The Enchantment Emporium – Tanya Huff

The Enchantment Emporium is the first in a new series by Tanya Huff. It follows the Gale family – with magic powers – as one of the many young women moves to Calgary (or was it Edmonton?) – some city out in Central Canada.

There is so much detail it feels as though this is the second or third book… at times it felt like it was trying too hard with world-building.  But it’s enjoyable still.  Dragons, spells, sorcerors. It was fun, but on the silly side too.

I may have missed something leading up to the end.  I was left thinking ‘Huh?  The who what then? ‘… The main characters line up fine, but the minor details puzzled me, especially when pointing to a major event or conspiracy.  How and why, I am not sure.

Oh, hey, what was the justification for the title?  Perhaps it’s the store that our heroine inherits, but it was still a stretch.
