It's always a pleasure to receive a new Charles de Lint, and this is no exception. One of his young adult tales, it deals with Josh, an adolescent who lives for his band and 'boarding'. His home life is poor, although he loves his mother, the men in her life often cause him grief. The latest boyfriend, though, gets a shock when he attacks him, for Josh changes into a mountain lion. Josh is one of a new breed of children known as 'wildlings' and as he embarks on this terrifying new life he mst find a way to control his power whilst evading the sinister research corporation who wants to analyse him, the FBI and the Elders who have brought this power into the world. As usual, Charles de Lint spins a great story, bringing the best out of his adolescent characters and not shirking the issues of sex, gang culture, race and politics. I really enjoyed it and have started reading all his other works in order! Recommended!

I loved this book. Charles de Lint writes of the extraordinary so that,like Stephen King,it seems perfectly acceptable.
SPOILERS--In this book,a small town suddenly find their young people are finding they can release their inner animal.
Of course,then you get the inevitable bad guys(the men in black) who seem to want them.
Is it for security(a huge gorilla running around,for instance,would cause a security prob)or is it someone with an ulterior motive.
Three high school kids,friends since forever,find themselves mixed up in it when one of the changes and discovers his wildling nature.I hope he writes morelike this and turns it into a series.
Great book.

This tale is aimed at young adults, but is worth reading as an older one too! If you've never read any of de Lint's books, this is an interesting and enjoyable one, but do look out for his earlier works. I love his style, he often blends "Old World" magic and legend with "New World" ones.
