A Modern Fearie Tale

cover art of Tithe by holly blackIn this modern faerie tale the teenage heroine doesn’t mop the floor and sweep the chimney, she takes care of her alcoholic mother and deals with dropping out of school to pay the bills. This is no Disney story with a completely happy ending so be prepared for a bit of gore and some sex.

That being said, I love the gritty reality of Holly Black’s Tithe. It was thoughtful and well written, to the point where I read most of it in one sitting. If you have already read Tithe check out The White Cat.
