103:120 Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire

The 7th book in the October Daye series.  Goblin Fruit is getting out on the streets and changlings are dying as a result of it.  It's highly addictive to humans while just a nice buzz for full-blooded fae but that means for changlings, the more human they are the faster it kills them as they want for nothing else but the extreme high it provides and can no longer eat real food.  Toby hates the stuff and once she has it confirmed that over a dozen changlings have died, she takes the information to the Queen of the Mists only to find out the Queen already knows all about it and could care less if changlings are dying.  Toby's coming to her just gives her an excuse to banish Toby from her Kingdom.  Now Toby has three days to sort every thing out and try to reverse her banishment but since this is Toby, you know nothing could be that easy.

This book had a ton of "OMG You did NOT just do that!!!" times in it for me.  I knew deep down that some of the things that happened could not be allowed to stand for long (although it wouldn't have surprised me if they had for a couple of books but not forever).  It kept me completely enthralled and on the edge of my seat the whole time.  I will say, the romance between Toby and Tybalt is beyond adorable and I'm thrilled that the two of them are together.

There is also a short story that is not to be missed as it is definitely foreshadowing some big  bad stuff coming Toby's way.  Poor Toby may never get to settle down and enjoy a quiet life.
