"Holly Black née Riggenbach (born November 10, 1971) is an American writer and editor best known for The Spiderwick Chronicles, a series of children's fantasy books she created with writer and illustrator Tony DiTerlizzi, and a trilogy of Young Adult novels officially called the Modern Faerie Tales trilogy. Her 2013 novel Doll Bones was named a Newbery Medal honor book.
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.
I would actually give "tithe" 4 1/2 stars. It's truly is an edgy fantasy/supernatural thriller type story, and Black delivers her 'modern faerie tale' in clean-cut (albeit a little explicit) language. You truly see what she intends you to see, and she's damn good at it. It was intriguing to find myself shivering at certain points, reveling in the deliciousness of her language. One of my favorite aspects of the book was the way that she starts each chapter off with a carefully selected quote that fits perfectly with it's coresponding chapter. It's worth it to read them...really. The only issue I have with this book is the explicitness of the language-hence the deduction of half a star. Black's characters have a nasty habit of swearing all the way through the book. Interestingly enough, all swearing ceases when the characters are involved in the faerie world. (Alright, I lie. Kaye uses some spicy language during a heated escape attempt...but that's it.) Now, this can be interpreted as a good thing-a literary tool. I, however, found myself looking forward to the characters involvment in the faery realm in order to escape the salty language...even if only for a moment. "tithe" is deffinetly a worthwhile book. Some snooping around has shown me that Black IS writing a sequal, which this book deffinetly needs and deserves. It's ending is tantalizing, leaving us craving more. It is heavy and dark, though...so be warned. If you can get past that, you will adore this book.
