A young woman locked in rage yet seeking magic, Ash is drawn into a wondrous Otherworld of totems and dryads, living tarots and mystic charms. At the same time, Ash's cousin Nina is stalked by an Otherworld demon-a manitou who can force her mind and soul into the bodies of beasts. Ash must find the strength to overcome her own anger, learn the full power of magic, and save Nina before she becomes the manitou's weapon, turning the faerie realm into an arctic wasteland. De Lint fans will relish this urban and otherworldly fantasy, partially set in the author's trademark Newford. From Goodreads.
I like the way Charles De Lint mixes the real world and the spirit world. His characters always have some dealings with the spirit world. This is the second book in the Newford series and I have decided to read them all in order. Though I am not sure this is necessary as most of them are individual stories.
