rymenhild: gears from anime series Princess Tutu (The gears of the story)
If I had to have deadly, productivity-killing insomnia last night, at least I had the perfect book to entertain me while I wasn't sleeping. Seanan McGuire's fourth Toby Daye book, Late Eclipses, showed up on my doorstep yesterday morning.

I'd write a review, but almost everything I want to talk about is a major spoiler, and whatever's left are minor spoilers. Maybe I'll write about them in a few weeks, when everyone who cares has had a chance to get Late Eclipses and read it. Suffice it to say that if you enjoyed the first three books, the fourth extends them in fascinating ways. Several questions we've had get answered. To my delight, most of my guesses were wrong, and the answers to the questions are more interesting than the ones I was expecting. Several hints in Late Eclipses set up exciting possibilities for Toby's future, not to mention Faerie's future. I can't wait to see what comes next.

That is to say, if urban fantasy about snarky fae in San Francisco is your kind of thing, please buy this book and the books that came before it. The more people who buy them, the likelier it is that DAW will pay Seanan McGuire to finish the series, and the likelier I am to be able to read the whole thing.
