Format: Mass Market Paperback
The fifth book in October Daye series, One Salt Sea, picks up one month after the events of book four, Late Eclipses. Someone has kidnapped the children of the Duchess of the undersea courts of Saltmist. Toby only has three days to find the kids, and in doing so, clear her Queen's name and stave off a war between the land and sea Fae.

One of the things I love about this series is the incredibly detailed worldbuilding. I've read many series involving the Fae but this one seems particularly vivid and vibrant to me. Perhaps because in this one they are the only focus - we are not distracted by having to learn of other races, vamps, werewolves, etc. And incredibly, the worldbuilding in One Salt Sea is even more expansive than in most of the previous novels, largely due to the introduction of a new realm: Saltmist, home of the undersea Fae.

I'll be honest, I was slightly dubious about this upon reading the summary. I've seen many books featuring mer-people and other sea-dwelling folk and always thought "hmm, how does that work then?", and never bothered with them. Since this is the continuation of one of my now favourite series, not reading this particular undersea adventure wasn't even a possibility. And how wrong I had been to dismiss books based on my own preconceptions. McGuire made me feel like I, too, was diving into the big deep blue for the first time. It was fascinating. Although I'm glad it wasn't this setting for the majority of the book, as I would have severely missed my landlubbers had I been denied access to them for too long.

Speaking of which, the full gang was out in force in this one, with equal time dedicated to all of my favourite characters.

Seanan is doing a great job with the Toby Daye series. Here we have a character who grows with each novel, making believable changes as events impact her. This has to be something almost unique in fantasy, and especially in modern urban fantasy.

The author has created a very original "fae" type world, with some great ideas behind it - techno-druids being one of the most minor examples that sparkles on the page. A lot moves forward in this book for the overall series, as we learn things about Toby, her mother, her fetch, and other players, setting the scene for the next, and possibly last, book in the series.

For some strange reason this series hasn't really taken off in popularity, which I find very perplexing. So if you read any of the current batch of modern urban fantasy by female authors, or even if you haven't, try this - the story telling and characterisation and quality is really great: you'll thank me for it.

The sons of the Duchess of Saltmist have been kidnapped, and usual it's October Daye who is called upon to rescue them. The stakes are very high; if Toby doesn't find the boys, her country is going to go to war with those under the sea. To make the situation even more complicated, she's finally gotten together with Connor, a Selkie, and they may be forever separated if she doesn't succeed in her mission. With her many allies by her side, Toby sets out to find the kidnapper, even when those she holds most dear are threatened.

This particular book is a turning point for Toby - she is not the same woman at the end of the book as she was at the start of it. Several storylines that have been building over the course of the last few books - if not since the start of the series - actually see a resolution, and with devastating effect. Some of the things that happen to her are gut-wrenching, and the world really isn't going to be the same. She isn't even the same herself; thanks to the changes which took effect in the last book, Toby is still getting to grips with her own changed identity and magic.

The mythology and backstory of all of the characters continues to grow and change in this book. I loved learning more about the Luidaeg in particular, who finally starts to be revealed in this book, and who is becoming much more than an all-powerful sea witch. We also get bits and pieces about the other characters.

I think my only problem with the book really was that I don't like Connor very much. The entire time, I was busy rooting for Toby to finally realize that it's actually Tybalt she loves, which as you can imagine lessened the impact of parts of the book for me.

Book 5 in the fabulously clever, warm, exciting, witty October Daye series. I have a few favourite urban fantasy authors; Kate Daniels, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter and Seanan McGuire. The other night I was trying to work out which of their characters I'd like to be and I decided I'd want to be Toby Daye. I've read and re-read all of the books in this series and they bring me something new every time. For instance, I read this when it first came out in 2011 and I was a little disappointed with it because at first I thought it lacked a bit of focus (and maybe I was a wee bit sad about Toby's love interest!), so I read it again this weekend and I loved it. I found myself rushing home from a party just so I could continue reading it and being immersed in Toby's world. I found it so strong that I re-read the last few chapters again after I'd finished because I didn't want to let it go, and I've been thinking about it ever since.

In this book, the Luidaeg calls on Toby for help after the sons of The Duchy of Saltmist are kidnapped. All of our favourite characters are there; Toby, May, The Luidaeg, Danny, Sylvester, Quentin, Connor and of course Tybalt and his nephew Raj. I was so pleased that Raj got 'involved' in this story as it's so good to have more interaction with the court of cats. The little gang is so well written, they work so well together and Toby and her little family of friends come alive on every page.

I won't spoil, but I was really pleased to see more of Tybalt in this book - I know that sounds a bit fan-girly, but Tybalt is such a good character. Perhaps it's because Seanan is such a cat lover that she writes the Court of Cats so well.

Even with my slight niggles with this book, it's still worth every one of it's 5 stars.
