New York Times-bestselling October Daye faerie series • Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire • "Top of my urban-paranormal series list!" —Felicia Day

Contains an original bonus novella, Of Things Unknown!

Things are slow, and October “Toby” Daye couldn’t be happier about that.  The elf-shot cure has been approved, Arden Windermere is settling into her position as Queen in the Mists, and Toby doesn’t have anything demanding her attention except for wedding planning and spending time with her family.

Maybe she should have realized that it was too good to last.
When Toby’s mother, Amandine, appears on her doorstep with a demand for help, refusing her seems like the right thing to do…until Amandine starts taking hostages, and everything changes.  Now Toby doesn’t have a choice about whether or not she does as her mother asks.  Not with Jazz and Tybalt’s lives hanging in the balance.  But who could possibly help her find a pureblood she’s never met, one who’s been missing for over a hundred years?
Enter Simon Torquill, elf-shot enemy turned awakened, uneasy ally.  Together, the two of them must try to solve one of the greatest mysteries in the Mists: what happened to Amandine’s oldest daughter, August, who disappeared in 1906.
This is one missing person case Toby can’t afford to get wrong.

Baker & Taylor
When her mother threatens the lives of loved ones to blackmail her into searching for her long-missing sister, Toby is forced into an uneasy alliance with elf-shot enemy-turned-awakened Simon Torquill in a race against time in the mysterious Mists. By the award-winning author of Rosemary and Hue.

& Taylor

When her mother, Amandine the Liar, forces her to search for her missing sister August, Toby must consult with the man who ruined her mortal life.

I don't necessarily feel like this is the best book of the series, but it's certainly strongly written. I'm starting to get really annoyed by the Liar and hope she gets her comeuppance at some point. BUT the cliff hanger at the end of this one had me howling!! This might be one of the reasons the Luidaeg is so enamoured of her niece. It makes me want to crawl inside the Seannan's head and get the next book out ASAP! Or the one which will resolve the questions of when and HOW.
