He was just a weird kid one minute, and a self-assured little adult the next. It was b and c. Extremely clever plot, stunning characters and a fabulous read. Mackie’s earliest memory is of being carried through a window at night and left in a strange house.

This is the epitome of a paranormal story gone wrong. I can’t quite articulate what it is that makes me dislike this book so, and yet, there it is.

I didn’t want to attack the author or book in any way. Seriously loved all the side characters, especially Roswell! I have two moans – neither are about the novel, but both are about brennw book. But Brenna Yovanoff does this mixture of urban fantasy, love story and eerie, eerie, horror fiction so beautifully, so vividly, colorfully, tenderly and poetically I simply had to love it and to savor each description without closing my inner eyes.


But just be aware when you pick it up that it is very edgy. Didn’t matter, I still wanted to read it. I didn’t really see any purpose to her inclusion in the story, although I just loved it when Tate beat her up: I stopped about halfway through because it was just so awful.

Stained glass windows hung in rectangular alcoves along the hall, the pictures lit from behind with oil lamps. Well, I read this book five years ago, and I honestly cannot remember anything about it. I’m reeplacement very much into emo guys. My phone was buzzing on my bedside table, and I rolled over Creagh’s “Nevermore” and D. So I found this one and was pretty i At first I thought this was going to be a middle grade horror, but discovered it is more YA just because there is nrenna small amount of language that is definitely not suitable for younger kiddos!

This has been one of my favorite reads this year, and I have no hesitation in saying that.

The Replacement Book Summary and Study Guide

First off Brenna, nobody talks like this. Mackie, with the help of his loyal friends, sets out to right generations worth of wrongs with… wit? Months ago, someone on Replafement posted this as to read and I went a little wild over this cover.


I don’t even know where to start. And then Mackie was describing Tate’s room “Her walls were done up in communist gray.

The Replacement | Brenna Yovanoff

The scene where Mackie makes a deal with the Morrigan is deliciously creepy. There was definitely a good mix of personalities in this one.

I woke up with a jolt. It would have been great to have see this kid grow into a different person, but when faced with a challenge he always approached his foes with tons of bravado. Mackie Doyle is not one of us.


Too many characters with replacemenh motivations and underdeveloped mythology hurt what could have been a great supernatural story. I thought he was deathly yovanocf to metal in any form. Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. Like Mackie is constantly hardcore avoiding Tate and then in the next chapter they’re are all making up and he’s so in love with her and getting handjobs in the back of a church?

Three stars because the concept was good but the plot fell flat and boring in too many places. It got old very quickly.
