Publisher's Summary

Pittsburgh, PA has been magically transported to a world of elves and magic in order to stave off a monstrous invasion of Earth. Now Tinker, once a downtrodden waif from that city, but now a full-blooded elf ruler, must root out and destroy an evil plot that involves the kidnapping and breeding of elf children.

Tinker uncovers ancient secrets and a web of betrayal as she searches for the lost elflings. Meanwhile, the orc-like oni gangster kidnappers will stop at nothing to win, so neither can she. At five foot nothing, Tinker's greatest weapon has always been her intelligence. Politics, she discovers, is a battle of wits, and Tinker comes heavily armed.

mad genius... and her bodyguards...

making the world sit and beg one dimension at a time... with Elfhome falling into chaos Tinker and allies must work together to keep from killing each other while fighting their common enemy... plot has been done... but writing is fresh... charecters have depth, and narrator breathed life into them... book is multi point of views...

I've read it FIVE TIMES!

My favorite in this series. It's awesome getting some POV from Oilcan and Tommy Chang. I love getting to know all the characters in these books and the unique hybrid of cultures Wen Spencer developes in the series. You get a real FEEL for Elfhomes Pittsburgh and how the people in it live.

Great story with great reading

I picked this series at random from the website "also bought" section. It pulled my wife and I right in. We have consumed the first 3 in short order. The author can keep us guessing while also making us laugh.

On to the next book.

It just gets better

Elfhome continues the story of Tinker, and the Pittsburgh displaced onto another world, but in this book we get to see more of Oilcan, and that oh-so-reluctant-hero, Tommy. The war heats up, as Tinker and Oilcan have to figure out just who is actually behind everything.

This is a very satisfying listen, the story supported by excellent narration. Tanya Eby doesn't falter, even as the cast expands, adding richness to the tapestry created by Wen Spencer. I hate having to wait for the next installment!

Now sf/fantasy fans can get everything in 1 series

This is a very satisfying series and a lot of fun, as a super-intelligent, clever, and beautiful orphan girl is thrust into a world of immortal elves and hideously cruel monsters. It is very moving at times to watch this loving, conciliatory girl find love and use for her talents with the fantastic beings she finds herself among after a dimension-altering space gate moves her city into the world of the elves and oni. Many bizarre and wonderful creatures find reason to support her fight against prejudice and treachery as they fight some brutally sadistic enemies.
Sporadic jarring lapses into vulgar profanity were the only negatives I noticed, as the love sequences focussed more on the parties feelings and fulfillment and not on clinical anatomy descriptions.
