T5W – Cooking in Eggshells

Hi all! Today’s topic was a “choose your own adventure” type deal where we got to discuss books featuring a paranormal creature of our choosing.

So today’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is…Books about Changelings!

(For those not in the know, apparently the Fae occasionally like to steal children (and adults) and replace them with doppelgangers; these look-a-likes are called Changelings. The lore behind these creatures is fascinating, though the reality was often much more brutal.) 

The Replacement (Brenna Yovanoff)

Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement, left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world. Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate’s baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs. — I read this one AGES ago, so I don’t remember a lot about it except that I thought it was awesome.
