First impression: Stunning cover, I've gotta read it.

Mackie Doyle is The Replacement—left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. He has been raised among us. But he is not one of us. Now, he must face the dark creatures of the slag heaps from which he came and find his rightful place—in our world or theirs.

“I wanted it in the way you sometimes want to jump into very cold water, even though you know it won't feel good. I wanted to go numb. To see what it felt like to be someone else.” - Mackie Doyle

The Replacement was a book I have been dying to read. The cover is just absolutely stunning, and the premise offers so much suspense that you can't help but want to read it and learn about the town of Gentry.

The Replacement definitely doesn't give away much for the first half of the book. But it doesn't lack in content, it gives you just enough to learn and bond with the characters but keeps the mystery of the town under wraps until you can't take it anymore. I was literally getting jittery and antsy, waiting to learn what the mystery is behind the town. I must say that the author delivered that beautifully, the secret was slowly revealed until the very last pages of the book.

Mackie Doyle, there was something about him that I just adored, and found totally swoon-worthy. Brenna Yovanoff crafted a great character in him. The entire character cast, including the secondary ones were extraordinary. Roswell and Tate were both strong characters that stayed firm in what they believed in. They loved with their whole hearts. The Morrigan, Luther, Carolina...everyone. The book would have been incomplete if just one character was missing. Everyone offered something great to the novel.

The Replacement is a book that you must experience for yourself. A enthralling, dark ride that I simply devoured. A perfect read to curl up to in the dark, or under the covers on Halloween night.
Last impression: A stunning cover to match the stunning storyline.
