Mackie Doyle is a replacement - a fairy child left in the crib of a human baby 16 years ago, to replace the baby when it was stolen away by the fey. So though he lives in the small town of Gentry, Mackie's real home is the fey world of tunnels and black, murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. Now, because his fey blood gives him fatal allergies to iron, blood and consecrated ground, Mackie is slowly dying in the human world. Mackie would give anything just to be normal, to live quietly amongst humans, practise his bass guitar and spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably back home to the fey underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem, where he must face down the dark creatures, rescue the child, and find his rightful place - in our world, or theirs.

Mackie has spent his whole life trying to blend into the crowds, escaping the spotlight, doing whatever it takes to go unnoticed. But Mackie is a replacement, a changeling, and one look at him will tell you that he is other, that he doesn't belong. But as long as he pretends that he belongs no one will question him.

The problem is, however, Mackie doesn't feel as though he belongs despite the best efforts from his sister and a few close friends. Mackie has nothing to live for in our world, which may be just as well as our world is slowly killing Mackie and if he wants to survive he will have to enter a new and eerie world of music, death, underground domains, ancient rituals and of course magic.

The Replacement is more then just a story of faeries; it is a story of identity, sacrifice and love. The town Mackie grow up in has always dealt with his kind by feigning ignorance and looking the other way when a child was stolen, for deep down they all new that in the end it kept the town going and helped the town prosper. But when one person begins to question, Mackie must finally face what he is and decide just where he truly belongs. A brilliant urban faerie story.
