I loved the Spiderwick Chronicles, and this title intrigued me (as I shelved other gns in the YA section), so I took it home and liked the story a lot. Holly Black puts her wonderful imagination to use in this modern faerie tale about a half-faerie teen only just finding out about her origins. I immediately put the next 2 volumes on hold, even though the artwork within these graphic novels doesn't appeal to me. The story keeps me going and I'm going to read Tithe as soon as I pick it up from the library today. (less)

Good story so far, but the art isn't doing it for me.

As graphic novels go, this one is well-paced with multiple stories, nicely dark/gothic art, and no repetitive overstatements (which bad graphic novels tend to fall into).

Very good and dark faerie story. A little bit of mystery and intrigue with beautiful art by Ted Naifeh

nice quick read. Like all good "faerie" stories, dark, spooky, and not at all straightforward.
