SUMMARY FOR ONCE BROKEN FAITH:

Politics have never been October “Toby” Daye’s strong suit. When she traveled to the Kingdom of Silences to prevent them from going to war with her home, the Kingdom of the Mists, she wasn’t expecting to return with a cure for elf-shot and a whole new set of political headaches.

Now the events she unwittingly set in motion could change the balance of modern Faerie forever, and she has been ordered to appear before a historic convocation of monarchs, hosted by Queen Windermere in the Mists and overseen by the High King and Queen themselves.

Naturally, things have barely gotten underway when the first dead body shows up. As the only changeling in attendance, Toby is already the target of suspicion and hostility. Now she needs to find a killer before they can strike again—and with the doors locked to keep the guilty from escaping, no one is safe.

As danger draws ever closer to her allies and the people she loves best, Toby will have to race against time to prevent the total political destabilization of the West Coast and to get the convocation back on track…and if she fails, the cure for elf-shot may be buried forever, along with the victims she was too slow to save.

Because there are worse fates than sleeping for a hundred years.

REVIEW – A RED-ROSE CHAIN BY SEANAN McGUIRE

a red-rose chainThings are looking up.

For the first time in what feels like years, October “Toby” Daye has been able to pause long enough to take a breath and look at her life — and she likes what she sees. She has friends. She has allies. She has a squire to train and a King of Cats to love, and maybe, just maybe, she can let her guard down for a change.

Or not. When Queen Windermere’s seneschal is elf-shot and thrown into an enchanted sleep by agents from the neighboring Kingdom of Silences, Toby finds herself in a role she never expected to play: that of a diplomat. She must travel to Portland, Oregon, to convince King Rhys of Silences not to go to war against the Mists. But nothing is that simple, and what October finds in Silences is worse than she would ever have imagined.

How far will Toby go when lives are on the line, and when allies both old and new are threatened by a force she had never expected to face again? How much is October willing to give up, and how much is she willing to change? In Faerie, what’s past is never really gone.

It’s just waiting for an opportunity to pounce.

A Red-Rose Chain is the ninth installment in Seanan McGuire’s urban fantasy October “Toby” Daye series.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

A RED-ROSE CHAIN is a perfectly paced, edge of your seat read. This series just gets better and better! October “Toby” should have nothing else on her mind, is her future wedding of the King of Cats. Instead she is battling a pack of Mauthe Doog. Which come to find out was that they were only afraid, because they could not get back home. She calls Madden to help her and he finds a place for Mauthe Doog. While at Queen Windermere’s knowe, She receives a missive of an impending war with the King of Silences. Now this king was put on the throne by the Queen of the Mists. Who in the last book Toby defeated. Well, Toby is in deep do-do again. She has been chosen to be a diplomat of Queen Windmere and go to the King of Silences and convince him not to go to war with Queen Windmere. In true Toby fashion, she mucks it up as usual. Now it’s them or her. I love Toby and her gang! I recommend this book and series to everyone, and I give A RED-ROSE CHAIN 5/5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW- “THE WINTER LONG” BY SEANAN McGUIRE

the winter long by seanan mcguire
Book Description
Publication Date: September 2, 2014
Toby thought she understood her own past; she thought she knew the score.

She was wrong.

It’s time to learn the truth.

 

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

THE WINTER LONG is an outstanding installment to the October Daye series. Toby had thought her past was basically black and white, but when Simon Torquill is back in town everything changes. Simon is the one that turned Toby into a fish in the first book. Now he is back and he turns her world upside down. After this Toby’s life will never be the same. This book has such rich and beautifully well-developed characters that make the story outstanding. This book has so many twists and turns, and a surprising plot twist that will have you on the edge of your seat. Toby’s world will never be the same again. I love the world building in this series and Toby is a kick-ass heroine. She protects the ones she loves. I give THE WINTER LONG 5/5 stars. If I could give it more I would. I recommend this series and this book to everyone.
