From Library Journal
A mentally disadvantaged young woman who sees what other people don't, a street musician, a social worker, and a bag-lady join forces with an "Adept of the Light" to fight the encroaching darkness that stalks the streets of modern Toronto. In a departure from the "strict" fantasy of Child of the Grove ( LJ 5/15/88) and The Last Wizard , Huff's real-world fantasy presents an enlightened, compassionate view of the forgotten heroes of urban society. Highly recommended.
