Fantasy Life

I read Fantasy Life a long time ago when I first discovered Kristin Kathryn Rusch.  It is a wonderful book, full of magical creatures and extraordinary people with unusual powers.  She begins by introducing us to four generations of women with special powers who are protecting a very unusual sanctuary.  While there are magical elements to the book, there is a central mystery that is only revealed at the very end.

The author has a surprising way of weaving the magical creatures into the modern world that is believable and relevent.  The central theme of the book: the oil spills that cause havok on the environment, is woven into this fantasy. The book moves between the fantastical and “real” world without seams- and when the two conflict – it is interesting.
