It further develops the world and characters while maintaining the right balance between a fast-paced story and character development.
Honod in all, this series is fulfilling its potential and it looks the Pure Bloods’ despicable attitude toward the Changelings will be coming to a head in the next book. Now that I’ve managed to get my venting out of the way, I’d like to take the opportunity to say that even with the above, I still enjoyed the book.
Is just me or does anyone else get a little thrill when Tybalt calls her ‘ little fish’? So, I will spare all of us this nonsense and will recommend mcguite to all those who love imagination and fairy tales.
Of course, the true highlight of the story is Toby’s interactions with her makeshift family. View all 12 comments. From orphaned changeling kid, wandering lost in the human world.
But the characters have definitely grown, and one cannot help feeling the strong bonds that have developed amongst this group of friends and seanna the bonds that have developed between our two main characters.
McGuire is a dab hand at dialogue, and the bantering between Toby and everyone — especially Tybalt — is one of the highlights of the book. One thing I loved about Ashes of Honor was the re-focus it gave to sesnan human world, something that has been fairly neglected until now though we saw a bit in the previous book. Since that book, she has been much better and her competence and level-headedness in this book were quite an improvement.

She has obstacles to overcome, probably as many of them in her own mind as in the real world. There are at least four more books planned with one coming out every year in September through Furthermore, it makes Toby deal with tough issues without making these tough issues a stumbling block for story progression.
What the hell happened to the police officer? 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.
I always think that the most recent Toby novel will be my favorite, and every time, McGuire ups the ante and puts out a better one. Ashes of Honor finds the balance between being introspective and being action-oriented, and holds that balance exceptionally well.
In my opinion, it is, hands down, the best Toby to date.
This is book, folks, where Toby Daye finally wakes up and smells the coffee, both literally and figuratively. There is kissing, some deep conversations, kissing, admittance of feelings and kissing…. Definitely the best installment in the series both in terms of plot and character development. And years ago the fae world was almost destroyed by a powerful teleporter. If not, go get all six books, listed in order below. It had an interesting plot thread, and through it we learned about Tybalt’s past and also of how the succession of the King works, so that added a good dimension to the story.
Things that I have been wanting to see We also got to have all of our favorite cast doing their part to keep Toby safe from her own suicidal tendencies and giving her a hand when most needed TnT Toby and Tybalt finally got some traction. No matter how cold it was, no matter how dark it was, I always knew someone was going to come and bring me home.
It’s something subtle, nothing full blown, in fact, for all intents and purposes they love and care about each other, but it’s a relationship I’ll be paying a very close attention as the story goes along. But, this is still better than most everything else out there, and Seanan McGuire is still one of the authors I buy immediately upon publication.
Her actions have been verging on suicidal and her friends are all incredibly worried about her so when Etienne asks her to help him find his missing changeling daughter they worry it will push her too close to the edge.

It has everything that a truly wonderful UF series needs: In an Absent Dream.
How to write a great review. I sure as shit didn’t fly. He was still wearing his human disguise. The worldbuilding is natural, flowing, and organic.
