Rosemary and Rue is the great book set in the world of Faerie. Our heroine, October Daye, is of the tragic variety. She’s a Changeling who was working as a private detective, following another Fey, when she was transformed into a fish, losing years of her life in the process. Eventually, she gets back her original form but the world around her has changed – there are cell phones and scads of new technology, and all of her human friends (including her husband and child) have moved on, thinking that she just up and disappeared one day. So do her fey friends, but at least they can know the truth of what happened.

In Rosemary and Rue, Toby’s out to find out who killed Evening Winterrose, one of the people she knew before her transformation. She has no choice but to solve this murder; if she doesn’t figure it out, she’ll die.

With that kind if incentive, Toby quests for all she’s worth, which makes for a great story. Seanan McGuire has put together a great book. Toby’s an interesting protagonist and you really want her to succeed in her mission. There’s also a lot of good mythology, with some neat types of fae around. The next book, A Local Habitation, is slated to come out next month so I’ll definitely be hitting the bookstore then!
