Not sure why Seanan abandoned Verity or has decided to write as a man rather than a woman. The book flows nicely I just had trouble believing the male voice. True, Verity has a bit of growing up to do. But all in all a nice quick read.

Definitely stronger then the first book, there are still more details -- mostly in the technical world of ALH -- that I would have liked in this book. However, I'm guessing that Seanan McGuire is not a computer programmer, so she may not be blamed for the 'how does this blend into Faerie' computer gobleydegook that I would have liked added.

The twists were better, (though I knew something was up with the siblings immediately; I wasn't surprised by what they turned out to be) and better spaced. I read this book over the space of a day, just like I did the first one, but this one held me much better.

To say that I like them is easy; I do. I think they can be better, maybe. But so far they're pretty good. Enjoyable, if not earth-breaking fiction, but really-- not a lot of writers DO earth-breaking fiction. Either way, after the first I bought the next three in the series and over my sick-day at home, read the entirety of the second book. I am currently headed to bed where my husband is reading the first Toby Daye novel, and I'm considering cracking open the third.

But as I have an 8am class, that's probably unwise. Those books tend to sneak up on you. I kept trying to find a good place to set it down and do other things, but the mystery did keep niggling at me. I had part of it, but I needed the rest.

A good sign. I see only room for improvement, and have hopes that the next two can reach a five start status.

This is no "Dresden Files", but this shows potential - there's intrigue, a little romance without it being overbearing as female-lead Urban Fantasy sometimes gets to be - and an interesting world. I'll probably pick up the next few books and follow along.

Honestly, I think this could have stood further fleshing out, but I'm at a loss to say specifically. Maybe elaborations on relationships, court set ups, and so forth. An idea of the world that Toby walks alongside as she tries to balance out mortal and faerie. But perhaps in the next few books we'll get more to feed that appetite. I'll be picking up the next two this weekend in all likelihood; engaging enough for me to want more, but -- I was 'wanting more' from this book, too, so it doesn't quite rank four stars.… (mais)

This is the first book from Seanan McGuire that I have not liked, not one little bit. I've loved works by both McGuire and Grant, but this has not lived up to the standards set by her other works. The only telltale McGuire trait is the worldbuilding being rich with beasties and monsters, with excellent details given, but after that... everything falls flat.

To begin, we are given a cast straight out of some of the worst parts of Urban Fantasy. Verity Price, who has nothing positive to say about much of anything, and Dominic De Luca, the trope-laden Catholic Italian swarthy love interest who is a stereotype from top to bottom. Things we hear about way too much: Verity's loathing of her job, Verity's desire to embrace her passion despite being a member of a hunted group of rogue cryptid hunters (putting herself and her family at risk to follow her dreams), how much she doesn't like her more-aggressive sister Antimony, and her weird family business when it doesn't relate to the plot. These characters are all paper thin and none of them get fleshed out beyond their barebones archetypes, and very few of them are even likable. The only one vaguely likable with a hint of an inner life is Sarah, and she feels like she's there because a telepath was needed for plotpoints.

The rest of the book is something straight out of a Buffy The Vampire Slayer script bible. If you are a long-time fan of the genre, you have read this book already. You have watched this show already. This brings nothing new to the table, and what it does bring to the table is stale bread and a glass of water. I am so deeply disappointed because it's candyfloss fluff, but it's not even good candyfloss. It's empty air where a much better book should have been. I know this, because I know Seanan can absolutely do better than this and right now I'm confused as to why she didn't.

Either way: 1/5, would probably .5 if I could give it, and that's only because it does have well thought out magical world and history... but if I wanted to read a book only to enjoy intricate worldbuilding, I would have picked up a Sanderson novel.
