From the back cover:
"Two years ago, October "Toby" Daye believed she could leave the world of Faerie behind. She was wrong. Now she finds herself in the service of Duke Sylvester Torquill, sharing an apartment with her Fetch, and maintaining an odd truce with Tybalt, the local King of Cats. It's a delicate balance--one that's shattered when she learns that an old friend is in dire trouble. Lily, Lady of the Tea Gardens, has been struck down by a mysterious, seemingly impossible illness, leaving her fiefdom undefended.

Struggling to find a way to save Lily and her subjects, Toby must confront her own past as an enemy she thought was gone forever raises her head once more: Oleander de Merelands, one of the two people responsible for her fourteen-year exile. But if Oleander's back, what's her game? Where is she hiding? And what part does Toby's mother, Amandine, have to play?

Time is growing short and the stakes are getting higher. For the Queen of the Mists has her own agenda, and there are more players in this game than Toby can guess. With everything on the line, she will have to take the ultimate risk to save herself and the people she loves most--because if she can't find the missing pieces of the puzzle in time, Toby will be forced to make the one choice she thought she'd never have to face again..."

I think you would struggle with this if you hadn't read the preceding books - what's a Fetch, why does her niece Karen crop up, but only in dreams, who is Raj and so on. It's very much a continuation of a story in progress, and although it ends, in that there's no cliff hanging ending and the immediate problems are resolved, the story is clearly not over yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceit and Drama 14 Jun 2011
By Stephie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The fourth instalment of the October Daye series opens innocently enough with a late night trip to the shops. Toby's peace does not last long though and within the first chapter she is called to the court of the insane Queen of Mists. The fae Queen has plans for Toby and she is not the only one because a mysterious sickness rises and targets Toby friends with a suddenness that suggests poison most foul. Now Toby must race against time to save those she loves because if she fails not only will her friends die but she will be framed for murder and be forced to forfeit her own life.

This book is the beast one yet. A Local Habitation was almost entirely set in Fremont and An Artificial Night was mostly spent lost in a nightmare landscape but Late Eclipses returns us to San Francisco and the friends that we love and the old enemies that we love to hate.

The pacing is good and improves on the previous entries to the series. I don't want to spoil any of the events for anyone else because I had such fun reading this myself. Relationships progress and secrets are revealed. There is tragedy and victory and humour and betrayal.

There was one particular moment toward the latter half of the book that changed Toby's life significantly that I thought was particularly well done. It was a brave move by the author but the way it was written and hinted at in previous instalments was brilliant. It inspired rereading of the previous instalments to fully appreciate the authors skill and foreshadowing.

There is also the traditional love triangle between Connor/Toby/Tybalt which personally I feel is unnecessary. I like sexual tension as much as the next red blooded individual but I can't help but feel that it soon needs to come to an end and that Toby needs to make a choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful series 6 May 2011
By hazelc1
Format:Mass Market Paperback
these books are wonderful. as the previous reviewer said these really need to be read in order to fully understand the characters and see how they have evolved since the start. my only problem is that i hate to start reading because all too soon i've read it and then have to wait months for the next one! even if the idea of fairies and fetches doesn't seem like something you'd normally read there are lots of twists and enough turns to keep you hooked from start to finish. roll on september!

5.0 out of 5 stars Late Eclipses by Seanan McGuire 22 Mar 2013
By SAT 18

Good story. I could not put the book down. I loved the series and would encourage others to read it, if you like supernatural or shifters, fairies and other supernatural beings.

Book arrived in good time, and in good condition. Will us them again.
