This book is Charles de Lint at his best - a magical mixture of computers and faerie. His love of Celtic music and the folk scene blends nicely with his mixture of European and Native American mythology. He creates likeable, realistic characters that you'd love to spend an evening in the pub with. Any book with de Lint's name on the cover is a guarantee of an excellent read.
