New York Times-bestselling October Daye series • Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire • "Top of my urban-paranormal series list!" —Felicia Day
October "Toby" Daye is finally doing all right—and that inevitably means it's time for things to take a turn for the worse. Someone has kidnapped the sons of the Duchess Dianda Lorden, regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist.
To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must not only find the missing boys, but also prove that the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. She'll need all her tricks and the help of her allies if she wants to make it through this in one piece.
Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves. But someone is determined to stop her—and whoever it is isn't playing by Oberon's Laws. As the battle grows more and more personal, one thing is chillingly clear. When Faerie goes to war, not everyone will walk away.

I’m writing this at 3:00am because I couldn’t put the book down
This book made me laugh and squeal and cry in rapid succession. Also I finished it the night I bought it because I couldn’t put the book down
Action, action, and more action as October Daye finds herself juggling many different things but high on her agenda is preventing war. The conspiracy runs deep and the rag tag team of heroes scramble and pay the ultimate price in their quest. The story’s characters are endearing and add to the flavor of the book. The steamy scenes are nice and the action scenes are well written.
Amazing story from the first book to the last! I can't wait for the next one!
