Relative Magic by Tanya Huff

Title: Relative Magic
Author: Tanya Huff
Genre: Fantasy anthology
Setting: A mix of contemporary and historical, fictional and real settings.
Reason for Reading: I really like Tanya Huff and this was the only anthology of hers my library system carries.
Pages: 317
Copyright Date: 2003
Cover: A fancifully tattooed Egyptian-looking woman lounges with the attitude of a predator.
First line: "'Mom?' Beth Aswith opened her eyes and stared up at the young woman bending over her."
Best part: The mix of stories was very good.
Worst part: After long exposures Huff gets a little predictable.
Imaginary Theme Song: Something by They Might Be Giants.
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Fans of the author, fans of silly fantasy.
Related Reads: Blood Bank by the same author, anything by Terry Pratchett.

I only have one more book to review from 2009 and then I'll be done! Woot! And they were both chosen on the basis that they were pieces of fluff, so the reviews should be easy too.
