Tithe by Holly Black
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.
Faeries, pixies, a black knight and a teenage girl stuck in the mix. What more can you ask for? This book was absolutely awesome. I really enjoyed this book, it was an amazing “Modern Faerie Tale”. The characters were all really great and I especially loved Roiben he was so mysterious and a really loyal friend. The story wasn’t exactly what I expected but I really liked that about it, I hate when books are too predictable. The story was great and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good fairie tale.
This is the first book that I’ve read by Holly Black and I look forward to reading more of her books. I hope to read “Ironside” the sequel to “Tithe” soon. For more information about Holly Black and her other books check out her website.
