Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff

Summon the Keeper

Cosmic accidents require procedures to keep the world safe. Thus the role of the Keeper, a protector who keeps evil at bay.

Claire Hansen is the Keeper, who along with her familiar, a cat named Austin, is summoned to a B & B where an opening to hell exists in the basement.  Claire is not a happy camper and is afraid that this particular assignment may require her presence... forever.  Not what she had in mind for the rest of her life. 

This is a light and funny book filled with an odd assortment of characters and plenty of contemporary allusions (although dated now, as the book was published in 1998).  

Two love interests:  a handsome young caretaker and a sexy Quebecois ghost, who is definitely missing female companionship.  Add "Sleeping Beauty" in Room 6, a vampire, some werewolves, and other unusual characters to the mix and the result is often hilarious mayhem.

  1. I have such fond memories of this series! I considered giving away my Tanya Huff books, but decided against it in the end. I just couldn't. I may want to read them again!

  2. Tanya Huff... I think I may have one or two books on my shelf, I'm not sure. Nonetheless, this sounds like a fun read with all those supernatural characters.

  3. Wendy - I'm not sure why I chose to order the paper back. Maybe I saw something on your blog. It was fun!

    Melody - I've not read anything else by Tanya Huff, but may look into her Vampire series, too. :)
