Praise

Praise for the October Daye series

A two-time Hugo Award-nominated series

“The top of my urban-paranormal series list! I am so invested in the worldbuilding and the characters…. The romance is real and awesome, but doesn’t overshadow the adventure.” —Felicia Day

Everything you’d ever need in an urban fantasy. It’s a smart story, cleanly told that allows both humor and heartbreak to take their turn on stage.” —Tanya Huff, author of An Ancient Peace

Rosemary and Rue is one of the most successful blends of mystery and fantasy I’ve ever read—like Raymond Chandler by way of Pamela Dean.” —Tim Pratt, author of Dead Reign

“McGuire knows her fairy lore, bringing the wonder and the danger of the fair folk to the streets of San Francisco so vividly you can smell the rose goblins.” —Jim C. Hines, author of Libriomancer

“Toby’s combination of pragmatic heroism and relentless self-destruction makes her a compelling heroine in a secret folklore-filled world that still feels fresh and dangerous after all this time.” —Publishers Weekly

An incredible mix of action, mystery, fairy, urban fantasy, and just a smidgen of romance artfully woven into a story impossible to put down.” —Sacramento Book Review

“I can’t believe McGuire can come up with another adventure as riveting as this one. But then I say that after every book in this series.” —SFRevu

“McGuire has never lacked for courage in her writing…. The phenomenally inventive October Daye series showcases her narrative daring and ingenuity beautifully.” —RT Reviews

“Prepare to be dazzled…. Like the best of urban fantasy, with each reveal and mystery solved, Toby’s world grows ever more enticing. As seductive as faerie itself, this is one series I could never give up.” —All Things Urban Fantasy

“These books are like watching half a season of your favorite television series all at once…. More than anything else, it’s the fun of it all that’s kept me returning to McGuire’s books and to this series.” —SF Signal 

“The plot is strong, the characterization is terrific, the tragedies hurt…and McGuire’s usual beautiful writing and dark humor are present and accounted for. This has become one of my favorite urban fantasy series.” —Fantasy Literature

“An urban fantasy detective series featuring a resourceful female detective…. [October Daye] should appeal to fans of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files as well as the novels of Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, and similar authors.” —Library Journal
