Now comes the second in the series-from a dynamic new fantasy talent! Toby Daye-a half-human, half-fae changeling-has been an outsider from birth. After getting burned by both sides of her heritage, Toby has denied the fae world, retreating to a "normal" life. Unfortunately for her, the Faerie world had other ideas...

It seems like a simple enough assignment-until Toby discovers that someone has begun murdering people close to January, and that if the killer isn't stopped, January may be the next victim.

Tough one to review, this one. I liked the story, the characters and they mystery but I think it was too fat. Could have been much leaner. I have the same problem I had with Toby in the 1st book - she seems too young for her supposed age. There's a lot of repetition as some other reviewers have ...
