11:120 Forbid the Sea by Seanan McGuire

A story of Tybalt set about 10yrs after Rat-Catcher and many years before the events of the Toby Daye series.  Tybalt is bored now that the cats have all moved away for the time being to stay safe but as king, he has remained behind to keep the Court open and ready when his subjects return.  Being bored is not so good for a cat however so he decides to head off for a journey down the river as a change of pace.  While he is gone, he finds Dylan, a selkie, and the loneliness they share creates a bond neither expected.  But as Tybalt did not tell Dylan that he was the King of Cats, Dylan is also harboring his own secrets that will tear them apart.

A sweetly poignant story from Tybalt's past.  I'm really enjoying these insights into him as he is one of my favorite characters in the Toby Daye series.
