The old house Kellygnow, an artists' and writers' colony, welcomes and shelters those who are looking for a little more out of life, a little less reality. Bettina San Miguel is not an artist, but a model, who thought to stay at Kellygnow only as long as it took to find an apartment in Newford ...but a week turns into a month and before long she realises she's home. Then the brujeria in her blood calls to the spirits and she finds herself walking into myth time, that piece of the past where the city didn't exist yet, or maybe in the future when it is long gone. There, she meets one of los lobos, a wolf of a man, as drawn to Bettina as she is to him. But there are others of his kind who are also drawn to the warmth of humanity but for different reasons: they intend to claim the waking world for their own ...Charles De Lint's stories of Newford and the magic that permeates reality blends Irish, Native American and European myth into a seamless and wonderful fantasy.
