A companion novel to Tithe, from bestselling author Holly Black!
When seventeen-year-old Valerie runs away to New York City, she's trying to escape a life that has utterly betrayed her. Sporting a new identity, she takes up with a gang of squatters who live in the city's labyrinthine subway system.
But there's something eerily beguiling about Val's new friends. And when one talks Val into tracking down the lair of a mysterious creature with whom they are all involved, Val finds herself torn between her newfound affection for an honorable monster and her fear of what her new friends are becoming.
Beautiful, eerie, thrilling.
Holly black is my favorite author. Her stories of faeries are so different of those we've grown up with. Innocence is not the case. I love reading her books and I wish she would write more modern faerie tale novels!
The only negative thing I can say about this book is that it ended. I'd give anything for Holly Black to write a sequel. Read it - you won't be disappointed.
Not for "children" as categorized
Older teens only. Drug usage, sex, and foul language permeate this book. Imaginative .... Would have had a broader audience without the D,S, and F.
