In the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing - her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk on faerie wine, declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie. Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth - that she is a changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen?

Holly Black spins a seductive tale at once achingly real and chillingly enchanted, set in a dangerous world where pleasure mingles with pain and nothing is exactly as it appears.

    " Best one in the series, honestly! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaila | 2/19/2014

    " Just didn't catch my attention or there was moments that I was reading an would sigh. It was Just okay for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 2/14/2014

    " I don't know weather it's my family background or the fact that a friend from middle school gave it to me, but I love this book. It calls to me greatly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 2/11/2014

    " I absolutely adored this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana Giacomi | 1/18/2014

    " An excellent end ding to this series that takes the lives of three main characters that touch each other in the land of fairy. The stories though separate ties nicely together. The story of Kaye who is tied to both worlds. Is a story of live, deceit and compromise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam | 1/16/2014

    " These books aren't really doing it for me. For a YA book, it was a bit too childish, which was partly the reason why I couldn't get into it. The ideas behind the novel are pretty good though and the characters were likable enough - I just didn't find it mind-blowing or anything. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Immortal Fiction | 1/15/2014

    " more of the same. I REALLY like Roiben so I loved Tithe. But there's not enough of him or his love for Kaye in this one and even less in Valiant. So the whole dynamic that captured me is stuck in Tithe. This is a good read but not memorable for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stryker | 12/6/2013

    " i wish i had been inside of this book because it almost felt like i was in the book while i read it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Writer | 12/3/2013

    " Nearly as good as Tithe, but not quite. Black weaves a fine, engrossing tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 11/25/2013

    " Another great Holly Black, dark, gritty, and powerful. The characters are real enough that some of them are disturbing to me. It plays just this side of too nasty to enjoy. Deft. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian Kern | 10/29/2013

    " Loved it, just like the other two. Perfect ending to a great series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamila | 10/11/2013

    " What an amazing conclusion to the trilogy! Kaye and Roiben are the bomb. Louis and Corny are also amazing. This isn't much of a review. But, I love this book and will re-read it because it is dark, sensual and mesmerizing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Denn | 9/23/2013

    " Dark and provocative. The ending was predictable, but Black knows how to capture her readers. The last book richly illustrates the fearsome and beautifully deadly world of the Fair Folk. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg | 7/3/2013

    " I liked this book. The language wasn't as over the top raunchy as the first book. I liked the relationship between Kaye and Corny. Unlikely allies always please me. Still not one I want to discuss with my son, though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liv | 5/4/2013

    " This book sucked, so much. Can't even believe I read as much as I did of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/8/2012

    " Really more of a 4.5. I loved how everything came together. It was well written, beautiful in all it's rough edges and cracks "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 4/17/2012

    " I fell in love with TITHE and was looking forward to the sequel. Holly Black most certainly did not disappoint. Made a lovely ending to a very lovely trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deanna | 3/20/2012

    " Easy entertaining book again it's a YA book but some language and subject matter I wouldn't approve for the younger YA audience. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 2/10/2012

    " This books is great! Holly Black just never disappoints. I think I like this even better than Tithe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brint Mackey | 2/3/2012

    " Good book! Loved it. Hope she writes more like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Breelan | 11/5/2011

    " I wish she would write more about this world. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Empyrean Opulent | 8/19/2011

    " I could not put it down. It was fast moveing and the plot was good, though I saw the twist comeing pretty early on. I hope she writes another! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melinda | 7/23/2011

    " fav in series. i love kay and roiben. roiben is so hot lol. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 7/22/2011

    " Continues to be my favourite book by putting a dark twist on faerie tales. I've reread this book at least once a year since I bought it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 7/20/2011

    " Loved...didn't like the language but the book was amazing. (There is A LOT of language too.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amelie | 7/14/2011

    " Great book! Definitely wanna read the second part. It's a lot like Wicked Lovely, but not too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jillian | 7/8/2011

    " Love it; I've reread it and the other books of the series more times than I can count. Sounds like typical teen fiction but it's far far better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 7/1/2011

    " I really loved Holly Black's "White Cat" series, so I was looking forward to reading her faerie series as well. This book didn't quite have the polish or the originality that I was hoping for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gina | 6/24/2011

    " a good book but a bit of unnecessary swearing, people don't swear that much. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sasha | 6/23/2011

    " Awful. I read it in high school, and it's amazing that I still remember how much I disliked every character, every concept, and every chapter. "
