October Daye Reread Blog Tour! + Huge Giveaway!


Late Eclipses Favorites

Hello everyone! I’m excited to join the blog tour celebrating the latest addition to the October Daye series: Once Broken Faith. There are two giveaways to enter, one for a copy of Late Eclipses (book four!) and one for the whole kit and caboodle :D. Today I want to take the opportunity to discuss my favorite parts of Late Eclipses from the read along we recently had since this is my favorite of the Toby books so far!

There will be spoilers for Late Eclipses below!!

Late Eclipses

  1. Real consequences – While Toby’s life has never been easy, this was the first book where a secondary character whom I had grown exceedingly attached to was lost. Too often series have characters that are clearly safe because the author can’t bring themselves to kill them off. Lily’s death makes it clear that no favorites are safe, which ups the tension for the rest of the series.
  2. Adorableness – Tybalt and Toby finally start having to deal more seriously with their feelings for each other but the way that they do it makes me like them even more since they aren’t being annoying about it, haha.
  3. There is a whole lot more to Toby – This is the book where we find out that Toby is from a Fae bloodline that no one knows anything about and where her mother changes her so that she is much more Fae than human. To me at least, all of these events make it feel like this is the start of Toby’s real story.
  4. Story structure – I have to admit that I didn’t particularly like book three’s story structure since it didn’t rely much on a mystery and more just action. Therefore, I was quite happy that Late Eclipses was all mystery and discovery about the world. That’s my favorite thing about urban fantasy :).

What is your favorite book so far?
