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.

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.

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.
