Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this lyrical fairy tale from fantasy veteran Attanasio (The Crow: Hellbound), geeky teen Chester "Chet" Hubert must rescue flame-haired daydreamer Flannery Lake from the Otherworld, when all he really wanted was a date. Flannery's grandmother, Nedra Fell, screws up a Wiccan ritual in an attempt to cheat Death, who decides Flannery will make a welcome substitute. After Flannery is hit by a school bus, she falls into a coma and her soul is lured to the Otherworld by a deceitful "techno-pagan" who promises her love but plans on feeding her to a demonic dragon. Luckily, Nedra convinces the smitten Chet to rescue Flannery in a colorful adventure reminiscent of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth and as magical as the best work of Charles de Lint, Jane Yolen and Holly Black. (Sept.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
A young girl lies in a coma, and her grandmother must convince an admiring classmate to battle for the girl's life in another realm-the Otherworld of the Theena Shee, a.k.a. fairy folk. In a minimalist style that is nevertheless rich with detail and nuance, Attanasio (Radix) combines Celtic mythology with Orpheus's journey to the Underworld to tell a tale of young love that resonates with both timelessness and immediacy. A solid addition to larger fantasy collections. [Attanasio also writes under the name Adam Lee.-Ed.] Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
