Enchanting tale of a girl who must come to terms with living in two worlds. I'm not usually a fan of the vignette style of storytelling, but the author makes it work here.

This is the first book I've read by the author and I'll be picking up more.

Reading this book was a little like venturing back to the 80s while de Lint worked at exploring his writing style. I am never much the fan of an author casting another author as the main character, and this book was no exception. Though I enjoyed the plot line and some of the suspense, I felt the book was somewhat predictable. It was obvious that de Lint was just beginning to explore his style as an author, and I felt the character development was not yet deep enough to truly capture me. It's interesting to look back at de Lint's earlier work since I am such a big fan of the Newford stories and novels he writes (more recent) and the yarns he weaves of characters in this fictional city (Newford) continue to keep me wanting more.

A brilliant modern fantasy story. I personally love authors as characters, and fell in love with Cat Midhir in this story. Well written and entertaining.

This was the first book be de Lint that I read. I loved it! I always think of Jane Siberry when I think of the musician described in the book. The bookstore was a nice touch as well.
