Staff Reviews


Everyone knows that faeries don’t exist. Try telling Kaye that, who has seen them since childhood. Now, a young woman, she is sucked into their intrigue and is trying to keep the casualties to a dull roar. Gritty, dark full of surprises, Tithe draws the reader away from the safe, pretty world of Tinkerbell and company and into a realm where the faeries are the true stuff of nightmares.

— From Krys

Description


Welcome to the realm of very scary faeries
Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother's rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms -- a struggle that could very well mean her death.
