Author: Holly Black
When seventeen-year-old Valerie runs away to New York City, she’s trying to escape a life that has utterly betrayed her. Sporting a new identity, she takes up with a gang of squatters who live in the city’s labyrinthine subway system.
But there’s something eerily beguiling about Val’s new friends. And when one talks Val into tracking down the lair of a mysterious creature with whom they are all involved, Val finds herself torn between her newfound affection for an honorable monster and her fear of what her new friends are becoming.
So I didn’t like this one as much as the first book, but I still loved it! I liked that the characters aren’t your typical characters. Like you may not really like them, but you still totally do!
Also, can I just say the troll love was freaking awesome! I liked that Holly Black made the character fall for a troll and not a “hot” troll either! Although, I’m sure he’s super adorable because his personality was lovely!
I felt for Valerie a lot, and yes she did some stupid things, yet I still wanted to give her a big hug! This world has sucked me in and I can’t wait to start book three right away!!
