Creepiest read of the year. This is an eerie, unsettling, and compelling story that raises questions of reality. The incorporation of lore surrounding changelings was well-done, blending reality and fantasy, which provides an element of doubt by highlighting the reasoning behind the convictions and actions of Lauren. The narrative addresses some common concerns of motherhood in a manner that is more engaging than a frank discussion of the topics, including not instantly connecting or loving your children, postpartum depression, and struggling with the demands of a being dependent upon your attention. Though quickly-paced, the story did slow down when the focus periodically shifted to Detective Harper, whose moderately developed story detracted from the intrigue of Lauren’s experiences, and whose presence could have been greatly streamlined
