Charles De Lint
Adult Fiction DE LINT
Summary: "Lily is a photojournalist, stealing away from the music scene she usually covers to pursue bizarre rumors of "animal people" living in the ruins of the Tombs - the city's darkest slums. Hank, on the other hand, knows the crumbling Tombs all too well. This is the part of the city he calls home, creating a life and a ragtag family on streets where many fear to tread. One night, in a brutal incident, their 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: the animal people." "For the animal people walk among us. Native Americans call them the First People, but they have never left, and they live disguised among us. And they claim the city for their own. Coyote the Trickster, wily, dangerous, and utterly compelling. Jackdaw the storyteller, nursing the secret wounds of tragedy. Raven, guarding the pot that holds the birth and destruction of life itself. The unpredictable Fox, the deadly Cuckoos, the Wolves that prowl city streets. And the Crow Girls, two charming young punks who delight in mischief, gossip, thievery...and who are much, much more than they seem." "Not only have Hank and Lily stumbled onto a secret, they've stumbled into a war. But in this battle for the city's mythic soul, nothing is quite as it appears."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
