The Folk of the Air Series

One of my favorite YA Fantasy-Romance series with her cunning female protagonist, dark and cruel circumstances and that fine line between hate and love.

The Folk of The Air - Audio Review

This series is a trilogy—reviewed below—with two additional novellas.


Black has a unique way of combining cruelty, violence and the macabre and make it sound beautiful. The story is so character-focused that you get to really know them and see how their pasts have shaped them. Their emotional evolution and rare moments of introspection are such a show of vulnerability and strength. Every piece of the puzzle is a delight to discover.

“We have lived in our armor for so long… And now I am not sure if either of us knows how to remove it. […] One piece at a time.”
