Changelings & Other Stories by Leah Cypess

Changelings & Other Stories 
by Leah Cypess
January 2012 

Book Jacket Summary
Laura is telling the truth about being from Faerie. But not about anything else.

Darri has been waiting years for her brother’s return… because only she can protect the rest of her family from him.

Sarli is one of a long line of abandoned girls chosen to be a human sacrifice. But she’s planning for her turn to go a little differently.

Seven previously published fantasy stories by Leah Cypess, author of Mistwood & Nightspell.

My Thoughts
Creepy and thought provoking Cypess makes worlds where the magical is not that far removed from our daily lives. Changelings are sent from fairy as punishment or to help their race survive. There are companies that can send you on a quest but it might be more real than originally anticipated. It is a scary world full of stories that are not quite explained from our past and Cypress makes the most of it. This is a short anthology and I enjoyed having a quick read for an afternoon. I am looking forward to reading more of Cypress, especially if she can keep up the creepy atmosphere in her novels. I would recommend this one to those looking for an atmospheric collection and only have a limited time.
