The newest fantasy adventure in the New York Times bestselling Toby Daye novels.

The cure for elf-shot has been discovered. The sleepers of Faerie can finally be awoken…if the Kings and Queens of Faerie will approve it. With vast changes on the horizon, High King Aethlin Sollys of the Westlands has called a grand convocation where the monarchs of his demesne will discuss the cure. Naturally, Toby has been ordered to attend. And naturally, once she shows up, people start dying—beginning with King Anthony Robinson of Angels, the Kingdom to the South, and a known political dissenter.

To secure both her own future and the distribution of the elf-shot cure, Toby must solve the murder, clear her own name, and figure out who would use a convocation of royals for their own ends.

If I had to use two words to describe Once Broken Faith it would be Absolutely Stupendous!

This series just keeps getting better and better. The character’s evolutions throughout have been simply marvelous but add in the phenomenal world building that completely sucks the reader in and you have one of the best paranormal urban fantasy out there.

Now for a little bit about this book…

Toby is asked/ordered to attend a convocation of all the rulers to debate whether the cure for elf-shot should be used to wake up the sleepers. High King Aethlin as well as Queen Arden will oversee this meeting of the rulers.

Just when you thought Toby would find a modicum of happiness, the ploys of the fae twist it up and spit their venom in the way. It seems the fae can’t be happy with the status quo but must find a way to muck up the world for their own agendas leaving Toby and gang to save the day once again. Of course when machinations abound, Toby, with her lack of court intrigue, must figure out who is out to get them before it is too late. Toby has learned to lean on her friends but her closes ally, the King of the Cats, must hold himself separate from Toby for the good of his own people making her task even more difficult.

Simply Amazing storytelling, Seanan McGurie writes a spellbinding fae adventure of love, intrigue, power and friendship that captivates as well as leaves us with a book hangover pondering the what ifs to come.

I received this ARC copy from Berkley Publishing Group - DAW in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Sept. 6, 2016.
