Holly Black is a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author, co-creator of The Spiderwick Chronicles and author of YA novels including the widely acclaimed THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN.
A rollocking story of evil faeries and teenage angst in modern day USA. A fairytale more Grimm than Disney. ( THE BOOKBAG)
Black has expertly weaved a story which is totally unique, fascinating and modern, almost startling in its originality and strength of plot. The storyline is inventive and captivating, and I cannot comprehend how much imagination Black must have to craft something like that... a must read for anyone who enjoys fantasy or twists of faery tales. I can guarantee that anyone will be surprised by its originality and strength, and I cannot wait to read more of Black's work. (EllatheBookworm GUARDIAN TEEN BOOKS)
A TALE OF FAIRY FOLK CASTS A SPELL: Holly Black... impressed with THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN, and this latest story is similarly engrossing. The typical young adult themes of racism, outsider status, peer pressure, and truth are addressed with freshness (Alex O?Connell The Times)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Black has crafted characters that are both innocent and naive yet strong and alluring. ( The School Librarian)
