"The Gales are an amazing family, the aunts will strike fear into your heart, and the characters Allie meets are both charming and terrifying." -#1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris
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...
Canadian author Huff cranks up the supernaturally complicated family shenanigans in this helter-skelter sequel to 2009's The Enchantment Emporium. Charlotte "Charlie" Gale faces off against the legendarily tricky Aunt Catherine, a fellow Wild Power who's joined forces with an aggressive oil company that plans to drill in the middle of local Selkie territory. Working to save the Selkies while wrangling a bored 14-year-old cousin who's also a dragon, Charlie has to come to terms with who she is and what she's capable of doing. Zingy characterizations and a quick pace are the book's strong points, moving the reader past often-convoluted family interactions with aplomb. Unfortunately, the most interesting plot twists rush past as well, giving short shrift to Aunt Catherine's role as a master manipulator. New readers will find it tough to get up to speed, but fans of the previous book will hit the ground running.
