Seanan McGuire is probably the best example of a fantasy author around today who has not started going downhill after book 4, book 5 or book 6 of a series. A brilliantly realised world with a great array of characters from our heroine 'Sir' Toby, her cat-shifter boyfriend Tybalt, her fetch/sister May (I still love the May to October joke), her squire Quentin (who is 'Canadian') and the first-born Ludaeig - all of whom feature strongly in 'Chimes at Midnight'. With a theme focused on Toby's relationships and how they would change (whether they would survive) if she were all human this is a great addition to the earlier novels. You start to learn much more about Quentin (I'm looking forward to follow-ups there) and there are a few clues along the way of things that relate to Toby and her mother that will no doubt crop up later. Strongest of all is the growth in the relationship between Toby and Tybalt with Tybalt nearly losing it when he isn't allowed to see Toby by the Duke and then when he tries to persuade her to turn human to save her life. Superbly written - I only just managed not to turn it into an all-night read!

I first discovered Seanan McGuire through her pseudonym Mira Grant. I enjoyed her "Newsflesh" characters so much that I wanted to give October (Toby) Daye a chance. Here I am seven novels later still reading about the adventures of changeling / knight / hero / granddaughter of Oberon: Toby Daye.

Why is it I like the October Daye series so much? My main reason has to do with the development of Toby’s character. Growth (whether for light or dark) in a character is what keeps me reading certain authors. If that development stops I move on. Thus far, I have had every reason to remain with October Daye and her faery world.

By now there have been so many losses and changes in Toby’s life that it is a wonder she is still up and about. McGuire has not given Toby the easiest life to live. Simple lives can be fun to read about but in the long run complexity is so much more fun. McGuire doesn’t slow down Toby’s challenges in "Chimes at Midnight".

Once again, Toby discovers that just because something is bad for the changelings and for humans does not mean that the pure-bloods care. Some do, but faery who care about the lives of changelings and humans are definitely in the minority. So it has been throughout history. Many are the tales of faery interacting with people with devastating results for the person. Perhaps being immortal has something to do with that. At least that is an excuse we hear in "Chimes at Midnight".

There is romance going on between Toby and Tybalt, but romance is not a major part of "Chimes at Midnight". Action is. As with the other Daye novels, McGuire keeps her novels free from explicitness.

I liked "Chimes at Midnight". When "The Winter Long" comes out I am going to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great instalment in October's story 28 Oct 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love urban fantasy and Seanan McGuire's brand is one of the best. Her heroine is engaging and the world building is detailed and fascinating. The plots are exciting and owe much to modern 'takes' on myths and fairy tales. I am very impressed by a couple of things: the series is uniformly good i.e. there are no less exciting volumes and the author maintains a high standard in every book - and - the actual book is lovely, with beautifully written English (and yes, the 'local' slang etc. is perfectly reproduced) and no typos, which is a treat nowadays, even in novels from reputable publishers.

The series has individual adventures for October, the changeling heroine, but the underlying sequence of events needs to be understood for much of the story to make real sense. I would recommend anyone wanting to sample McGuire's work to go for the first in the series and keep the rest as treats to come later.
