Meet the Author

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.

    Fun science fiction with a cat reality twist

    This is the third book in a very fun and lighthearted science fiction series. Tanya Huff skillfully mixes Aurthurian ledgends with elves and evil characters. The cats are very reallistic and keep everyone grounded by reminding them what is really imprtant in life (food and sleep).

    Juvenile

    My best guess is that this book was aimed at early teen readers. I certainly wouldn't recommend it for adults. The plot, characters and dialog were extremely juvenile.

    A Sarcastic, Funny Tour de Farce

    Long Hot Summoning is the 3rd in the Keeper series by Tanya Huff, but don't let that stop you from picking it up first, if you get the chance. The earlier books spend time giving you background about Keepers and exploring the relationship between Dean and Claire - but this book can give you enough to jump you into the action without losing too much.------The book opens with Diana Hansen graduating from high school and embarking on her first summons as a Keeper (a cross between a vampire hunter, a cop and a magician). Diana is your typical teenager - a smart-aleck who seeks to do anything that is abosolutely forbidden by anyone older. She realizes that her 1st summons may be a bit too big just for her (and her cat, Sam, an former angel now a sort of familiar) so she enlists her elder sister, Claire. And so, with much sisterly bickering Diana & Claire enter the world of magic which is morphing an ordinary shopping mall into a gate for evil, a sort of bizarro mall with a Tailer Shop full of various tails and a Travel Agency bringing in tour parties from Hell itself. The use of the shopping mall as the site for the action invokes a certain sense of playfulness in this book, which is expanded by the humorous asides between all the characters. ----- This a scifi book with a sense of fun and a willingness to take shots at the standard images of the genre (Arthur, king of the mall-rats, is pretty happy that he does not have that emotional baggage - Lance & Guinevere - along for this adventure; a supreme evil being who is willing to torture but is disgusted by the mention of feminine hygeine products). Yet the action is just as exciting as any other adventure book & is better written than many others. Subtract a star for an occaisional lapse into the just too cute category, sucha as Dean and his Newfie speech and the perpetually starving, sarcastic cat/angels.

    A delightful and charming urban fantasy

    Keepers are those of the Lineage who maintain the metaphysical balance of the world. Now that Diana Hansen has graduated high school she is no longer kept in reserve but is a full-fledged Keeper. She notices a bracelet a student is wearing is tainted by evil and learns that it was bought at a store in the Kingston, Ontario Mall. Realizing that the forces of darkness have almost taken over the mall, Diane gets her sister Claire, powerful in her own right, to help her in her first Summoning..................... They cross over from the mall to the Otherside where an identical mall is segueing into the one on the mortal plane. There they find allies in Arthur and his elves (street children who have found their way into the Otherside and have changed into another life form). There they prepare to do battle with the evil being known as the Shadowlord, a fight they must win if Earth is to survive................................... LONG HOT SUMMONING is a delightful and charming urban fantasy that is both funny and exciting. The plot is so fast-paced that readers find a need to see what happens next. The secondary cast is whimsical creatures that include a magic mirror and a cat that used to be an angel. They play a small but pivotal role in the story line, leaving readers feeling as if they were participants in an adult fairy tale.............. Harriet Klausner
