From Library Journal
Canadian de Lint put himself on the fantasy map with this 1984 novel that shifts between the Wales of yore and the Ottawa of today. A mythical fantasy for all large collections.

“He shows that, far from being mere escapism, contemporary fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time.” ―Fantasy and Science Fiction
“Charles de Lint is a folksinger as well as a writer and it is this voice we hear...both new and old, lyric, longing, touched by magic.” ―Jane Yolen
“A finely textured song of a tale of power, wonder, and suspense. Keenly felt, satisfying, fully realized, its essence lingers when the reading's done.” ―Roger Zelazny
“Mr. de Lint's handling of ancient folklore to weave into an entirely new pattern has never, to my knowledge, been equalled.” ―Andre Norton
“For more than a decade, Charles de Lint has enjoyed a reputation as one of the world's leading fantasists, thanks largely to his enchanting 1984 novel Moonheart.” ―Toronto Star
Top customer reviews
I strongly recommend all of Charles de Lint's books. I was delighted to see them coming out in electronic format, as physical limitations make it difficult to read p-books now. de Lint books occupy 48 inches of bookshelf in my library, including this one in a large paperback format.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend THIS edition of the ebook - if you can read physical books, get it in paper format. There are pages missing, and words misinterpreted... For example - in the ebook edition, chapter 1 ends with the sentence "Would you rather I just left all this stuff in the back, then?" In my paper book, ISBN 0-312-89004-4, chapter 1 has 4.5 more pages. In the ebook edition, in chapter 2, describing the guests in the house, there is this sentence: "One evening a whole troupe of carnies descended on the House, bailing everyone with their conversation..." That made no sense to me no matter how I looked at it so I looked at the paper edition - "bailing" should have been "baffling". The notes indicate that there was a fix. I'm sorry to say that it was not fixed enough.
Good book full of characters you, or at least I, would want to meet. Well, some that you wouldn't...but, still.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for republishing on Kindle. I have one of the very first editions that came out in paperback and loved it so much. Sadly, as I got older, I couldn't read the fine print. Now with my Kindle I can make the print very large and I'm so happy to re-discover this wonderful book once again. It shaped my life years ago and it is fun to revisit. I have embraced the digital publishing world late in life and am writing my own stories. Thank you so much for encouraging me. I look forward to buying all of your original works that I bought in paper.
