I feel sort of ambivalent about this. Perhaps it's because I read Melissa Marr's take on faerie before Holly Black's and they feel pretty similar. Perhaps it's also because I hate tropes like this - anti-drug message thinly veiled in some other issue (see: BtVS's evil Willow plot). But, Val is a cool character and I enjoyed following her story. I did not enjoy many of the secondary characters and I wish more had been done with Ravus - and all the faeries really. I do not feel particularly moved to read others in this series.
