I...I love Toby, but omg this is book 16, please let it end and let Toby have her peace. I took a look at the next two books and everything turns to hell for her.

And what can I say after 16 books?! An enemy shows up, one too big. Toby just got married! It has taken ages! And now blood will flow and, sigh, poor Toby.

I liked it, but at the same time I am getting tired of them

October Daye is finally something she never expected to married. All the trials and turmoils and terrors of a hero’s life have done very little to prepare her for the expectation that she will actually share her life with someone else, the good parts and the bad ones alike, not just allow them to dabble around the edges in the things she wants to share. But with an official break from hero duties from the Queen in the Mists, and her family wholly on board with this new version of “normal,” she’s doing her best to adjust.

It isn’t always easy, but she’s a hero, right? She’s done harder.

Until an old friend and ally turns out to have been an enemy in disguise for this entire time, and October’s brief respite turns into a battle for her life, her community, and everything she has ever believed to be true.

The debts of the Broken Ride are coming due, and whether she incurred them or not, she’s going to be the one who has to pay.

The next two books are about the same thing, just alternating views...sighs
