I'm not going to lie, I love Seanan McGuire and the October Daye series. I gushed over Rosemary and Rue when it first came out, and I've been devouring each book as they come out. And I'm not the only one--the fourth book in the series, Late Eclipses hit the NY Times extended list just a few weeks ago.
And it just so happens, I have an extra copy of Late Eclipses.
IT'S DARKEST JUST BEFORE THE DAWN
With Blind Michael and his Hunt safely behind her, October "Toby" Daye is doing her best to settle back into a normal routine—or as normal of a routine as she can manage, with her personal Fetch now paying half the rent. Still, things seem to be mostly under control...until the events of a single night send everything reeling. Now, with the Queen of the Mists watching her back and the Lady of the Tea Gardens deathly ill, Toby has no choice but to get involved, no matter how much she wants to avoid it.
The trials ahead will be some of the worst faced by Toby and her strange band of 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 on their own. And people keep making Toby wear dresses, which is just adding insult to dangerous injury...
Late Eclipses is the fourth book in the October Daye series, a modern urban fantasy set in both the San Francisco Bay Area and the Faerie Kingdom of the Mists which overlays Northern California.
