From the Publisher:
When Kaye decides to reveal to her mother that she is a faery and was put here in place of the human Kaye, a course of action is set into motion to find the human Kaye while fighting off Silarial, the queen of Seelie Court, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Roiben's throne. Reprint.In the realm of Faerie, the time has come for Roiben's coronation. Uneasy in the midst of the malevolent Unseelie Court, pixie Kaye is sure of only one thing -- her love for Roiben. But when Kaye, drunk on faerie wine, declares herself to Roiben, he sends her on a seemingly impossible quest. Now Kaye can't see or speak to Roiben unless she can find the one thing she knows doesn't exist: a faerie who can tell a lie.

Miserable and convinced she belongs nowhere, Kaye decides to tell her mother the truth -- that she is a changeling left in place of the human daughter stolen long ago. Her mother's shock and horror sends Kaye back to the world of Faerie to find her human counterpart and return her to Ironside. But once back in the faerie courts, Kaye finds herself a pawn in the games of Silarial, queen of the Seelie Court. Silarial wants Roiben's throne, and she will use Kaye, and any means necessary, to get it. In this game of wits and weapons, can a pixie outplay a queen?

Holly Black spins a seductive tale at once achingly real and chillingly enchanted, set in a dangerous world where pleasure mingles with pain and nothing is exactly as it appears.

Annotation:
Well-written and fast-paced, Holly Black's third book in the Modern Faery series follows Kaye on a confusing and nearly impossible quest: to find a faery that can lie. Sent away from Roiben's coronation in disgrace, after drunkenly declaring her love and being given this impossible task, Kaye goes to New York City. There, she finds herself caught up in the Seelie Queen Silarial's machinations to bring Roiben down. Drama, fear, and passion are all ingredients in this fiercely told young adult fantasy. TITHE and VALIANT are the first books in the series.

Praise

"As characters struggle to shape their identities, quintessential coming-of-age themes are as skillfully interwoven as in the earlier adventures, as are seductive contradictions: faeries who cannot lie nonetheless find ways to connive and betray, loyalty and love are wielded as weapons, and ethereal beauty often masks cruelty of the ugliest sort. The chilling game of wits culminates in a satisfying conclusion to this dark, edgy fantasy, a must-purchase for Black's many devoted fans." 5/15/2007

"Black's impeccably employed literary quotes at the beginning of each chapter complement this gorgeous fantasy perfectly and may inspire readers to pursue some of the poets and authors referenced...[E]asily one of the most compelling romances in contemporary YA fantasy." 9/01/2007
