    It's still an October Daye, but the light's getting a bit dimmer

    If you feel like October, May, and the King of the Cats are part of your family. If you still miss Lily. And if you can't get enough of the Sea Hag, then here's another Seanan McGuire yarn about your pals. It's fun. It (no spoiler here, I'd think) has a lot to do with what's going on in the sea-side of October's faerie world.

    Unfortunately, we seem to be hitting the classic mid-series slump that few authors are able to avoid (maybe THAT's why so many stop with trilogies). This isn't the least-engaging of October's tales (I think the 2nd book has the most pacing probems), but it is...well...leisurely. Until it kicks into McGuire top gear somewhere around page 250, then you're off to the races.

    I think it has something to do with the Jacques Cousteau curse. Great man; beautiful scenery, but I bet I went to sleep more often watching that stuff than I did in my own bed (jeez, probably date myself there, don't I).

    Anyway, I bought it. I'm glad I did. You'll like it. But I feel certain we'll see better stuff is coming down the faerie/otherworld pike in the future.
