Jayne Sparks, a potty-mouthed, rebellious seventeen-year-old and her best friend, shy and bookish Tony Green, have a pretty typical high school existence, until several seemingly unrelated incidents converge, causing a cascade of events that change their lives forever. Jayne and Tony, together with a group of runaway teens, are hijacked and sent into a forest, where nothing and no one are as they seem. Who will emerge triumphant? And what will they be when they do?
"Sonofabitch!" "Shhh, Jayne, not so loud," said Tony, Panicked. "What?! Those assholes put us in this forest with humanoid creepers that like to suck the life outta people! You know what that means, Tony? Vampires! And not the hot, Twilight kind either. How am I supposed to remain calm about that?"~Jayne
This book blew my freaking mind! I absolutely and totally, completely loved it! Elle Casey had me up late hours of the night laughing out loud to her fae novel, The Changelings. I can honestly say this is going to be the start of a new favorite series for me. The Changelings was simply brilliant.
Where do I begin with The Changelings by Elle Casey?! I have no freaking clue! First I will admit this book didn’t have much romance, which for me to love this book so much and there not much be romance, is saying something! Although there wasn’t that much romance in book one, you can for sure tell there is going to be some in book two, which I for one cannot wait to read!
The beginning of The Changelings was a little slow, but right when the group gets to their ‘challenge’ everything is all awesome from then till the end! The adventure put into this book was such a treat, the forest that the group was dropped into was so magical, but also terrifying at the same time, with monsters such as werewolves and vampires, moving trees, and friendly annoying gnomes this forest was definitely not your everyday forest! Watching our characters get threw it was so stressful! You never knew when something was going to jump out and possible kill someone, or just be some little tree critter that is super annoying! To say this book had me on the edge of my seat would be an understatement!
My hands down favorite part of this book was our main character Jayne, she was spectacular! At first it took me a little while to warm up to her, she is not your everyday heroine, but I think that’s what makes me totally love her! She was very ‘real’ I want to say. She didn’t try to act fearless all the time, when she was scared she was scared, but when it had anything to do with the group of friends she learned to love, she put on her war face and kicked some serious butt! She was such a riot too, I have NEVER had a book make me laugh so much, and I am not just saying a little chuckle, I mean I was bursting up laughing like a mad woman at 2 in the morning over some of the things Jayne would say! (ya she was THAT funny) All in all Jayne was just the perfect main character, the kind of main character that makes you wish she was someone you knew in real life.
The Changelings by Elle Casey was a hilarious, on the edge of your seat read that will leave everyone that reads it insanely happy with it and dying for book two! This is hands down a new personal favorite of mine, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great story that will make you laugh out loud!
