The novel begins in a bar in Philly, where Kaye's alcoholic rock-singer mother's boyfriend tries to kill her. For their own safety, mother and daughter quickly move back to grandma's on the New Jersey shore where Kaye grew up. This ugly turn of events was all rigged by the Faerie world, as it turns out, a world Black describes in deliciously vivid, if rather overblown, detail. Kaye, a drinking, smoking, foul-mouthed high school dropout in the land of mortals, soon finds herself embroiled--as a human sacrifice, no less--in a battle between Faerieland's Seelie and more malevolent Unseelie courts. The beautiful, mysterious knight Roiben, torn between worlds himself, falls in love with Kaye--the brave, clever changeling--against his better judgment. Throughout the electrifying journey to the horrific underworld of this modern faerie fantasy, teen readers will relate to a hard-luck tough girl who feels alienated, discovers her best qualities in the worst of circumstances, and finally finds a place between worlds where she can feel at home. (Ages 13 and older) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Mrr. This was recommended to me by a friend, since she said it was like a modern, teenage version of The Moorchild (which I loved). Read morePublished 12 days ago by Swankivy

I really like paranormal romance and hoped I would like this book. It was rather depressing and very much written for a teen audience.Published 3 months ago by GingerH
Fairies are not all good,even the "good" ones. They do not think like humans nor respect human lives. This is not all happy flowers and unicorns. Read morePublished 4 months ago by David G

I didn't care much for this. I didn't find Kaye particularly likable. I'm not sure what age group this is meant for. It know it's described as "gritty". Read morePublished 5 months ago by KindleLove
