Blurb; On Christmas Eve in 1988, seven-year-old Alfie Marsden vanished in the Wentshire Forest Pass, when a burst tyre forced his father, Sorrel, to stop the car. Leaving the car to summon the emergency services, Sorrel returned to find his son gone. No trace of the child, nor his remains, have ever been found. Alfie Marsden was declared officially dead in 1995.
Elusive online journalist, Scott King, whose ‘Six Stories’ podcasts have become an internet sensation, investigates the disappearance, interviewing six witnesses, including Sorrel, his son and his ex-partner, to try to find out what really happened that fateful night. He takes a journey through the trees of the Wentshire Forest – a place synonymous with strange sightings, and tales of hidden folk who dwell there. He talks to a company that tried and failed to build a development in the forest, and a psychic who claims to know where Alfie is…
Intensely dark, deeply chilling and searingly thought provoking, Changeling is an up-to-the-minute, startling thriller, taking you to places you will never, ever forget.
My Review; This will make you shiver and the hairs on your arms stand up. Bloody brilliant. I read this over the Christmas break and it managed to slither its way into my top twenty reads of 2018. This book should come with a warning… Once you open it, you won’t want to close it. It’s all you will think about. A highly anticipated read you all need to read.
I absolutely love this series so far. Its outstanding. Unique. Different. I do however still need to read the first book where it all started. Changeling is book three in the series. Hydra is book two. Six Stories is book one. I also love the cover on this one, an eye catcher, simple and pretty.
This book just blew me away especially towards the end its a jaw dropper of a story. One that makes you go… WAIT A MINUTE! Brilliantly written, easy to read and fast paced. Can easily be devoured in one sitting. I am already looking forward to the next one and going back to Six Stories ASAP.
I would highly recommend you check this series and book out, all read brilliantly as standalones too. Taking a look back into some unsolved mysterys and crimes. I’ve found a new favourite author! A must read and buy series. A well deserved five stars.
Thank you to Matt and Orenda for letting me read this one. Very grateful.
