From the Publisher:
Jay Li should be in Chicago, finishing high school and working at his familyÃ?s restaurant. Instead, as a born member of the Yellow Dragon ClanÃ'part human, part dragon, like his grandmotherÃ'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 JayÃ?s heart. He must face a series of dangerous, otherworldlyÃ'and very humanÃ'challenges to become the man, and dragon, he is meant to be. This is Charles de Lint at his best!

Praise

"Rich language, lush descriptions, complex situations and the intricate blending of mythologies and beliefs demonstrate why de Lint is still considered a master of the genre. It rarely gets better than this." - Michael Jones 04/01/2011
