Revue de presse

"This installment bumped this series up to the top of my urban-paranormal series list! … Highly recommend it, can't wait for the next! Of all the "Faerie" urban fantasy series out there, I enjoy this one the most. If you like the Dark Fever series or Kate Daniels series, you'll def like this one." Felicia Day

"McGuire applies a hard-boiled mentality and a  keen appreciation for mythology to a blend of politics, magic, and romance to make this the most entertaining series installment to date." —Publisher's Weekly

"Fast-paced, without ever being frantic, with excellent characterization.... McGuire is a dab hand at dialogue, and the bantering between Toby and everyone--especially Tybalt--is one of the highlights of the book." —RT Book Reviews

"The October Daye series is one of those delicious worlds that becomes more and more beloved with each visit, and Ashes of Honor is my favorite of this series to date." —All Things Urban Fantasy

“Lots of portal hopping, visits to some of Toby’s old friends, and some deadly encounters keep things lively as the tension builds to a dramatic conclusion.” —Locus

"[McGuire] tells her story with energy and charm.... It’s all so much fun." —SF Signal

"Strong and evocative.... It has everything you could want: strong characters, detailed settings, and an engrossing plot." —Owlcat Mountain

"I love that Toby is a strong, independent--yet still vulnerable--heroine. I love that this is a world where people die, where consequences matter. I love the complex world-building and mythology. I love the almost film noir tone of the series. I love that each book leaves me wanting more. If you dig urban fantasy, this is one of the best out there." —CC2K

"With Ashes of Honor, McGuire has crafted a deeply personal and intense story that will keep you on the edge, hoping to be pushed over. In my opinion, it is, hands down, the best Toby to date." —The Ranting Dragon
 


 


 

 

Présentation de l'éditeur

"This installment bumped this series up to the top of my urban-paranormal series list!" —Felicia Day

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 down...at 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. 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.

Chimes at Midnight is the seventh installment of the highly praised Toby Daye series.

Je crois que j'ai oublié de lire le tome précédent mais une chose est sure, je vais relire la série en entier. Quelle héroïne!!!! Même si dans ce tome, elle est enfin avec Tybalt, leur relation est intéressante, il la respecte et la laisse se jeter tête la première dans les ennuis, très très très nombreux, pour se sauver et sauver le royaume. J'adore.

C'est simple October est mon héroïne favorite et ses aventures en plus d'être addictives sont époustouflantes.
Ici, avec des vies qui sont en jeu, October se frotte de trop près à la Queen of the Mists.

If you haven't read any of the October Daye series, stop reading here now. Just go directly to Rosemary and Rue and click on through to "complete purchase." Oh, go ahead and splurge a little. Buy the whole damn lot. The series is just that good. Don't waste another minute reading here when you could be reading there. Seriously. Go. Shoo.

I found this series by mistake one night, bought Rosemary and Rue on a whim, and have never looked back. McGuire's worldbuilding is flawless, her characters have depth and life and grit, and her writing just makes me damn happy. She's smart, she's clever - there's a plot with enough twists and turns to just flat out entertain me - but there's also the artistry of a masterful storyteller woven throughout - such that by the end, I'm left both standing somewhere I never expected to be, and thrilled by the ride it took to get there.

Chimes at Midnight is the 7th installment in this series. I suppose you could read it as a stand alone, as the actual story would make sense from beginning to resolution without having read the prior novels - but I'd never recommend it. You'd miss so much of what's being carefully revealed and developed as these characters and their stories unfold and intertwine - as well as the delight at how McGuire forwards all of it through a storyline that is both neatly resolved and expertly unfinished. Not having the whole of the series as a backdrop for Chimes - well, you'd still hear a lovely chime, but more like one fabulous bell rather than the whole carillon that's there to be heard.

Chimes takes the reader on the next leg of whateverthehell quest we're on with Toby - the one we love and fear and question and dive into and basically just pray it won't end any time soon. Secrets previously hinted at are revealed, others move from hint to whisper, still others are voiced just enough that I think I might have a bead on where we could be going. Maybe. I'm left guessing, thinking, wondering - and that just may be my favorite part.

There are many, many authors I'll read once, several I'll read often, and a rare few I'll actually re-read because the second time is actually better. Seanan McGuire made that list early on with this series, and quite honestly - I'm thankful. Because at the end of Chimes at Midnight, as much as I want more, want what comes next - I'm also left wanting to go back to re-read the series. Again. I'm now sure there's more I missed. More to be discovered.

And that, for my 2 cents and all it's worth, is some darn good writing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great addition to the series 5 septembre 2013
Par Veronica 87 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Four and a half stars.

Wow, things in faerie...they are a changing. The latest book in the October Daye series, which kicks off roughly 2-3 months after Ashes of Honor, brought together many of the plot clues that have been sprinkled throughout the series since book one and diligent readers will be rewarded for their careful attention to detail. The you-know-what hit the fan pretty early on in this book and things never really let up from there. Toby and company are on the move throughout the book. In fact, I don't think they ever spend more than two chapters in any one location. There is a definite sense of urgency in the story, as dictated by the circumstances, but even so I found myself wishing they could take a break here and there.

If you have a favorite character in this series, the chances are high that they make an appearance in this book. It seems that anyone who has ever been introduced in the books makes at least a cameo in this installment which, if I'm being honest, makes it seem a little crowded at times. On the other hand, it also serves to highlight just how far Toby has come since book one when she was living a solitary life. Toby has some definite choices to make regarding just how much of her life she wants to own moving forward and her decisions are so very...her. :)

And then there's Tybalt. I dare anyone to discuss this series without mentioning the King of Cats. Tybalt is all over this book and shows, without a doubt, that he just the Best. Boyfriend. Ever. If I have one quibble with this book it's that he and Toby are so very rarely alone - which relates back to so many characters making appearances - and the private moments they do get are too brief, at least for me. After the way that [book:Ashes of Honor|10184345] ended, I was expecting...a little more. Don't get me wrong, the moments they have are lovely and sweet but they always felt prematurely ended to me. If they had lasted one or two beats more it would have been perfect and would have made this a five star book for me.

As for the future, there was one character reveal that confirmed my long held suspicions and I am very curious to see how that will affect things going forward. There are also some extremely intriguing clues about Toby herself that have my mind working overtime. Readers will be pleased to find a short chapter/short story at the end of the book, told from the Luidaeg's POV, that also reveals some clues about Toby and what be still to come. The author mentions in the introduction that this book represents a new phase in Toby's life and I can certainly see how that will be the case. This is a series that shows no signs of slowing down and you can bet that I'll be along for the ride.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I can't wait for the next one! 4 septembre 2013

I've been a fan since the first book but this newest adventure of October's leaves me stunned. With this addition, McGuire takes the series to the next level. There was an amazing amount of character development for every character and we learn a few things that have been hinted at for awhile.

Tybalt and October's relationship deepened and was very sweet. I loved how he had to struggle against his instincts to be over protective of the disaster prone Toby, especially when she gets a face full of goblin fruit pie. As someone who has been waiting for this progression in their relationship since book one, I was extremely gratified to find out my waiting has not been in vain and that the reality of them together lives up to their promise.

As usual it is nonstop action in Toby's world as she gets herself out of one situation after another. McGuire does a good job of balancing the action with emotion and never let's the story drag.

A year is a long time to wait for the next installment and I have a feeling I'm going to have to retread this a few times before I can get my next fix!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Awesome story! 4 septembre 2013

I love the October Daye series, and this book did not disappoint. The plot was rich, and brought in many of the characters from previous books. We finally get to see the development of Toby's love relationship with (I won't say in case you don't know already). And, she finally gets a chance to stand up to the nasty Queen of the Mists. New mysteries were raised about the Luisaeg, and Toby's parents that will doubtless be addressed in future books.

I read many urban fantasy novels, and this series is truly among the best written. The characters are well developed, the world building is deep and thoughtful, and the descriptions and dialogue are simply top notch. It's the type of book where you really come to care about the characters and their lives. If you're new to the series, I definitely recommend starting with the first book. Your only regret will be finding yourself enthralled and unable to stop with one! I can't wait for the next one to come out!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Strongest October Daye book yet 5 septembre 2013
Par Jared - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I'm rounding this score up from a 4.5. There were some things about this book that annoyed me, but I felt that it was overall the best book in this series so far.

Spoiler-free summary: Toby has been clashing with the local Queen more as the books have progressed. In this installment, we reach a new level as the Queen maneuvers Toby into taking an action for which she can be banished from the land. Toby is running against the clock to find a way out of this decree and then things, as they do, only get worse. Toby digs into the history of the realm and of her (extended) family on the way to defeat the evil Queen.

What I liked:

1) Toby's making progress. The previous books had her running and trying to catch up to the villains. In this book, she's still running, but she's also trying to get ahead of the villains. Even though she's known for a few books that there are clues about her family and what's been going on, in this book she starts to act upon that knowledge.

2) Toby's learning her power in the world. Toby's an underdog and she thrives on that. In this book, however, she realized how many allies that she truly has and how quickly she can bring them to bear. In addition, she's learning about consequences that her actions have. It's not just scramble so bad things are compensated for, it's going out when you screw up and trying to make things right.

3) The worldbuilding is more coherent and interwoven. Previous novels each focused on one part of the kingdom or discussed one group of people. In this novel, things are starting to come together. The different duchies are pulled in, the Firstborn are related to what's going on today, and people that we don't see anymore have their roles in history revealed. The story is transitioning from a monster-of-the-week with overarching metaplot to stepping back and seeing how threads are woven together.

4) The storyline was both more epic (changing the course of a kingdom) and more personal (because a royal decree will ruin Toby's life) than previous books. The Queen's deadline in the novel adds to the personal weight of this novel's story: in previous books, someone else was in danger and Toby put herself under the clock, but in this book, Toby was in danger from the get-go. This was a good plot to match with the previous two points.

5) Danny got more screen time. As a near-invincible taxi driver that can get Toby anywhere, I like that he got bumped up in the ranking of supporting roles and this time wasn't just a deus ex taxi for when Toby needed to get around fast.

What I disliked:

1) Toby still isn't pushing. She learns that there's stuff that she needs to know, but she only takes what she's given. She doesn't ask more questions and push for more knowledge. As a reader, this gets frustrating.

2) The main and supporting cast has gotten quite large and books now reference events that have, for me, occupied the better part of a decade ago. I don't need a remind that Toby started the series by being turned into a fish, but it would be nice to get a reminder how someone lost their magic or where another person was during some major event. An oblique reference without refresh-explanation just leaves me wondering what else I've forgotten.

3) The ending. It stopped a chapter too soon, at least. The final page held the resolution of the major plot line and then, literally, a list of all of the minor plot threads that had to be tied up with a throw away `I'll have to take care of those` comment. I felt a bit cheated.

4) Some threads and minor characters felt dropped. This ties in a bit with the last point, they may have just been swept under the rug to let the book finish. Was Karen real; if so, she doesn't even get a phone call or even a mention to the character that may have called her in? Is Walther still waiting in his lab to hear what happened to Toby; did Toby ever tell him the fantastic compliment that he got? What happened to the goblin fruit in her system and ice cubes; she worried about them...but I guess no biggie?
