Author: Charles de Lint
Genre: Urban fantasy
Setting: American desert, modern day.
Reason for Reading: I read almost all of deLint's books as they come out.
Finished In: Days
Copyright Date: November 2010
Cover: A stylized dragon, Asian-style. At the bottom is a small italicized tag line - "His secret lives on his skin."
First line: "The boy had finally fallen asleep."
Best part: I liked seeing deLint tackle some new characters and ideas.
Worst part: What is it about dragons and gangs, anyway? How did that get to be so cliched?
