Overview

Ashes of Honor (October Daye Series #6) by Seanan McGuire

New York Times-bestselling October Daye series • Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire • "Top of my urban-paranormal series list!" —Felicia Day

It’s been almost a year since October “Toby” Daye averted a war, gave up a county, and suffered personal losses that have left her wishing for a good day’s sleep. She’s tried to focus on her responsibilities, but she can’t help feeling like her world is crumbling around her, and her increasingly reckless behavior is beginning to worry even her staunchest supporters.

To make matters worse, Toby’s just been asked to find another missing child…only this time it’s the changeling daughter of her fellow knight, Etienne. Chelsea, a teleporter like her father, is the kind of changeling the old stories warn about: the ones with all the strength and none of the control.  She’s opening doors that were never meant to be opened, releasing dangers that were sealed away centuries before—and there’s a good chance she could destroy Faerie if she isn’t stopped.

Now Toby must find Chelsea before time runs out, racing against an unknown deadline and through unknown worlds as she and her allies try to avert disaster. Toby thought the last year was bad.  She has no idea.

About the Author

Seanan McGuire is a California-based author with a strong penchant for travel and can regularly be found just about anyplace capable of supporting human life (as well as a few places that probably aren’t). Early exposure to a vast number of books left her with a lifelong affection for the written word, and led, perhaps inevitably, to her writing books of her own, starting somewhere around the age of eleven. The October Daye novels are her first urban fantasy series, and the InCryptid novels are her second series, both published by DAW and bother of which have put her in the New York Times bestseller list. Seanan was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer; Rosemary and Rue, the first novel in the October Daye series, was named one of the Top 20 Paranormal Fantasy Novels of the Past Decade; and her novel Feed, written under the name Mira Grant, was named as one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2010. She also won a Hugo for her podcast, and is the first person to be nominated for five Hugo Awards in a single year. You can visit her at www.seananmcguire.com.

Simply Wonderful! This series is still fresh and exciting at book six. I love Ms. McGuire's storytelling and her imagination. Her fae world is full of unique characters and grand adventures...adventures that are never predictable and always suspenseful....characters that are complex and full of wit. I absolutely love the way the book ended and cannot wait for the next book in the series!!!!

I have been following this series since the beginning, and it has only gotten better with time. October/ Toby is a strong female character, but even in her strength she still shows vulnerability. Throughout the series, Seanan McGuire has set up little mysteries that make me want to read on to find the answers. In Ashes of Honor she has answered one of them, What is Tybalt's fascination with Toby? But set up more. Who are Quentin's parents? Plus she has written a darn good story with a couple of interconnecting plots. One deals with how Toby will find and deal with the Changeling situation, The other is how she and Tybalt will deal with the problem in the Court of Cats. I don't want to spoil the read for anyone- so I am being vague. Go get it and give it a read- but start at the first book if you want to get the most out of it.

Seanan Mcguire has done it again. It was very hard to put this book down. The book moved at a very fast pace and the story was very engaging. I love the ending and what the future holds for the series. I would recommend anyone who has not started this series, to start. But start at the begining with Rosemary and Rue. I love the characters and the changes in the personal lifes that came out in this book.

I've liked the others so far but this is the best yet. Kicks into gear much sooner than the previous books and keeps you turning the pages!
