Why this book?:
It's part of a series I'm caught up in.
Toby is required to be at a gathering of all the North American reigning figures of the Faerie beings as they debate whether an antidote to a poison that send fairies to sleep for 100 years and kills humans and those of mixed blood should be used. She's not fond of politics, but it's necessary. Along the way, though, some powerful people have been killed or poisoned, and Toby is left trying to figure out who is going around killing people - all while staying alive herself and keeping all-out war among the Fey kind from breaking out.
Toby has grown throughout this series, and while it hasn't been without hardship and loss, she is getting better and better and maneuvering and coming out on top. The only problem is, she's also getting in pretty deep with a powerful figure and you can't help but feel that it's all going to catch up with her rather soon. I look forward to more in this series...
