Product Description

Review

"There is so much to love about his book, the first in a series. The magic is deftly handled, the family stuff is bewildering and gripping, and the humour is as sharp as a dragon s tooth." --The Daily Mail

Fantasy buffs will find plenty of humor, thrills and original mythology to chew on, along with refreshingly three-dimensional women in an original, fully realized world. - Publishers Weekly

The Gales are an amazing family, the aunts will strike fear into your heart, and the characters Allie meets are both charming and terrifying. -Charlaine Harris

Excellent urban fantasy meets superior chick-lit with original ideas, fun, excitement and just the right amount of hunky luuurve. More Huff Emporium urb-chick-asy is coming soon and I can't wait! -The Book Bag

A delight from start to finish by turns humorous, romantic and dramatic. - Fantasy and Science Fiction

A compulsive and enjoyable read... This is urban fantasy at the top of its game with a strong central focus and engaging characters who really come to life. Once I had finished the book, all I wanted to know was what happens next! --Fantasy Book Review

I was half-convinced I wasn't going to like this book, but I'm very glad to be proved wrong. Like many other readers, I'd have liked a sequel to one of her other series, and wasn't convinced I'd like her new characters as much. I should have been more trusting. Tanya Huff knows what she's doing, and this is a wickedly twisted novel about a (huge) family of Canadian witches. When I say "twisted," I'm not really referring to the plot, which is relatively straightforward, but to the characters and situations which arise from it. I would say it's her funniest novel yet. I hope she chooses to write a sequel or two.
For those who haven't read Tanya Huff before: If you like Joss Whedon, you'll probably like this.

I read the Blood Ties sequence a while ago, and picked this up at random. Thank goodness - finally a story that doesn't lay it all out at the beginning, forcing the reader to (horror!) think on the way through it. It is amusing, it definitely is twisted, and, (if you're paying attention) it works! Thanks Ms Huff - please write some more!

A very fun new series from one of the masters of the Urban Fantasy genre.

Someone after something totally new will probably be disappointed with Enchantment Emporium. This book has a lot of similarities with the Keeper books, with the same sense of humour and indeed a number of similar phrases and terms. For example with the Keeper books their were Aunts and Cousins, denoting differing power levels. In this book you have Aunties (as opposed to normal Aunts) who are powerful members of the family that is focussed on. Unfortunately Austin also isn't around :(. But this doesn't detract at all, and the book is a great romp, and very hard to put down. Also very re-readable, I'd have re-read it several times already just for the chuckles I get from so many scenes.

Frankly, if you enjoy Tanya's more earthy books such as the Keeper books, Fire Stone and Wizard of the Grove you will probably love this book.

I felt I was reading a sequel (if so I couldn't find the original!). Also I wasn't in possession of all the relevant facts needed for plot and character development. Grammar and sentence construction was questionable and it was often extremely difficult to tell who was speaking during pages of dialogue.

The heroine, Alysha, loses her job and inherits her Grandmothers shop in Calgary who has disappeared in mysterious circumstances, presumed dead. There she meets the love of her life (apparently) who works for an evil sorceror who is up to no good.

The plot to the story is actually rather promising and it is a real shame that it doesn't deliver. It doesn't deliver because it jumps around, has no coherent thread and appears to have too many loose ends that are not resolved to my satisfaction; it read like the author was in a hurry to finish. In my opinion there is unnecessary sexual contact between the heroine and just about everyone else in the plot. She is called Alley-Cat for a reason it seems. It just doesn't add to the plot and isn't, in my opinion, titillating either.

But the real problem is the way that it is written. The style is jerky and the story doesn't flow. The first couple of chapters are incredibly confusing and I didn't bond with any of the characters. This is probably because I didn't really understand what was going on. I had to re-read sections to try and see if I'd missed something. For example, within Alyshas' family there are different circles of family who undertake different types of magic with Aunties being at the top. The magics of these circles apparently interact and apparently have to be anchored (read have sex with) by Gale boys. But there is no satisfactory explanation of these circles, what the Gale boys do and we miss a huge amount of context which might explain why the Aunties are so powerful and why Alexis is not allowed in the same room as her brother at times (presumably in case she sleeps with him too - yuk).

All in all, disappointing I'm afraid.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Mar 2014
Format: Paperback
To be honest I’m a huge fan of Tanya’s writing and whilst I’ve loved a lot of what has gone before I found this book not only uncomfortable but one that confused me on so many levels as it didn’t really make a lot of sense, almost as if Tanya was drinking from the same liquid source as a certain UF author with a penchant for the erotica.

The characters whilst interesting, didn’t really flesh out as much as I normally like with Tanya, the storyline felt convoluted and when added to magic that really didn’t seem to have any rules alongside with a family so messed up that Jerry Springer wouldn’t take them all round left me feeling disappointed with what I normally assume to be an author on my safe list.

All round I felt let down, hugely upset at not getting what I went for in and all round wondering if this is the shape of things to come for Tanya’s future titles. If so I’ll be bailing.
