Rosemary and Rue by: Seanan McGuire
Every once in awhile I come apon a book that just grabs
me and hooks me in. That was the case with Rosemary and Rue. Wondering
around the book store, I saw the title and picked it up to take a
gander. I read the back and think this should be good. I buy it, bring
it home and put it on the to be read pile. I finished reading it today. I
liked it so much I wanted to write a review. I am no pro but this is
what I think....
Rosemary and Rue is a great blend of fantasy, mystery, folk lure and faerie tales. A true urban fantasy.
" Toby" Daye, a changling(half human half fae), a stunning woman with a
can't back down attitude. Just trying to live her life until a major
death in the fae world pulls Toby out of her mundane life, and back into
a life that she wanted to forget. Calling apon people that she wished
she did not have to. Doing everything to keep herself alive and get to
the bottom of the murder.
THis book will keep you turning the pages until the end and when you think you have it figured out, you get to guess again.
This book gets my highest rating. I look forward to the next two in the series.
