Publisher's Summary

Toby's getting married! Now in audio, the 14th novel of the Hugo-nominated, New York Times-best-selling October Daye urban fantasy series.

It's hard to be a hero. There's always something needing October "Toby" Daye's attention, and her own desires tend to fall by the wayside in favor of solving the Kingdom's problems. That includes the desire to marry her long-time suitor and current fiancé, Tybalt, San Francisco's King of Cats. She doesn't mean to keep delaying the wedding; it just sort of...happens. And that's why her closest friends have taken the choice out of her hands, ambushing her with a court wedding at the High Court in Toronto. Once the High King gets involved, there's not much even Toby can do to delay things...

...except for getting involved in stopping a plot to overthrow the High Throne itself, destabilizing the Westlands entirely, and keeping her from getting married through nothing more than the sheer volume of chaos it would cause. Can Toby save the Westlands and make it to her own wedding on time? Or is she going to have to choose one over the other?

Includes an all-new bonus novella!

The one where Toby gets married!

I loved this book! We are 15 books into the series, and I am still completely captivated by the world building, the characters, the mysteries, and everything else. Nearly all of my favorite characters were involved, and there were some big emotional payoffs following the wedding. I can't wait to see what Seanan has in store for us next.

Boring

Honestly, this series is just getting boring. It's basically the same story repeated over and over again. Toby walks into another kingdom, someone tries to take over that kingdom, Toby acts like she's in charge and better than everyone, everyone agrees, Toby saves the day. Rinse and repeat for fifty books.

It feels like the ending is missing

I really did like the book, but the novella is really tied into this book, so it's absence makes it feel a bit unfinished. The novella is not available independently anywhere, So I felt like I was being asked to buy the same book again.

Always a great story!

I have read or listened to Seanan McGuire’s series about October Daye multiple times. Although it is good to read this series in order, it is not necessary. But you will understand the references to the back stories better and how the current story came about. October and Tybalt are getting married despite political events. McGuire works with characters he has developed thoroughly and weaves the plot with good descriptions of locations and events. I definitely recommend this family friendly book!

Wonderful novel

As always, a another wonderful novel. The prefect mixture of adventure and plot. I read this book before listening to it and my only sadness is the bonus novella is not included in the audiobooj.

Shut up! I'm not crying, you're crying!

Dammit, Seanan! This better not be the last book! This is the happy ending Toby (and Tylbalt, of course) deserves. This story is so filled with warmth, love, and laughter, and touches on some very serious topics such a feeling abandoned by biological family and the importance of chosen family in helping us heal from that. I look forward to seeing what happens next with all these amazing people!
