I only remember a few bits and pieces, such as:
- Magic returned years ago, and destroyed technological society. But now it's going away again.
- There's a death-figure known as john walker (maybe walker john?)
- One of the main characters, a woman, is an artist (painter)
- Another main character, a man, is some kind of local politico
- There's a bridge between magic and mundane realms
- Something about owls, winter, and the sacrifice of children (I think?)
Vague enough for y'all?
