About the Book
This time around, Toby has to find Simon Torquill, her mother's husband and, according to Faerie law, her legal father. For her wedding with Tybalt to happen, Toby has to invite Simon to the event or else break one of the unspoken rules of Faerie, which could have dire consequences.
This was one of the more slower paced books in this series, but that didn't negate how good it was or how much I enjoyed it. We got some answers to some long held questions. Man, did we get answers! Some new questions too, but, gosh, I can't wait to see what comes next as a result of these answers. Gah, I'm so excited!
NOTE: This book does contain some strong language.
Tybalt describing Toby: “I trust her to be wild and impulsive and bold and self-destructive when it means someone else might be saved. I trust her to be the month she was named for, cold and kind by turns, endlessly storming, so that nothing can stand in her path but risk being blown away. I trust her to be October, and what I’ve learned, what’s done nothing to stop my heart being given to her care, is that to be October is to be constantly in the path of destruction and not always to have the sense to step aside. I’m uncomfortable not because I don’t trust her, but because I trust her too well.”
Sometimes family means being willing to be the one who buries the hatchet and takes the first step. Sometimes family means they’ve already buried the hatchet, in your back.
We carry ourselves forward through time, with no possible way of knowing what’s on the other end. We have to keep going, because standing still isn’t an option. It never has been.
