Product Synopsis

Mackie Doyle is a replacement - a fairy child left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago, to replace the baby when it was stolen away by the fey. So though he lives in the small town of Gentry, Mackie's real home is the fey world of tunnels and black, murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. Now, because his fey blood gives him fatal allergies to iron, blood and consecrated ground, Mackie is slowly dying in the human world. Mackie would give anything just to be normal, to live quietly amongst humans, practice his bass guitar and spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably back home to the fey underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem, where he must face down the dark creatures, rescue the child, and find his rightful place - in our world, or theirs.

Staff Choice

This novel is a breath of fresh air in the young adult paranormal genre because 1) this story is not romance-led and 2) the main character isn't female with tortured yearnings. The Replacement has a brilliantly realised male lead in Mackie Doyle that embodies the adolescent angst of not fitting in with peers, of not belonging with their family, that their differences make them a freak. Except that for Mackie all those feelings are fact. Yovanoff has written a story that is new and exciting, and created a richly painted 'otherworld' that is as colourful, abstract and esoteric as a music video for a Marilyn Manson/Lady Gaga collaboration. I seriously, seriously enjoyed this novel, and since I am in the same company as Lauren Kate and Maggie Stiefvater in that enjoyment, I think it's pretty safe to say you will too! - Neil
