Review

"A refreshingly original story told in a wry, confident voice." -- Kelley Armstrong

Rosemary and Rue is "A Treat to Read." -- Kelley Armstrong

"Will surely appeal to readers who enjoy my books, or those of Patricia Briggs." -- Charlaine Harris

"McGuire's second "October Daye" novel is a gripping, well-paced read. Toby continues to be an enjoyable, if complex and strong-willed protagonist who recognizes no authority but her own...McGuire has more than a few surprises up her sleeve for the reader." Romantic Times Book Review
..".for those of you who have read "Rosemary and Rue," I have to say: "A Local Habitation" is even better. All the things that made "Rosemary and Rue" such a strong debut are still there: the wonderfully damaged heroine, the melancholy story, the gritty details, the perfect rendering of San Francisco, [and] unique and varied fantastic creatures..." Book Love Affair
Praise for the series:
"At last, urban fantasy done right!...Seanan McGuire's "October Daye" series gives us that perfect melding of "real world" and magic, with just a dash of romantic subplot, enhancing the main story rather than derailing it." Collectortimes.com"
