Winter Long ( October Daye #8) by Seanan Mcguire

"Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score. She was wrong. It's time to learn the truth."

Toby's life is finally looking good.
She has her friends. A job that she likes. And a guy who can turn himself into one of her favourite pets: A Cat. ;)
Then there's her actual two cats, and her rose-goblin Spike.

Unfortunately, the quiet has not come to stay...because where would be the fun in it?

An old nemesis of the past has returned, and he seems determined in finishing her of... or is he?

Of course Toby's has had enough of living in ponds, thank you very much. *see first volume* so she's not very receptive to his offers threats.
And the only contact she wants to have with fishes is Tybalt's pet name for her.
As if one villain wasn't enough, it seems that another one is behind Simon Torquill's actions.
And that person is strong enough to come after Toby's greatest allies.
Now, once again, Toby will have to defeat the foes that are determined to get her, while she comes to terms with more peculiarities that are part of her race. And yes, for someone whose greatest asset is blood manipulation _ or whatever it is that you want to call it _ Toby continues to be grossed out by the thing.
Thankfully she has a group of friends who are always there for her, even while some old links of her past are being slowly eroded.
I really liked Toby in this book. She acted mostly in a sensible manner and she finally came to terms that some things can't be fixed.
