For once, everything in October “Toby” Daye’s life seems to be going right. There have been no murders or declarations of war for her to deal with, and apart from the looming specter of her Fetch planning her bachelorette party, she’s had no real problems for days. Maybe things are getting better.
Because suddenly Toby’s mother, Amandine the Liar, appears on her doorstep and demands that Toby find her missing sister, August. But August has been missing for over a hundred years and there are no leads to follow. And Toby really doesn’t owe her mother any favors.
Then Amandine starts taking hostages, and refusal ceases to be an option.
When I hear that Seanan McGuire wrote it, I know that I’m in for another perfect literary escape.
Toby finds herself in a precarious situation and the people that she has learned to depend on the most have been taken. She must depend on her own wits while leaning on the one person she should never trust.
And it all comes down to family…Amandine, Toby’s mother finally shows herself and for Toby this is not a good thing.
To put it frankly, I can’t say much more about the plot of this book without giving away a spoiler. Yes, it is that pack full of life altering changes. I can say that The Brightest Fell was one heck of an adventure and should not be missed.
October Daye is one of my all-time favorite urban fantasy series. To say, I was hyped about reading the 11th installment would be an understatement. So many times, the anticipation doesn’t live up to actuality…The Brightess Fell exceed my wildest imaginations.
I received this ARC copy of The Brightest Fell from Berkley Publishing Group - DAW. This is my honest and voluntary review. The Brightest Fell is set for publication Sept. 5, 2017.
