About book Rosemary And Rue (2009)

I tried. I really did try to get into the story and finish the book but I just couldn't do it. I ended up stopping at Chapter 9. Honestly this book moved really slowly for me. I would just end up flipping page after page and just skipping the long paragraphs. I started this book because it showed up in the similar books list after I read the Kate Daniels and Mercy Thompson series but it didn't capture my attention the way the others did. It may get better later in the book but I'm sorry to say I'm not compelled to read that far. It wasn't the worst book I've ever read but I wouldn't recommend it. 2.5 A fantasy murder mystery, but there's not much detective work going on here. October Daye, a "changeling" (half human, half fae) is cursed by her frenemy Evening to discover her murderer for she will die. Toby's been reluctant to become involved in anything to do with the fae word since spending fourteen years as a fish, cursed by the bad guy she's been hired to track down (she once worked as a detective). But the curse demands that she investigate, so investigate she does. Or at least she goes to a bunch of different fae locales, usually getting attacked and beat up long before she can discover any real clues about Evening's murder. Only at the climax does any true information about the whys and wherefores of the killing come to light, and Toby gets to do to the bad guy what the bad guy's been having done to her all throughout the book.The fantasy/fae world McGuire creates is a fascinating one, and she sets up lots of potential romance partners for Toby for future volumes, so I wouldn't be surprised if later books in the series end up being stronger than this first one. Worth giving #2 a try, in any case.

What can I say, I enjoyed every minute of it.
