Holly Black and Ted Naifeh weave another masterful mix of fantasy and the unexpected. After biding their time, the faeries have taken control of the human world. The fey and mortals might not be such good neighbors after all. Rue's world is fragmenting. The fey have taken over her city, and now the humans must share. Her grandfather is gone. Her faerie mother is triumphant. Her human father is despondent. And her boyfriend? He would rather be eaten alive by mergirls than be with Rue. Tension between the humans and faeries is growing, and Rue feels pulled in both directions. In some ways, she feels like her place is in the human world-with her friends, her father, and the humans who want to protect themselves. But then there's her fey half-with her beautiful, dangerous mother, the faeries, and her kinship with the natural world. Can Rue fix the rift between the fey and the humans? Or does she have the courage to continue her grandfather's interrupted plan?

Finishing up the The Good Neighbors trilogy, Kind makes it all the more clear that our kindly neighborhood fairies are not so good or kind. Now that Rue's city is trapped in the fairy world, things have not calmed down -- her boyfriend is still being eaten alive by water sprites, her father is on the crazy train, and groups of humans and fairies are at war with one another. While this entire series is very short and could have done with some expansion of plot and characterization, it's still quite good and an enjoyable tale of the fairy world.
The final in the graphic novel fae trilogy illustrated by the wonderful Ted Naifeh. The story wraps up nicely with the main character finding resolution that is best for everyone except perhaps herself.
Well, this was an interesting read. Haven't heard of it before except for the authors. The covers are good. Story as well.
