"Well researched, sharply told, highly atmospheric and as brutal as any pulp detective tale..." "Publishers Weekly" October "Toby" Daye is a changeling, the daughter of Amandine of the fae and a mortal man. Like her mother, she is gifted in blood magic, able to read what has happened to a person through a mere taste of blood. Toby is the only changeling who has earned knighthood, and she re-earns that position every day, undertaking assignments for her liege, Sylvester, the Duke of the Shadowed Hills. Now Sylvester has asked her to go to the County of Tamed Lightning otherwise known as Fremont, CA to make sure that all is well with his niece, Countess January O'Leary, whom he has not been able to contact. It seems like a simple enough assignment but when dealing with the realm of Faerie nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Toby soon discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, whose domain is a buffer between Sylvester's realm and a scheming rival duchy. If Toby can't find the killer soon, she may well become the next victim. "Local Habitation" is the second installment of the highly praised "Toby Daye" series."

Saw Seanan McGuire, and just listened to Peter Brennan. Am not sure who I want to see at4- too many choices. Thanks @tpixie for helping me try and locate other Littens!

tpixie Yay!!!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️ there‘s so much to choose from but no matter what it‘ll be great! You could even check out the kids authors downstairs — sometimes they‘re real fun and always easy to get into! The ones I saw were very animated lecturers 3mo

I have a problem. I'm an Urban Fantasy Girl and I don't like the Fae 🙈 For years, every plot summary I read that stated the Fae were involved, I'd put the book down. Seanan Mcguire is my idol but I've avoided October Daye. When I got round to reading Rosemary and Rue, I thought it was just OK. This one on the other hand, I actually got invested! I'm now onto book 3. I think it might actually help me with my issues with Fae!

Re-read to get back into this world. I think this book has a bit of a flabby middle, in retrospect; it's my wife's least favourite and I can agree with that. Still fun, though: I enjoy the concept of a Dryad living in a server particularly much.

First book finished in 2019 (even if started in 2018)!

Good world building, though a bit of a frustrating mystery. I solved part but not all of it. I do like the Toby Daye characters and will be reading more.
3.5-4⭐

Really enjoyed this second October Daye novel! The action, the Fae, the character growth...and I actually managed to correctly guess a reveal, which almost never happens! Can‘t wait to read the third book!

The second book the the October Daye series. Just as good, if not more engaging than the first book. I accidentally stayed up until 3am to read "just one more chapter" (i.e. 10-15 not chapters). Looking forward to sharing the next book in the series.

When you read as many books as I do, sometimes it's hard to feel genuine excitement about a series. Not so with October Daye! These books are 🔥🔥🔥

In this second installment, we follow Toby while she tries to solve a series of murders for her Liege. While some say this should have been an easy solvable case for Toby, I say that I think the Author did a fantastic job running us in circles; trying to figure out who the killer was. These books are such a pleasure to read, and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!
