“When October is informed that Simon Torquill—legally her father, due to Faerie’s archaic marriage traditions—must be invited to her wedding or risk the ceremony throwing the Kingdom in the Mists into political turmoil, she finds herself setting out on a quest she was not yet prepared to undertake for the sake of her future…. and the man who represents her family’s past.” – Amazon
Since A Killing Frost by Seanan McGuire is book fourteen in the October Daye Fantasy series, it’s kind of hard to review. If you haven’t read the series (and you really should if you enjoy Fantasy) then you will have no idea what is going on since there are too many characters and backstories to even begin to explain.
And if you’re a regular to the series, I really don’t want to give anything away.
I can say with any series there are some books that are not as good, but A Killing Frost is excellent. A lot of storylines are settled (or as settled as they can be in the Realm of Fairie) and one major one is opened even wider and I am very excited to see how it’s going to go in future books.
Besides being a fantastic addition to the October Daye series, there is also a short story afterwards that gives greater insight into three of the characters. It’s a wonderful addition, and I’m interested to see how these characters’ relationship is going to progress.
