Thank you for Jesse Fox. Thank you for Mildred Benjamin. Thank you for Chu. Mostly, thank you for a Tombstone with bones and flesh and spirit.

Great read, sort of an unfinished ending though.

When I heard that a known literary fantasy writer like Bull had taken on a story set in Tombstone during the time before the gunfight at the OK Corral (a subject about which I have a certain amount of knowledge and affection), I HAD to read it. I was well rewarded. This is a straightforward story with mystery and secrets in every corner. There is always a feeling of portents at the reader's back, even when events seem to roll along an unobstructed track. While her take on certain historical characters won't match everyone's, it makes sense within what is known of them and within the story. All of her characters are well-constructed. Even the secondary characters are made three-dimensional without too much time taken from the main tale. The story of the Tombstone women story is as important as the men's villains are shown to have a good side, while those who turn to ill also reveal what is good in them. I rarely find so much complexity in a story that appears as clean-cut as a classic western. The magic is very down to earth and believable, as is the life of the widowed typesetter/reporter. Bull does a great job of depicting the life and constraints of the Chinese of the period without being pitying or condescending: it is at it is. This is the best adult fantasy I've read in a long time!

“The land around them was flattened by the shadowless light, and seemed almost as impossible to walk into as a painting. Wyatt appeared to have no trouble, though.” “He’d thought he was the wildfire. Now he knew he was only the tree.” [Doc Holiday] … from Territory by Emma Bull Just finished Emma Bull’s novel, Territory. So good. It was like stepping back in time and seeing the private lives of historical figures revealed — from an angle you might never have expected. I want a sequel.

After War of the Oaks I was hooked, if I see the name Emma Bull I MUST buy the book. This book surprised me in all the right ways. A well researched historical with the addition of Elemental Magic dragged me away. I could not put it down. It reminded me of Mercedes Lackey's Fire Rose which delighted my heart. Any time East meets West magic in the old west I am intrigued. If this book were made into a movie it would be on par with The 7 Faces of Dr Lao, a favorite of mine.

The vividness of a good movie, savoured at the pace of words on the page.

In Tombstone in the Arizona Territory, Wyatt Earp seems to run things though he was defeated in the race for sheriff. Doc Holiday, who is dying of consumption, is in remission, and he believes it has something to do with Wyatt who needs him and regards him as part of his family. As long as Wyatt can draw on the support of his family including Doc, he is a power to be reckoned with, a man who always gets what he wants. --- Jesse Fox was summoned to Tombstone by his friend and mentor, the powerful sorcerer Lung Chow. He stays because his friend needs him and because of his interest in typesetter, journalist and writer Mildred Benjamin. He becomes Wyatt¿s enemy when he helps a prisoner escape, someone Earp wants hung to protect his brother who was one of the gang that tried to rob a stagecoach and ended up killing a man. When Lung is murdered, Jesse vows to avenge his death even if it means becoming a sorcerer like his friend was. --- This is a fascinating and exciting historical fantasy in the tradition of Judith Tarr. Emma Bull¿s take of the legend of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and other famous men of the Wild West is fascinating. Jesse grows and changes as he learns to accept the fact that he is a conjurer and he ends up using his rookie powers in a High Noon fight at the OK Corral to neutralize an experienced sorcerer who has too long not been held accountable for the murders he committed. TERRITORY is a spellbinding tale of the good and dark side of magic. --- Harriet Klausner
