The cover is colorful, but it seems to reflect a children's fiction type book and not a YA fantasy. It starts of slow, but the pace picks up at the street party scene and the changeling makes her appearance. The plot gets even more interesting when it seems to me that there's also a "genie" involved in this story. But then that's where the cliffhanger occurs. Darn! It will be interesting to learn what happens to the four thieves (Seelie, Isolde, Raze, and Olani) in this novel.
