Giveaway! "Rosemary and Rue" by Seanan McGuire

I love it when I get extra copies of books by new authors to pass on. This new title, Rosemary and Rue, (Penguin group) by Seanan McGuire seems particularly promising. Singer-songwriter McGuire adeptly infuses her debut with hardboiled sensibilities and a wide array of mythological influences, set against a moody San Francisco backdrop. October Toby Daye is half-human, half-faerie, a changeling PI with a foot in both worlds. After spending 14 years as a fish following a botched assignment, she's desperate to avoid magic, but the dying curse of a murdered elven lady forces her to investigate the killing, with the price of failure being Toby's own painful death. Toby struggles with court intrigue, magical mayhem, would-be assassins and her own past, always driven by the need to succeed and survive. Well researched, sharply told, highly atmospheric and as brutal as any pulp detective tale, this promising start to a new urban fantasy series is sure to appeal to fans of Jim Butcher or Kim Harrison.

All entries will be discarded after the contest is over) and I will randomly pick a winner by Tuesday September 15th. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Open everywhere.
