Seanan McGuire
« on: December 18, 2009, 02:04:52 pm »
Has anybody read "Rosemary and Rue" by Seanan McGuire? I picked it up at my libary and I was hooked at the prologue. October Daye is the heroine and she is half-fae trying to solve the murder of a fae friend.

From Amazon:
October "Toby" Daye, a changeling who is half human and half fae, has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the Faerie world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world has other ideas...
The murder of Countess Evening Winterrose pulls Toby back into the fae world. Unable to resist Evening's dying curse, which binds her to investigate, Toby must resume her former position as knight errant and renew old alliances. As she steps back into fae society, dealing with a cast of characters not entirely good or evil, she realizes that more than her own life will be forfeited if she cannot find Evening's killer.


Anyway, I thought it was a pretty good book and I am looking forward to the next one.

I really loved it, mystify. I was horribly disappointed to find out the sequel wasn't out yet! LOL

I don't want to write the great American novel. I want to write the great American beach read. It pays better!

Ha ha...I know...I hate having to wait. But I think I read somewhere that there will be 2 books coming out next year so that will be nice at least.

I really enjoyed this book too! I'm looking forward to learning more about Tybalt, The King of Cats. He's fabulous!  :D And at least we dont have to wait too long for the next book. A Local Habitation comes out March 2nd.

Yeah, Tybalt may get the modifier that I usually reserve for Pritkin from the Cassie Palmer series: Mmmmm... Tybalt. :D

 LOL Well, it was bought about an hour before my power adapter cord died and I had to finish another e-book that you evil bookpushers suggested before the battery died on me  >:(. I didn't manage it, there were only two chapters left! Now I have to wait until I get a new cord to actually read it and this is driving me crazy, it really really is.
