Skye's a young witch who sucks at spells and works at a metaphysical store, The Green Fairy. Strange things are happening there at night: black specks of movement out of the corner of her eye, mysterious buzzing noises, unidentified dragonfly-like carcasses in the basement, and a hidden cache of absinthe (aka fairy crack).
Kheelan is a human changeling. Raised with the fairies, he's viewed as an inferior species whose only use is to serve his kidnappers. When he meets Skye, he sees an opportunity to escape. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by feelings for this quirky witch.
As Samhain, the witch's Halloween, draws near Skye must make a bold move to claim her heritage and power, restore order in the fairy realm, and try to win Kheelan's freedom and love. Absinthe, autism and augury meld into a paranormal cauldron where fairies are sly tricksters waiting to trap you in their Realm.
This can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Praise for Changeling:
"I absolutely adored this enchanting tale that blends Fae lore with the fascinating world of witchcraft in a coming-of-age story that will touch your heart with angst, humor, romance,and charm."
"If there was a way to auto-sign-up to receive every one of Herbert's books, it'd be done already. I LOVED her Dark Seas series and was SUPER excited to see what she had in store with this.
"Skye and Kheelan were immediately relatable and endearing in this coming of age story with magic and fairies. Watching Skye come into her own as a witch was charming. I was rooting for her from the onset, and her flaws, especially as a witch, made the story engaging and suspenseful."
