Launch Day – A Local Habitation by Seanan McGuire

Ladies and Gents, Tobey Daye is back! 🙂

A Local Habitation is the second book in the October Daye series from Seanan McGuire, featuring October ‘Tobey’ Daye, one of the most interesting characters in fiction, not to mention Urban Fantasy. 🙂 I was lucky enough to have received the first Tobey Daye novel, Rosemary and Rue (reviewed here) from Seanan 🙂 and yesterday my copy of A Local Habitation arrived (also from Seanan) so I’ll be reviewing it soon. 🙂

Why read Rosemary and Rue, and A Local Habitation? Tobey is such a cool character (being a Changling and a Private Investigator-type), for one, and the world that she reveals to us (San Fransisco and the worlds of the Fae) is fantastically realized! If you’re looking for an excellent mystery, very cool magic, fantastic creatures and a heroine to admire and cheer, then A Local Habitation and Seanan McGuire is just the thing for you! 🙂

Order your copies here, and for those in the UK, the book will be available on the 8th of April, so pre-order your copies here. 🙂 For those of you in South Africa, head over to your closest Exclusive Books and, if they’re struggling to find the book to order it, give them this info: ISBN 978075640596 and tell them they can order it from Ingrams. 🙂 Here are the details for Rosemary and Rue for you, too: ISBN 9780756405717 also from Ingrams. 🙂

For those lucky enough to be in the US, Seanan will be touring to promote the book, so head over to her website and check out where she’ll be appearing. 🙂

A Local Habitation will be followed up with An Artificial Night in September of this year (2010 already, in case you’re a bit behind ;-)), and here’s the great cover (all three covers have been done by Chris McGrath – I hope he does them all! :-)):

Congrats to Seanan on Launch Day! 🙂
