Heavens, it's been a long time since I've read an SFR! However, Tanya Huff's third volume of her Keepers series, LONG HOT SUMMONING, just came out.
I have to say that I have really enjoyed the first two books in this series. Her characters are engrossing and the dialogue hysterical. (When was the last time you got a belly-laugh over HELL?) This third book is no exception.
The story is focused around the newest active Keeper in the family, Diana. Her older sister Claire, Claire's boyfriend Dean, the unrespective cats Austin and Sam, as well as King Arthur, a few Egyptian deities, elves, trolls, a magic mirror, a reanimated Mummy, and assorted humans help propel this story from start to finish. I didn't want to put down the book to go to sleep, so I stayed up annoying my husband and sister (the Shelley on this list) with gales of laughter until I had wrung every last word from this wonderful story.
Now, of course, this morning I am laying around tired and weary with ink smudges all over, and my one thought is "WHEN IS THE NEXT BOOK COMING OUT?!?".--Marjorie (7 May 03)
I loved Tanya Huff's LONG HOT SUMMONING. I found myself laughing out loud on several occasions. Hell is back and can be found at a mall near you....As funny as these are, they also manage to have a great sense of adventure. Even while you are laughing, the heroines' mission is still suspenseful, which is a nice trick. Huff is one of those authors I wish could write super fast. I love so many of her different series I want to see books in all of them.--Shelley (18 May 03)
I enjoyed this one, particularly the cats and the humor, but there was too many POVs for my liking; it made me lose interest somewhat as it kept switching around.--JW (25 Jul 03)
