River Marked - Patricia Briggs
I'm determined to write a spoiler free review, but the temptation is to point out the awesome world building and how satisfyingly Patricia Briggs wove in real world beliefs and places.

Characters grow, relationships stretch and deepen. There is humour and thoughtfulness. Actions have consequences.

The book charmed me. Beautifully written, it's not till you stop to think about it that you realise how many threads Patricia was weaving and that she didn't tangle them, and instead, made it seem smooth, is testament to the quality of the book.
