Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire
October Daye - Book 7
This series has some of the best world building for urban / faerie fantasy out there. The main mystery is solved in each book but I wouldn't recommend reading out of sequence. The relationships and the reveals over time are masterful in bringing layers to the story. This book finds Toby (October) and Tybalt's relationship growing as both struggle to find their footing in a new life as a couple. The kingdom is threatened by the influx of a goblin drug that is harmful to humans and changelings but just gets Faeries high - so it's not high on the list of things for the Faerie leadership to stop. Toby has to gather her trusted band of misfits to fight the threat and try and do the right thing as a good knight must.
