I get the feeling that de Lint writes the same book over and over again-- plucky heroine from hardscrabble background who reads a lot of fantasy novels meets misunderstood pagan mystery creatures. That said, they're well-written for the most part, as is this one.

I really enjoyed this story but it was a rather odd one--the Mafia in rural Canada is an interesting mix, especially when you add in a hidden village and some earth spirits. It's a keeper. And it prompted me to read "Wind in the Willows"--a book I never read as a child.

This is a Charles de Lint classic!! Greenmantle shows us the mystery and common element of true faith behind all the different religions in the world while combining it with action and suspense. A great read!!
