To defeat her, Charlotte will have to learn what born to be Wild really means in the Gale family…


“Zingy characterizations and a quick pace are the book’s strong points […] fans of the previous book will hit the ground running.”

Publishers Weekly

“Huff is one of the pioneers [...] of urban fantasy, bringing an earthy wholesomeness that elevates the genre above the steamy eroticism so common to other series [...] Combining Celtic folklore, musical references, and a love of nature and magic, this [...] will appeal to Huff’s many fans and to readers who like their urban fantasy with more depth and character development.”

Library Journal

“Quintessential Huff — sharp, clean, funny. A heady mix of music, place and people that rings true on every level. Once again, I find myself hoping that this is a series that will go on.”

Green Man Review

“It’s a great adventure, full of music and magic and just a little goofy at times, thanks to the delightful oddities of the Gales.”


“She’s a delight to read. She has a knack for providing laugh-out-loud quotes. Her writing is whimsical and unique. Huff’s characters come to life on the pages […] THE WILD WAYS is a worthy successor to THE ENCHANTMENT EMPORIUM.”

Errant Dreams

“Timely environmental themes can easily draw in new readers.”

RT Book Reviews

“A meal to satisfy most appetites. Combined with Huff’s ability to blend ancient traditions seamlessly into the modern world and making them seem perfectly normal and characters who are appealing and fun to hang out with, you’re in for an amazing read. A perfect example of how there’s more to urban fantasy than teenage girls swooning over the undead and how so many others are failing to exploit the genre’s full potential.”

Seattle Post Intelligencer/BlogCritics

“One of the more refreshing contemporary fantasies, which brushes against urban fantasy.”

Critical Mass

“Another wild ride with the Gale family […] the author’s lyrical writing is deceptively understated.”

Night Owl Reviews

“As always, Huff offers magical entertainment, with a strong dose of humor.”


“If you like books with memorable characters, a great story line, with comedy to lighten the darkness, give THE WILD WAYS a try.”


“Very refreshing […] Huff is definitely one of the best writers around.”

Rabid Reader

“I felt like I was dancing on air when I was given the opportunity to read and review THE WILD WAYS […] I enjoyed reading this, finding out ‘what happens next,’ and delving into the unpredictable Charlie.”
