    1. A hole has opened between the world we know and the Leeside, the Faerie realm, and all sorts of folk are coming through We've got Italian lares, Russian banniks, Chinese ancestor spirits, a phouka, and our hero Tim Desmond has his own banshee. What follows is a light fantasy adventure, with a heavy dose of slapstick, that plays with world mythologies with hilarious results. Very silly and very fun to read.

    2. A novel about what happens when fairies and numerous other ancestral spirits invade New York, and one teenage boy's attempts to bring some order to the situation. Some parts of this book were extremely funny. I couldn't get enough of the boisterous and single-minded ancestor Yang, who was mainly interested in sex and pillaging. But Teleri the banshee really got on my nerves after a while. Actually, several characters did, because they were so long winded. I wanted to reach into the book and shak [...]

    3. Humorous fantasy that gets it right. Timothy Alfred Desmond is a typical teenage boy -- read "screwed up, but not with anything criminal" -- who suddenly finds that the creatures of myth have started to return to the world. Add the fact that he's the new champion of humanity and that he's apparently fated to die soon, and it's clear that high school is about to really go downhill fast.What makes this book work is that Friesner knows her mythical characters, and makes reasonable (and funny!) assu [...]

    4. I'm giving them all 4 stars (the trilogy) even though I have not read them in years and years. All I know is they are fun fun and more fun.

    5. The book has an OK premise, an OK set of characters, and tries really hard to be funny. The mythology in it is fascinating and intensely researched but overall the book falls flat.
