Welcome to the realm of very scary faeries
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.

    Brilliant!!! One of the greatest books I have ever read in my life! okay perhaps not...but certainly a favourite >_<

    Kaye is a eurasian girl who is flung into a world of faeries...sounds nice right, but these faeries aren't nice. They're really not nice.

    Holy Black manages to combine all the elements of urban modernity that exists in any city and the world of faeries - crushing most of the pure Romanticism that it is often associated with. Nonetheless, the story comes out as believable (as believable as it can be while stating the existence of faeries), or at the very least realistic. With a mix of action, drama, and romance - the dark nature of the story may not be for everyone but it is sure to please any teen reader. 10/10 ^_^
