Chimes at Midnight (2013) — The seventh book in the October Day October Daye series by Seanan McGuire.

Author's Description Edit


The goblin fruit problems in the Mists are getting worse, and changelings are dying. It's hard for October "Toby" Daye not to blame herself, especially since she still holds herself partially responsible for the death of her old mentor, Devin, who was once a major factor in keeping goblin fruit off the San Francisco streets. With him gone, there are no barriers. Something has to change.

But change is hard, and always comes with a cost. How much will Toby have to pay, and how many old bills will come due, before she can save her city—and more, before she can save herself?

Chimes at Midnight is the seventh book in the October Daye series, a modern urban fantasy set in both the San Francisco Bay Area and the Faerie Kingdom of the Mists which overlays Northern California. It was released in North America by DAW Books on September 3rd, 2013. ~ Seanan McGuire: Chimes at Midnight

Back Cover TextEdit

Things are starting to look up for October "Toby" Daye. She's training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit.

Toby's efforts to take the problem to the Queen of the Mists are met with harsh reprisals, leaving her under sentence of exile from her home and everyone she loves. Now Toby must find a way to reverse the Queens decree, get the goblin fruit off the streets—and, oh, yes, save her own life, since more than a few of her problems have once again followed her home. And then there's the question of the Queen herself, who seems increasingly unlikely to have a valid claim to the throne...

To find the answers, October and her friends will have to travel from the legendary Library of Stars into the hidden depths of the Kingdom of the Mists —and they'll have to do it fast, because time is running out. In faerie, some fates are worse than death.

October Daye is about to find out what they are. ~ eanan McGuire: Chimes at Midnight
