Take a trip into a dark fantasy of Tithe by: Holly Black filled with fairies, ogres and a rebelling blond Asian 16 year old named Kaye. With a wanna-bee rockstar, mom and growing up with fairies being really her only friends most find Kaye a little odd. When Kayes mom's new boyfriend turning homicidal once again they return to Kaye's childhood home her grandmother's. One night Kaye finds herself running through the woods from an encounter with her best friend's boyfriend Kaye stumbling upon a stunningly beautiful knight, Roiben. Soon after Kaye's childhood, fairy friends warn her to never speak to him again. Confused and yearning to talk to her knight Kaye goes on a journey of self-discovery and discovers she very well might not be human. Holly Black's description leaves you wondering if there really are fairies around us everyday. During this exhilarating journey to the underworld of the 'Night court,' this adventure will leave you begging for more.
