In her debut collection, New York Times best-selling author Holly Black returns to the world of Tithe in two darkly exquisite new tales. Then Black takes readers on a tour of a faerie market and introduces a girl poisonous to the touch and another who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match. These stories have been published in anthologies such as 21 Proms, The Faery Reel, and The Restless Dead, and have been reprinted in many “Best of” anthologies. The Poison Eaters is Holly Black’s much-anticipated first collection of stories, and her ability to stare into the void—and to find humanity and humor there—will speak to young adult and adult readers alike.
Holly Black is the author of Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale (an ALA Best Book for Young Adults) and two related novels, Valiant (an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, an ALA Quick Pick for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, CCBC Choices) and Ironside, as well as a new novel, The White Cat. She and Tony DiTerlizzi created the best-selling Spiderwick Chronicles. She is working on a graphic novel series, The Good Neighbors, with artist Ted Naifeh. She and her husband, Theo, live in Massachusetts.
The Short of It:I don’t usually like to review anthologies,mainly because I like the depth in stories but I've ALWAYS loved Holly Blacks writing. This book is *wicked lovely* i really enjoyed the way Holly played with the different roles of characters. I seriously think that all these stories need a book.My faves were "Paper Cuts Scissors," "The Dog King," and "The Coldest Girl in Coldtown."I'm little sad because this is ARC, two stories are missing (The Boy Who Cried Wolf and Untitled [A Modern Faerie Tale Story:])
Holly's the black widow of words, She does an amazing weaving life into her stories,you can't help but get sucked right in.<3 Holly Black
