A Local Habitation

An October Daye Novel. Winner of the Hugo Award 2010, best Author

New York Times -bestselling October Daye series - Hugo Award-winning author Seanan McGuire - "Top of my urban-paranormal series list!" -Felicia Day
October "Toby" Daye is a changeling, the daughter of Amandine of the fae and a mortal man. Like her mother, she is gifted in blood magic, able to read what has happened to a person through a mere taste of blood. Toby is the only changeling who has earned knighthood, and she re-earns that position every day, undertaking assignments for her liege, Sylvester, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills.
Now Sylvester has asked her to go to the County of Tamed Lightning-otherwise known as Fremont, CA-to make sure that all is well with his niece, Countess January O'Leary, whom he has not been able to contact. It seems like a simple enough assignment-but when dealing with the realm of Faerie nothing is ever as simple as it seems.
Toby soon discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, whose domain is a buffer between Sylvester's realm and a scheming rival duchy. If Toby can't find the killer soon, she may well become the next victim.
Rezension
"McGuire's second October Daye novel is a gripping, well-paced read . Toby continues to be an enjoyable, if complex and strong-willed protagonist who recognizes no authority but her own...McGuire has more than a few surprises up her sleeve for the reader." -Romantic Times Book Review
"...for those of you who have read Rosemary and Rue , I have to say: A Local Habitation is even better . All the things that made Rosemary and Rue such a strong debut are still there: the wonderfully damaged heroine, the melancholy story, the gritty details, the perfect rendering of San Francisco, [and] unique and varied fantastic creatures..." -Book Love Affair
Praise for the series:
"At last, urban fantasy done right! ...Seanan McGuire's October Daye series gives us that perfect melding of "real world" and magic, with just a dash of romantic subplot, enhancing the main story rather than derailing it." -Collectortimes.com
