Late Eclipses (October Daye #4) by Seanan McGuire
Toby is living with her Fetch May. Spike and the Cats are happy. Of course this can't continue.
Toby is called to Court- the Queen of Mists is giving her Evening's Goldengreen property. This is a trap of some sort. Tybalt tries to alert her. (He also kisses her to cause a distraction, Yay!!!)
Soon some of her closer friends are getting poisoned. First, it is Lily. She is dying and her knowe is in danger. Someone has stolen her pearl. Then, Luna falls ill as well. It will seem Toby will get the blame for all of it unless she finds the true culprit.
Toby suspects that Oleander is back and is getting help from Raysel and maybe someone else.
In this book, you can feel Toby's exhaustion. Also, the pain she experiences feels real.
I love Tybalt in this book although he still needs more pages. When is she going to pursue him? He has supported her from the get go. Don't tell me she is that blind to his love.
Spoiler Fangaler: Toby gets shot with Elf-shot and dies. Amandine, her mother comes to the rescue and changes her genetics, making her more fae and less human. She remembers that Tybalt has mentioned something before but he wouldn't tell her because she wouldn't believe him.
