Lauren Tranter is exhausted and needs rest after giving birth to her twins. She is tired especially with taking care of the needs of the twins, Morgan and Riley, by herself.  Everyone thinks Lauren just needs some rest. However, she knows what she saw that night in her hospital room. A woman covered in rags who tried taking her babies and replacing it with her own.

When the police arrive to investigate the incident, they are unable any clues that someone was there. Her husband and her doctors believe Lauren is imaging things and is stressed. Lauren knows what she says and she is afraid to leave her children alone.

As a month passes by, Lauren takes the babies for a walk in the park. She falls asleep and wakes up to find the babies are gone from her side. A bystander finds the children but, Lauren feels that there is something different about them. They might look like her Riley and Morgan to everyone else but, she knows that they are not hers. Lauren is willing to do anything to bring back her babies even if it means risking her life.

The creepy book was an interesting read. I am not a mother myself but, I can only imagine the level of stress mothers deal with after giving birth. Then to add in the drama of believing that your child(ren) are missing is enough to make anyone go crazy. The suspenseful novel leads readers into a maze of discoveries into deciding whether or not Lauren hallucinating or did Faeries steal her children. Overall, a deliciously ghoulish read that's perfect for a rainy day.
