October Daye is a nuanced character. And this is after her last major quest for Sylvester resulted in her not only failing to rescue Luna and Rosalyn, but also being trapped as a fish for 14 years — the aftermath of which she is only just recovering from. In fiction, I generally find there are 3 kinds of detective stories: 1 the investigator actively seeks the answer, follows a series of clues and brilliantly puts them together.
October Day kind of fits into option 3. In fact, by the end of the book her suspect pool has dropped to 3 people and one of them highly unlikely. She could have flipped a coin. One day…one day I will start reading her books and feel like I can officially hang out with the cool kids. I should also stop making excuses.
