Of Things Unknown by Seanan McGuire (October Daye, #11.5)

This is an April O'Leary Novella. In it, April, as well as her living mother Li Qin have finally come to terms with the need to deal with all of the dead left in the aftermath of the earlier events in Tamed Lightning. For this plan, they will need to call a certain Blood Worker by the name of October Daye to assist them.

OF THINGS UNKNOWN is a novella included with most editions of THE BRIGHTEST FELL.

Queer Rep Summary: Lesbian/Sapphic Secondary Character(s).

This beautifully addresses some past hurts long lingering, and is a welcome tale in the series. I like the way April uses a unique blend of idioms and reference points to see things differently from how Toby does. 

CW for grief, blood, violence (backstory), parental death (backstory), death (backstory).
