Product Description

Product Description

First published in 1989 and taking place in downtown Toronto, one of the earliest of the modern urban fantasies, GATE OF DARKNESS, CIRCLE OF LIGHT is the story of a fight against encroaching darkness by a developmentally handicapped young woman, a street musician with no idea of his potential, a bag-lady who's tired of picking up the pieces, and an adept of the light. Mixing actual Toronto ghost-stories with traditional Faire, a police procedural, and a cat, GATE OF DARKNESS, CIRCLE OF LIGHT opened a gate at street level to the urban fantasy that followed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful book! 3 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This, for me, was one of the books that I read and it changed my life. From the inside jokes on the cover to the scene where the Beatles save the world, this is a great book and does not deserve to be out of print!! It is another one of those books that tries to make you think -- about why certain things are considered wrong, and what the potential of "slackers" or "mentally disabled" people really is. If you run across this in a bookstore, buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars BUY BUY BUY!! 20 Jun 1997
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sadly, although this(IMHO)is one of, if not the best, of Ms. Huff's books, it didn't sell well enough to interest publishers in a sequel. I urge anyone who enjoys fantasy to read the first page, then see if you can put it down!

The storyline follows a rag-tag band of modern heroes(a sort-of bard, a "simple" girl, a tough cynical social worker and an Adept of the Light) as they struggle to stop the imminent invasion of Darkness that plans to break through the barriers protecting our world on Midsummer's Night. With the clock ticking, they race to defeat the evil adept who strikes at each with their deepest fears come to life...the ending makes you cry(at least, it made ME cry)but also gives you lift for your spirits and hope for the human race yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended! 8 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
GATE OF DARKNESS, CIRCLE OF LIGHT is one of my favorite fantasy novels of all time! This is the first book I read by Tanya Huff, and it sold me on this fabulous author for life. The characters leap right off the page and you'll never forget them. In reference to the comments in the March 29, 1999, review, I believe it should be noted that GATE OF DARKNESS, CIRCLE OF LIGHT was published in 1989, and the first of Ms. Lackey's BEDLAMS BARD books, KNIGHT OF GHOSTS AND SHADOWS, was not published until 1990. Any similarities present should certainly not affect readers' comfort in reading GATE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but hauntingly familiar 29 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Huff's work is wonderful, especially Summon the Keeper--I hope that there will be a sequel because it is not finished. This new book was great--I love urban fantasy, but for some reason, it really reminded me too much of Mercedes Lackey's Bedlam's Bard. I had this supreme sense of deja-vu. I am not accusing the author of any kind of plagerism (excuse my spelling) but it was kind of like Jordan's the Wheel of Time series compared to Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. Too many aspects rang familiar for me to read it comfortably. But other than that, the book is well worth reading
