Rue Silver's life is not what it appears to be. Her mother is a faerie, and has been taken back to the faerie realm. As Rue goes to bring her back, she must travel deep into an inhuman world. At the same time, the faerie realm is venturing into our world, too, and taking its toll on those Rue loves.

When her grandfather's plans threaten Rue's city, she realizes that she's the only one who can stop him. But is Rue a human—or a faerie? Where does she fit? How does she know the difference between love and enchantment? Holly Black's masterful storytelling creates a mysterious, darkly beautiful world, matched by the amazing images of artist Ted Naifeh in this astonishing graphic novel series.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Good Neighbors

"Black does a wonderful job of weaving an alien faerie world through Rue's urban landscape, and Naifeh's art, rich with shadows, is expressive and angular and pulls the reader into the story."—Booklist

"Searing and exceptionally well-written." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"[Black] skillfully blends the mystical elements with a murder mystery, family drama, and a bit of ever-popular teen angst. Black also does not shy away from the darker aspects of faerie legend, which gives the story a nicely unsettling aspect at all times."—

"Ted's knack for misfit characters with a dose of humor is a perfect fit with Holly's vision of the faerie world. And I don't throw words like 'perfect' around lightly."—
