation McGuire creates scenes and drops ne liners that command a snort r chuckle It s these moments that endear the characters to me and make me want to revisit them Pacing and plot hindered my enjoyment before but Late Eclipses has given me newfound hope that maybe just maybe Toby and I can work ut after all Yes If you ve lost your mind I ll kill you Just me and no ne else I ll take you to the place that no ne leaves and I ll take you there alone Goodness isn t it just romantic TybaltIn Late Eclipses troubles find their way to October Daye and Co they are busy keeping their heads above water when their loved nes are being slowly poisoned and murdered by unknown killers andthere is also a crazy faerie ueen The Texan Meets His Match out for their blood making it difficult to avoid dying HahaIt s uite a four stars read the plot is neat and tight there are a few twists and turns to keep the story interesting I like how the story and its characters develop 4 starsReview for book 1 for book 2 for the previous book for book By Toby and her strange bandf allies and not even Tybalt will be able to escape totally unscathed What's worse the Luidaeg is unavailable to help them This time they're n their wn And people keep making Toby wear dresses which is just adding insult to dangerous inju.

October Daye reminds me f 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 r 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 uibbling she d agree to borrow some money so we could go ahead and complete The Heretic's Handbook (Kindle Single) our mission The good news is that October has improved uite a bit in this book and will notnly actually allow friends to help but she ll probably cut the twenty minutes Blue Guide New York of pointless arguing down to fiveWhat I found enjoyable in Late Eclipses is some interesting plotting some long awaited character development in October and as always various fae legends come to life While she has seemed to believe that self sacrifice is the most important partf problem solving this time she s actively involving thers in seeking solutions There s also an twist involving October s heritage that is uite a surprise for her although perhaps less so for the rest f the fae and for the series reader and provides a number f avenues for further story development Still McGuire s writing remains troubled by inconsistencies and repetition Inconsistencies like Toby telling Tybalt you might want to let go f me before I m compelled to break your fingers about ten minutes after she s mused Garden of The Gods on how good he looks in suede and leather followed by a gentle but politically motivated kiss Inconsistencies like stating Oleander is the biggest nightmare known to Lord Sylvester s court but that she s probably just a legend to most fae Character inconsistencies like Etienne believing October saw Oleander after the ball but then tried to attack her because she fled the ueen s justice which was understood to be a death sentence Then there s the repetition if I ve read don t say thank you to the fae I ve read it twenty times and in this book we add in don t talk about fae deaths to the purebloods October is still a bitf a dope and could certainly use a cell phone instead f charging back and forth across San Francisco and Faerie Physical movement ften takes the place The Fruits of Graft: Great Depressions Then and Now of actual plot points but at least in this book her willingness to involve the group means we have greaterpportunity to interact with Danny the taxi driving troll and May the doppelganger as we go I could pass n the developing love triangle Team Tybalt Team Connor but at the moment it isn t verpowering the story Overall a number Musical Mathematics: On the Art and Science of Acoustic Instruments of improvements in character that keep the series readable The fae world is as always creative and fascinating so I m sure I ll be looking for the next bookThree and a half starsCross posted at 45 stars Well this series has definitely picked up I was very underwhelmed by the last book but thisne has definitely made up for it As we get and information about Toby s heritage the tale becomes and intriguing I m loving the slow burn between Tybalt and Toby although some Goig one please tell me why she can t let gof Connor who seems kind but a gormless wet fish compared to TybaltI don t normally read books in a series back to back I prefer to dwell Where Alligators Sleep on the story I ve just read Also if it s a good series I fear runningut Saraswati Park of books and horrorr horrors wait for the next to be written and published Still I m a fair way ff that happening here as I believe there are now 10 in the series Also I feel compelled to read them now until Toby and Tybalt finally get their act togetherReally glad I persevered with this series Recommended Reviewed by Rabid ReadsSeveral months have passed since we last saw October when LATE ECLIPSES begins ending whatever relative peace she enjoyed n her ff season I like that tactic by the way It makes all the hullabaloo ur MC experiences Young And Naive, Wasted Years on page feel realistic if we know things calm down when we re not looking whispers None can live in complete chaos 100% f time Regardless it must be said that an appropriate alternate title for the fourth installment f Seanan McGuire s OCTOBER DAYE series might be SHIT ESCALATES 1 Hateful characters get hatefulMost notably Rasyeline Toruill although the ueen Israeli Soldier Girl of the Mists isn t far behind Basically if they ve got an axe to grind with Toby they re no longer content to passively nurse their grudgeSO Be prepared to grind your teeth bc shiesty broads are shiesty2 Boys will be boysr cats Understories or USELESS CHICKENS who literally HIDE their faces when people drive too fastOkay so there s a bitf a triangle Not much f ne bc there s a clear front runner so mostly it s frustrating that Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook other dude is partf the euation BUT There were also numerous times when Front Runner ma. With Blind Michael and his Hunt safely behind her October Toby Daye is doing her best to settle back into a normal routine r as normal f a routine as she can manage with her personal Fetch now paying half the rent Still things seem to be mostly under controluntil the.
