Title: 
Stolen Child

At age seven, Henry Day is kidnapped by hobgoblins and replaced by a look-alike. In alternating chapters, each Henry relates the tale of how he adjusts to his new situation. Human Henry learns to run with his hobgoblin pack, who never age; Hobgoblin Henry develops his uncanny talent for mimicry into a music career and settles into an otherwise unremarkable human life. Neither Henry feels entirely comfortable with his existence, and inevitably, their struggles to retrieve their increasingly forgotten pasts put them on paths that intersect decades later.
