Teetering at the top of Mt TBR....
Jay Li should be in Chicago, finishing high school and working at his family's restaurant. Instead, as a born member of the Yellow Dragon Clan—part human, part dragon, like his grandmother—he is on a quest even he does not understand. His journey takes him to Santo del Vado Viejo in the Arizona desert, a town overrun by gangs, haunted by members of other animal clans, perfumed by delicious food, and set to the beat of Malo Malo, a barrio rock band whose female lead guitarist captures Jay's heart. He must face a series of dangerous, otherworldly—and very human—challenges to become the man, and dragon, he is meant to be. This is Charles de Lint at his best!
This is another ALA arc I picked up. I've only ever read one other thing by de Lint (The Blue Girl), but I really liked it and have always meant to read more -- I know his fans are very devoted, and that bears looking into.
But I've never really done dragons. I don't know why, it's just never been my thing. But I am curious to see what de Lint does with it, and really should get to this sooner rather than later, I think.
Have any of you read this, or are you a big fan of de Lint?
