This book was fabulous! It has a different main character than Tithe but her story links with the first book! I will say there should be a trigger warning to this book as a form of drug is used and abused by not only the main character but by some of her friends! I have this book 5 stars because it has mystery, suspense and a great love story that reminded me of beauty and the beast!

After finishing Tithe, which was just ok, I decided to continue on with Valiant. I must say it was MUCH better.

This book dives straight into the plot without the confusing introduction that was in Tithe. The first chapter gives you just the right amount of background to understand Val's state of mind in the rest of the book. It catches your interest right from the beginning, but it does not keep going and going and going to drag the plot down.

As the book continues on, you are introduced to a group of troubled teens who are well developed characters that, regardless of who you are, you can relate to on some level. This book was much more believable and enjoyable because of this.

The faeries in this book are similar to the teens: troubled yet well developed. You find yourself drawn to the faeries and also relating to them. I also found myself falling for a troll in this novel and rooting for the creature.

All in all, because of the much better and less co fusing writing and the well developed characters, I will continue to finish the rest of this series. I am hoping Ironside continues the getting better trend.

I didn't really go into this book with many, if any, expectations because I already knew that it was going to have little to do with the first book Tithe. In this one the author didn't jump into the story right away. There was some lead up to the events and a little more explanation this time which I liked. Her descriptions of how it is to live on the streets of NY seemed so well put that I actually began to feel cold and dirty reading it. I, again, had a hard time picturing these characters so I just made up my own description and images of them (didn't mess with the story any, I just like to picture the characters clearly in my head).

If I were Val in this book I would have done a lot of punching in the face starting with dear old mom. I like the kind of bad a** Val was...a complete human willing to do anything for the "creature" she loved.

There's not much, good or bad, that I can say about this book...It just registers right there in the middle. Nice ending, it didn't leave me feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and it didn't have me throwing it aside ready to move on. Altogether, not a bad story and I'm glad I read it.

We picked up the first book in the series at a thrift store recently and enjoyed it, so we ordered this book. I believe that one was her first novel. This one showed definite improvement in her writing skills, over the first. This novel was fast-paced, her vision of Faerie is interesting, as are the characters, so I didn't mind that it was written for a YA audience. We will order the third book soon.

Starting off, I will say I was disappointed this did not pick up where Tithe left off. We got all new characters within the same world and Kaye and Roiben weren't reintroduced until late in the book, and dismissed just as quickly. That said, I did love this new story in that world.

While I did enjoy some of the new characters, most of the misfits were just scummy. I didn't understand why they would choose to live in an abandoned train station if taking Never made it so easy to get what they wanted; why not get an apartment? But at the base, they were just "drug" addicts, so I can almost understand the need for the fix and not really caring, but still.

The plot was new and enjoyable; the characters deliver packages (Never) to faeries that are outcast. Never helps these Faeries live in the city keep from getting too sick from the iron they are exposed to. When humans take Never though, they are able to, for a time, develop faerie powers such as illusions and glamour. It made for a vey interesting read, and also a sad, hard lesson in drug abuse.

The end was satsifying and I could hardly wait to start reading Ironside after that!

While this is written in the same universe as Tithe, it is not about the same characters. It is also a very different kind of story than Tithe, so be warned. In Tithe, the protagonist shoplifted, smoked, and was a high school dropout, and all of these (relatively) minor flaws are kind of overshadowed by the fact that (spoiler) she isn't human. In Valiant, the protagonist does a lot of things that people consider morally reprehensible (crazy drugs, casual sex, etc), and is ultimately held more accountable for her behaviors because she is human. I would like to point out that by the end she overcomes all this, which is more than what we can say for Kaye. Valiant is darker and seedier, but I still think it made for an amazing read.

Also, and this is just my feelings on this, I think a lot of people don't like Valiant as much as Tithe just because the male lead doesn't fit in as well with their idea of Prince Charming. Not saying that there aren't legitimate reasons why people don't like it, but for some people, I'm pretty sure this is the root of their problem.

I really enjoyed this book. So far I have been very happy with Holly Blacks books. It was neat that all three where held in the same world as the first book, but was yet an all new story. I'd like to see more books from this world, though as far as I know there is only 3 from the 'A Modern Fairy Tale" series. If you enjoy dark fairies, the idea of how they may really be, believable world creation, and fun story lines, then you'll enjoy these sets of books.
