The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue

5/10 - I hate to say it, but this one became a chore to read. When you only have 25 pages left, and you still have to drag yourself back to it, that's not a good sign. My biggest gripe was the whole premise on which the story was based. Unfortunate children are stolen by hobgoblins or changelings who then turn the child into a changeling and take their place in the human world. Then the cycle repeats itself once it becomes the stolen child's turn to reenter the human world and take another child's place. Why? What's the point? It's just a useless cycle. The whole thing was just a bizarre drawn out tennis match.
