Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In interlocking chapters of scintillating prose, Donohue tells the tale of Henry Day and the two people he becomes after being snatched at age seven by changelings…Both readers manage to sound like a full cast without any sound effects, brilliantly illuminating the fantastic, detailed world Donohue has created so that the story will linger in listeners’ minds for a long time afterward.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Here is a book that adults can use to escape the day-to-day and be enveloped by a well-told tale…Andy Paris and Jeff Woodman (no pun, I presume), alternate throughout and create two worlds that are at times separate and at times interconnected. We never know whose voice is performing at any particular time, but they both do a fine job with pacing and diction.” AudioFile
“Donohue has created a haunting picture of two lonely spirits searching for identity in the modern world. He includes just enough fantasy that readers will look a little more closely the next time they are walking through a dark stretch of forest.” Library Journal
“Take that, Bilbo Baggins! Donohue’s sparkling debut especially delights because, by surrounding his fantasy with real-world, humdrum detail, he makes magic believable.” Kirkus Reviews
