A fantasy novel by Emma Bull and one of the pioneering works of UrbanFantasy, ''War for the Oaks'' is the story of Eddi [=McCandry=], a Minneapolis rock singer who's just quit her band and broken up with her boyfriend. There's also the matter of TheFairFolk moving in -- quite literally -- with her, and an impending war between the Seelie and Unseelie Courts into which she's just been drafted.
