The Dreaming Place, (c) 1990 by Charles de Lint
Walking with Spirits
through murals of mists
I visit my totem
in the Dreaming Place.
-Jane Leverick, from "Dream Time"
A young woman locked in rage yet seeking magic, Ash is drawn into a wonderous Otherworld of totems and dryads, living tarots and mystic charms.
But while Ash walks among the spirits, her cousin Nina is being stalked by an Otherworld demon - a manitou who can force her mind and soul into the bodies of beasts.
Now, Ash must somehow reach inside herself, past her anger, to tap the full power of her magic - and save Nina before she becomes the manitou's weapon, turning the faerie realm into an arctic wasteland.
