"A contemporary fantasy classic."--Publishers Weekly Guitarist Eddi McCandry has just dumped her boyfriend and their band when she finds herself running through the Minneapolis night, pursued by a sinister man and a huge, terrifying dog. As she soon discovers, the two creatures are one and the same: a phouka, a faerie being who has chosen Eddi to be the mortal pawn in the age-old war between the Seelie and Unseelie Courts. Eddi isn't interested--but she doesn't have a choice. For more than her own survival is at stake. To save the city--and the man--that she loves, Eddi must face off against the Dark Queen of the Unseelie Court in the ultimate duel of music and magic. "Emma Bull is really good."--Neil Gaiman "One of the most engaging fantasies I've read in a long time."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune "Knifes through the fantasy genre like a sharp blade of wind."--Charles de Lint
