Tithe is about Kaye, who, alongside her mother, goes to live with her grandmother. While returning to her childhood home she finds herself reconnecting with old friends- human and faerie alike. And then a chance encounter with a knight from the Unseelie Court sends her down a path to meet her destiny.
This book took me by complete surprise. I can't find a bad thing to say about it. It's dark and beautiful with fully fleshed out characters and a story that deviates from early expectations. I was blown away by the writing (when I was younger I read Spiderwick Chronicles with my Dad and a few years ago gave White Cat a try) even though it wasn't anything new.
I was going through some books I was debating on getting rid of when I saw this one. I actually have all three (and you will see me read them soon) and was a bit shocked I had forgotten about them. For the longest time I've wanted to read them and when I did buy them I put them in one of my shelves I never look at. Anyways, I sat down and read the prologue. That's when I knew I couldn't put this one down. And it was a feast of wonder.
There's little more to say about this book. It's everything I needed and didn't know I needed. I read it in less than a day, even though it was a busy day. It had my full attention and it deserves yours, too.
