Free (Kindle) Killing With the Edge of the Moon by A. A. Attanasio [fantasy]

Killing With the Edge of the Moon by A. A. Attanasio is free at Kindle US DE today. I haven't read it (yet), but it looks charming!

Quote:
From Publishers Weekly
In this lyrical fairy tale from fantasy veteran Attanasio (The Crow: Hellbound), geeky teen Chester "Chet" Hubert must rescue flame-haired daydreamer Flannery Lake from the Otherworld, when all he really wanted was a date. Flannery's grandmother, Nedra Fell, screws up a Wiccan ritual in an attempt to cheat Death, who decides Flannery will make a welcome substitute. After Flannery is hit by a school bus, she falls into a coma and her soul is lured to the Otherworld by a deceitful "techno-pagan" who promises her love but plans on feeding her to a demonic dragon. Luckily, Nedra convinces the smitten Chet to rescue Flannery in a colorful adventure reminiscent of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth and as magical as the best work of Charles de Lint, Jane Yolen and Holly Black.

Product Description
"Blud-eye-eth" is a fabled woman of Celtic myth." The witch's eyes shone in the dark like tiny silver mirrors. "The name means 'Flower Face," which is the owl's poetic nickname, the bird who steals souls - for Blud-eye-eth was a woman made from magic and flowers and, like the owl, she had no soul of her own."

The speaker is a hickory-faced crone trying to explain to Chet, a shy kid with eyeglasses and pocket protector, why he can't take her granddaughter to the high school dance. For quiet, elfin Flannery is not like other kids. A living Blud-eye-eth, she has caught the attention of the faerie, beautiful evil creatures from a mysterious Otherworld, who seduce their victims with moonlight raves before feeding them to a dragon and hunting souls with a supernatural black dog of prodigious evil.

And they have taken Flannery for one of their own.

And she won't be going to the school dance - not unless Chet rescues her.

This modern, demonic fairy tale weaves together themes of passion and self-discovery into an intricate Celtic knot of myth, moon magic, and teen romance. Thrust together in a dark, erotic Otherworld, Flannery and Chet discover they know each other better than they known their own hearts ... but can they sort things out before the black dog finds them?

And what was that about a dragon?
