A red-rose chain - Seanan McGuire

Things are looking up. For the first time in what feels like years, October “Toby” Daye has been able to pause long enough to take a breath and look at her life—and she likes what she sees. She has friends. She has allies. She has a squire to train and a King of Cats to love, and maybe, just maybe, she can let her guard down for a change.

Or not. When Queen Windermere’s seneschal is elf-shot and thrown into an enchanted sleep by agents from the neighboring Kingdom of Silences, Toby finds herself in a role she never expected to play: that of a diplomat. She must travel to Portland, Oregon, to convince King Rhys of Silences not to go to war against the Mists. But nothing is that simple, and what October finds in Silences is worse than she would ever have imagined.

How far will Toby go when lives are on the line, and when allies both old and new are threatened by a force she had never expected to face again? How much is October willing to give up, and how much is she willing to change? In Faerie, what’s past is never really gone.

It’s just waiting for an opportunity to pounce. 

My thoughts:
I still devour these in a day. I got home, I opened my parcel and started to read. I did not put it down until I was done.

An old bitch is back. And Silence has declared war on Mist. Ugh, King Rhys was a real piece. I wanted to kick him where it hurts.

Toby gets sent to his court to broker a peace deal. HA. Yes you who know her know that is the worst idea. She knows it's a bad idea, everyone know it's a bad idea. But she does her best, together with Quentin, May and Tybalt (still adore him, does he get better with each book? Awwww)

There will be drama, action, and lots of blood. Lots of blood. I do not really have a lot to say. I love this series. It's fun and Toby is awesome.

Conclusion:
A year until the next book, sigh.

  9. Ah, I've only read the first book of this series. Glad to hear it's good! UF is the worst when it comes to waiting, isn't it? They're so fast to read, and it's usually a year until the next book.
