Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Seanan McGuire, Seasonal Fears is the extraordinary companion novel to Middlegame.

The king of winter and the queen of summer are dead. The fight for their crowns begins!

Melanie has a destiny, though it isn’t the one everyone assumes it to be. She’s delicate; she’s fragile; she’s dying. Now, truly, is the winter of her soul.

Harry doesn’t want to believe in destiny, because that means accepting the loss of the one person who gives his life meaning, who brings summer to his world.

So, when a new road is laid out in front of them—a road that will lead through untold dangers toward a possible lifetime together—walking down it seems to be the only option.

But others are following behind, with violence in their hearts.

It looks like Destiny has a plan for them, after all....

One must maintain a little bit of summer even in the middle of winter.” (Thoreau)

Even more excellent than Middlegame

Seanan McGuire just keeps getting stronger as a writer, and I'm so pleased with her success. And the best part is that you really don't need to read the first one to get this one; seasons incarnated into people are much easier to grasp than math and language. Seeing the old gang was lovely without getting too cumbersome, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening.
The accents are distinct, even if I hate the way the author says the word 'again' the performance was still good. Will definitely listen again someday.

Exposition

This book is nothing but exposition. It’s hardly has a plot. And there is essentially nothing standing between them and their goal. It’s a big disappoint from its predecessor.
