The Time Will Come #19

The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company where we can spotlight books that we've had for ages and really want to read but never get round to, as newer books get read first.

I bought The Replacement when it first came out back in January and I was really excited to read it back then. Since then other books keep jumping the queue, and it has since got put back to the back of the shelf. I really like the look of this book about faeries and a changeling child, but I have so many books now, I have no idea when I will get a chance to read it.

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, Mackie comes from a world of tunnels and black, murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattoed princess. He is a replacement - left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago when it was stolen away by the fey. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood and consecrated ground, Mackie is slowly dying in the human world. Mackie would give anything just to be normal, to live quietly amongst humans, practice his bass guitar and spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tate's baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem, where he must face down the dark creatures and find his rightful place - in our world, or theirs.


  1. I have this one too and haven't read it for exactly the same reason as you. Next year I really am going to concentrate on reading books off my shelves!

  2. I've been seeing this book around for months now but I never actually read the blurb until just now. I'm not a huge fan of faerie books but this one actually sounds really good. I'll be looking out for your review :)

  3. Sounds interesting! Adding it to my TBR pile!

  4. Ohh this is one l really need to read! I think my library has this so definitely need to get it out one day.

  5. oh wow... I need to pick this up!
