About the book:

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
