More delightfully dark humour from Tanya Huff.
on 3 June 2009
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.
