Review: In Deepest Consequence - Seanan McGuire

Review:
In Deepest Consequence is a short story from Tybalt's point of view that can be purchased from Seanan McGuire's Patreon Page. She posts a short story there every month, some standalone but a lot linked to her October Daye series, and you can receive them for as little as $1 each (there are other perks available for higher amounts but $1 is the minimum). The great news is that signing up as a sponsor gives you access to all the previous short stories and we're up to 8 October Day stories now (6 from Tybalt's point of view plus an Aeslin Mice one for Incryptid fans) so it's well worth signing up!

I can't get enough of these Tybalt stories, I love that we're getting the chance to fill in some of his backstory from the years before he met Toby. I really enjoy his relationship with his niece Cailin and this story is all about him finding a teacher to help her learn to use the magic she inherited from her father's side of the family. What is interesting is that seeing Tybalt's early years as a King of cats also gives us some insight into the Torquill family that are starting to answer some of the questions that we're left with from reading the main books. I'm definitely hoping for more from Tybalt's POV but I'll happily read as many stories as Seanan McGuire will write in this world no matter who the narrator is!
