Locus Award for Best First Novel 1988, Mythopoeic Fantasy Award nominee 1988.

Guitarist Eddi McCandry has just dumped her boyfriend and their band when she finds herself running through the Minneapolis night, pursued by a sinister man and a huge, terrifying dog. As she soon discovers, the two creatures are one and the same: a phouka, a faerie being who has chosen Eddi to be the mortal pawn in the age-old war between the Seelie and Unseelie Courts.

Eddi isn't interested – but she doesn't have a choice. For more than her own survival is at stake. To save the city – and the man – that she loves, Eddi must face off against the Dark Queen of the Unseelie Court in the ultimate duel of music and magic.
