Genre: Urban FantasyReview Copy Source: Publisher
Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score.
She was wrong.
It's time to learn the truth.
Short blurb. Let's just say she's back and she's crazy good as usual! With each book, October is able to find out more and more about herself and her family. THE WINTER LONG dives even further into not only Toby's past but also another firstborn is revealed and it throws just about everyone into a tailspin. There is a ton of action in book 8, a few twists and some near death experiences. Toby's fae powers continue to grow and her posse of loved ones are always on her side to help her through any situation she seems to find herself in.
It's been interesting watching the relationships October has with certain people grow and cease to exist with others.When the going gets tough you find out who your real friend are and Toby's life gets tough very often. I love how the relationship between Toby and Tybalt has grown and I absolutely LOVED the ending of THE WINTER LONG. I can't wait to see how their decisions play out.
I absolutely love that we don't get cliff hangers from this series(Too much love?). The author does a great job of wrapping up the storyline for each book while still getting us to want more. Just when you think you know the score she changes it up just a tad bit to get you all excited about what's to come. The October Daye series has a permanent spot on my bookshelf so as long as Seanan keeps writing, I will keep reading.
I gave it 4/5 stars
