The Mystery of Grace - Charles de Lint This is the first de Lint I've read. I liked the story and the world of the Alverson Arms but I would have liked it more if the "bad guy" had been badder and maybe the love story a little more important to the storyline. I did like Grace's character but I found that I wanted to know more about the other lost souls around the Alverson Arms. I think I will try other of de Lint's books, maybe something a little more "edgy".
