By Charles de Lint
Paperback, 560 pages
Jilly and Geordie have been best friends for years, circling around each other but never admitting to themselves just how much they love each other. Caught up in a war between the native spirits of the land and the fairies, the two set off on their first adventure together in years. When Jilly finds herself trapped in her own mind, battling monsters from her past and Geordie is banished even farther away, they finally realize just how much they want to be together.
I’m a big fan of de Lint’s work, though I haven’t read as much of it as I’d like. One of my favorite books is The Onion Girl, of which Jilly is the central character. I enjoyed reading about her magical adventures again and following some familiar and new characters.
