    1. If anyone has any kind of advance copy of this, I will read it and review for you.I will smile while doing it.#crossmyheart.#notabovebribery

    2. It's about Canada, music, magic and an extinction event now that's not your typical urban fantasyA few quotes to illustrate why this book is awesome:“And we're screwed either way. Twenty-one months, big hunk of rock, bam, extinction event.” “Bam?” “Scientifically speaking.” LOL"Life isn’t a Michael Bay movie.” “Usually, that’s a good thing.”This is one of my favourite urban fantasy series because of it’s themes of family and because of the fact that is just so darn well w [...]

    3. Another fantastic Gale Girls/ Enchantment Emporium novel. Like most of Tanya Huffs books, I found it impossible to put down, being held back only by the need to go to work. The characters are as always charming and quirky, and the plot moves at a rapid pace. I rather like the mix of fantasy creatures that show up, and the storyline offers a great save the world experience. If you like elves, dragons, brownies, leprechauns, asteroids, or just plain good writing, this book is for you. Looking forw [...]

    4. I had an extremely difficult time rating The Future Falls. As painfully as I got wrapped up in the Jack/Charlie angst, I still loved probably the first 90% of the book. That's a lot of book to love. But I'm also susceptible to the ending ruining everything I previously loved when I'm that emotionally invested. I didn't mind the resolution to the story's antagonist, if you will. Sure, it was kind of an info dump at the last minute, but that wasn't what the book was about anyway. It was Charlie &a [...]

    5. I really liked this book so much that I dived deep into the day after I got it and then spent three hours on Saturday to finish it. Got it on Thursday. I love the characters and it just makes you jump in and forget about the world outside while you are reading it. It was all about Charlie and Jack this time and I liked the element of attraction, caring between the characters and whether they get together or not. The best part, the author, Tanya Huff, does not break the rules of her earlier books [...]

    6. This is the third book in the Gale Women urban fantasy series and, like the previous two, is a fun and light read, though it didn't hold my interest quite as well. The dialog is fun, as Huff's always is, with fast and clever wittiness. There was a little too much angst about the forbidden and frustrated romance between the thirty-year-old witch and the teenaged dragon-prince. I couldn't buy that an incestuous and poly-amorous band of witches would really be too hung up on the age rule. There was [...]

    7. With this one things got tough for the Gale family, but especially for Charlie and Jack. I felt for both of them, that due to the "family rules" they couldn't act on their attraction, but was also sort of glad as the ages of them sort of grossed me out.I loved all the people that were able to help explain things to Charlie, they were interesting characters! The solution that worked sort of made my head hurt. You had to really pay attention to who was doing what, when. That sounds easy, but not r [...]

    8. It took me a long time to pick this book up off my shelf, because I suspected I wouldn't like it. And I loved the first book in this series so much, I just really didn't want to read a book I wouldn't like.Well, I was correct I didn't like it. Because, frankly, I seriously dislike Charlie (the heroine).A flaw throughout the series is the lack of actual world-building when it came to magic. I didn't understand what they could do, what they couldn't do, what the limits were of both Gales and Wild [...]

    9. I loved everything about this book. If I thought the first book was weird, this one took the weird up to 11, especially at the end. Loved it.

    10. It's the End of the World. With Teddy Bears. A huge rock is falling out of the sky. NASA can't fix it. The Gale girls, witches to the bone, can't fix it because it is Not Of This Earth. Charlie, musician-magician extraordinaire, can't fix it, barbecue sound doesn't travel through space. The Gales got a heads-up, though, because they have a Seer in the family. Also, Crazy Dave talked about it on the internet. Well, there's a sure and certain omen.While Charile the Bard is chasing down some music, [...]

    11. I finished this a while back, but hadn’t quite figured out how to talk about it. Partly because it’s one of her Gale Girls books, which is her kind-of-dubcon/incestuous-if-you-squint-at-it fantasy series, what with family and magic and interfering aunties pairing up cousins left, right, and centre. But also because… that ending.Right, I did like TFF – okay, I really liked it – but I suspect a lot of it was because I read it with my romance hat on and therefore totally wallowed in Charl [...]

    12. Ah, well.Of course, the writing was superb. The slang, the subtle word play, the allusions to sex without the graphic detail, the melding of "real world" and Gale world - all classic Tanya Huff. But if you're like me, you read the Keeper Trilogy - and the final book was the jewel. So, I expected the same of Future Falls. I couldn't put the book down, naturally. And there were some elegant moves I did NOT see coming, butme spoilerish ***************Oh, the angst! The torture! The emotional trauma [...]

    13. I was happy to find a 3rd instalment of the Gale Women series, which continues Charlie's struggle in a double life between the comforts of domesticity at home with Ally and the babies and her adventures as she travels through the Wood and grows ever more Wild and like her crazy Auntie Catherine, the Seer. Music is her magic, but can it save the family, or more importantly, the world from an apocalyptic event such as an asteroid strike?I loved Jack's POV the best in this book, a dragon prince gro [...]

    14. I was disappointed by this book. I typically like Tanya Huff's books - especially the more recent stuff. The first book in this series was great. It had a nice plot, some great humor and great characters. The second book was ok. It was nice to see more of Charlie and Jack, but they didn't make for the best main characters. This one just fell flat for me. The beginning was ok, though I thought Allie wasn't really acting the way I would have expected her from the earlier book. By the middle things [...]

    15. I LOVE the Gale family and I LOVE Tanya Huff's urban fantasy. That said, there was something that didn't work for me with this novel. To be vague and spoiler-free, there was a lot of drawn-out angst with a resolution that was too quick after all the build up. And the ending especially didn't work for me from a character perspective. Plot-wise it was freaking brilliant. But it didn't serve the characters. I'm glad she writes trilogies (with the exception of the Vicky Nelson novels), because I thi [...]

    16. A solid ending to this series, which I have enjoyed. DO NOT start here! You really need to read the previous 2 first.While in general I find time travel to be rather deus ex machina- what CAN'T you solve thus???- Huff did a good job of balancing that with the plot, and for time travel, it was remarkably coherent.Also, I think the characters were on the whole richer and better realized than they were in the second book.The plot was an interesting meld of sf and fantasy, and the question of how fa [...]

    17. So I liked the first two books. But this one got weird really fast, that I had to stop reading it. Basically, Charlie (30 year old female), is having feelings for a 17 year old male dragon prince, and vice versa. I stopped reading to see if they acted upon those feelings. I didn't need to read anything else, nor did I care. Why even develop a story line like this. What's the point. It's disgusting. I'm done with Tanya Huff.

    18. A good addition to the series with a few reservations. It answers some of the questions of where/how although that raised my eyebrows just a bit. The 'have to save the world from an extinction event/asteroid' was an interesting plot theme, but I found the journey to get there rather slow and convoluted and I found Charlie and Jack as family-banned lovers rather incomprehensible.Overall, my least favorite of the three books but not a waste of time.

    19. Interesting, entertaining read. It's an "end of the world" fantasy that has the characters fight and struggle and think and worry, and then at the end when the disaster is about to hit, they go "Shazam!" (so to speak) and the disaster instantly goes away without any apparent effort. Sort of "oh, is that all?" It's a good read, but a little anticlimactic.

    20. Another fantastic tale about the magical Gale family. The women (and their men) end up saving the world this time with the help of Faery and Dragons. Their mysterious group is very engaging, and you can believe that there really is magic in the world. Tanya Huff is an excellent author.

    21. I really enjoy Tanya Huff's writing & this didn't disappoint -- quirky, funny, with lots of crazy stuff happening. Never a dull moment!

    22. A worthwhile seriesI like Tanya Huff. This third and I believe final book in the Enchantment Emporium series is ok. There is magic and pie, charms and references to eroticism, Armageddon and time travel. It became a bit too convoluted and vague for me to really enjoy. Found myself doing that page skimming thing one does out of boredom. I needed more substance and less metaphysical mind games.Would I read the series again, if I knew the outcome of my interest level? I'll have to ask Charlotte Gal [...]

    23. Well, I stuck with this series to this point and I'm still not sure I understand the Gales. But I still hoped finishing this series would help me understand this world. I'm fascinated by some of the concepts of "wood" travel and time travel and Charlie as a free spirit following the music. But I felt so much remained unexplained, ultimately I felt unfulfilled. I hung with it, but don't yearn for more.

    24. Vague SpoilersCharli was much more put together in this book. I enjoyed it until the end. The ending felt slapped together, as if the author was like "Hey, I want this to happen, so I'm just going to make it happen regardless of clarity or logic or story flow." I don't know where the twenty years came from or the self-causing loop.

    25. Okay, book. If you're going to make me ship a somewhat worrying older-cousin/younger-cousin wossname (which I'm a little disgruntled about, I *liked* their mentorly dynamic), and you're going to sell me on it that is a terrible resolution full of plotholes, and without so much as a kissing by way of payoff.Also the giant asteroid thing was a bit much.

    26. I like the style with all the pop culture references. It had a pretty good wrap-up and solution to all the holes and problems not only in this book, but the previous. Nice.

    27. My favorite series by this author. Totally kick ass women in a family as dysfunctional as they get, with magic and dragons. What's not to like?
