    About "Tanya Huff"

    1. Tanya Huff

      Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia Although I haven t actually lived down east since just before my fourth birthday, I still consider myself a Maritimer I think it s something to do with being born in sight of the ocean Or possibly with the fact that almost no one admits to being from Ontario Raised, for the most part, in Kingston, Ontario It was the late sixties, early to mid seventies Enough said for those of us who lived through it and those who didn t seem to be getting another chance to fall off platform shoes.Spent three years in the Canadian Naval Reserve I was a cook They d just opened it up to women and I figured it would be the first trade that would send women to sea I was right Unfortunately it happened a year after I left No tattoos.Received a degree in RADIO AND TELEVISION ARTS B.A.A from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute The year I graduated was the year that the CBC laid off 750 employees in Toronto alone We were competing for jobs with people who had up to five years experience The cat threw up on my degree.Spent eight years working at Bakka, North America s oldest surviving science fiction book store Change Of Hobbit in California was actually a very little bit older but unfortunately it was a casualty of the recession in 91 During those eight years, while working full time, I wrote seven books the first seven, except for the original draft of CHILD , and nine short stories.In 1992, after living in downtown Toronto, a city of nearly three million, for thirteen years, I moved with two large cats, one small psychotic cat, and my partner out to a rented house in the middle of nowhere In the years since, we ve purchased the house, buried two of the original cats, replaced them with three felines and, unintentionally, acquired a Chihuahua You re probably wondering how two reasonably intelligent adults can unintentionally acquire a Chihuahua Please don t ask.I love living in the country, writing full time, anything by Charles de Lint, Xena, Hercules, and email I dislike telephones, electric blankets, and bathroom renovations.I always expect catastrophe as a result, I m usually pleasantly surprised Huff lives with her wife, Fiona Patton.

    1. I m sorry if you like this bookd I m tired.It seems and that when I pick up a book looking for an Urban Fantasy I get paranormal romance I suppose that I set the bar lower than some for deciding what is PNR And at the risk of being stoned I find often than not if it s a female author it s going to lean that way not always I know I kind of like Rob Thurman s Leandros series The idea behind this book sounded good and caught my interest I went out and bought it based on recommendations here It o [...]


    2. For pity s sake boy, Auntie Jane snorted as Dimitri shuffled carefully into the kitchen, there s salve for that Use it before these trousers rub you raw Downstairs bathroom And you lot, she snapped at the girls who gathered round the table as he left the room, stop giggling He didn t get in that condition all on his lonesome Allie pulled a platter of pancakes out of the oven were they d been keeping warm He needs to learn to pace himself Please correct me But what I ve learned from the first 30 [...]


    3. This is one of the best urban fantasy books I ve read in a while With a slightly stronger ending this would have been a five star book for me it really hit my sweet spot It s funny and light hearted but not shallow at all The magic system felt fresh and different, and it s not hard to enjoy this idea of women becoming powerful as they age I hope this is the beginning of a new series.There s a big, loving, powerful, nosy, overprotective and very appealing family There s a lot of amusing magic Th [...]


    4. Yeah, stoned on painkillers is totally the best way to review this one If you tilt your head to the right, this is a cozily hijinxical Canadian urban fantasy with a magical junk shop and a leprechaun and a snuggly extended family who express their feelings by baking a lot, also dragons.But if you tilt your head to the left, it s seriously fucked up slice of life about a family of creepy mind controlling witches who have a consent optional incestuous breeding program RUN AWAY RUN AWAY.So I mostly [...]


    5. sigh I picked this novel off the New Fiction shelf of the library, after not reading a word for two whole weeks Crazy, I know The librarians were getting ready to send a relief party out after me Anyhoo I ve learned to be VERY wary of female penned urban fantasies, as they tend to be heavier on the romantical pining and orgies than the urban or fantasy But EE piqued my interest for several reasons 1 Witches with nary a vamp or were to be seen, 2 Said witches don t have frizzy red curls, 3 Urban [...]


    6. I enjoyed this book despite all the efforts of the author to make me hate it And I ll admit up front that I m not a huge Tanya Huff fan, but mainly because she takes her anti hetero normative politics so very seriously So I was surprised that I found this book as engaging as I did.The Gale family setup was bizarre and I d hate to be caught in it on the male or female side , but that didn t lessen my fascination for the dynamic they find themselves in If you buy the premise, the adaptations and r [...]


    7. Canadian Urban Fantasy Magic runs in the Gale family, so when Allie s grandmother sends her a letter saying she s dead, no one really believes it Still, the letter says that Allie s responsible for her gran s business, which is supposedly vital to the community, and having recently been fired, it s not like she has anything better to do Allie packs up and heads for Calgary to take over her grandmother sjunk shop.Reasons why this book made me D face 1 Unexplained magic system 2 Unexplained We Mus [...]


    8. I feel like finishing this book should leave me with to say than meh Let s see The plot was fast paced enough to keep me reading, but not enough to get me past the weird gender relations, undeveloped magic system I like the ritual set up, but with no sense of what magic normally can or can t do, the ending lacked tension I assumed they d win, since so far magic had never failed them , and really, really sloppy editing.And then, as other reviews note, there s the incest It doesn t bother me to r [...]


    9. Well, that was far quasi incestuous sex magic than I expected to meet this side of fanfiction.I really liked this book I d hit a bad run and started to forget that the urban fantasy equivalent of the B movie can actually be good, but this is definitely a good book It s cheerful and sexual and funny and well built, and it definitely improved my week.


    10. I hate that these books keep disappointing me I felt like this book was one big inside joke First of all, the horn manifestations and copious references to sex magic powers goes back to the pagan beliefs about the Green Man and May Day celebration and whatnot However, if I wasn t a big brainiac and knew about that stuff already, I d be super confused So, perhaps I just don t have enough trivial knowledge, but so much of this book acknowledges these Gales and it really just doesn t make sense Eve [...]


    11. It was great A slow and somewhat confusing start resolved itself into a protagonist I couldn t help but love and an amazing magical system If the beginning needed a little work, the ending than made up for it I love Allie and her motley selection of friends and family as well as her actual Family There wasn t a character that wasn t perfectly written Definitely think everyone should read Exactly what Urban Fantasy should be and there must be Or I will cry.


    12. Enjoyed it, enough to add to my collection Nice balance of plot and character development On first read, the first chapter was slightly disjointed and challenging to follow, but sticking with it paid off big dividends It s true, like other reviewers, I found the sex distracting but it does play a role in the story in terms of relationships and emotional connections.


    13. This book has been on my to read list for four years, and I m glad I finally got to it Tanya Huff delivers strong urban fantasy set in a Canadian city She sets up an interesting family of magic users, where the women and the men participate in complicated rituals that allow them to work charms Alongside, she sends us a light mixture of supernatural creatures to pad out the character sheet a leprechaun, some dragons and Dragon Lords, but nothing too unusual or overwhelming That s what I appreciat [...]


    14. I really like Tanya s work, she s one of the few authors that got me to read actual Fantasy, I do enjoy her Valor series a lot, but my true love always was with her Vicky Nelson novels and so it was with great anticipation that I awaited her return to Urban Fantasy.Ah, but what a disappointment this book is.After a hundred pages I m still not sure what the main protagonist is supposed to be Other than some variety of magic user that is.All that Tanya cares to tell us about her is that she comes [...]


    15. Bought this book on a recommendation from a friend Now I have to go find the friend a really nice Christmas present Although I found the beginning to be fairly rocky I kept having to check and make sure I wasn t coming in halfway thru the series Characters kept popping in with little in the way of narrative introduction it was very odd , the rest of the story was very good I couldn t put it down I haven t done any housework in a week.Honestly, how can you not love a character who when thinking o [...]


    16. This book is a little sexually freaky view spoiler first cousins on first cousin action with the aunties keeping track of who can get pregnant hide spoiler which had me thinking of this as a milder version of To Sail Beyond the Sunset by Robert A Heinlein which was chock full of incest I kept trying to remove myself from the cringy feelings and just enjoy the book but I think know that colored my liking this book Which leads me to the point where I would have given this book a 4 instead of a 3 s [...]


    17. This was my first Tanya Huff book It was pleasant but not riveting I liked the characters but got kind of tired of the Gale girls and all the mysterious magical stuff It felt a bit disjointed However, I liked the dragons and the magic.


    18. Maybe I should have given it five stars, because the one aspect I didn t like was planned by the author I really despised the antagonist.I loved the idea which the author has explicitly mentioned about this book in interviews of a family where the women hold the power and the older the power they get The rituals and connections that govern the usage of the power and I really shouldn t say they hold it they use it when it s raised and otherwise let it go and the interconnectedness of breeding fo [...]


    19. Hmm, weird book Excellent setup with a magical emporium, a family that appears to have some interesting powers, and a problem shaping up Easy, breezy writing and a plot that moves along well Some characters that look interestingly diverse Along comes Graham First guy she sees is Mr McDreamy, whose descriptions kept making me think of the guy on the cover of every Harlequin Romance ever printed And the longer the book went on, the squirmy details appeared The Gales are not nice people, despite a [...]


    20. In all honesty, I seriously considered giving up on this book in the first chapter Not only was the let s throw the reader right into the middle of this weird family thing incredibly confusing, the abundant references to everyone enjoying threesomes, somes, orgies and sex rituals in all possible permutations and keeping it all in the family at that really isn t my cup of tea At all At that point, I took a look at some reviews, which promised me that the plot would actually kick in with chapter t [...]


    21. Okay, this was a weird one and I have to say something about it The writing was fine, the characters were mostly charming and plucky and inoffensive There was a lot of magic enhanced, manipulative baking The story was well, I m not big on urban fantasy, but that didn t get under my skin so much as the generations old incestuous breeding plan overseen by the older women witches in the family Gale girls turn into Aunties and the creeptastic gender politics in this book Explaining that at length wo [...]


    22. Most readers, I m sure, will spend the first few chapters confuseduntil it finally clicks that you really ARE reading about polyamorous bisexual incestuous cousins.Now, set that aside, because this book is light and sweet and full of pop cultural reference Driver picks the music shotgun shuts his cakehole that made me grin like a loon While there is sex, it isn t explicit, and the characters attitude towards it is healthy It is what it is There s nothing of the dirtybadwrong that permetes so man [...]


    23. First I must say that the family breeding program was pretty messed up It was a keep in the family policy, and because there were so many girls then some got to breed outside the family If the guy was accepted But to be honest it never truly bothered me, Allie was not chosen by a cousin so I was a bit, ok, I can deal.Allie left her family to start over in Calgary and take over her gran s weird shop And of course things goes wrong at once She meets a Fae, she sees.s I shall not mention but oh my [...]


    24. I was very confused on this book at first Things seemed very random When this happens I will give a book until page 50, if it is still like that give up Luckily things started to make sense and I really liked the book in the end But this does seem like one book where if you re read it right again things will click faster.I really liked Allie and her crazy family They seemed like a fun group to be around There was so much going on within how the family works it was hard to grasp it There wasn t o [...]


    25. I have never read Tanya Huff before, but I am going to have to check out some of her other novels because I adored this book It was a lot of fun, the characters were well drawn, quirky and very appealling, and overall it was just great fun The moment I finished, I hopped online to see if there were other books in this world, but alas, no I hope Tanya Huff revisits the Gale family soon, because I would love to read .Re read October 2017I FINALLY got around to picking up the second book in this se [...]


    26. Weird, weird book Intriguing, but also completely baffling I had no idea what was going on Not sure I m interested in book 2.Please read Jacob s for an in depth review review show


    27. TL DR This book made me angry most of the time, uncomfortable a lot of the time, and unenthused the rest of the time I give it one star for a nice cover with a pretty design and a rear cover description that manages to hide the truth of this book and draw people in It is in fact full of sadistic witches who are suppose to be our heroines, sexism against men, incest, and the twist ending with the unlimited power of this witches makes everything that happened entirely pointless I can t be bothered [...]


    28. originally posted at thebookplank 2014Urban Fantasy comes in many forms and shapes and I just found another one Having read her first book in the Confederation series Valour s Choice, her Tanya Huff showed that she knows how to write cool characters and an even better storyline The Enchantment Emporium is the first book in the Gale Women series and promises a fine display of all things you like in Urban Fantasy From a magic store, that takes the magic quite literal to dragons roaming the street [...]


    29. Tanya Huff strikes again This time she reinvents the classical witches imaginary with a special Huff s twist forget magic spells and wand waving, because magic permeates every aspect of the Gale family, it s an invisible force that they can manipulate to change the world around them according to their wishes I have to admit that my first reaction to the Gale s family relations was very bewildered, but after it I consider the whole thing as what actually is a fantasy novel, where things that are [...]


    30. So this is the first book I ve read by Tanya Huff even though I ve seen her name all over the place Apparently she s got other series already Maybe that s why I was a little lost for a while in this book Maybe if I had read her woks chronologically it would ve given me a better background for the world it s happening in And the rules of said world IdkAlso, not gonna lie, the incest freaked me out a bit Eek But it was cute and entertaining and a good mystery wrapped up in a lovely urban fantasy w [...]
