Summon the Keeper

{4.5/5} “Keepers capable of abusing the power granted by the lineage were rare. Claire had only heard of it happening twice before in their entire history. The battles, Keeper vs Keeper, good vs evil, had been won but both times at a terrible cost. The first had resulted in the eruption of Vesuvius and the loss of Pompeii. The second, in disco.”

Summon the Keeper by Tanya Huff, published in 1998

Claire Hansen was summoned to Kingston. Needing a place to stay, she finds the Elysian Fields Guest House. The next morning she finds out that the proprietor has given the hotel to her. Not only does the hotel contain an evil woman who’s been magically put to sleep, it also has a hole in the universe. Her cat Austin says the cook/janitor Dean will help — even though he didn’t know magic existed before today.

It’s hilarious — Huff has a glorious sense of humour.

It’s about dealing with a bystander, a ghost who’s been dead for 70 years, a cat who talks, a vampire guest, and something from Hell.

This is the 2nd time I’ve read it. This time I will read the sequels.

I’ve read 2 books by Huff. I read Gate of Darkness, Circle of Light some years ago.
