Tanya Huff – The Enchantment Emporium

October 10th 2011 in contemporary fantasy

The Gales of southern Ontario can change the world with the charms they cast, and they prefer to keep all this power in the family. The Gale Aunties are in charge of this clan, or like to think they are. Alysha, like all her cousins, often finds herself beset with too many Aunties trying to run her life. So when a letter from her missing Gran arrives telling her that she’s inherited a junk shop in Calgary, Alysha is ready and willing to honor her grandmother’s last request to keep the shop open and serve “the community”. The Aunties, of course, want her to find out what really happened to Gran and come right back home, where they have her future mapped out for her.

It isn’t until she arrives in Calgary that Alysha realizes it’s the fey community she’ll be serving in The Enchantment Emporium – and that one person’s junk may be another person’s magical treasure. Finding out what happened to Gran will not be easy, especially since Alysha has no way of knowing just how much otherworldly trouble is brewing in Calgary. And even calling in family reinforcements may not be enough to save the day…

Jag gillar. Familj med starka kvinnor, och huvudpersonen en kvinna som ger blanka fan i dem och går sin egen väg.

Magi.

Drakar.

Intressant värld (ja, okej, intressant omskrivning av vår egen värld då) som får mig att önska att det fanns 20 böcker till i samma serie: jag vill veta mer; det finns just precis lagom med förklaringar och bakgrund för att jag ska fatta vad som händer men det känns som att det finns ett universum med riktigt bra böcker bakom också som skulle ge mig ännu mer förståelse.

Fast det finns det inte. Bok nummer två i serien kommer snart och fokuserar på en annan av fröknarna Gale.

Ja just. “Hålla det i familjen” betyder precis det du tror, men det är lugnt – Tanterna har koll på vem som bonkar vem, så det blir ingen familjen Peacock i alla fall. Och det finns folk av alla läggningar och det är ingen riktigt big deal, ja förutom att Allie inte kan få den hon helst vill ha för han är väldigt gay.

Tombstone, Arizona in 1881. Veins of silver run like ley lines under the earth, a network of power that belongs to anyone who knows how to claim and defend it. Power by which men and women can bend others to their will.
