Itâs been almost a year since October âTobyâ Daye averted a war, gave up a county, and suffered personal losses that have left her wishing for a good dayâs sleep. Sheâs tried to focus on her responsibilitiesâtraining Quentin, upholding her position as Sylvesterâs knight, and paying the billsâbut she canât help feeling like her world is crumbling around her, and her increasingly reckless behavior is beginning to worry even her staunchest supporters.
To make matters worse, Tobyâs just been asked to find another missing childâ¦only this time itâs the changeling daughter of her fellow knight, Etienne, who didnât even know he was a father until the girl went missing. Her name is Chelsea. Sheâs a teleporter, like her father. Sheâs also the kind of changeling the old stories warn about, the ones with all the strength and none of the control. Sheâs opening doors that were never meant to be opened, releasing dangers that were sealed away centuries beforeâand thereâs a good chance she could destroy Faerie if she isnât stopped.
Now Toby must find Chelsea before time runs out, racing against an unknown deadline and through unknown worlds as she and her allies try to avert disaster. But danger is also stirring in the Court of Cats, and Tybalt may need Tobyâs help with the biggest challenge heâs ever faced.
Toby thought the last year was bad. She has no idea.
âTobyâs unusual heritage and her uneasy relationships with her motherâs family will remind readers of Briggsâ Mercy Thompson series, and Thompson fans will appreciate Tobyâs tough and self-reliant characterâ¦a must for fans of genre-bending blends of crime and fantasy.â âBooklist (starred review)
