ASHES OF HONOR
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
This newest installment in McGuire’s October Daye series is fast-paced, without ever being frantic, with excellent characterization. The different pieces of this story fit together almost perfectly, despite one character whose ability seems a little bit too convenient — until it’s revealed that there is a downside to what she can do. McGuire is a dab hand at dialogue, and the bantering between Toby and everyone — especially Tybalt — is one of the highlights of the book.
A year after relinquishing her rule of a county and experiencing the loss of a friend, October “Toby” Daye is living on autopilot. And then, to make matters more complicated, fellow knight Etienne hires Toby to find the changeling daughter he’s only recently discovered — and who’s just gone missing. Chelsea is 16 years old, and she’s inherited Etienne’s ability to teleport. But she’s untrained and has very little control — and her abductor is forcing her to teleport through worlds that have been inaccessible for hundreds of years, creating instability throughout Faerie. (DAW, Sep., 368 pp., $7.99)
