The Wild Ways (Gale Women #2) – Tanya Huff

One of my most favorite stories is Summon the Keeper (Keeper Chronicles #1) by Tanya Huff. It is the story that always brings me coming back to Huff.

Not all of her tales excite me, but when she delves into the magical world, she usually strikes right. The Wild Ways, is a continuation of her Gale Women series that deals strictly in magic.

I was happy to dip my toes back into this world and explore another story line that of Charlotte (Charlie) Gale, a musical wild child.

If you are looking for mythical creatures from dragons to selkies, this story will fit the bill.

It took me a couple chapters to feel engaged and connected to Charlie, but eventually her character began to unravel and I found myself growing to like her more as the story evolves. Charlie is a lesbian and I really enjoyed this character depiction choice. Her sexuality played a role in her character development and I felt enhanced her real personality.

Tanya knows how to tell a good story. She is a prolific writer and has written more stories and genres than I can remember over her long career. She is always worth picking up. If you are a dreamer then I think you will enjoy this blend of fantasy and reality. She makes you believe that goblins hide in everyday mines and dragons walk in human skins.

Take a chance on the wild side. You can find the book on Amazon in Kindle format for $7.99, hardcover for $12.99, paperback is only available in used condition, and $19.95 in audio.

Synopsis: Alysha Gale’s cousin Charlotte is a Wild Power, who allies herself with a family of Selkies in a fight against offshore oil drilling. The oil company has hired another of the Gale family’s Wild Powers, the fearsome Auntie Catherine, to steal the Selkies’ sealskins. To defeat her, Charlotte will have to learn what born to be Wild really means in the Gale family….
