Things are starting to look up for October "Toby" Daye. She's training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling down...at least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit. Toby's efforts to take the problem to the Queen of the Mists are met with harsh reprisals, leaving her under sentence of exile from her home and everyone she loves. Now Toby must find a way to reverse the Queens decree, get the goblin fruit off the streets--and, oh, yes, save her own life, since more than a few of her problems have once again followed her home. And then there's the question of the Queen herself, who seems increasingly unlikely to have a valid claim to the throne.... To find the answers, October and her friends will have to travel from the legendary Library of Stars into the hidden depths of the Kingdom of the Mists--and they'll have to do it fast, because time is running out. In faerie, some fates are worse than death. October Daye is about to find out what they are.

2nd re-read (27/09/15)4.5 StarsSince I practically didn't remember anything about it any more, this was almost like reading a new book :) I'm taking half a star *snort* because Hell, this was one never stopping roller-coaster! Also, author Seanan Mcguire could do so much more with the romance...
Getting better and better :)
Not another UF you say. Well, yes, sorry. She's not the most likable heroine, (she can be a bit sarcastic, stubborn, even bordering on the edge of TSTL - and utterly normal. She's not flashy or edgy, she likes routine and gets freaked out at the sight of blood) But the worldbuilding of Faerie is ...
Chimes at Midnight, the seventh book in Seanan McGuire's October Daye series, was an enjoyable read, but it failed to entirely fulfill my need for meaningful action. Like the rest of McGuire's work, the writing and characters were fantastic. However, Chimes at Midnight did not quite live up to my ad...
