My daughter loved both 'Changeling' books, giving them 4*, but then she is vampire fan-atic, having all the seasons of Buffy, Angel, The Dresden Files & Blood Ties and a collection of vampire movies/books. She found these changeling books 'an nice easy light read, that you could easily put down and pick up again. It's not a compulsive must read the next bit, but the books are interesting none the less'. This second book doesn't have any hint of a finish, the finale being largely setting up of the storyline for the next book in the series 'Changeling: Blood Wolf' - whose title does actually hint at the plot. Needless to say my daughter has bought and read this third book, which was published here in February 2010. So this Changeling series is recommended for any teenager who rather likes the vampire/werewolf genre.
It does have good parts, but just that, parts.
Anyone who has read the first book may be dissapointed with this one.
Locating the castle is only the beginning of Trey's problems though when he, Alex and Tom are joined by Charles, an arrogant young magician who once dated Alexa. While they work on their plans, a mole within Lucien's organisation is reporting everything they do back to Caliban who is trying to revive the Draugr (undead creatures with superhuman strength and a grudge against humans) as part of his bid for world domination. With time running out, Trey and his friends launch a desperate assault on Caliban's stronghold, encountering battle angels, demons and evil magic that could destroy them all.
This fast-paced sequel picks up a few weeks after the events in CHANGELING. Trey is more comfortable with his powers but remains uncomfortably attracted to Alexa (who tantalisingly may have feelings for him). Charles is an interesting addition to the mix - arrogant but powerful he and Trey form a grudging friendship, which Feasey instils with humorous banter. Tom is given more of a role here and his love of guns and gruff charm is a nice counterpoint to the dark themes in the material.
The book favours action over character development, which is a shame as it means that Alexa's feelings about having to face the mother who abandoned her as a baby are brushed aside. However, Trey is beginning to become more rounded and there's some nice scenes where he unwillingly agrees to go shooting with Tom.Read more ›
Trey encompasses every lad's dream as the last werewolf, recruited to an underground firm battling evil. It's a conventional enough plot, with Trey heading a rescue mission, but there's lots of brilliantly described action to prevent it from becoming a cliche. There is a great mix of emotion (moments of sadness and elation both in good supply) and excitement to keep the pace fast enough to hold the most fickle teenager's attention.
Dark Moon is a great book by a very promising writer of young fiction - Feasey is definitely one to watch, and the Changeling series certainly deserves its place amongst great modern fantasy writing for young people.
