I consistently hear Holly Black's name mentioned so bought Valiant last week when I saw it at a book shop.
The 'fairy' mention on the cover hooked me.
After reading Melissa Marr's 'Wicked Lovely', I'm intrigued by fairy books, something I wouldn't normally pick up.
And Valiant has hooked me further.
17 year old Val runs away to NYC to escape a double-edged betrayal and ends up living with a gang of squatters in the city's subway.
What happens next is intriguing and gritty.
And who would've thought trolls could be boyfriend material?
I'm looking forward to reading more from Holly Black.
