After spending fourteen years lost to both the fae and mortal worlds, only to be dragged back into Faerie by the murder of someone close to her, October "Toby" Daye really just wants to spend a little time getting her footing. She's putting her life back together. Unfortunately, this means going back to work for Duke Sylvester Torquill of Shadowed Hills, doing her duty as a knight errant. That isn't the sort of thing that exactly lends itself to a quiet existence, and before she knows it, Toby's back on the road, heading for the County of Tamed Lightning in Fremont, California to check on Sylvester's niece, January.

Things in Tamed Lightning turn out to be a lot stranger than they seemed at first glance, and Toby's talent for finding trouble isn't doing her any favors. With Quentin—a young foster from Sylvester's Court—in tow, and the stakes getting higher all the time, it's up to Toby to solve the mystery of Tamed Lightning, or face a failure whose cost will be too high for anyone to pay.

Her liege lord, Duke Sylvester of the Shadowed Hills, sends her to his niece’s domain to see what is up. Toby and her sidekick Quentin come across far more than they expected, the pile of...

I enjoyed this installment, but I saw a lot of negative reviews for it so I was a bit weary going into it. A lot of people were complaining that this book was "too long" for the content and I can totally see that, but I definitely think listening to this series on audio would be preferred if that's ...

Tough one to review, this one. I liked the story, the characters and they mystery but I think it was too fat. Could have been much leaner. I have the same problem I had with Toby in the 1st book - she seems too young for her supposed age. There's a lot of repetition as some other reviewers have ...
