A Local Habitation

A Local Habitation (October Daye, #2)A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

 

“Toby Daye-a half-human, half-fae changeling-has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a “normal” life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas…”

“Now her liege, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills, has asked Toby to go to the Country of Tamed Lightening to make sure all is well with his niece, Countess January O’Leary. It seems like a simple enough assignment-until Toby discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, and that if the killer isn’t stopped, January may be the next victim.”

I love this series. This book was a quick read. Full of action and drama, I really enjoyed it and cannot wait to get the next book in the series. The ending was full of promises for the next book which looks to start digging into October’s past and family history.

This book was full of the tension between half bloods and pure bloods in the Fairy realm and how they have no real place to live. They are rejected by the pure bloods, unable to live with the full humans, most are rejected by both sides of their families simply by how much or how little magic they have in their blood. How can someone who is taught to hate themselves be able to live a happy life?
