5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant story with Toby and ALL the gang, 20 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Chimes at Midnight (October Daye) (Mass Market Paperback)
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!
