It’s time to dive back into the world of October Daye! Of Things Unknown is another short from this world, and it takes place after The Brightest Fell (it is also included with it, so it shouldn’t be hard to find).

April O’Leary is an oddity, even among the fae. I won’t go into the details of how she is different, as those that haven’t read The Brightest Fell will find those details to be a spoiler. (Here is your notice to go read the book!).

I find her character to be endearing, which in itself should probably be considered an oddity among the fae. So I guess that’s one spoiler-free detail I can mention. This is a short that was sorely needed, as it added a sense of closure, not just to the novel it follows but to April’s story as well. And yes, it did make me like her all the more.
