great urban fantasy

Holly Black is a great writer. She's not afraid to delve into darker, grittier topics even for YA novels. Tithe is an entertaining read for fans of supernatural stories. Love the sequel (Ironside) even more, though!


Holly black is a really good writer
her other books are just as mysterious

Intro to the Fae

This was one of the first books I read in high school that introduced fairies to me as "The Fae" with all their weird and interesting mythology. It has just the right amount of disturbing.

Over and over again

I have read this book about six times in the last four years, and the last read was just as good—if not better—than the first. Even after six reads, I was still picking up details I had missed the first time around. The other two books in the series are the same way. The characters are real and beautiful, and I feel as though some of them have become my best friends. I will be reading this book until I die or the pages fall out—whichever is first.
