Music, Mischief, and Magic Laurel and Bess Dillard are charismatic bluegrass musicians enjoying the success of their first Southwestern tour. But the Dillard girls know that magical adventures are always at hand. Upon meeting two mysterious strangers at a gig, the red-headed twins are drawn into an age-old, mystical wager along the Medicine Road. One day, seeing a red dog chasing a jackalope, Coyote Woman gave them both human forms. They became Jim Changing Dog and Alice Corn Hair. In return, both Jim and Alice must find true love within a hundred years, or their "five-fingered" forms will be forfeit. Alice has found her soul mate, but trickster Jim is unwilling to settle down--until he sets eyes upon free-spirited Bess Dillard. Yet time is running out for the red dog and the jackalope. In just two weeks, they will journey to their reckoning at the Medicine Wheel. Meanwhile, a motorcycle-riding seductress and a vengeful rattlesnake woman are eager to meddle, and Bess and Laurel, caught in a web of love and lies, must find their own paths into the spirit world.… (mere)

The two musical twins from Seven Wild Sisters are back and touring in Arizona. I was just there for vacation, so it was fun to read the descriptions of the beautiful desert in that area. They encounter de Lint's version of the local faerie - spirits of the land - a red dog and a jackalope(!) who have been living as humans for the past 100 years. Taking it as pure fiction, it's a charming adventure. Part of me does feel niggled about de Lint writing about native American lore. ( )

I really enjoyed this. Twins Bess and Laurel are visiting Tucson to play a few gigs when they meet some people who are very connected to the spirit world. De Lint is excellent at mixing folklore (in this case Native American) with modern life. Having been to Tucson a couple times, this story really resonated with me - I was familiar with quite a few of the places he mentioned. If you're interested in folklore with a modern twist, check this out.

Also I realized after starting this that it's part of his Newford collection so Bess and Laurel have a backstory that I'm very interested in! ( )

A wonderful blend of fantasy, romance, and spirituality, with myths from various cultures of the American West. This is a very unique book, and captured my attention throughout. It inspired me to read more of de Lint's writing. ( )

A story about two of the Dillard sisters (Bess and Laurel), but also about some of the animal people and a deal that was made a century ago that allowed two born animals to become human. A lovely, lovely book, with illustrations by Charles Vess. And for an ARC, not that many errors! :-) I always love the stories about the animal people, the idea of them is so fascinating to me. ( )
