Fantasy. Fiction. HTML:The 18th novel of the Hugo-nominated, New York Times bestselling October Daye urban fantasy series.
For one bright, shining moment, Tybalt, King of Cats, had everything he had ever wanted. He was soon to set his crown aside; he had married the woman he loved; he was going to be a father. After centuries of searching for a family of his own, he had finally found a way to construct the life of his dreams, and was looking forward to a period of peaceor at least as much peace as is ever in the offing for the husband of a hero.
Alas for Tybalt and his domestic aspirations, fateand Titaniahad other ideas. His perfect world had been complete for only a moment when it was ripped away, to be replaced by hers. Titania, Faeries Summer Queen, Mother of Illusions and enemy of so many he holds dear, has seized control of the Kingdom, remaking it in her own image. An image which does not include meddlesome shapeshifters getting in her way. Tybalt quickly finds himself banished from her reality, along with the Undersea and the rest of the Court of Cats.
To protect his people and his future, Tybalt must find the woman he loves in a world designed to keep her from him, convince her that hes not a stranger trying to ruin her life for no apparent reason, and get her to unmake the illusion shes been firmly enmeshed in. And hell have to do it all while she doesnt know him, and every unrecognizing look is a knife to his heart.
For Tybalt, King of Cats, the happily ever after was just the beginning.

Usually, when an author switches the point of view, I hate it. This might be the one time I actually enjoyed it more than the FMC's POV. The sheer amount of heartache this book makes you feel is immense. This is not for light reading. Tybalt's truth needed to be heard, as did the alternate possible realities of many of our friends, so this was a necessary step in the series. But can we just go kick Titania's but now? Please? ( )

Series Info/Source: This is the 18th book in the October Daye series. I got a copy of this through NetGalley to review.

Thoughts: I was a bit disappointed in this book (similar with book 17, "Sleep No More"). Some of the beginning of the story was intriguing, but then once Tybalt catches back up with October it is basically a repeat of "Sleep No More". The fact that you already know how everything turns out if you have read "Sleep No More" takes a lot of the urgency out of the story.

This book follows Tybalt and starts right before Titania rewrites fairy to her liking. Tybalt wakes up confused in the Court of Cats and is forced to unravel the mystery of where Toby went and why things have changed so much.

There were a couple things I enjoyed at the beginning of this book. I loved learning more about the Court of Cats and Tybalt's past. I also enjoyed being able to delve into the Library of Stars and learn more about that. Additionally, getting to meet some of the monsters in the deep of the Saltmist kingdom was fun.

Unfortunately, once Tybalt meets up with October, the book is basically a copy of "Sleep No More" but with a couple of different scenes when Tybalt isn't with October. It's fairly boring. I am not sure what McGuire is doing here, but I didn't enjoy "The Innocent Sleep" much either and this was even worse. I hope this series wraps up soon before I start to really dislike it.

My Summary (3.5/5): Overall this was fairly disappointing. There were some aspects in the beginning of the book that I enjoyed but once Tybalt meets up with Toby this is a copy of "Sleep No More". I guess it is somewhat interesting to know Tybalt's thoughts on what is going on, but at this point in the series we know him pretty well and hearing from Tybalt didn't really give more insight into his character, I actually liked him less by the end of this book.

I plan on continuing with the series because I have stuck with it this long, but I have been enjoying each book less and less. Hopefully this series will wrap up soon because I am not sure where McGuire is going with all of this. ( )

The Innocent Sleep by Seanan McGuire is the 18th book in the October Daye Series, and I can honestly say there has not been a bad book in the series. In fact, I’ve loved each one of them.

In book 17, Sleep No More, we get October’s version of events after a major world change, and in The Innocent Sleep we get to see Tybalt’s side of the story. It was a wonderful experience getting the story from another point of view, and just goes to show how fantastic of a writer McGuire is.

Since this is book 18 in a fantasy series, you have either been reading from the beginning, so I don’t want to give anything away, besides you’re in for a treat. Or you haven’t read any yet, and whatever I tell you won’t make sense, so I’ll just say to start with book one, Rosemary and Rue… you can thank me later. ( )

TW/CW: Kidnapping, fantasy violence, brief sexuality, mild language

RATING: 5/5

REVIEW: I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily writing an honest review.

The Innocent Sleep is the 18th book in the fantastic October Daye series. One of my favorites, this set of books follows the changeling October Daye as she lives her life half inside Faerie and half outside of it, and the conflicts that arise along the way.

This is the first book in the series to have a narrator other than October, and I loved that part of it. It’s fun to be in Tybalt’s head. I have to admit that once in a while I found myself reading it as if it was from October’s point of view, but mostly that was just because all the others have been!

This book basically follows the story and plot of Sleep No More, but from Tybalt’s POV. I liked the first part – which was very different from Sleep No More. The second half has many more similarities with Sleep No More, but is still fascinating to see from a different perspective.

This was an excellent and fun book, and I would definitely recommend to fans of fantasy and urban fantasy! ( )

A parallel book to Sleep No More, telling the ensorcelled four months from Tybalt's point of view. We have never been inside his head before, and the closer look at him and at the Court of Cats is well worth the price of admission, even without the rest of the story. Do read this second, as it will make a bit more sense with the other background.

Recommended. ( )
