5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome trilogy 26 Jan 2011
By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This third and final book in the graphic novel series by Naifeh and Black, ties the story together in an amazing way. With even darker narrative and incredible illustrations this book is awesome.

Graphix is the graphic novel arm of Scholastic press, most famous for Jeff Smith's Bone. This book is the third in a trilogy from Holly Black, one of the authors of the Spiderwick Chronicles. The series called The Good Neighbors began with Kin two years ago and Kith last fall. Now the story continues and concludes this year with Kind. This is an incredible graphic novel. The story that started strong and compelling in book one, becomes even better in Kith, becomes absolutely enthralling in book three. A year might be a long time to wait for a graphic novel of 110 pages but the story and artwork make the wait more than worth it.

This is the concluding story of Rue Silver. Previously we found out that Rue thought she was a typical student - she had good friends, hung out, went to class and broke into abandoned buildings to climb and explore in them. But after finding out that her mother was really of the faery folk, she finds out that her grandfather Aubrey wants to take over the town. He wants to surround the whole area in a spell and separate it from the human world. Rue is torn in her loyalties - her family among the faeries or her friends and all the humans in the town. An epic battle is brewing between man and faery and Rue is stuck right in the middle. But now her Grandfather is dead by his own evil spell to separate the town and hide it from the world. Her mother is ruling the faery world. Her friends have been marked for protection, but the rest of the humans are fair game for the faery's entertainment and diversions. But some of them are fighting back.

But some of them are fighting back.

The Dark edge found in the first two books becomes even more so in this third book. But Rue is also finding an inner strength she never knew she had. She starts to put together the final steps of her Grandfather's plans, and might have a way to help most of the humans get back to our world. But it will require timing, help from her friends and a great personal sacrifice.

It is an awesome book and an amazing trilogy! Well done Black and Naifeh!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, great conclusion. 8 Aug 2013

Holly Black is such a great author; I've read all of her works. I've been eagerly awaiting Kind since the first volume of The Good Neighbors. The ending was bittersweet but still satisfying. This work was rather dark but exciting all the same. I hope that Black will collaborate with Tony Diterlizzi again; I absolutely loved The Spiderwick Chronicles.
3.0 out of 5 stars Black + Naifeh: good combination. 9 Feb 2013
By Robert Beveridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Holly Black, The Good Neighbors: Kind (Graphix, 2011)

Black finishes up her Good Neighbors trilogy of graphic novels, illustrated by Ted Naifeh, with a kind of anticlimactic volume. Note that I don't mean this in a bad way; the whole series has had that kind of off-putting feel about it. It's risky, but since it mirrors the psyche of the series' main character, the half-faerie high school student Rue Silver, it makes perfect sense. In this volume, the war is over, the city has been taken over by faerie, but with a number of humans, including most of Rue's high school friends, trapped inside. There's unrest simmering very close to the surface between the humans and the faeries, and none of the ruling faction seem to care. So when a militant human group aiming to liberate the city comes to the fore, it's up to Rue and her closest friends to avert the apocalypse. Good stuff if you haven't been faerie-d out, given the oversaturation of the market. Worth reading. ***

This was fun and dark. The perfect combination for a Black edition. She never fails, no matter what genre she chooses.
4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars; decent conclusion but ends abruptly 23 Jun 2012
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the third and final book in The Good Neighbors graphic novel series by Holly Black and Ted Naifeh. It was a decent, if abrupt ending to the series. I enjoyed learning how Rue dealt with all of the issues facing her.

The land of fairy has taken over Rue's city. Rue has to decide if she will take her place by her mother's side and rule in Fairy or if she will try to save the city she loves. Rue is not human, so is it her responsibility to try and save humanity?

I enjoyed the story; it was interesting to watch Rue try to reconcile her new identity with her past life. She is torn between helping her human friends and taking her place as heir to the Fairy throne. There is a bit of mystery as she tries to find a way to save the city from Fairy.

Everything is tied up very well, but the pacing is a bit off throughout the book. The story develops well in the first half and then bam! the ending is abrupt and kind of slaps the reader in the face. I was left feeling a bit startled and kind of thinking "wow that was tied up quickly". It seemed like a lot of build up for such a simple and abrupt solution.

The characters were so-so; there are a lot of them in the story and I never became all that attached to them. The drawing does a good job of distinguishing between characters and showing facial expressions. The story is drawn in black and white and decently done; it conveyed the surroundings well and did a good job of helping the story along. I wouldn't say the illustration is beautiful or awe-inspiring but it is okay.

Overall a decent conclusion to this series. I liked that all the loose ends were tied up, but felt like the story ended very abruptly. I never engaged with the characters very well and felt like the pacing was off. Still if you have read the first two books in the series, I would go ahead and read this one as it provides a satisfying ending. I tentatively recommend this series to those who enjoy urban fantasy stories.
