Review

Praise for the Enchantment Emporium series:

"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 

“It’s a great adventure, full of music and magic and just a little goofy at times, thanks to the delightful oddities of the Gales.” —Locus

"Combine Huff’s ability to blend ancient traditions seamlessly into the modern world and make them seem perfectly normal with her characters who are appealing and fun to hang out with, and you’re in for an amazing read." —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Combining Celtic folklore, musical references, and a love of nature and magic, this sequel to The Enchantment Emporium will appeal to Huff’s many fans and to readers who like their urban fantasy with more depth and character development.” —Library Journal

"Zingy characterizations and a quick pace." —Publishers Weekly

Quintessential Huff -- sharp, clean, funny. A heady mix of music, place and people that rings true on every level. Once again, I find myself hoping that this is a series that will go on.” —Green Man Review

"The Wild Ways is big fun from start to finish.... It’s got humor and drama, it’s fast-paced and sexy.... Huff just doesn’t write cookiecut characters; hers are fully rounded with many facets to their personalities. Whether you’re rejoining the Gale family or meeting them for the first time, I think you’ll be as delighted with this book as I am." —Charles de Lint --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This is my favorite series from Tanya Huff. I don't know if this is intended as a final chapter but it certainly answers many questions I had starting with the original story. The unique origins of the Gale family are revealed, and how these lead to their surprising code of behavior is herein explained.

The story picks up where it left off in the last book, with Charlie (magical bard) and Jack (part sorcerer part dragon) now slightly older. They have grown to love each other but Jack is not only younger than Charlie, the age difference is one of the few hard and fast Gale family taboos. While they struggle with this Charlie discovers an asteroid is coming to earth. Will Charlie find a way to avert catastrophe? Can Charlie and Jack find a solution? Will the notoriously family centric Gale clan find away to protect the family or will Charlie and Jack succeed in saving the world?

This book is filled with all kinds of pop culture humor, fan humor and musical references and jokes. Plus affectionate references involving Armageddon the movie. The all powerful Gale aunts are finally faced with their limitations, lovely Allie is faced with being cranky while raising twins and auntie Catherine is slightly less obscure than usual, in deference to the potential end of the world. Plus the fae act up like unpleasant teenagers. All and all a delightful outing with a most satisfactory finish. Thanks Tanya Huff.

I am a long time fan of Tanya Huff, I discovered her Quarter books and hunted down the rest over years. The Enchantment Emporium worked for me, the Wild Ways less so, the Future Falls had bits of wonderful "classic" Huff, which earns the two stars:
I read such books for entertainment. I have limited time. I do not want to reread the whole trilogy, parse down all references, and then understand super brief chapters or extremely short dialogue sequences only because it is all fresh in my mind.
Or maybe I would do that if the foreshadowing were not so clear that I knew very soon what the ending had to be, and was only curious for the how. Which was super convoluted, and rushed. Also, I found the leading couple interesting, but got much too little of their relationship.
In all, it seemed too clever for its own good to me.
I will definitely read Huff's next book, I might even try this trilogy again, to see if I was just out of synch with the book and might enjoy it some other time, but it was such an intense disappointment for me, that I need to let others know. Try a sample, get from the library, if you love it, you can still buy later, but do not spend money on this one. Go for her Shadows trilogy, or - slightly similar setup as this one - her Keeper books.

Yes, my laundry is unfolded, the family had Chinese take out for dinner, and I think the 4 year old has m & m's in her hair, but the important thing is I finished my the book. The third in the Enchantment Emporium series, it delves deeper into the Gale family dynamics, especially the relationships between Charlie, Jack, and Allie. All while dealing with an extinction level event providing the excitement. Love the writing, the characters, and the way it slips from the real world into the fantastic. Well worth the read.

The Enchantment Emporium is one of my fav fantasy books, and while the sequel was not as good, I was still looking forward to a new book in this series. What a disappointment. The plot seemed to meander all over w/o really going anywhere; spent most of the book wishing Charlie and Jack would quit mooning over each other and that something would actually happen. There were pages and pages of dithering about. Frankly, don't waste your time or money on this disappointment.

It is said that third parts are never good, but this time it is totally wrong! This book is terrific. It has everything: great characters well defined, a twisty plot that never disappoints and it is one of the best time travel stories I have ever read. Buy this book, dont't miss it, and also buy the two preceding books in this trilogy! They're excellent as well. Enjoy!

I'd really give this 3.5 out of 4 stars.

My first Tanya Huff novel was Summon the Keeper, which still makes me laugh to this day. Huff is an interesting writer who has a wide variety of writing personalities - some dark and traditional and some extremely light, which the Emporium series/Gale family fell into.

I really liked the first two - they were light, easy reading with lots of pop-culture quirks that no one reading the books will understand in 20 years. They were laugh-out-loud funny.

Now we get to the 3rd book and deeper into the complexity that is Charlie Gale. Given Charlie's role in the first book (a 2ndary character) I didn't think she would warrant her own books, which is what she has gotten with 2 & 3. Still, I liked Charlie in the 2nd book, and I jumped to get this one.

The Future Falls is less quirky and funny and more doom-and-gloom than I expected. It's about the end-of-the-world (literally) and what the Gales can do to stop it (asteriod crashing to earth - legitimate premise). And it's about the changing relationship between Charlie and the now-mature Dragon Prince Jack.

Up to the last 30 pages, everything is nicely connected. There's appropriate angst between Charlie and Jack. The aunties are present and funny as always; Allie is there with her 2nd-circleness; there's some decent pop-culture humor. Then, the plot resolution starts to happen, and I got lost. Admittedly, every time I read a novel that deals with time travel, I get lost. This was more convoluted to most and the only reason why I dropped my review to 3 stars instead of 4.

I have to say that even though I have a background in mythology, I am still pretty confused by the mythology at work in the Gale family.
