Publisher Description

Lily is a photojournalist in search of the “animal people” who supposedly haunt the city’s darkest slums. Hank is a slumdweller who knows the bad streets all too well. One night, in a brutal incident, their two lives collide—uptown Lily and downtown Hank, each with a quest and a role to play in the secret drama of the city’s oldest inhabitants.

For the animal people walk among us. Native Americans call them the First People, but they have never left, and they claim the city for their own.

Not only have Hank and Lily stumbled onto a secret, they’ve stumbled into a war. And in this battle for the city’s soul, nothing is quite as it appears.

  • “The reader does not have to be strictly a fan of either thrillers or fantasy to thoroughly enjoy this delightful tale.”

    - Washington Post
  • “De Lint is as engaging a stylist as Stephen King, but considerably more inventive and ambitious.”

    - Globe and Mail (Toronto)
  • “De Lint…clearly has no equal as an urban fantasist and very few equals among fantasists as a folklorist. First-rate.”

    - Booklist
  • “An enthralling blend of old European and Native American mythology, seamlessly worked into a modern setting and situation. De Lint’s best so far.”
