When Auntie Catherine warns the family of an approaching asteroid, the Gales scramble to keep humans from going the way of the dinosaurs. Fortunately for the world, they’re wielding a guitar and a dragon.

The Gale family can change the world with the charms they cast, which has caused some supernaturally complicated family shenanigans in the past. So when NASA and Doomsday Dan confirm Auntie Catherine’s dire prediction, Charlotte “Charlie” Gale turns to the family for help.

But Allie is unavailable because the universe seems determined to have her produce the seventh son of a seventh son of a seventh son of a Gale.  And the Aunties can’t help because they’re tied to the earth – although they are happy to provide their delicious, trademark pies.  And in the end, all Charlie has is a guitar…

…and Jack. The Dragon Prince, and a Sorcerer.

But Charlie might like Jack just a little too much, and Jack might like Charlie a little too much in return. Actually, between Allie’s hormones, the Aunties trying to force her and Jack into ritual, the Courts having way too much fun at the end of days, and Jack’s sudden desire to sacrifice himself for the good of the many, Charlie’s fairly certain that the asteroid is the least of her problems.

The Gales are going to need more than pie to save the world from an incoming asteroid. But together there isn’t anything they can’t deal with – except possibly each other.

These Gale Women are delightful!! This fantasy series focuses on the many members of the Gale family; each book revolves around one of the younger cousins. This latest title sounds like it’s going to be a blast! I can’t wait to see how Charlie deals with the young Jack. And to see how crazy the Aunties are making Charlie and everyone else. They really are a riot. I also enjoy that this is such a different set-up of a story. It’s set in Canada, and is sort of a modern-day fantasy. There are elements of urban fantasy, but I don’t think the series really falls squarely into that category. And it’s always at heart, a story about family. I can’t get enough!

  1. I’ve never ever heard of this series before either but it sounds like something I could really enjoy! I’ll have to look up the first book, thanks for bringing it to my attention 😀 Love how it’s set in Canada too! I hope you get your hands on it soon ^^

    • Actually, its neither. It technically falls into the adult fantasy category. The cover does give it a bit of a YA vibe, though, but the main characters have all been in their mid to late 20s. But it’s a lot of fun regardless!
