Mackie's hometown of Gentry isn't like other towns, but he's not like other kids, either. He's not even supposed to be alive. Mackie is a Replacement, left in place of a human baby. He was supposed to die, like all of the replacements do, but he didn't, though he may not live much longer.
When the baby sister of a friend is taken, Mackie finds himself drawn into the world beneath the city, a place known as Mayhem . . . his place of origin.
Mackie will have to decide where he really belongs and which side of the fight for Gentry he wants to join. His choice will determine his future - if he has one at all.
Yovanoff weaves a deliciously dark tale of love, betrayal, and acceptance no matter who (or what) you are. I couldn't get enough of this book. Mackie, Emma, Tate, and all the other characters, both dark and human, made this book a thrill ride from start to finish. Eerily creepy and intensely enjoyable.
