Toby Daye-a half-human, half-fae changeling-has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas... Now her liege, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, has asked Toby to go to the Country of Tamed Lightening to make sure all is well with his niece, Countess January O'Leary. It seems like a simple enough assignment-until Toby discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, and that if the killer isn't stopped, January may be the next victim.

Professional reviews

"In this third installment of an urban fantasy series set in San Francisco and in the fairylands of Blind Michael, Toby is working hard to rescue a number of children who have been taken. Mary Kowal is adept at bringing the characters alive and drawing out the humor and determination that run through even their darkest moments. Her tone for this first-person story is that of a chum recounting some unusual events she takes in stride. Kowal makes the extraordinary commonplace but also allows the strong emotions of the characters to come through. The earlier books in the series provide useful background on the characters and mores of this half-human, half-fey world. J.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
