When Sara and Jamie discovered the artifacts, they sensed the pull of a dim, distant place, a world of misty forests, ancient magics, mythical beings, ageless bards … and restless evil.

Now, with their friends and enemies alike—Blue, the biker; Keiran, the folk musician; the Inspector from the RCMP; and the mysterious Tom Hengyr—Sara and Jamie are drawn into this enchanted land through the portals of a sprawling downtown edifice that straddles two worlds.

From ancient Wales to the streets of present-day Ottawa, Moonheart entrances listeners with its tale of this world and the one at the very edge of sight. A tale of music, motorcycles, and fey folk beyond the shadows of the moon, Moonheart is pure magic.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An ambitious hybrid…De Lint sustains his balance between ordinary reality and legend with skill.”

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “Charles de Lint has enjoyed a reputation as one of the world's leading fantasists, thanks largely to his enchanting 1984 novel Moonheart.”

    Star (Toronto)

  • “He shows that, far from being mere escapism, contemporary fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time.”

    Fantasy and Science Fiction

  • Moonheart…has elements of urban fantasy, strong underpinnings of Native American and Celtic mythology, and more than a hint of The X-Files-type government conspiracy…Paul Michael Garcia did a very nice job with the reading…his narration added an appropriate gravitas to the more mythopoeic elements of the story.”


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Louella Mahabir | 2/18/2014

    " I've had better Charles de Lint but that's because I read him backward. He gets better with age and this is good. "

    " I have no recollection of how I came to Canadian sci-fi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Josie | 2/9/2014

    " This is probably the earliest one of de Lint's books that I've read, and though it's certainly good, it really can't compare with the later Newford works. The emphasis on the police and pre-X-Files style of paranormal investigation was a bit at odds with the way I have come to learn the world works for de Lint's books, but it wasn't too distracting. I found the introduction to time travel a bit too sudden and confusing, and de Lint's comfort level with the native culture in the Otherworld isn't very strong, either. But I definitely liked the Tamson House, and am looking forward to reading the next book about it. "

    " One of my most favorite books EVER !! One of the best that Charles has ever written. A very good example of the Urban Fairy Tale Genre. "
