Toby Daye is not your average fae - she's responsible to her Duke and the Lady of the Mists to handle problems in the realm. The kidnapping of two boys from Under the Sea threatens war between the realms, and it's up to Toby to find the boys - within a three-day deadline. Toby's transformation in order to visit under the sea is a unique twist and the resulting kidnapper makes sense if you've read the prior books. Altogether, these books are great and offer unusual takes on "fairies" and the "fairy world." More than anything, I love the relationship between Toby and the King of the Cats - that relationship is one fraught with tension and desire perfectly balanced. I'd like to see more of it in future books!

I must say that this novel was every bit as amazing as all the others. This is definitely one of my favorite authors. If you loved the previous books then you must read this one. A fresh new take on the fae world.
October "Toby" Daye is finally doing all right—and that inevitably means it's time for things to take a turn for the worse. Someone has kidnapped the sons of the Duchess Dianda Lorden, regent of the Undersea Duchy of Saltmist. To prevent a war between land and sea, Toby must not only find the missing boys, but also prove that the Queen of the Mists was not behind their abduction. She'll need all her tricks and the help of her allies if she wants to make it through this in one piece.
Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves. But someone is determined to stop her—and whoever it is isn't playing by Oberon's Laws. As the battle grows more and more personal, one thing is chillingly clear. When Faerie goes to war, not everyone will walk away. One Salt Sea is the fifth installment of the highly praised Toby Daye series.
October "Toby" Daye is settling into her new role as Countess of Goldengreen. She's actually dating again, and she's taken on Quentin as her squire. So, of course, it's time for things to take a turn for the worse.

Toby's search will take her from the streets of San Francisco to the lands beneath the waves, and her deadline is firm: she must find the boys in three days' time, or all of the Mists will pay the price.
