Product description

From Amazon

Jack of Kinrowan brings together two Charles de Lint novels, Jack, the Giant Killer and Drink Down the Moon to make a contemporary riff on the classic English fairy tale. Jack is a rollicking saga of wild Faerie magic on the streets of Ottawa. A menacing gang of mystical bikers in the service of evil giants spin through Ottawa, and in the process hurtle twentysomething Jacky Rowan into Faerie. The eminently plucky Jacky finds herself hailed as Jack of Kinrowan, a trickster hero whose lot it is to rescue the Elven Courts from the unimaginably evil giants. With the help of her friend Kate Hazel and handsome Celtic fiddler Johnny Faw, Jacky sets out to free the Faerie folk in this fabulous fantasy adventure. Jack, the Giant Killer won the 1988 Aurora Award, Canada's top science fiction and fantasy prize, and the two novels combined create a first-rate urban fantasy in de Lint's characteristic style, mixing traditional fantasy lore--in this case Celtic mythology--with a contemporary setting. Jack of Kinrowan ingeniously moves between the world of Faerie and contemporary Ottawa, drawing the reader into an amazing world where anything can happen. --Jeffrey Canton

Review

“There is no better writer now than Charles de Lint at bringing out the magic in contemporary life....The best of the post-Stephen King contemporary fantasists, the one with the clearest vision of the possibilities of magic in a modern setting.” ―Orson Scott Card

“A superb storyteller..de Lint has a flair for tales that blur the lines between the mundane world and magical reality.” ―Library Journal

“You open a de Lint story, and like the interior of a very genial Pandora's box, the atmosphere is suddenly full of deep woods and quaint city streets and a magic that's nowhere near so far removed as Middle Earth.” ―James P. Blaylock
