This review is from: One Salt Sea (October Daye Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)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.
