Books 60-62: The Good Neighbors, 1/2/3, Graphic Novels

"The Good Neighbors" (Book one, Kin. Book two, Kith. Book three, Kind.)
By Holly Black and Ted Naifeh

(Brought to you from the author who did "the spiderwick chronicles" no less)

You know what I am tired of? I'm tired of books that have pretty tinkerbelle fairies in them, that imagine the Fae to be these wonderful dancing little sprites who do only good and delight humans...

That is not the Fae *I* know... nor the Fae held in ancient legends.

THIS is a book that depicts the Fae races as they always were in the OLD myths... but it is a story set in modern times!

What child doesn't dream of waking up and finding out he or she is REALLY something wonderful and supernatural??

Yeah, sometimes that's not a GOOD thing.

...in this tale, it's a very BAD thing, not because she isn't who she is born to be, but because she IS true to her SELF... not every Fae is wicked, either- they're just... different.

VERY different.

I ADORED this series. I would love to add them to my own small collection of books, and that's saying something. Usually a read or two and I am good- these... I would love to share with friends and family... love to be able to read again, at whim.

Fantastic artwork, Amazing storyline, what isn't there to say about this Triad??

Run out and grab it up, scoop it up and hold it close. It's a rarity!!
