    Another excellent book

    I've been anticipating what would happen with the Selkies for ages, especially after the events of the last book, and it didn't disappoint! Not to mention that we got a lot of chewy discussion of family and it's complications, which I always love. I was also delighted to read October circling closer to what's going on with Marcia, and to see more of the Lorden family. I'm also excited for October's epic quest! I figured that she'd eventually wind up on that road, but I didn't expect it so soon! Finally, the Raj story at the end was beautiful. I love how much Things That Happened continue to affect the characters in Seanan McGuire's writing.

    Luidaeg is one of my favorites!

    I hate when a new book by this author comes out: I know I will devour it quickly, and it will be at least another year before I can read another in this series. Toby has come such a long way since the beginning of this series, and this book just shows how. She now has a huge circle of friends/family, a group she knows she can trust implicitly. She knows she has to protect them, but she can’t always, and when the Luidaeg comes to have Toby fulfill her debt, she knows she must let them enter danger. This book was filled with the flowery, wonderful writing the author is great at, we learn even more about Toby’s extended family (make sure to read the novella at the end), and we are inching closer to the end of the whole series as Toby’s number of allies grows as she plays her role as hero of the realm. Every book gets better and better, and I don’t want this series to end. If you love urban fantasy, this series is one of the best. Highly recommend!

    One of my favorite UF series.

    The Unkindest Tide is another wonderful addition to the October Daye series. This is one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series, and I am so happy that after 13 books the author still delivers intriguing and amazing story-lines. In almost each book we get to visit a new place and be introduced to new characters. The characters keep on growing and learning new things. It is amazing to see what else is possible and hidden in this amazing world. I loved that this book was focusing on the Luidaeg, she is one of my favorite characters, and I was happy to see that she played a major role in this book. What I love the most is that there is never a dull moment in this series, there is always something exciting going on. The story is not repetitive and Seanan is continuously expanding the phenomenal world she built. In this book the Luidaeg has summoned all the Selkies to call in their debts from the deal she made hundreds years ago. She, October and others will sail to the Duchy of Ships, where all the Selkies in the world will be gathering to have their skins permanently bound to their bodies, to bring back the Roane. This book was action-packed, funny, emotional, and uplifting. Like always October gets herself into trouble, but always finds a way to get out of them. She is strong and loyal, and will always help the ones in need. We also get a couple of heartfelt scenes between October and Tybalt, which was a great addition to the story. There were also a couple of heartbreaking scenes, which made me want to hug both October and the Luidaeg. I think fans of this series will be satisfied and enjoy this book. I already look forward to the next book.

    Not as strong on details as usual.

    I’ve been reading the October Daye series by Seanan McGuire since the first book, Rosemary and Rue. If I have a conversation with you and we start talking about books, I will for sure mention Seanan McGuire and one of her excellent series, such as the InCryptid series, the Wayward Children series, or this one. She is one of the few authors that I actively search for as to when her next book is coming out. So it makes me sad to not give The Unkindest Tide five stars or even four. I wasn’t completely let down by the reading experience. Toby finally has to pay for all the favors the Luidaeg has granted her over the years. But the payment felt light. Just like this book felt light. But I expect a lot more from McGuire because I know she has the writing talent to be able to deliver. One of the things that I enjoy so much with the October Daye series is the details in the story. The Fae and all the other mythical people and creatures have very complex lineages, customs, and rules. McGuire’s books need to be written in depth to encompass all of these details. To me, The Unkindest Tide was a shadow of previous books. The story was still there but the depth of the book was light and airy. Will I still recommend the Toby Daye series? Of course. Will I read the next book in this series? Yes. Do I think you should read this one. Yes, especially if you’ve been reading the rest of the series. I would love to hear what you’ve thought of The Unkindest Tide if you decide to read it.
