Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
October "Toby" Daye: half fae, half human, all annoying. Toby was just a very unlikeable character. It's not that she was a bad person, or evil, or anything like that. I just didn't like her, and couldn't bring myself to care about what happens to her. By the end of the book I didn't feel like I knew her at all. However, I did enjoy the world in which the story takes place: magical elements hidden in modern day San Francisco.
I was very disappointed in this, probably because I knew who the culprit was as soon as they were introduced.
