In the realm of very scary faeries, no one is safe.
Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces the sixteen-year-old back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms—a struggle that could very well mean her death.
Holly Black's enormously powerful voice weaves teen angst, riveting romance, and capriciously diabolical faerie folk into an enthralling, engaging, altogether original reading experience.
An edgy 16-year-old discovers that she is a changeling and that her one-time "imaginary" faerie playmates want her to pretend to be a human so they can earn their freedom for seven years. In a starred review, PW called this book "a gripping read." Ages 12-up.
Tithe - slow start, but picked up and flew
It took a bit to get started, but once you started getting to know the characters, you were deeply involved and needed to know more
Such an amazing story; I am hooked. I had only read “The Darkest Part of the Forest”by Holly Black prior to this, and it was one of my favourite reads. It was an adventure I desperately wish had a sequel. Can’t wait to start the next one in this trilogy.
Best book series I’ve ever read in my entire life. It’s dark and real and beautiful and melancholy and it just makes me feel a way, you know? It’s so hard to describe but I love EVERYTHING about it.
