"The Gales are an amazing family, the aunts will strike fear into your heart, and the characters Allie meets are both charming and terrifying." (Number one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris)

Alysha's Gran is still lurking.

This is the second book in what I hope will be a lengthy series. The plot in this book follows Charlie, who was a lesser character in "The Enchantment Emporium." I really like the idea that she works much of her magic through her music. The other character who takes a step forward in this book is Jack. I really liked him in "Enchantment" so I was glad to see him get more time onstage in this story. Many of the other characters from the previous book are back again too. The Aunties are busy making pies and annoying phone calls again. Even the magic mirror is back, handing out its usual enigmatic hints. And Alysha's Gran is once again lurking in the background, trying to manipulate everyone (for their own good, of course).

I'm happy to say that I liked Erin Moon's narration better than the narrator for "Enchantment". She made no attempt at Irish or Chinese accents, but she did a much better job with everything else.

If you like urban fantasy, I think you'll enjoy this one. A lot.

Enjoyable but feels incomplete

Any additional comments?

Overall an enjoyable listen (Tanya Huff is talented enough that she is incapable of writing unenjoyable books) but it feels like the resolution could have used something.
