Toby Daye is still recovering from her ordeal, and getting used to being back in the human world, as well as her home within Faerie. Her liege asks her to check on his niece, but it turns out to be nowhere near that simple when Toby turns up to the County of Tamed Lightening. Well written, a story packed with twists and action and drama. Read ‘Rosemary and Rue’ first, it's much easier to pick up on the subtle hints in the text.


Toby Daye - a half-human, half-fae changeling - has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a normal life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas. Now her liege, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, has asked Toby to go to the County of Tamed Lightning to make sure all is well with his niece. It seems like a simple assignment - until Toby discovers that someone has been murdering those closest to her and that if the killer isn't stopped, the niece may be the next victim.

Author Biography

Seanan McGuire is a California-based author with a strong penchant for travel and can regularly be found just about anyplace capable of supporting human life (as well as a few places that probably aren't). Early exposure to a vast number of books left her with a lifelong affection for the written word, and led, perhaps inevitably, to her writing books of her own, starting somewhere around the age of eleven. The October Daye novels are her first urban fantasy series, and the InCryptid novels are her second series, both published by DAW and bother of which have put her in the New York Times bestseller list. Seanan was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer; Rosemary and Rue, the first novel in the October Daye series, was named one of the Top 20 Paranormal Fantasy Novels of the Past Decade; and her novel Feed, written under the name Mira Grant, was named as one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2010. She also won a Hugo for her podcast, and is the first person to be nominated for five Hugo Awards in a single year. You can visit her at
