Amelia's Book Room: Tithe

Hmm, how about some fantasy this week?

Kaye has lived a fairly normal life--was normal as it gets when your mom is in a all-girl-band, which takes you from city to city. People have always thought that the sixteen-year-old was highly imaginative, with her supposedly made-up Faerie friends from her childhood; Spike, Gristle, and Lutie-loo. But she's always believed that they were real.

After moving back to her home town, she proves this fact: she meets them again. They want her to do something for them, which they say will help the world of Faerie. And they reveal that she might not be so different from them after all. But they don't contact her before she meets Roiben, a mysterious and enticing Faerie knight, who turns out to be on the wrong side of things.

This was an interesting, albeit sometimes confusing (for me, anyway) page-turner. I loved the world that author Holly Black created within our own, filled with dark creatures and characters. Tithe does have some mature themes and language content, though, so beware.

I want to mention that our Dekoposh Book Club meeting will be postponed for a few weeks; my Nutcracker performance is coming up pretty soon, so I will be busy with late rehearsals and classes. We're also planning for a date when Melissa Walker, author of our book of the month Violet On The Runway, can be there to chat with us! Happy reading, everyone!
