    The world of Faerie never disappeared: it merely went into hiding, continuing to exist parallel to our own. Secrecy is the key to Faerie’s survival—but no secret can be kept forever, and when the fae and mortal worlds collide, changelings are born. Half-human, half-fae, outsiders from birth, these second-class children of Faerie spend their lives fighting for the respect of their immortal relations.

    Story

    The narrator read the heroine rather mediocrely, without much variation, but her voices for all of the other characters were painful to listen to. Julie's voice was stilted and strange, almost like a bad impersonation of Shatner and the cheerleading coach from Glee on drugs. Her Japanese accent was horrible and so was her Irish...at least I think it was attempting to be Irish. Tybalt was ridiculous. All her character voices seemed so halting and slow, it didn't really make sense to me why she made that choice. The story itself didn't seem all that magical. All the realms of the Fae at your disposal, and they're out in San Francisco, without any history of how they all got there, or why. And she's a detective? Seems a bit unnecessary in the fairy world. Toby didn't make me care about her, maybe because she doesn't care about anything. She's just not likeable. She didn't really seem to try to get her family back, not even any attempted explanations. I'm only about half-way through, but I'm going to hang in there till the end and possibly amend this review.
