Review: An artificial night – Seanan McGuire

October “Toby” Daye is a changeling-half human and half fae-and the only one who has earned knighthood. Now she must take on a nightmarish new challenge. Someone is stealing the children of the fae as well as mortal children, and all signs point to Blind Michael. Toby has no choice but to track the villain down-even when there are only three magical roads by which to reach Blind Michael’s realm, home of the Wild Hunt-and no road may be taken more than once. If Toby cannot escape with the children, she will fall prey to the Wild Hunt and Blind Michael’s inescapable power.

My thoughts:
This world just keeps getting cooler, though it did make me think too. All the fairies are so Celtic and created there. But how about the kitsune..are the Japanese fairies created by old ones back there or is the whole fairy world just Celtic? It does make me wonder. Perhaps we will find out one day.
Toby is searching for missing kids in this one as Blind Michael and the Wild Hunt is on the move. I also learn a bit more about fairie and the first ones and the more I know, the more I want to know even more. The world is good, the fairies wicked and good. And Toby is always in the danger of loosing her life. The poor woman takes on jobs too big for her.
Tybalt is back and as I love cats I love him, he is the king of cats after all. But he is a bit shifty. As for other love interest, there is always Connor, whose wife (she is one crazy woman) wants to Kill Toby. Poor Toby again as she can’t even have her old friends back.
The story throws a few twists and turns and it’s a hard book to put down. 
I accidentally read a spoiler for book 4 πŸ˜‰ Nothing that said something, just what would happen and that made me go omg. I want that book. I am always on the look for more answers when it comes to this series. So now I can’t wait to read book 4.
Conclusion:
A cool UF series that I recommend.
