This was a magical and amazing book that transported me to a reality where the Horned One still roams the woods accompanied by various companions, both good and evil.

This wondrous tale involves a single mother, her otherworldly teenage daughter and a former mob hitman living outside a small town in Canada where mystical creatures still roam.

To throw some wrenches into the works are the mother's larcenous ex-husband and the hitman's former employer. How it all resolves is both gripping and awesome.

This is the type of book that is rather hard to describe but once you start reading you are transported. When I finished, I felt as though I were emerging from a trip to another world still filled with mystery and magic.
