Eyes Like Leaves (2009)
Subterranean Press

In the Green Isles, the summer magic is waning. Snake ships pillage the coastal towns and the evil Icelord encases the verdant lands in a permanent frost. A mysterious old wizard prepares to mount one last defense of the Isles, hurrying to instruct his inexperienced apprentice in the art of shape-changing. In a desperate race to awaken the Summerlord, the newfound mage gathers a few remaining allies, including a seemingly-ordinary young woman and her protective adoptive family. Mercilessly pursued by the Icelord's army of stormkin, they flee north to the seat of the Summerlord's power.

But the revelation of a family betrayal leads to new treachery—and time is running short for the Summerborn.

Reviews
Publishers Weekly
World Fantasy Award–winner de Lint dusts off an enchanting epic fantasy written in 1980 but never published. The result is a delightful old-fashioned group quest...his nascent poetic style evokes beautiful imagery.

Booklist
This is classic high fantasy, written and revised by a master, unpublished when first completed some thirty years ago because de Lint decided to focus on contemporary fantasy stories and let it languish. It is a must for de Lint completists and, actually, for all high-fantasy and folkloristic fiction fans.

Library Journal
This traditional fantasy...bears de Lint's characteristically lyrical prose and hypnotic storytelling. Filled with Celtic lore and wonderfully drawn characters, this standalone epic should please the author's many fans and lovers of medieval fantasy.

Fantasy Literature
Eyes Like Leaves is well-paced, and the action scenes flash with energy. Charles de Lint shows signs of the bardic gift in his ability to make scenes come alive...

Editions
Subterranean Press; hardcover, 2009 Tachyon Publications; trade; 2012
