it was ok
Read in July, 2006

This is a novel told in parallel, the story of Henry Day who was stolen by fairies and renamed Aniday, and the story of his changling, who became Henry Day from that day forward. The author, Keith Donohue, follows their lives from that time as they each learn to make their way in their new life, and come to terms with the life that might have been.

It is well-written and oddly compelling. These are no gossamer-winged fairies, but feral and detached. While the story is riveting and the end satisfying, it is not charming; no Disney animated feature in this story. Proceed at your own risk.
