Ashes of Honor (October Daye #6) by Seanan McGuire

October Daye (Toby) is still grieving. Her loss had made her reckless. Her friends are worried about her. She keeps on putting her life in danger and she seems to have lost her way. Then,  Etienne comes to her for help. He wants Toby to find his daughter, Chelsea.
Chelsea has been living in the mortal world and Etienne just learned about her existence. She is a tele-porter as well, and she can open doors to places in Faerie that had been long lost.
This is a very hard assignment for Toby, because she knows Chelsea will need to make a decision at the end, if  she is found alive.It will be the same decision that her own daughter had to make almost a year ago.

This book is very well written. It flows smoothly. The characters have all grown. They have learned from old mistakes and losses.
This is the best in the series so far.
Just want to end by thanking the writer for listening to her readers. We wanted more Tybalt and we got him. He was amazing in this book.
61% in my kindle has become an all time favorite bookmark.
5/5 Fangs
Spoiler Fangalert (not really- just 61% Tybalt)-

“What changed?”
“I fell in love.”
Four words, simply stated, and impossible to believe. “You can’t mean that.”
“Can’t I? It’s been a long time since I’ve loved someone, but I know what it feels like. When you turn from me, it hurts. When you think badly of me, I think badly of myself. When you do stupid, suicidal things, I want to slap you upside the head and demand to know how you can be so brilliant and so blind at the same time.” Tybalt’s expression was calm. “If that’s not love, what is it?”
“Why are you telling me this?” I whispered.
“Because we’re probably going to die today.” He waved his free hand toward the street. “I’ve always tried not to lie to you; I’ve seen how you react when others do. Dying without telling you how I felt would be lying. I’ve been patient. I’ve given you time to recognize my feelings, and I’ve seen you choose a man who loved the girl you were, not the woman you are. Now he’s gone, and I can’t be patient anymore. I love you, October. I’ll be sorry if we die here, but I won’t be sorry I helped you…and I won’t be sorry I finally told you.”
“Cats never regret anything,” he said, and he turned and kissed me.
