Publisher's Summary

When a young troll named Hawthorn is stolen from Fairyland by the Golden Wind, he becomes a changeling - a human boy - in the strange city of Chicago, a place no less bizarre and magical than Fairyland when seen through trollish eyes. Left with a human family, Hawthorn struggles with his troll nature and his changeling fate. But when he turns 12, he stumbles upon a way back home, to a Fairyland much changed from the one he remembers. Hawthorn finds himself at the center of a changeling revolution - until he comes face to face with a beautiful young Scientiste with a very big, very red assistant.

Very very clever

I'm surprised this book is not a runaway hit like the Harry Potter series. It's smart, The characters are deep and colorful . The setting is fantastic and fertile, the language is entrancing and rich. I can't wait to hear/ read more.

mean fairies

Any additional comments?

ok this book tie the previous and the next book only by the end, so fans of the series might find it a bit boring at first specially after the cliffhanger we left with in the previous book. i'm grateful the author writing is so much less confusing than the previous book, i actually was able to read the whole thing and understand it. and i want to praise the narrator. he does so much better job that the author. i wish she wont narrate her next book. in term of story wise, i feel like it shifted to much darker place than the first book, those fairies are so mean, yes it did have a bit of a darker side all along but considering the age group this book targeted toward to it might be not what they signed up to when they picked up the first book and followed the series. i invested in the series this far, so i will pick up the last book that coming in early 2016.
