From two accomplished veterans comes a dark urban fantasy about a girl seeking the truth about her past—and her future. Rue, a typical goth teen, discovers that she is able to see the faerie realm, something that humans cannot do. As she struggles to piece together whether she is descending into madness, her father is arrested for allegedly murdering a student. Yearning to figure out who she is and where the future may take her, she finds herself torn between the faerie realm and the mortal world. Dark, black-and-white shadowy art creates a pleasantly eerie mood. Naifeh's fantastically rendered faeries range from a stunningly beautiful elfin goddess to devilish horned creatures. With a healthy smattering of angst, romance and faerie lore, fans of the genre should enjoy this volume. Providing enough introductory exposition, this should hook its reader, but still leave enough mystery to leave readers clamoring for the next installment.
