If I had to come up with one word for this book, it would be disjointed. I felt disjointed from the characters, disjointed from the plot, and the characters and plot felt disjointed from each other.

I just didn't understand it. It wasn't that the book was complicated, it just didn't work. I did not connect to Mackie, the main character, on any level, and I couldn't comprehend his actions. Same with the other characters. I just didn't know what was up with them. Their feelings were up and down, t

While reading this I felt like I was in a dark funk, and that's because Mackie Doyle has been in this kind of funk for almost his whole life. He has never felt like he belongs because he's just a replacement. A replacement that has to keep that a secret at all cost, but that can't last for long can it? His secret is jeoparized when Tate's little sister is thought to be dead, but Tate doesn't believe that and presses Mackie to give her some answers. How can he do that though, when he doesn't even ...more

One of the weirdest books I have ever read!

I'm not sure what to say in this review, I did enjoy the book however I don't quite know how I finished it! It was very odd, it started off with Mackie being a reasonably normal kid with weird allergies to a servant thing to a little dead child called The Morrigan. I truly do not know how to describe this book, at some parts it was great and some it was just so weird!
However I loved the relationship between Mackie and his sister Emma, it was very swee

*Firstly, thank-you to Simon & Schuster Australia who sent me a copy of this to read and review*

The Replacement was an easy enough book to read, although it was nothing exceptional. It was quick and easy with a decent, although not overly unique, plot. There were things about it I really enjoyed and things that I didn’t.

I was really excited when I started reading The Replacement, because it seemed to have a pretty original storyline, with the Changelings and all that, and Maggie Stiefvater's blurb was really making me curious and eager to start. I'm glad to say it didn't disappoint.

Mackie Doyle is, indeed, one of the sweetest, strongest, most magnetic heroes I've met, as others put it, and I couldn't agree more. His relationship with Emma was also very good and warm and sweet and one of my favorite things.
Really good book! Mackie Doyle is so sweet, he is a very good protagonist. The whole concept is intriguing, I think teens will like this book very much.
