Toby and Gang Need Some New Adventures
Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2020
I always look forward to a new book in the October Daye series. Unfortunately this one seemed to be too much description and rehashing of the past from other books to either refresh your memory or fill in a new reader. That bugged and frankly it took me 2/3 of the way into the story to get interested at all. In no way is this book up to par with most of the others. I liked the premise that Toby needed all family members to be aware of the wedding or it potentially could bring about real challenges and issues in fairy for the happy couple. From there is feels like regurgitation of past perils and events. That saddens me because I have loved the creativity of these stories and I love the characters. All of them! I do hope we aren’t at the end of the line for this series and that this was just a not so good one in a series of so many truly fun, entertaining, and enjoyable ones. COVID restrictions aren’t fun so I was really excited to see a new story in one of my real favorite series of all time. I just wished it was as good as the bulk of them. I started and put it down numerous times until I finally made myself stick it out. Should you read it if you’re a fan like me? Yes, of course you must. We all have an off day or in this case “book”. Seanan, time for some new characters, new troubles, new mysteries, and maybe a change in scenery, a wedding and honeymoon.
