One Salt Sea
by Seanan McGuire
Daw, $7.99, 354pp
Release Date: September 6, 2011

This is the fifth October [Toby] Daye novel.

Toby is doing okay. Now she is the Countess of Goldengreen, and she is dating again. She has acquired a squire officially and that means everything is going to go wrong.

Someone has kidnapped the sons of the regent of Saltmist. To avoid a war between land and sea, Toby must not only find the boys, but prove the Queen of Mists, who hates her, is not behind the abduction. Toby will need all her skills and allies just to survive. She has three days to find the boys and the culprit, but someone is determined to stop her and they are not abiding by Oberon's Laws.

Move over Charlaine Harris and Jim Butcher. Here we have a self-reliant heroine caught up in a world of Fae and Human conflict that provides all the action you can want, and a beautifully described world peopled by well-researched and written characters and plotting. The author has created a new fan who will shop for the others in the series. This is a must have series for lovers of Urban Fantasy. ~~ Pam Allan
