Overview

Pittsburgh, PA has been magically transported to a world of elves and magic in order to stave off a monstrous invasion of Earth. Now Tinker, once a downtrodden waif from that city, but now a full-blooded elf ruler, must root out and destroy an evil plot that involves the kidnapping and breeding of elf children.

Tinker uncovers ancient secrets and a web of betrayal as she searches for the lost elflings. Meanwhile, the orc-like oni gangster kidnappers will stop at nothing to win, so neither can she. At five foot nothing, Tinker’s greatest weapon has always been her intelligence. Politics, she discovers, is a battle of wits, and Tinker comes heavily armed.

This book is part of a series but it can be read as a stand alone There are good references to what came before so you do not feel lost when it comes to the plot. It makes you want to read the rest of the series just because...

Like Katsi97, I, too, found the copy editing of this book to be truly atrocious, and that is compared to the appalling overall level of copy editing in the sci-fi/fantasy market. I even stated such on Baen's forums. I also objected to the cover art -- the protagonist is 18 years old and wears elegant elfwear, not a 40-something dressed in hookerwear! However, I've read the whole series and it's GREAT! You just have to put up with the many missing 'had's and other annoying stuff. Wen is one of my favorite authors, as her ideas for stories are so original. If you like the Tinker series, try out 'The Enchanted Emporium."

Loved the series!! Reminded me of Ilona Andrews Kate Daniels series. Tough female lead! Great writing and story.

I thouroughly enjoyed this book, I had a hard time putting it down. Stayed up too late, and put off other things I should have been doing until I finished. I was a little disapointed to find out it was third in the series, and I couldn't find any link to the first two. Want to find a copy of "Tinker" and read the series from the start. Warning: It is not a childrens book, since it covers adult relationships, death, and torture as the story unfolds.

While I greatly enjoy the stories that Wen Spencer creates there needed to be a better editing review of this book. It is full of incredibly distracting grammar errors. Words are missing from sentences in many cases in practically every chapter and flipped around inside a sentence in others. This is extremely distracting and annoying to me as a reader and detracts from the enjoyment of the first read through. Still the plot is enjoyable and if you liked the first two books you'll enjoy this one as well.

Wen Spencer's Elfhome series is a great read. I just wish she could write more about Tinker and crew faster!

What a great series.  It's a shame that the publishers continue to use the cover quote from Publisher's Weekly reference to "Buffy fans", since that made me reluctant to get books by this author, at first. The only point in common with "Buffy" is a female central character.  The imaginative story-line moves right along and is a wonderful combination of science, bioengineering, and other cultures.

I have read 4 books by this author now and have really enjoyed the characters and the worlds she has created. They have become some of my favorite stories that I have already ready a 2nd and 3rd time and hope for many more new stories from her.
