Overview

“McGuire hits her stride with this fast-paced, sharply plotted, tense urban fantasy, the third featuring half-fae detective Toby Daye.” Publisher’s Weekly

Changeling knight in the court of the Duke of Shadowed Hills, October “Toby” Daye has survived numerous challenges that would destroy fae and mortal alike. Now Toby must take on a nightmarish new assignment. Someone is stealing both fae and mortal children—and all signs point to Blind Michael. When the young son of Toby’s closest friends is snatched from their Northern California home, Toby has no choice but to track the villains down, even when there are only three magical roads by which to reach Blind Michael’s realm—home of the legendary Wild Hunt—and no road may be taken more than once. If she cannot escape with all the children before the candle that guides and protects her burns away, Toby herself will fall prey to Blind Michael’s inescapable power.

And it doesn’t bode well for the success of her mission that her own personal Fetch, May Daye—the harbinger of Toby’s own death—has suddenly turned up on her doorstep…

An Artificial Night is the third installment of the highly praised Toby Daye series.

Praise

“[An Artificial Night] is wildly and beautifully descriptive, with scenes that will simply take your breath away…the third installment in the October Daye series is even better (if that could be believed) than the prior two. Author Seanan McGuire seems to have hit her stride and should enjoy a long career.” —Sacramento Book Review

Book three of the October Daye series is the strongest to date as McGuire picks up the action and rolls an assortment of nursery rhymes, fairy tales and folklore into a taut urban fantasy that holds your interest to the last.” —Monsters & Critics

I’m enamored of the world the author has created and continues to build on in each successive book. It’s vast and vivid and so very alive to me.” —The Literate Kitty

An Artificial Night is a terrific entry in the series, showcasing McGuire’s impressive skills with character and plot alike. She is quickly establishing herself as one of the major new talents in urban fantasy and horror.” —SFRevu
