Pick your poison: Vampires, devils, werewolves, faeries, or . . . ? Find them all here in Holly Black's amazing first collection.
In her debut collection, New York Times best-selling author Holly Black returns to the world of Tithe in two darkly exquisite new tales. Then Black takes readers on a tour of a faerie market and introduces a girl poisonous to the touch and another who challenges the devil to a competitive eating match. Some of these stories have been published in anthologies such as 21 Proms, The Faery Reel, and The Restless Dead , and many have been reprinted in many "Best of " anthologies.
The Poison Eaters is Holly Black's much-anticipated first collection, and her ability to stare into the void--and to find humanity and humor there--will speak to young adult and adult readers alike.
