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.

This is a classic Charles de Lint novel filled with other world mythic adventures and suspense. I like his characters and imaginary urban setting. I always go through de Lint withdrawals after reading one of his stories. Good thing the library has a pretty good collection of his writings.

I've never read a De Lint novel before this and am not sure I'll read one in the future, but this was a wonderful read

All I can say is Wow wow wow! After finishing this book, I immediately wanted to start over and read it again! Anyone who thinks urban is trashy has to try Charles De Lint. This is really good writing!
