9781416901198: Valiant: A Modern Faerie Tale (Modern Faerie Tale)

When seventeen-year-old Valerie Russell runs away to New York City, she’s trying to escape a life that has utterly betrayed her. Sporting a new identity, she takes up with a gang of squatters who live in the city’s labyrinthine subway system.
But there’s something eerily beguiling about Val’s new friends. Impulsive Lolli talks of monsters in the subway tunnels they call home and shoots up a shimmery amber-colored powder that makes the shadows around her dance. Severe Luis claims he can make deals with creatures that no one else can see. And then there’s Luis’s brother, timid and sensitive Dave, who makes the mistake of letting Val tag along as he makes a delivery to a woman who turns out to have goat hooves instead of feet.
When a bewildered Val allows Lolli to talk her into tracking down the hidden lair of the creature for whom Luis and Dave have been dealing, Val finds herself bound into service by a troll named Ravus. He is as hideous as he is honorable. And as Val grows to know him, she finds herself torn between her affection for an honorable monster and her fear of what her new friends are becoming.

About the Author:

Holly Black was born in a decrepit Victorian house much like the one the Grace kids move into. Her mother gave her books on ghosts and fairies and Holly spent a happy childhood cooking up imaginary witches brew with her younger sister. Black is an avid collector of rare folklore volumes, spooky dolls, and crazy hats. She resides in Long Branch, New Jersey.

From AudioFile:

Runaway Valerie is homeless in New York City and squatting on an abandoned subway platform. Her living situation is utterly safe compared to her entanglements in the mysterious murders of faeries and her involvement in a burgeoning romance with a fey healer who considers himself a monster. Renee Raudman gives a laudable performance on many counts. Her vocal variations go beyond differentiating gender to make aural distinctions between supernatural and human characters. Raudman's huskiness enhances the darkness and mystery that permeate the story. Her even pacing, clarity, and character distinctions are crucial to help listeners navigate the complexity of the murders and fey politics.
