December 23, 2010

drey's thoughts:
October "Toby" Daye lost everything fourteen years ago when she's spelled into a fish. Yup, a fish. So what's the first thing she does when the spell lets her go? Why, ignore all the fae of course. I mean, they're the ones who did it to her. Not that they usually treat her any better--she's only half fae after all.

Then she gets dragged into a binding, by--guess who?--a fae (of course). And now Toby has to revisit old haunts and old friends, and figure out who she can trust. Precious few, as it turns out. Keeping her secret close to her vest, she tries to find the killer(s) before they find her. And boy, are they looking hard.

Rosemary and Rue is fast-paced and action-packed. Toby is more vulnerable than kick-ass, but still has a mouth on her. You guys know how much I like sass, right? Well, I think Seanan McGuire wrote her just right. *grin* You'll love this is if you like urban fantasy with mystery, murder, and mayhem at its heart.

drey's rating: 3.5/5 Very Good
