The Oddmire, Book One: Changeling
By William Ritter

Magic is fading from the Wild Wood. To renew it, goblins must perform an ancient ritual involving the rarest of their kind—a newborn changeling. But when the night arrives to trade a human baby for a goblin one, something goes terribly wrong. After laying the changeling in a human infant’s crib, the goblin Kull is briefly distracted. By the time he turns back, the changeling has already perfectly mimicked the human child. Too perfectly: Kull cannot tell them apart, so he leaves both babies behind.

Tinn and Cole are raised as human twins, neither knowing what secrets may be buried deep inside one of them. When they are thirteen years old, a mysterious message arrives, calling the brothers to be heroes and protectors of magic. The boys must leave their sleepy town and risk their lives in the Wild Wood, journeying through the Deep Dark to reach the goblin horde and uncover who they truly are.

“Suspenseful and sometimes droll, ‘Changeling’ is a promising start to a planned series.” —The Wall Street Journal

“Set in a magical world filled with incredible creatures from folklore, this fast-paced fantasy will keep readers turning the pages as they follow the twins through the dark and mysterious woods. A captivating series opener.” —Booklist, starred review

“Wonderfully written, with powerful messages of love and the importance of family, Changeling is a bold start to a promising series.” —Shelf Awareness, starred review

"A story of wonderment and brothers, magic and family. It is reminiscent of Kelly Barnhill, with it's ode to the otherness and a bit of darkness with humor and heart liberally sprinkled throughout. Just enough scary to send a bit of a shiver, but lots of light to make it through to the end." —Liesl Freudenstein, Boulder Book Store
