Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young woman locked in rage yet seeking magic, Ash is drawn into a wondrous Otherworld of totems and dryads, living tarots and mystic charms. At the same time, Ash's cousin Nina is stalked by an Otherworld demon-a manitou who can force her mind and soul into the bodies of beasts. Ash must find the strength to overcome her own anger, learn the full power of magic, and save Nina before she becomes the manitou's weapon, turning the faerie realm into an arctic wasteland. De Lint fans will relish this urban and otherworldly fantasy, partially set in the author's trademark Newford.

"One of the most original fantasy writers currently working." (Booklist)

Review:

"A compelling fantasy that combines elements of Native American and Celtic mythology to create a fluid and unexpected otherworld....While Nina is a rather bland character, Ash and her colorful friends and adversaries, and icons such as the strange tarot cards that foretell her journey and the pomegranate that is pivotal in her quest, come alive through the text." School Library Journal

Review:

"[T]he plot is compelling, and the Native American flavor is unusual. The conversational writing style might even encourage some realistic fiction fans to give this fantasy a try." Kathryn Pierson, Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Review:

"As always, de Lint introduces us to some wonderful characters....This is a wonderful story, and highly recommended for young adults as well as adults." Marian McHugh, Green Man Review

Review:

"A confusing jumble of symbols, dreams, and mythologies, encumbered by much reference to current rock music and fashions that will soon be outdated." Horn Book

Review:

"Another excellent urban fantasy from de Lint...beautifully written, fascinating." Locus

Review:

"Masterful....A wonderful adventure of supernatural fantasy forces. Highly recommended." VOYA

Review:

"Charles de Lint shows that fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time." Fantasy and Science Fiction

Synopsis:

When a manitou, a winter earth spirit that is withering and in need of blood, fastens upon Nina, her sixteen-year-old cousin Ash enters the Otherworld to stop the spirit.

If you've never read anything by Charles de Lint, you should. This is the first of his Newford series, and a great place to start your discovery of this brilliant author.
