Review: Be the Serpent by Seanan McGuire

Series: October Daye #16
Genre: Urban Fantasy

October Daye is finally something she never expected to be: married. All the trials and turmoils and terrors of a hero’s life have done very little to prepare her for the expectation that she will actually share her life with someone else, the good parts and the bad ones alike, not just allow them to dabble around the edges in the things she wants to share. But with an official break from hero duties from the Queen in the Mists, and her family wholly on board with this new version of “normal,” she’s doing her best to adjust.

It isn’t always easy, but she’s a hero, right? She’s done harder.
Until an old friend and ally turns out to have been an enemy in disguise for this entire time, and October’s brief respite turns into a battle for her life, her community, and everything she has ever believed to be true.

The debts of the Broken Ride are coming due, and whether she incurred them or not, she’s going to be the one who has to pay.

Be the Serpent is the 16th book in the October Daye series. I am still fully invested and dedicated to the story and awesome characters. I always look forward to what type of new adventure/mess October will find herself in. Seanan McGuire really threw a curveball in this book. I didn't see the plot coming and it broke my heart when I understood what was going on. This book is a bit more emotional than what I am used to from this author and tears rolled down my cheeks multiple times. 

I couldn't put this book down and finished reading it pretty quickly. I was just that hooked and intrigued by the story. I love being reunited with my favorite characters in each book, and seeing October's relationship grow stronger with the people she loves. Be the Serpent is a very strong addition to the series, and especially the ending has me dying to get my hands on the next novel. I am confused but also pretty excited to see what will happen next.
