I generally love de Lint's offbeat urban fantasy tales and this is no exception. The bonus here is that this book is really two novellas under one roof, both featuring the same main characters.

This is an omnibus edition containing Jack the Giant-Killer and its sequel, Drink Down the Moon. Id read the first novel before, but not the second.
Both concern two young human women Jacky, and her best friend Kate, who turn out to be destined to be particularly useful to Faerie the magical world which co-exists with our own, but which most people do not see. Although much reduced in modern times, the Seelie and Unseelie courts are still in conflict with one another not to mention there may be other and greater threats. Although untried and seemingly unlikely heroes, Jacky and Kate may be the only ones who can save Kinrowan.
