Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up–This sequel to Kin (Scholastic, 2008) answers many of the questions that were left hanging in that book. Most importantly, readers will learn what happens to Rue Silver’s plan to rescue her mother from the land of the faeries and about her grandfather’s plot against humanity, which involves transforming human sacrifices into living trees. There are several powerful scenes in which Rue’s friends are literally and figuratively seduced by faeries, with tragic consequences, but the most moving scenes involve Rue’s parents. When Rue tries to free her mother, she is faced with the painful revelation that the woman has no interest in rejoining the human world. And her father is torn between his allegiance to his wife and his emotional connection to his human lover. Readers will need to be familiar with the first book in the series in order to understand what’s going on, and there is a major cliff-hanger that should be resolved in the third volume. Unfortunately, even fans of Kin may have trouble following all of the plot points and keeping the characters straight. While Naifeh’s haunting and textured black-and-white illustrations are captivating, Kith does not live up to the promise of Kin.–Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library
VOYA - Laura Lehner
Once you know things, you can't unknow them. So begins the sequel to Kin (Graphix/Scholastic, 2008/VOYA February 2009), in which Rue Silver discovers that her mother is a faery, making Rue only half-human. In this second volume of the Good Neighbors series, she is still adjusting to the powers and knowledge that she now possesses. Rue is determined to bring her mother back from the faery world to live with her, but when she goes into that realm, she learns that her grandfather is planning to take over the town she lives in and cut it off from the rest of the world, making it a faery haven. She now must not only rescue her mother and a friend who has mysteriously disappeared but also prevent an entire town from being overtaken. She is uncertain whether that is really what she wants. Will the lures of the magical faery world be too strong even for a proven if reluctant heroine? This sequel delves far more into the Faery world than the first volume, making it a very different book. It is less about the teenage relationships and the mysteries that initially engaged readers and more about the underlying supernatural—even bordering on creepy. Black's fans will be more than okay with that. Naifeh's illustrations are dark and shadowy, giving the story the feel of a horror movie. The book ends on a strange note, not so much a cliff-hanger as a last minute twist that leaves the reader wanting more. Reviewer: Laura Lehner
