The former is set in Minneapolis, where a young female musician is dragged into a covert war between the Seelie and Unseelie courts of Faerie, with the city as the prize. The latter is set in Albequerque, the current home of King Arthur(yes, that King Arthur), who is in actuality one of a race of immortal shape-shifters who take on the same archetypes over and over as they shift identities in order to remain secret. Arthur finds this secrecy threatened as unscrupulous rivals attempt to depose him as leader, in the process arousing the unpredictable wrath of the Changer, oldest of them all.

If I'm laying the syrup on thick here it's only due to the love I have for both these books. Everyone I've recommended them to has loved them also.
