"The Jack of this version ... is Jacky Rowan--a young woman who leads a fairly predictable life until a brush with magic gives her the ability to see into the Faerie world that exists alongside our world.... Soon she becomes a guerrilla in a war of magic as the darker denizens of Faerie... struggle to destroy the brighter creatures of magic. If they succeed, all the city, human and otherworldly alike, will be plunged into nightmare. ...[T]here is a quest to undertake, a treasure to claim, giants to defeat.
