Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A mentally disadvantaged young woman who sees what other people don't, a street musician, a social worker, and a bag-lady join forces with an "Adept of the Light" to fight the encroaching darkness that stalks the streets of modern Toronto. In a departure from the "strict" fantasy of CHILD OF THE GROVE (LJ 5/15/88) and THE LAST WIZARD, Huff's real-world fantasy presents an enlightened, compassionate view of the forgotten heroes of urban society. Highly recommended.

    Awesome read!

    I have had a dog-eared paperback that was falling apart from constant rereads. Delighted to see it was available on Nook. This just covers my fantasy/Pagan loving self. Tanya Huff never fails me.
