By Steven R. McEvoy TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 15 Nov. 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have been anticipating this book for more than a year, since I read book one, Kin. Now to be honest, I am not a huge graphic novel reader. I can count on one hand how many I have read in the last decade, but this book I could not wait for and the next year, until book three comes out, is going to seem to last forever.

Graphix is the graphic novel arm of Scholastic press, most famous for Jeff Smith's Bone. This book is the second in a trilogy from Holly Black, one of the authors of the Spiderwick Chronicles. The series called The Good Neighbors began with Kin last fall, and continues this year with Kith. This is an incredible graphic novel. The story that started strong and compelling in book one, becomes even better in this follow-up story. The characters are enticing and draw the readers in, and the artwork is incredible.

This is the continuing story of Rue Silver. 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.

This story has a very dark edge. Rue and her friends are university students, struggling with issues of loyalty, fidelity, lust, and all the other emotions and decisions they need to make. Unfortunately they also all know about the faery world, and once you learn about something you cannot unlearn it.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Mar. 2010
Format: Hardcover
It's bad enough to know that your mom was a faery, and that she faked her own death. But for Rue Silver, this is only one of many problems that crop up in "Kith," the second volume of Holly Black's Good Neighbors trilogy -- there's also the slowly encroaching world of the fae, her ruthless grandfather, and her splintering gang of friends. This graphic novel suffers from a bit of "middle book syndrome," but its horrific undertones keep it interesting.

Rue is understandably worried. Not only is her fey mom alive and somewhere else, but her boyfriend Dale has become strangely distant (and we soon see why), her little gang is splintering, and faery creatures are still appearing on behalf of her granddad Aubrey. Then Birch and Tam bring news of a bigger problem that Aubrey has created -- he's starting to cordon off the city, and intends to cast a spell that will make it unfindable to the human world.

And one night she's drawn into a faery realm by the shadow of her mother, showing her the first glimpse of this strange and addictive world of dancing, magic and eerie heartlessness. But Rue hasn't forgotten her cruel grandfather's scheme, or the terrible things that are happening to her friends -- including one who has been transformed into a tree. And as the time of Aubrey's plan approaches, Rue finds that she may be

If "Kin" was all about Rue discovering her half-fae nature, then "Kith" is all about Rue struggling with the two halves of herself -- the wild dark fey half, and the more rational human half which knows that what her grandfather is doing is horrible.

Format: Hardcover
Rue Silver is half faerie, half human. Her mother died, leaving Rue and her father, Thaddeus, alone. Or did she really? Rue believes her mother is still alive somewhere.

Using her faerie powers, Rue travels into the world controlled by her magical grandfather and discovers her mother is still alive. Although she doesn't want to be tempted by this other world, Rue is entertained by her brief visit there. She knows she must return to keep her friends safe from her grandfather's plot to take over the city.

Relationships between Rue's friends are strained, making them vulnerable prey to the powers of the faeries. Rue realizes her boyfriend, Dale, is definitely under their control, but her attempts to convince him to fight their power over him fail miserably. Even with her ability to control plants, Aubrey, her grandfather, continues his plans to make the city his.

Holly Black, along with illustrator Ted Naifeh, is the creator of THE GOOD NEIGHBORS series. KITH is the second book, following KIN. Fans of Black's fantasy style will appreciate the mystical world inhabited by good and evil faeries. The twists and turns of the story are enhanced as the graphic illustrations bring the characters to life.

KITH is sure to be a hit with graphic novel/manga fans everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice story line but the drawings are a bit hard to follow at points 30 Dec. 2009
By Karissa Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the second book in the Good Neighbors series of graphic novels written by Holly Black and illustrated by Ted Naifeh. It was a good follow-up to the first book, Kin. Last I heard this is going to be a three book series.

In this book Rue goes in search of her fairy mother. When she finds her mother all is not what it seems to be. Rue's friends are becoming more and more endangered as fairy becomes a bigger part of their lives and Rue finds out that her grandfather has plans to pull the city into fairy and make it his own.

The storyline in this graphic novel is good and moves quickly. There are a lot of things happening at once so sometimes it is a little hard to keep track of what is going on. Still it is an interesting storyline and, for the most part, the graphics represent the story well. My only complaint would be that at times it is hard to tell who is who based on the drawings; I wish this was clarified a little bit better.

Overall it was okay. The plot is a bit too broken up for us to get really engaged with any of the characters, but I liked the story. I am eager to read the next book and see how things pan out for our heroine Rue.
