October Daye series by Seanan McGuire

I've been on a bit of a fae kick lately and this series has totally filled that need.

My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars. While I may like some of the books better than others, I think the entire series is strong.

"October Daye knows too well how cruel Faerie can be to its changeling children. Born in San Francisco and carried to the Summerlands by her pureblood mother when she was just a child, she was raised in a world that never seemed capable of understanding her. She ran away the moment the opportunity presented itself, only to find that the human world wasn't any better."

The series does not start out quietly, when you first meet our Changling - she's been a fish for some years (evil befalls her). She meets opposition at every turn but still does what she feels is the right thing to do. She does her best to not endanger anyone as she has a little bit of a suicidal tendency with everything she does.
