Book Review – The Enchantment Emporium by Tanya Huff

The Enchantment Emporium by Tanya Huff

Tanya Huff is hilarious.  Her urban fantasy stories are liberally seasoned with profanity, sex of all kinds, pop culture references and loads of sarcastic humor.  This book features dragons, sorcerers, a tall leprechaun, a number of creepy-crawly things from the UnderRealm, and the Gale family, a huge and incredibly close-knit family of powerful cousins ruled by the “Aunties”, who appear to be capable of taking charge of the world if they feel like it. The Enchantment Emporium is the first book in a series about the fascinating Gale family. The second book, called The Wild Ways, was released this summer, and is just as excellent and funny as the first. The younger Gale girls are starting to come into their own power in ways that the Aunties don’t always like, and it infuriates them that they can’t get them under their collective thumbs.  I can’t wait for more in the continuing Gale saga.

  1. Tnaya Huff is one of my favorite urban fantasy writers. She’s got several terrific series – The Blood Series features Henry Fitzroy (yes, bastard son of King Henry VIII) as a modern-day romance writer and vampire, the Smoke Trilogy is about a boy who works on a detective/vampire TV show with some real monsters. And I really loved the Four Quarters traditional fantasy stories, altough that’s not among her most popular stuff. She also has a new book, hopefully the start of a new series, called The Silvered, due for release next month.
