Holly Black

Holly Black has written many things, but the one I'd like to talk about is "The Folk of the Air" series. Black has a way of making you route for her morally grey characters. Jude, our main character, was essentially kidnapped by the murderer of her parents. She's grown up in the fairy world, but she is a mortal and through out the books she makes choices that increasingly show how skewed her moral compass has become from that experience. Despite that, every decision Jude makes is relatable and understandable. Through Jude, Holly Black makes us understand the justification of the horrifying ways of the fair folk. I highly recommend this series, particularly to those who have loved tales of fairies their whole life.
