Once Broken Faith - Seanan McGuire

Politics have never been October “Toby” Daye’s strong suit. When she traveled to the Kingdom of Silences to prevent them from going to war with her home, the Kingdom of the Mists, she wasn’t expecting to return with a cure for elf-shot and a whole new set of political headaches. 

Now the events she unwittingly set in motion could change the balance of modern Faerie forever, and she has been ordered to appear before a historic convocation of monarchs, hosted by Queen Windermere in the Mists and overseen by the High King and Queen themselves.

Naturally, things have barely gotten underway when the first dead body shows up. As the only changeling in attendance, Toby is already the target of suspicion and hostility. Now she needs to find a killer before they can strike again—and with the doors locked to keep the guilty from escaping, no one is safe.

As danger draws ever closer to her allies and the people she loves best, Toby will have to race against time to prevent the total political destabilization of the West Coast and to get the convocation back on track…and if she fails, the cure for elf-shot may be buried forever, along with the victims she was too slow to save.

My thoughts:
I do love these, and they are still good. Of course, I do want them to end soon cos I fear that it will go down like so many other series, but before that....

Time for the nobles to gather and talk about the cure for Elf-shot. And Toby has to be there cos she does have a hand in a lot.

There will be dangers as not everyone wants the cure to be around. A bit of heartache and the usual Toby adventures as she tries to find answers.

I really do not have a lot to say. It is book 10, I have said it all before...

Conclusion:
Another good addition to the series. I look forward to the next one.

  1. 10 books in and still good, that's wonderful. I know exactly what you mean about series that hang around too long. I worry about that with some of my favorite series. I do need to try this author under this pen name. I've read her work as Mira Grant.

  3. Heh. I'm at this point with the Elemental Assassin book - we're in the double digits now and I've reviewed them all, so it's hard to find new things to say about a series I love!

    1. It does not have to, I have read crappy b ooks 10s, that is why I am always afraid when they keep going. That they might lose steam

  13. Sometimes I agree it is hard to keep reviewing a series as there is so much similarity.

  14. Yes, I suppose it is tough to find new things to say about a solid series like this. But glad it is still going strong for you. I still haven't started this one, yet.
