    I think this was an awful book, but I enjoyed it. The story of the changeling seemed really contrived and cobbled together so weakly. It was full of holes. How could the changeling have no soul and yet so obviously care about the girl? At one point the author even said he had a soul after making the premise that all children born on a certain day had empty soul, ripe for possession by demons. Also it wasn't the kind of changeling I usually associate the word with. I think of that as goblins replacing an infant with one of their own. Demon possession is an entirely other subject. So basically I quibble with the pseudo-science, pseudo-occult aspects of it. Once you ignore that and decide you're going to read it just to see what happens, it plays out like a whodunit. There's a detective from Scotland Yard and a girl who loves the changeling's better self. And a really cool pub which I think he should have done more with. Why were the pictures of the changeling's mother hanging in the pub?So a weak effort, but enjoyable trash. Sequel to The Moonchild and followed by The Offspring, neither of which I'm in any hurry to read.

    The Changeling is predictable in terms of plot (especially the ending) and the lead heroine needed more character development but... it's still really enjoyable if you're a fan of this particular branch of the horror genre, which I am. The Changeling has a great sense of atmosphere and Simon was genuinely endearing as both a protagonist and antagonist. Overall well written and fast paced - love the alternative 'metamorphosis' cover art too. I purchased a dusty copy of The Changeling virtually for free alongside a collection of other horror stories from the 80's at a book sale; if I ever stumble upon the sequel I'll happily give it a read.

    This is part 2 of his first book The Moon Child. I liked the first book better than this one. This is pretty much light horror with some romance thrown in, and some police procedure. Nothing special.

    Novels like this are necessary. They are junk food — all details are extra cheesy.I found this paperback in a thrift store and laughed at the cover and synopsis with the same joy that I felt upon finding Metal Angel (a romance centered around an angel who cuts off his wings to be an 80's rockstar) and The Holmes-Dracula File (no one-sentence synopsis necessary).Anyway, the book was exactly as I thought it would be: enjoyable, with points throughout where I was giggling stupidly.The romance thread is — as expected — extra flimsy. Our heroine, Sally, meets this dude on the street, and the readers are treated to a whole lot of description about how copper-colored and beautiful his hair is. They spend a night together, bone a couple of times and she's in love. They actually seem to share very little time together, even after they bang and she's sure they're in love — because she spends the majority of the two days that follow working at a hamburger joint and visiting crazy cat psychic Cyril.Unfortunately, Sally is pretty underdone, while readers get a hint that she acts kindly toward the stranger in the street because of her dead brother, there's not much developed from her backstory. Additionally, I thought she reacted in a baffling manner sometimes. There was also a mention toward the end that Simon possesses some kind of extra sensory talent that could influence some of her behavior — but again the idea is undeveloped/unexplained.The romance thread felt extra weird to me because Simon was the preserved corpse of a Victorian kid in a sailor costume about 24 hours before they hit the sheets. Yeah yeah, I understand — he's actually kind of geriatric with a birthdate around 1900 and a storyline that picks up in 1985 (a good year) and he physically ages/transforms into the werewolfish creature through killing people — but still...Then there's Albert, the predictably sloppy, overweight, and unmarried cop who is always game for a decent bacon sandwich.He exists in the same arrested development as Simon as an enchanted corpse. I feel like this is an oft-used trope, the slobby, socially-averse cop that inherits someone else's storyline and in the end thins out and maybe slaps a tie on every once in awhile because he's got a thing for the girl. Still, he's the most developed character of the bunch. The family histories and connection between Albert and Simon are presented piecemeal through the story and — while it didn't all connect the way it could have — it was the most interesting part of the book.Aside from the off-putting romantic thread and underdone characters. The premise itself isn't entirely uninteresting. Kid is born on a bad day as an empty vessel; demon takes possession; there's some backstory that includes the skeleton of German investigator found with the silver latched coffin; coffin is disturbed setting off the narrative of this volume. Apparently there's a book before and after — because of course she's knocked up — I haven't read either at the time of this review. However, if I see them in a thrift store, I'll probably pick them up.

    I read the first book in this series 'The Moonchild' a couple of years ago. Fairly predictable, but entertaining. A slightly grisly werewolf tragedy kind of story. Moonchild was slightly better. I understand there is a third book in the series, which is indicated by the end of 'The Changeling'. Probably, won't read it.
