Review: When Sorrows Come by Seanan McGuire

Series: October Daye #15
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Toby’s getting married! Now in hardcover, the fifteenth novel of the Hugo-nominated, New York Times-bestselling October Daye urban fantasy series.

It’s hard to be a hero. There’s always something needing October “Toby” Daye’s attention, and her own desires tend to fall by the wayside in favor of solving the Kingdom’s problems. That includes the desire to marry her long-time suitor and current fiancé, Tybalt, San Francisco’s King of Cats. She doesn’t mean to keep delaying the wedding, it just sort of…happens. And that’s why her closest friends have taken the choice out of her hands, ambushing her with a court wedding at the High Court in Toronto. Once the High King gets involved, there’s not much even Toby can do to delay things…

…except for getting involved in stopping a plot to overthrow the High Throne itself, destabilizing the Westlands entirely, and keeping her from getting married through nothing more than the sheer volume of chaos it would cause. Can Toby save the Westlands and make it to her own wedding on time? Or is she going to have to choose one over the other?

When Sorrows Come is the 15th book in the October Daye series. It is the longest series I have read and it is still so good. October "Toby" Daye is finally getting married to her fiancé, Tybalt, San Francisco's King of Cats. Of course things don't go as planned, because it never does in Toby's life. This addition to the series was in my opinion more laid-back but it still had a great amount of violence and action. The number one question is: will Toby get stabbed or will she be off the hook in this book? You'll have to read and see. I never get tired of uncovering new secrets and seeing Toby's relationship with the side characters develop further. I especially adore her relationship with her squire Quentin and the Luidaeg.

This book was another great addition to the series. I honestly hope it doesn't end any time soon, because I love Toby and all the side characters. This book was fun, action-packed, mysterious, and emotional at times. I loved seeing some of the characters show their softer sides. The novella that was included was a perfect ending to this book because it completed the story for me. The writing was amazing like always. I was hooked to the story and there wasn't a dull moment. I can't wait to see what Toby and her gang will be up against in the next books.
