What Members Thought

**edited 12/04/13

When I started the story, I was absolutely thrilled. The prose and the world itself had the feel of a Loreena McKennitt album: dreamy, full of old world music, but with a fully new age tone. The main character, Toby, is on the track of mysterious kidnappers who capture and enchant her for 14 years. Finally escaping her bonds, she returns to an alien world and must again find her place in it. If that is not enough, an old sometime-friend-sometime-enemy is murdered and forces Toby...more
3.5, but probably closer to 4 stars, so definitely rounding up here.

i think i'm going to end up starting every review of a new series the same way here: there's a lot of filler crap on the UF bookshelf, so it's nice to find something that's not a rehash of something else you've already read or head-scratchingly silly. our heroine this go-around is a part-sidhe "changeling", called on by an old acquaintance to solve a murder; sleuthing ensues, as is somewhat standard in this genre. october is a m...more

Hmmm... Not sure how to review or even rate this book. While I enjoyed the premise, even the city it was taking place in, I never connected to Toby. I still don't understand how a faerie that is knighted and previously made a living as a detective could be so vulnerable and well.... useless. It seemed to me that others were doing the fighting, the rescuing, even the thinking and if it wasn't for them she would've never made it. She was willing to give up on more than 2 occasions. If someone if s...more
This book was really well done. I didn't see the end coming, and it kept me on my toes. I can definitely say that I will be tempted to buy the next book as soon as possible. The book was clever, entertaining, and kept me reading. I think some things probably could have been better discribed, or more thoroughly addressed, but overall a really good read.
This book was just okay for me. Not great, not bad, just okay. For one thing, the main character's "voice" was annoying somehow. Rather whinny and weak. She didn't solve the case by using her brains. "Things" just happen to her and she just seems to stumble onto situations. I don't think I'll be reading the others in the series.

Original characters, witty voice, a good balance of action and introspection. My new favorite series. :)
