Seanan McGuire writes the October Daye urban fantasies and I like them a lot. I hadn’t read any of her InCryptid books…until now.
In Pocket Apocalypse, Alexander Price, cryptozoologist, goes from Ohio to Australia, land of koalas, kookaburras, kangaroos, snakes, parrots crossed with Tasmanian Devils, bunyips, drop bears, naked swamp giants, and…werewolves?
If someone turned you into a fish for fourteen years, it would be hard to forgive them. October (Toby) Daye, a part-human changeling, can’t forgive Simon for transforming her all those years ago, even if they are sort-of related.
Goblin fruit. It gives Faeries pleasant dreams, but it hooks humans and changelings with an addiction to fantasies that spirals down to death, and October “Toby” Day finds out that a lot of changelings are dying, but the Queen of the Mists won’t intervene. In fact, the monarch banishes her for bringing up the subject. Now, Toby has three days to change that decree…even if it means overthrowing the Queen…in Seanan McGuire’s Chimes at Midnight.
