I really enjoyed this. Twins Bess and Laurel are visiting Tucson to play a few gigs when they meet some people who are very connected to the spirit world. De Lint is excellent at mixing folklore (in this case Native American) with modern life. Having been to Tucson a couple times, this story really resonated with me - I was familiar with quite a few of the places he mentioned. If you're interested in folklore with a modern twist, check this out.

Also I realized after starting this that it's part of his Newford collection so Bess and Laurel have a backstory that I'm very interested in! ( )

A wonderful blend of fantasy, romance, and spirituality, with myths from various cultures of the American West. This is a very unique book, and captured my attention throughout. It inspired me to read more of de Lint's writing. ( )

A story about two of the Dillard sisters (Bess and Laurel), but also about some of the animal people and a deal that was made a century ago that allowed two born animals to become human. A lovely, lovely book, with illustrations by Charles Vess. And for an ARC, not that many errors! :-) I always love the stories about the animal people, the idea of them is so fascinating to me. ( )

I live in the area where this book takes place, and he captures the drama and the mystery of the Southwest admirably. Love the illustrations too. ( )
