Deitz mixes traditional Celtic magic with a touch of Native American shamanism, and throws in some heavy metal/rock and roll for a truly wild ride. Several college students walk the magic roads into Faerie to recover things lost or to discover things unknown. Very good.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Halloween is rapidly approaching. In the chill of late October, three childhood friends gather in the forest to partake in a dangerous rite: David Sullivan and Alec McLean, who once walked the world of Faerie... and young Aikin Daniels, a "Mighty Hunter" desperate to join the select brotherhood of those who have trod the Straight Tracks. In the moonlight, in separate dreams, their quests are revealed to them - enticing each into the Otherworlds with promises of glorious adventure, lost love regained... and vengeance. But All Hallows is no time for a group of inquisitive college students to be traipsing back and forth across forbidden borders. For this Samhain night is owned by a dark and hideous power older than Faerie itself - an irresistible force that combs the Tracks in search of blood and souls. Only the dawn can save those whom he pursues - an eternity for David, Alec, Aikin and their friend Liz Hughes, who find themselves at the mercy of unrestrained chaos in a perilous, uncertain place. But suddenly there is no escape - not even in their own familiar mortal realm of cars and friends and rock 'n' roll. For the World Walls are breaking down - and can no longer restrain the terrible mad ride of the Wild Hunt.
