In The Myth Hunters by Christopher Golden, lawyer Oliver Bascombe found himself caught up in a civil war that's erupted out of Faerie and into the mortal realm. People are being murdered by a horrifying Sandman, while those few able to cross between worlds are likewise being hunted and killed. Joining Kitsune (a werefox) and Jack Frost, Oliver has tried to discover the reasons behind these murders... making himself a target at the same time.

From official release/information:

Book Description: For centuries they lived amongst us. The frightful and wondrous, the angelic and bloodthirsty. Living in a reality just beyond the Veil, humanity's myths and legends are caught in a struggle for their very survival—against hunters far more powerful than they are.

Into this struggle has stepped a New England lawyer who once wanted to be an actor—a man who both longs for the mortal woman he was to marry and is desperate to rescue the sister who's been taken hostage. Neither hero nor warrior, Oliver Bascombe now finds himself brandishing a magical sword, walking in the company of a woman who sometimes appears as a fox and a man made of pure ice, and dueling with albino giants and winged killers. For in the world of the Borderkind—and the realms that exist beyond it—Oliver is discovering just how vulnerable are humankind's myths, the dire consequences of their extinction, and the reason he was chosen to save them.…
