A Red-Rose Chain by Seanan McGuire

red rose chainRating: 4.5 stars

Series: October Daye #9

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this knowing that it took place in a different setting, but it did not disappoint. Toby was on another mission to save the day, but since she was acting as a diplomat, it didn’t have quite as much action. That was a good thing though. It gave her more time to interact with her friends who went on the mission with her.

I loved it that Tybalt was with her for almost the entire book! They had the chance to interact like a normal couple at least some of the time. Being away meant he didn’t have to rush back to deal with Cait Sidhe issues all the time. Tybalt is brilliant. He can talk about the most mundane things and makes them sound fascinating.

The king in the Kingdom of Silences made the old Queen of the Mists seem less evil. This kingdom was not a pleasant place to be for purebloods or changelings. It was fascinating to see the darker side of faerie. An interesting piece of information was learned about the old queen. It makes me wonder more than ever who she really is and how will it impact Toby when it is revealed.

Although this wasn’t my favorite or the most entertaining book in the series, I was left pondering how the events of this book will affect the future ones. Toby has made a fairly large impact on faerie. Although she gains more and more friends, she must be gaining more enemies as well.
