New York Times-bestselling October Daye series • Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire • "Top of my urban-paranormal series list!" —Felicia Day

Meet Quentin Sollys. Squire. Hockey fan. Canadian. And Crown Prince to the entire continent of North America, known as “the Westlands” to the fae, currently ruled by his parents, High King Aethlin and High Queen Maida. Not that most people know that, since he’s a blind foster squired to a changeling—not exactly something that screams “hidden royalty.”

But with a new Queen on the throne in the Mists, his parents have finally come to town to see how he’s doing…and to take him home with them. That’s going to be a problem, since Quentin doesn’t particularly want to leave, and his knight, Sir October Daye, doesn’t particularly want to let him go.

Set after Chimes at Midnight and before The Winter Long, it’s finally time to meet the parents in our first-ever story narrated by Quentin himself.


  • Fascinating interplay of wishes, needs and the requirements of power

    By Mercuras
    People with political power over others will always need to be looking at their decisions in a balanced, "big picture" manner, and it was riveting to watch as Quentin and his parents approached to complex issue of What Next. His visit with Dean afterward complemented the many conversations nicely.
  • Delightful short story

    By Archangel Beth
    Read in order with the main series; it requires knowledge of characters. It is a short story or novella: I cranked the font way up on my iPad & got 100 pages out of it. (Non-correctable eyesight issues = big font.) It is a delight. Witty characters being witty. Minor social-only conflict; no one bleeds! (Seriously! & Toby is in it! She gets to eat & not bleed!)
