The Good Neighbors (3 book bind-up) (Paperback)
From the amazing imagination of bestselling author Holly Black and acclaimed illustrator Ted Naifeh, a mysterious and wonderful faerie saga, for the first time in one volume.
Rue Silver's mother has disappeared... and her father has been arrested, suspected of killing her. But it's not as straightforward as that. Because Rue is a faerie, like her mother was. And her father didn't kill her mother -- instead, he broke a promise to Rue's faerie king grandfather, which caused Rue's mother to be flung back to the faerie world. Now Rue must go to save her -- and defeat a dark faerie that threatens our very mortal world.

Praise for The Good Neighbors:
"Black does a wonderful job of weaving an alien faerie world through Rue's urban landscape, and Naifeh's art, rich with shadows, is expressive and angular and pulls the reader into the story." -- Booklist
"Searing and exceptionally well-written." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"[Black] skillfully blends the mystical elements with a murder mystery, family drama, and a bit of ever-popular teen angst. Black also does not shy away from the darker aspects of faerie legend, which gives the story a nicely unsettling aspect at all times." -- www.BrokenFrontier.com
"Ted's knack for misfit characters with a dose of humor is a perfect fit with Holly's vision of the faerie world. And I don't throw words like 'perfect' around lightly." -- www.The-Trades.com
