About Once Upon a Changeling
Things started going wrong for Russ Knight last year.
He found out his girlfriend was cheating on him when she gave birth at the junior prom and left the baby to die in a trashcan. Russ didn’t even know she was pregnant. Hell, he thought they were saving themselves for each other.
Now, locked in her padded cell, his girlfriend is screaming that she was just trying to get the faeries to give her baby back. Russ doesn’t buy it. But to shut her up, Russ tries a trick the old legends say will work, and the baby starts swearing and begging to be taken back to Faerie. He’s got to accept the truth: the kid he’s grudgingly raising is a faerie changeling.
The faeries are going to sacrifice the real baby at the Equinox if Russ can’t get them to switch again. But the only person who can get the baby back is a biological parent, and Russ’ girlfriend certainly can’t help. To save an innocent life, Russ will face ancient faeries with razor-like teeth, wrestle snarling skeleton dogs, and, maybe worst of all, track down every guy his girlfriend was sleeping with last year in the hopes of finding the baby’s real father.
And apparently, the father could be half his senior class.
Reviews for Once Upon a Changeling
I enjoy vj chambers books. They are usually dark and the romance is not usually perfect this book is one of those. I very much enjoyed this book.
Best book I have read in a long time. The suspense was awesome. I could not put this book down until I was able to find out who the father was and if the baby would get returned. Great book.
I liked it. I felt bad for Russ, Cindi was not a very nice girl. I have no sympathy for her at all. Marcos didn't turn out to be such a good friend either. I really liked Puck, she was awesome. The premise of the story was fresh and enjoyed the way it ended. Great job.
This book was a surprise; I am a huge fan of dark faerie stories, and from the description I was expecting something macabre. But Chambers manages to take a taboo subject and make it engaging and even funny in places. I liked the main character right away.
