Jack of Kinrowan

An acknowledged classic of contemporary fantasy, Jack of Kinrowan brings together in one volume Charles de Lint's rollicking saga of wild faerie magic on the streets of the city.

Jack, the Giant Killer

A faceless gang of bikers on Wild Hunt through the streets of present-day Ottawa hurtles young Jacky Rowan across the threshold into the perilous land of Faerie. There, to her dismay, she is hailed as the Jack of Kinrowan, a once-and-future trickster hero whose lot is to save the Elven Courts from unimaginable evil.

Drink Down the Moon

Once the realm of Faerie drew its power from the Moon herself. But now a ghastly creature has stolen that power and enslaved the Fair Folk--and Jacky Rowan herself. Only Johnny Faw, a hadsome fiddler unaware of his magical gifts, has the power to set them free.

Synopsis:

In an acknowledged classic of contemporary fantasy, "Jack of Kinrowan" brings together in one volume Charles de Lint's two-book saga of wild faerie magic on the streets of the city.

About the Author

Born in Holland in 1951, Charles de Lint grew up in Canada, with a few years off in Turkey, Lebanon, and Switzerland.

Although his first novel was 1984's The Riddle of the Wren, it was with Moonheart, published later that same year, that de Lint made his mark, and established him at the forefront of "urban fantasy," modern fantasy storytelling set on contemporary city streets. Moonheart was set in and around "Newford," an imaginary modern North American city, and many of de Lint's subsequent novels have been set in Newford as well, with a growing cast of characters who weave their way in and out of the stories. The Newford novels include Spirit Walk, Memory and Dream, Trader, Someplace To Be Flying, Forests of the Heart, The Onion Girl, and Spirits in the Wires. In addition, de Lint has published several collections of Newford short stories, including Moonlight and Vines, for which he won the World Fantasy Award. Among de Lint's many other novels are Mulengro, Jack the Giant-Killer, and The Little Country.

Married since 1980 to his fellow musician MaryAnn Harris, Charles de Lint lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Rachel Foerstner, October 4, 2010 (view all comments by Rachel Foerstner)
Charles DeLint converted me from a strict Non-fiction diet, to a diet of fiction that is filled with fey, ogres, and the occasional pixy. He paints worlds so rich with life and colors that you cannot help but go along for the ride. This is one of my all time favorites that I recently pulled out for the billionth re-read. Jack of Kinrowan is a wonderful telling of jack and the bean stalk for a new generation. Delint has a wonderful way of bringing magic into the ordinary, and I fell in love with Jack from the start. She is such a mess that I just had to love her. I cannot say enough good things about this book! If you are at all interested in urban fantasy then you should give this book a try.
