-----From back cover:-----
The magic is hidden . . . Unseen by mortal eyes, magical creatures carry on a secret existence--in the streets and parks of a modern city.
The magic is lost . . . The wild fairies drew their luck from the Moon herself--until a heartless wizard stole their power away.
But the magic is real! Jacky Rowan slew a dragon once . . . but now she's imprisoned in a wizard's tower, and only young Johnny Faw has the music--and the magic--to set her free . . . only he doesn't know it.
Another great urban fantasy from the master!

Book is in good cond.
Early urban fantasy, sequel to Jack the Giant-Killer. Jacky Rowan and Kate Hazel return; it seems a rogue wizard is in the area stealing the "luck" and life from the other magical inhabitants. Jacky needs to battle the wizard but makes more than one boneheaded decision and has to be saved. I didn't care for this one as much as the previous just due to that. DeLint's mythos of the "Jack" means they get by on luck more than smarts, but that sure seemed to put her friends in bad positions. But the other characters are appealing and the whole idea of faerie existing almost side-by-side with our world is fun.
