Book Review: Uncanny Times (Huntsmen #1) by Laura Anne Gilman

Uncanny Times (Huntsmen, #1)Uncanny Times by Laura Anne Gilman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fun read! I meant to write a review right after finishing this one, but I got busy, and now my memories aren’t as clear.

What I do recall, though, is all good. Aaron and Rosemary are siblings rather than a couple or co-workers with unresolved sexual tension. It’s nice to read a paranormal mystery without a romantic storyline for a change! Like most siblings, they don’t always see eye-to-eye. They have a good working relationship, though, and they’re an effective team as Huntsmen.

Gilman does an excellent job of showing us strong, capable characters who aren’t perfect. American society placed significantly more strictures on women in 1913 than it does today, and Rosemary has to respect those strictures in public while disregarding them privately to do her job. She walks that balance much better than I could!

I am definitely looking forward to the next Huntsmen novel!
