2010 book 81

Seanan McGuire's A Local Habitation
The sequel to Rosemary and Rue isn't as good as its predecessor--there's not much in the way of character development (and no mention of the protagonist's daughter, who I've been wondering about since finishing the first book) and the mystery's resolution wasn't particularly interesting. I do like McGuire's world-building, though, and this is less cheesy than a lot of other urban fantasy books. The third one comes out in September--she's really cranking these out--and I might read it, since I do enjoy the main character, and also b/c a high school friend knows the author. B.
