really liked it
bookshelves: mythic-legendary-fiction
Recommended for: Mythic fiction, urban fantasy lovers

Great read of a modern Mythic Fiction based on Celtic mythology, primarily from Welsh sources interlaced with North American Indigene mythos (Ottawa). Many would consider it an Urban Fantasy today, but I found its use of its ancient sources most compelling. It is filled with inside jokes and literary illusions. Moonheart can be read on several levels from teen/YA to adult. It would be a great book for group discussion for sharing Celtic and Ottawa mythos and discovering the jokes and illusions.

Book 1 of the Ottawa and the Valley series.

Denis You definitely got me interested in this one. My step daughter absolutely loved "The Onion Girl" by de Lint but don't read much (if any) clear-cut fantasy novels.

Gregoire i'm not so impressed by the other book in this serie but Mooheart is forever on my "best read' shelve... i also like Some Place to be Flying (a bit darker than Moonheart) by the author
