There are three Londons: Grey London, bereft of magic and ruled by a mad king; Red London, where life and magic are revered; and White London, cutthroat and ruled by murderers. Once there was Black London--but no one speaks of that city now. Officially, Kell is an interworld ambassador. Unofficially, he's a smuggler, carrying trinkets between worlds, until he's tricked into carrying something he shouldn't. Now on the run, Kell must stay alive long enough to discover the truth of the object he carries...and whether Black London may still exist.

Holly Black's rich and imaginative storytelling weaves a dark, modern fairytale in which those who live in an uneasy peace with the faery folk must be careful of the bargains they strike, and a horned boy asleep in a glass casket in the woods is the keeper of secrets that will change everything for Hazel and Ben--siblings who have been given a faery blessing, or is it curse?

Humor is probably the best way to deal with waking up five years after you've died. That's what Travis Coates does, in a brand new body, with the same old head, still sixteen when everyone he's every known and loved is five years older. Sadness of course plays in a bit too, but I'd be getting aHEAD of the story and giving too much away, and I can't do Whaley's storytelling justice anyways.
