If you are looking for a good read, check out Seanan McGuire. Her faerie urban fantasy is very believable and well thought out. Seanan's first book, Rosemary and Rue, came out last year and introduced us to Toby, a half-fae changeling who is forced to solve the murder of one of her friends. Toby spends a lot of the book getting beat up, but is still a strong character and someone that I wanted to know more about.

Seanan's second book, A Local Habitation, is really close to official release date (Mar 1 or thereabout), but copies are starting to show up in various book stores. I scored one yesterday and lost most of the rest of the day devouring it. This book uses the "group of people locked in a building and one of them is a murderer" general outline. Even though I had a pretty good guess about who dunnit, I kept second guessing myself as new twists happened. And there were surprises all the way up until the climax. I enjoyed it so much that it was really, really hard to put it down when it was bed time! I couldn't wait until I got to a point in my day today when I could (finally!) finish the book.

You don't have to have read Rosemary and Rue to enjoy A Local Habitation, but there are a bunch of things will make more sense if you have.

Go forth! Read and enjoy!
