The best books you never read

I am both a reader and a writer. I find that the best writers are in fact avid readers. I love books of all kinds but I really adore reading new authors who are just getting their feet wet. Some of the very best writers are now found in the indie set. These reviews will be of books I have devoured in my never ending quest for good fiction. Some will be up and comers who have hit the top of the chart, but most will be struggling new writers who deserve a second look.

Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire

Rosemary and Rue - Seanan McGuire

Recently I was reminded of this fine author by a friend of mine. He kept pushing me to re-read this book and i am glad I did.


Toby is a half Fae living under the radar, so to speak. Burned by both sides of her heritage, she is really just existing. Going from work to home and back again with little contact with anyone at all. When an old Friend and Mentor is murdered, Toby is pulled back into a world that she turned her back on.


Sounds interesting right? Well you would be right. Much in the flavor of a lot of the half fae books being written we have a strong character who has gone through too much to trust the bloodlines that she comes from. The fact that she previously spent a decades as a Koi in a pond should give you an idea how little she wants to be brought back into the world of Fae politics and intrigue. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
