Estranged #2: The Changeling King

By: Ethan M. Aldridge

After years of pretending to be a human, the changeling Edmund Carter has assumed his rightful role as Cinder, king of the World Below. Finally, Cinder is free to be himself. But he has yet to gain full support from everyone at the royal palace.

Meanwhile, Ed is struggling to adjust to life as a human in the World Above. His birth family treats him with a kindness he never knew growing up in the fay court, but Ed misses the sense of purpose that came with being a knight. That feeling quickly fades when a mysterious new threat emerges in the World Below. Life-giving magic is disappearing, and Cinder will need the help of Ed and their sister, Alexis, to figure out why before it’s too late. But nothing can prepare them for the family secret that awaits at the end of their quest.

In Estranged, two young people learned they were switched at birth: the “Childe” grew up as the lone human in the underground fae world, while Edmund Carter, a fae, grew up with a human family above ground. Since Edmund, now known as King Cinder, took the throne in the World Below, magic has slowly started to fade from the kingdom. The young ki In Estranged, two young people learned they were switched at birth: the “Childe” grew up as the lone human in the underground fae world, while Edmund Carter, a fae, grew up with a human family above ground. Since Edmund, now known as King Cinder, took the throne in the World Below, magic has slowly started to fade from the kingdom. The young king, still new to his surroundings and finding his place, thinks often of his family above ground, where the Childe, now called Ed, is adjusting to life with the Carters. When the family’s first reunion in a year is interrupted by news of an energy that might restore magic to the kingdom, Cinder reluctantly leaves to fulfill his duties. But not wanting to be separated again from their brother and son, Cinder’s family agrees to follow, despite the danger that may lie ahead. Traveling further into the World Below than ever before, Cinder, Ed, and their family face greater trials with higher odds that leave the fate of both worlds in their hands. This work elevates everything that its predecessor did. Familiar characters have grown exponentially and have more purpose than in the previous volume. A new group of characters add more action to battle scenes, delightful dialogue, and touching moments. The pace flows with greater ease, but readers will need prior knowledge of the series and should pay close attention to follow along. Incredible, intricate watercolors flesh out the setting even further with more fantastic creatures and striking full-page landscapes. A strong sequel; those familiar with the series will not be disappointed and will be anxious for another volume.
