Tithe by Holly Black










Book 1

Novel Summation:

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 Kaye 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.

My Thoughts:

This was a good book. I normally enjoy books about faeries and this one didn’t disappoint. Some cons were that there wasn’t too much action and there wasn’t much romance between Roiben and Kaye. For some reason I found that the book didn’t flow very well. It might be that things were excepted to easily or that relationships developed randomly but still everything that did happen was entertaining. Kaye was enjoyable and what sets her apart from other character is Faerie stories is that she was already aware of the world of Fae. I didn’t like Corny because I thought he was incredibly creepy and he seemed to just force himself into everything. I recommend this book to those that enjoy books about faeries.

Future Book:

The next book in the series is Ironside.

  1. Have you read Valiant? Although I liked Tithe, I thought Valiant was a lot better (I think I liked the main character more). It’s more of the urban-faerie fantasy genre.

    • I haven’t read Valiant yet I was thinking of skipping it so I can get back to the characters in Tithe but then I heard they sort of appear in Valiant so I’ll most likely read it
