Review: One Salt Sea - Seanan McGuire

One Salt Sea - Seanan McGuire
October "Toby" Daye is settling into her new role as Countess of Goldengreen. She's actually dating again, and she's taken on Quentin as her squire. So, of course, it's time for things to take a turn for the worse.
Someone has kidnapped the sons of the regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist. To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must find the missing boys and prove the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves, and her deadline is firm: she must find the boys in three days' time, or all of the Mists will pay the price. But someone is determined to stop her-and whoever it is isn't playing by Oberon's Laws...

My thoughts:
I am still loving this series. Toby was as kick-ass as usual and Tybalt, well I love cats! And the scene where he was on the car seat as a cat, lol, yes she should take him on.

The action was ever present as always. War is brewing and she needs to find missing kids. Danger, the sea witch, "mermaids", and dealing with her new life after finding out what her mum really is. Not to mention flirting and kissing with Connor now when he is not with that horrid wife of his. The wife I swore over in the last book as she is diabolical. But as for Connor as a person, eh, no team Connor for me. I want the kitty!

Conclusion:
I have said all the same things before so I will not make this long. At the end I wanted book 6 at once! It did not end with a cliffie but I just crave more as this series keeps on being strong.

  1. Yay for the series continuing to be strong - looks like it's hitting the numbers at which many series sort of run out of steam.

    It's hot and sticky and icky here. Blech.

    2. Some authors can manage that! :) I HIGHLY recommend an m/m series called PsyCop by Jordan Castillo Price. SOOOO good. I've read the entire series at least three times and am waiting impatiently for the 7th book. The books have just been getting stronger and stronger.
