Who says sequels cant live up to the original? 5 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This thrilling sequel to JACK THE GIANT KILLER has all the usual thrill of de Lint, with an extra twang. Jackie's back and so is Kate in this extremely riveting blend of folklore and modern duldrums. Old friends are revisited and we meet some new ones along the way but remember, this is ottowa, and anything can happen. Even with the wild hunt off her tail and the unsealy kingdom almost in ruins, it will take more than all jackie's got to defeat her new foe, as she explores the depth of friendship and love in this explosive story. If you liked JACK THE GIANT KILLER, you'll love DRINK DOWN THE MOON.

Faerie Fun 25 Jan 2002
By M. VanKempen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wanted this to be "The continuing adventures of Jacky and Kate" but its not. I was a little disapointed that they were not the main characters, I'm just happy that they were in the book.
Again we are in Ottowa, only this time we meet Johnny Faw, who has just lost his Grandfather. His Grandfather has one last request: that Johnny was to play a certain song on his fiddle. That leads him to meet Jenna, a faerie. That is just the beginnig. The Faerie people need Johnny as much as they hate the idea.
I really liked the faerie background, as this is totally new. There is alot of lore and history that gets told, and that is kinda hard to follow. Again there is a lot of LOTR feelings. This story has almost the same themes as Jack the Gaint Killer: War, murder, best friends and destainy. There was alot of detail that didn't need to be there but I enjoyed the story nonetheless. De Lints writing is really entertaining which is why the story again is so easy to get into.

There is a whole bunch of new characters, which is great. Trolls, shapechangers and more. The best new character was the bad guy. He was really evil and it didn't matter if he was fighting guy or girl. He had a good reason to try and win. Some of the old characters I thought would play apart was Eilian, Bhruic, Kerevan and the Laird. Eilian was mentioned, at the most, three times. The Laird was out of town, again.

There needs to be a third book that fills in the gaps that haven't been answered, and this book helped very little. I recommend this book, a whole other point of view, and another side of Kinrowan that we get to know and enjoy!

Jacky is in trouble again.

Now, if you were going to have a new character come along to help out, why not Johnny? Yep, that is the one. Apparently the moon is chockful of the magic stuff that the faerie types need to get along, and a bad guy decides to basically nick it all for himself.

Enter your heroic musician type (of a sort), to try and help out and put things right.

Not as good as the other book.
