By Holly Black



Kaye is 16, and when she and her wanna-be rock star Mom go back to New Jersey, she reconnects with her childhood friend Janet, and Janet's gay brother, Corny.

Soon Kaye encounters Roiben, a mysterious black Knight, and discovers that she's in the middle of an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms.

The teens are drawn into the war, with Kaye as the pawn - and the stakes are life and death.

LOVE this book. My review: http://www.insearchofgiants.com/2008/10/tithe-by-holly-black.html. Ironside is equally deserving of being on your list here, Lee.

It's great you have Tithe here, I love to see recs for fantasy with GLBT characters. What about including the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, which has a gay teen as one of its central characters (and he doesn't die and has a happy romance, to boot.)
