When this book came out in 2002 it was at the forefront of the wave of YA urban fantasy (mythic realism) that would sweep the publishing industry for the next few years, and even 18 years later (how it that even possible?!) it still holds up. Black has continued to write in the genre with her Folk of the Air series, but Tithe was the book that started it all and I’m sure I’m not the only one who read it back in 2002 and continues to come back to it with fond nostalgia. Taking an ages old faerie tradition, the Tithe that binds Faerie courts every seven years, Black explores traditional fey mythology but throws it into the modern age with leading character Kaye - a mortal girl with no end of issues, the least of which may be that she’s actually a changeling. Kaye has been able to see the fey for years, but with many moves to bigger cities she has lost touch with her otherworldly childhood companions. At least, until a bad turn of luck forces her mother to move them back to New Jersey, and Kaye is thrown back into her old haunts. Kaye’s story is one that so many of us magically-inclined teenagers dreamt of - running into a faerie knight, being thrown into danger, but managing to fight our way out (and fall in love at the same time) - but Black treats her story with more darkness and realism than is often expected. For me, this darkness rang a lot more true than some of the more light depictions of interactions with the fey, as it forces us to remember that they are not of the mortal world and don’t play by the same rules as we do. Of course, they have their own rules, which Kaye uses her street smarts (with no small dose of sheer dumb luck) to take advantage of, as she navigates her way through the conflict between the Seelie and Unseelie Courts (and the wild fey). Kaye’s story is engrossing throughout, and has many hidden messages about dealing with the modern aspects of Faerie, so it is no wonder that Black has earned herself a solid place on the modern fantasy pantheon.

So, currently I am playing a DnD game that is focused on changelings/The Gentry. I also picked this book up for the first time years ago, as a kid, thinking it was an entirely different book than it was. That was perhaps the main reason I didn't finish reading it back then. I confused the author for the character and thought it was an Artemis Fowl book spinoff or something similar to that, and when I was wrong I stopped reading.

I wish I hadn't. Holly Black is just amazing. The details are killer, and the setting is perfect, and the Fae are as beautiful and cruel as one would expect them to be. And Kaye, the main character, is great too. As impatient and demanding as any teenager, she discovers a world beyond hers and...doesn't panic like most would, or succumb to the traditional Fae pleasures like humans might (for Reasons). Kaye is special and I love her.
I can't wait to finish the rest of the series. ( )

Details are inconsistent, characters are not believable. Gave up at 50%. ( )

And pleasant is the faerie land
But an eerie tale to tell,
Ay at the end of seven years
We pay a tithe to Hell;
I am sae fair and fu o flesh,
I'm feard it be mysel.
— YOUNG TAM LIN
And malt does note than Milton can
To justify God's Ways to man.

— A. E. HOUSEMAN,
"Terence, This is Stupid Stuff"
Coercive as coma, frail as bloom
innuendoes of your inverse dawn
suffuse the self;
our every corpuscle becomes an elf.

— MINA LOY, "Moreover, the Moon,"
The Lost Lunar Baedeker
The stones were sharp,
The wind came at my back;
Walking along the highway,
Mincing like a cat.
— THEODORE ROETHKE, "Praise to the End!"
A cigarette is the perfect type of perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?"
— OSCAR WILDE, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Prologue: Kaye took another drag on her cigarette and dropped it into her mother's beer bottle.
Ch. 1: Kaye spun down the worn, gray planks of the boardwalk. The air was heavy and stank of drying mussels and the crust of salt on the jetties.
