2014 book 152

J. Kathleen Cheney's The Seat of Magic
The sequel to The Golden City is just as much fun as the first one (although note I have the dates totally wrong in that first entry--this fantasy/mystery series is set in Portugal in 1902). Once again, our intrepid heroine, siren Oriana, and her half-selkie love interest are investigating a series of murders, ones that may be targeting magical creatures. And there are still a bunch of political implications and spy business from the first one. Exciting plot, and the romance proceeds at a nice pace. I also really liked where this ended up, and look forward to reading the third in the series. A-.
