Forests of the Heart book. Once again Charles de Lint weaves the mythic traditions of many cultures into a seamless cloth, bringing folklore, music, and unforgettable characters to life on modern city streets.

As for Forests of the Heart, it is classic de Lint storytelling. The storyline and characters are engaging. Perhaps de Lint is their only window on the larger world of the imagination, but I think that's just his conceit. I found myself four chapters into the book in a few hours time. For all that, though, the injection of the American Southwest is a welcome zest in the Newford series. And Bettina, her lobo, the cadejos, as well as the Creek sisters - he made them live.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied. The title's a bit lame, but I enjoyed the story. It was a typical de Lint with a cast of characters from different walks of life. This one focused on a clash of supernatural beings - and journeys into.

Forests of the Heart is an enthralling voyage into the seamier side of urban magic. My opinion of this magical book disagrees with some of the opinions below

My opinion of this magical book disagrees with some of the opinions below. I feel that de Lint explores new Newford territory with each book he writes and the wonderful passages of Hispanic lore (which are particularly beautifully written) give this book a rich new texture and flavor and make it a terrific addition to the Newford opus.

Talk about Forests of the Heart

Charles de Lint operates best in that twilight world where our reality and faerie intersect. However those beings from across the border (from the myth time as he calls it in Forests of the Heart) are not the fey creatures of popular fairy tales. They exhibit all too human emotions; greed and lust and petty minded violence. Somehow that makes them all the more believable.
In Ireland they are called the Gentry, ancient spirits of the land, and they are amoral and very dangerous. When the Irish emigrated to the new world, some of the Gentry went with them. But America already had spirits of its own, the Manitou, and the Gentry had nowhere to call their own any more.
Bettina is a part Indian, part Mexican girl who has moved to Canada. She lives in the artist colony of Kellygnow on the outskirts of Newford. She sees the Gentry as dark men, squatting in the snow, smoking cigarettes and waiting and watching. Something in their attitude reminds her the wolves she knew in her childhood. She calls them los lobos. Those few others in Newford possessed of the ability to see them call them the hard men. They congregate in folk clubs where Celtic music is played. Always they huddle together, drinking canned Guinness and smoking their endless cigarettes. Sometimes they pick fights for no good reason. Hunter, the proprietor of a music store, meets Ellie Jones, a sculptor. The hard men beat him up and warn him off her. Although she doesn't know it yet, Ellie is under their protection for they have a use for her.
Ellie is invited to Kellygnow where she is given a commission - she is to cast a metal mask, a replica of an old, broken Celtic mask. The hope is that with the new mask, a powerful Celtic earth spirit can be reincarnated Perhaps then the hard men will finally gain a proper place for themselves.
But the plans go awry and Bettina, Ellie, Hunter and their friends are joined together with the manitou in a hard and dangerous fight that plays itself out in the cold, wintery streets of Newford and in the myth time, the spirit lands that surround the town.
Normally I have little patience with this kind of thing, particularly when it involves terribly trendy things like Celtic culture and myth. All too often the thing turns into a new age hodgepodge of touchy-feely syrup. However that never happens with de Lint. There's always a hard edge, always a cold reality at the heart of even the deepest myths and he never loses sight of the relationships between myth, superstition, magic and the mundane need to eat breakfast and go to the toilet. Perhaps that's why I keep coming back to his books and why I devour them so avidly. He seldom disappoints and Forests of the Heart is one of his very, very best.

Charles de Lint best writer brings your soul back to earth while sending your spirit to the stars

When I hear that an author as good as De Lint has a new book come out, I get a little pessimistic. How can he possible write something as good as his previous books? But he has done it again. This marvelous story of shapeshifters of the southwest, manitous of the north, and Celtic genii loci is truly wonderful. Read this book! And, Mr. de Lint, was it serendipidous, or did you know about wise older women and spiders in some of the Plains Tribes? That is fairly esoteric, I think (I got it from my granny). At any rate, it makes me respect the way the author tosses together all the different lores to come up with such engaging stories.
Thank you!

I read this book many years ago, lent it out to someone and never got it back. I had to buy it again because I remember loving it so much. Charles de Lint is a wonderful author. This is definitely a great book to add to your collection.

Charles de Lint creates engaging characters that are multidimensional, and realistic. He incorporates myths, legends, folk tales and even urban legends into pure magic for his reader's enjoyment. He truly did pioneer his own niche in the science fiction/fantasy world - - "Urban Fantasy".

As for Forests of the Heart, it is classic de Lint storytelling. The storyline and characters are engaging. I found myself four chapters into the book in a few hours time. Towards the end I slowed way down, savoring each page and wishing the story didn't have to end.

De Lint never disappoints ... To say I LOVE his stories is an understatement of epic porportions.
The onion girl, forests of the hearts...so many and all so amazing...his mind fascinates and intrigues me to no end

Once again, Mr. DeLint did not disappoint. I always enjoy revisiting "Newford" and feel sad as I near the end of the book. The characters are well drawn and the story compelling!
This book started out slow for me but it definitely captured my imagination, mixing southwest mysticism with Celtic mysticism. I liked it and would recommend it for book clubs wanting something a bit different to discuss
