    6. This book is about than just a teen romance with a Faery It is a book about equality and rebellion against prejudice disguised as a teen romance with Faery Princess Elora is on a mission to start a rebellion that she hopes will end the war that is tearing Faery apart She must bring back a willing human sacrifice for the Bright Queen to achieve her goal Taylor is a teen boy filled with guilt and bullied at school He is just trying to survive Yes, there is definitely a romance between Taylor and [...]

    7. Three and a half stars.This book left me really torn It wasn t at all what I thought it was going to be, but in spite of that it was still a book that I enjoyed well enough to read in one sitting When I first read the blurb of this story, and saw mention of queens and faeries and courts and revolution, paired with the amazingly beautiful winged cover art, I thought that I would be diving into a fantastical, fairy tale book This is not that book It is set almost exclusively in our mortal world, a [...]

    10. I started reading The Last Changeling expecting nothing than a little entertainment, a light paranormal story and hopefully sweet romance I got much much Contrary to what pretty cover and summary lead me to believe, The Last Changeling is not just another young adult novel.In a lyrical, unusual style, that s fit better for literal fiction than paranormal genre, Chelsea Pitcher weaves her magical web around us Whether it s the descriptions of nature or feelings, style of writing is not somethin [...]

    11. I enjoy a book that sends a good message, don t get me wrong, but when an author pushes character development and plot aside to send a message, it ruins the book This is essentially what happened with this novel 85% of the novel revolves around a group of teenagers one being a changeling faerie who are fighting for the rights of same sex couples to go to prom and of course not be bullied There were lengthy powerful speeches, a bunch of lets rise up against the bullies and administration , and ot [...]

    12. b00kr3vi3ws 2014 09 TheElora, the daughter of the Unseelie Queen, has made a pact with the Seelie Queen to rid of the centuries old feud between the courts and rid of the iron grip that the queen s have on their courts The Seelie Queen demands a sacrifice in exchange for her help And to get that from the mortal world, Elora must become a mortal herself Taylor has troubles of his own He has the weight of his brother s death on his shoulders and family issues to tackle on top of High School and ot [...]

    13. Every time when I decide I m done with YA fiction, and, especially YA combined with fairies, I discover another captivating novel like The Last Changeling Elora must fulfill a task in order to overthrow her mother, the Dark Queen Taylor can help her adjust in the human world as well as provide her with the perfect offering to the Bright Queen.Comfortably paced, The Last Changeling is an enthralling and wonderfully relaxing read The world building is quite adequate for the purposes of this book a [...]

    14. I m quite disappointed with how this book turned out The summary is entertaining than this book was as a whole I couldn t relate to any of the characters, there was no connection whatsoever The book didn t impress me at all The raw need that Elora has to save her people wasn t displayed enough for me Honestly, I couldn t care less for that The switching point of views were a nice break in the story, but if it weren t for the names at the beginning of each chapter I wouldn t have known who was w [...]

    15. ARC received for fair review.This review will be available on my blog Fantasy Findings as of the 27th.I don t know how else to break this to you, so I shall be blunt.The Last Changeling is not a faerie tale.Oh, certainly Elora is a faerie though, I would note that she is not a changeling a glamor is not the same thing For changelings and faery see Cargill s Dreams and Shadows and she does tell a tale of the faery in this story, but only in the last 20% of the book does anything related to the fa [...]

    16. I loved Chelsea Pitcher s debut last year, The S Word, a wonderful contemporary book and when I heard she was writing a fantasy book about the Fae next, I knew that I had to read it too She had written a contemporary that I had loved, and I m not the biggest contemporary fan, so I knew she d write a Fae book that I as a not a big Fae fan would like And I was right I got the ARC for The Last Changeling via NetGalley but with my vacation time I run out of time to read it before release day, so I e [...]

    17. I received this book for free from Flux via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review Genre Young Adult, Paranormal Rating 3.0 My Thoughts The Last Changeling is told in an alternating first person point of view The main characters are Elora, a princess of the Dark Realm of Fairie, and Taylor Alder a boy who has lost his only brother to a freak accident, and is now estranged from his parents As the blurb indicates, Elora co [...]

    18. When I read the description of this book, I assumed that it would be cheesy Sometimes cheesy is alright, when I m in the mood for it at least After reading chapter one I started wishing I wasn t a perfectionist that always has to complete a book after it is started Anyway, I am not a writer and I cannot claim to know all the rules when writing a book, but even I can tell you how awful this writer is First chapter in I was absolutely disturbed by the switching between past tense and present tense [...]

    19. I like reading fantasy Seelie and Unseelie court Fairy Books This one was of a cutsie one It didn t talk a lot about fae except for her story It was just a lot of sexual tension between Elora and Taylor.It didn t have much depth to it I was hoping for somthing .

    20. eARC kindly provided by Flux via NetGalley Review can be found at The Fox s Hideaway.My Review I ve been wanting to read this ever since I heard of it Pretty cover, faeries, secrets, a main character going undercover in the real world Sounded awesome And The Last Changeling was a good book, though it left me feeling underwhelmed.I loved that this was told in dual POVs It was nice to have both of the main character s thoughts and feelings It was also really easy to tell them apart, and I so appre [...]

    21. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review The Last Changeling is exactly what a good urban fantasy should be a seamless merging of magic and everyday issues.The fantasy elements were absolutely mesmerizing and the tone of the writing was haunting Something about the story and the writing felt timeless and classic, like a Grimm fairy tale or folklore of seductive fairies and dancing in the moonlight And it was just as dark and alluring The final battl [...]

    22. The worst I thought would happen to The Last Changeling is an exact replica of The Iron Fey, only a much darker version.Thankfully, that isn t the case.In actuality, The Last Changeling is a talking book Chelsea Pitcher s latest work certainly didn t sprout a mouth and start speaking to me Although it would be really cool to have a talking book Morning, Last Changeling Please summarize what I read three weeks ago Thank you Should that actually happen, I would probably use it a lot For the books [...]

    23. Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyE LAST CHANGELING by Chelsea Pitcher is Ordinary People meets Maleficent and if that sounds like a strange combination, that s because it is Almost all of the information given in the blurb on the back of the book is actually kept from the reader for than two hundred pages, and Elora s motives for attending a human high school are extremely vague Instead of a faerie war, we get Taylor s still fresh grief over losing his younger brother and the torment [...]

    24. French Une couverture magnifique, un r sum accrocheur Au final, une norme d ception, comme si j avais vu un super g teau et qu au final, il n est pas bon Je vais tre franc ce livre ne m a pas plu Je pensais adorer, vraiment, parce que a parle de fa s cet univers est super et le r sum m avait plu Au final, le roman s av re d evant Rien n est d velopp mais alors rien Dans le r sum , on voque la mort du fr re de Taylor On en parle quelques pages et puis c est bon C est tellement rapide qu on ne le [...]

    25. The Last Changeling is the first book in the new Faerie Revolutions series and I love the fact that it is so much than a YA fantasy romance novel At its heart, it is a story about equality and standing up for what is right It is about fighting prejuice and making the hard choices in order to remain true to what you believe is right.That being said, it is also not a book that really hits you over the head with those messages They may be the driving force behind the story, but they don t overwhel [...]

    26. 3.5 Stars The Last Changeling is a fantasy story about good versus evil Elora aka Lora is a young faerie princess on an important mission in the human world It was a nice surprise for me that the story began right away with Lora on her mission instead of having too many confusing details Lora meets Taylor, a human boy, and right away the two characters form a bond and the story is written in both of their point of views I was impressed with the authors writing for Lora s POV Lora spoke in a rega [...]

    27. Original Link to the review at my blog Le Grande Codex here Elora and Taylor were clearly the focus to the story With a much mature feel and insta love as well as, at the time gradually developing romance The Last Changeling tells the story of a burgeoning revolution taking place at the Unseelie Court led by the Princess Elora who has decided to take matters into her hands and wants equality for both the Seelie and Unseelie courts.But the Seelie Queen wants something in return, if she is to hel [...]

    28. This book is very, very enigmatic I would say that it s written differently among other fairy books that I ve read It s a breath of fresh air This would really make you think because there are blank spaces in the story You d really want to know what happened and what will happen The characters in this book are quite memorable Elora, the dark princess is indeed such a force Reading the book in her POV is such a change of scenery I m not really used to the heroine being this dark, but Elora made i [...]
