Quotes & Awards

  • “In interlocking chapters of scintillating prose, Donohue tells the tale of Henry Day and the two people he becomes after being snatched at age seven by changelings…Both readers manage to sound like a full cast without any sound effects, brilliantly illuminating the fantastic, detailed world Donohue has created so that the story will linger in listeners’ minds for a long time afterward.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Here is a book that adults can use to escape the day-to-day and be enveloped by a well-told tale…Andy Paris and Jeff Woodman (no pun, I presume), alternate throughout and create two worlds that are at times separate and at times interconnected. We never know whose voice is performing at any particular time, but they both do a fine job with pacing and diction.”

    AudioFile

  • “Donohue has created a haunting picture of two lonely spirits searching for identity in the modern world. He includes just enough fantasy that readers will look a little more closely the next time they are walking through a dark stretch of forest.”

    Library Journal

  • “Take that, Bilbo Baggins! Donohue’s sparkling debut especially delights because, by surrounding his fantasy with real-world, humdrum detail, he makes magic believable.” Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Krystn Fuerst | 2/13/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast read, well written and i hear amazon is making this into a movie? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by J.B. Stanley | 2/10/2014

    " Don't be fooled by the fairytale-like premise of this novel - there is a lot more going on here than the exchange of humans for changelings. In fact, you may question what makes us human at all by the time you're done with this fascinating book. Donohue did an amazing job creating the sympathetic and sometimes pathetic ancient children and showing his readers the importance of not wasting the life we are given. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Libby | 2/9/2014

    " This was a very sad story about two boys whose lives intersect when one, a changeling, takes the place of the other. The "Stolen Child" then joins the tribe of other changelings and slowly loses his memories of his previous life. It was well written, but a little depressing. "

    " I didn't really like it but I will rent the movie. I was so hoping that it would end different than it had. But the fantasy fiction was really interesting. "
