105:120 The Winter Long by Seanan McGuire

The 8th book in the October Day series by Seanan McGuire.  This is a really hard book to summarize without giving away spoilers because almost the entire thing is spoilers so I will try really, really hard.  There are many things in Toby's life that she has taken at face value.  She really should have known when she found out that she was Dochas Sidhe, not Daoine Sidhe, that there was more going on in her life than she had been told and asked more questions but even if she had, not a single question she would have thought to ask would have prepared her for what happens in this book.  People are not always who you believe them to be and even death isn't as permanent as you think (as Toby should know).

This was such an intense book that it's easy to see why the author was telling everyone "This is where everything changes."  It certainly was a game changing book and it was definitely difficult coming back to reality after reading it.  Absolutely amazing and I'm now wanting to go back and re-read the entire series from start to finish to watch things play out with the knowledge I have now.  It won't happen this year but maybe next year...
