Eddi McCandry sings rock and roll. But her boyfriend just dumped her, her band just broke up, and life could hardly be worse. Walking home through downtown Minneapolis on a dark night, she finds herself drafted into an invisible war between the faerie folk. Now more than her own survival is at risk -- and her own preferences, musical and personal, are very much beside the point.
By turns tough and lyrical, astonishing and fabulously down-to-earth, War for the Oaks is one of those fantasy novels that's as much about this world as the other one. It's a story about real love and loyalty, about real music and musicians, about false glamor and true art. It's funny, moving, and will change the way you hear and see your own daily life.
