The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerieâs survivalâbut no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations. Or, in the case of October âTobyâ Daye, rejecting it completely. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating into a ânormalâ life. Unfortunately for her, Faerie has other ideas.
The murder of Countess Evening Winterrose, one of the secret regents of the San Francisco Bay Area, pulls Toby back into the fae world. Unable to resist Eveningâs dying curse, which binds her to investigate, Toby is forced to resume her old position as knight errant to the Duke of Shadowed Hills and begin renewing old alliances that may prove her only hope of solving the mysteryâ¦before the curse catches up with her.
â[O]ne of the most successful blends of mystery and fantasy Iâve ever readâlike Raymond Chandler by way of Pamela Dean. Toby Daye has become one of my favorite heroines, and I canât wait to read more of her continuing adventures.â âT. A. Pratt, author of Dead Reign
