ONE SALT SEA review roundup.

It's December now (how did that happen?), and the links are out of control, so here are some reviews of One Salt Sea. People seem to like it. I'm very glad.

Fang-tastic Fiction has posted a review of One Salt Sea (you'll have to scroll down the page to find it), and says, "This is another strong book in an excellent series. McGuire's world building continues to be highly developed and consistent as she takes Toby through another story that is filled, as always, with action, tragedy, and love. McGuire tells Toby's story through a first person point of view, and she does it beautifully. The narrative and the dialogue are natural, graceful, and realistic." Rockin'!

Chicks With Crossbows (which may be my favorite blog title this month) has posted a review of One Salt Sea, and says, "One Salt Sea by Seanan McGuire is the newest October Daye novel and the best yet. This is because—as with most series—now I'm not just familiar with most of the characters, I am invested in their happiness and well-being. And more than a little concerned about Toby’s rampant caffeine addiction. Don't get me wrong, I live on coffee (and vodka), but Toby makes me look a decaf drinker." If Toby ever goes cold turkey, watch out...

Mervi has posted a review of One Salt Sea, and says, "Secrets are reveled, hard choices are made, and there are hints for future events. Once again, Toby's life changes. The final chapter is especially poignant." (Review of the audio edition.)

My Bookish Ways has posted a review of One Salt Sea, and says, "As always, the author uses rich mythology and charming characters to wonderful effect in her fae universe, and I’ll certainly be there for Toby's next adventure." There's also a giveaway running at this site, open through December 6th!

Finally for today, Fantasy Fiction has posted a review of One Salt Sea, and says, "Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The October Daye series has swiftly become one of my favorites; another one to read when I want to go back and visit with an old friend. Toby and her companions are quite realistic, and I can’t wait for the next book to find out what is going to happen next."

And that, for the moment, is that.
