Inventor, girl genius Tinker lives in a near-future Pittsburgh which now exists mostly in the land of the elves. She runs her salvage business, pays her taxes, and tries to keep the local ambient level of magic down with gadgets of her own design. When a pack of wargs chase an Elven noble into her scrap yard, life as she knows it takes a serious detour. Tinker finds herself taking on the Elven court, the NSA, the Elven Interdimensional Agency, technology smugglers and a college-minded Xenobiologist as she tries to stay focused on what's really important - her first date. Armed with an intelligence the size of a planet, steel-toed boots, and a junkyard dog attitude, Tinker is ready to kick butt to get her first kiss.

I love Tinker, I think this book is a good representation of the choices you make and what can happen due to lack of communication, or lack of understanding the communication.

For such a supposedly smart girl, Tinker was sometimes a Too Stupid to Live heroine. Still, this was an enjoyable story and I'm looking forward to learning more about this world in the next book.

I cannot say enough how much I love Tinker. Wen Spencer is so creative and writes wonderfully unique stories.

Love it!

Can't wait for the third book in the Tinker universe.

this book is a lot of fun. how do you deal with a magical world and its people. Tinker thinks she knows how to get along but it turns out that she doesn't know as much as she thought. And all the complications arising from her ignornance. The book has magic, science fiction, romance and teen afe angst. The humour is sutle. Itotally enjoyed this book a d the resst of the serie to the point that I bought the books.
