Description:

Betrayal. Assassination. Kidnapping. And that's just the beginning... The most surprising book of The Fey saga, with a twist so powerful the rest of the series hinges on that one moment. The Changeling alters everything from the balance of power to the very nature of power itself. For years, an uneasy truce has settled over Blue Isle. But in a series of betrayals, that truce gets shattered. First with an assassination. And then with the destruction of all hope that the warrior Fey and the people of Blue Isle will ever experience peace. Human, half-human, Fey, it becomes impossible to tell hero from villain, impossible to figure out who wants to heal Blue Isle—and who wants to destroy it. “Whether [Rusch] writes high fantasy, horror, sf, or contemporary fantasy, I’ve always been fascinated by her ability to tell a story with that enviable gift of invisible prose. She’s one of those very few writers whose style takes me right into the story—the words and pages disappear as the characters and their story swallows me whole….Rusch has style.” —Charles de Lint USA Today bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch writes in almost every genre.
