The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue

The Stolen ChildDonohue’s The Stolen Child is by far the best fiction title I’ve read this year. I’ve long been fascinated with changeling lore, and this is the first book I’ve read that speaks from the perspective of the changeling. In fact, the narrative follows both the original human child-turned-changeling and the changeling-turned-human as their parallel lives separate and they grow into their new lives. Often dark and at times heartbreaking, The Stolen Child had me captivated from the first page. But fear not, there are many moments of levity and whimsy, and readers will be intrigued by the science of the change and the histories of the changelings.
