Review by Kelly Bergevin

Twin sisters Iselia and Isolde are as different as day and night, and the differences run deep. Iselia is a changeling, a fae baby switched at birth with a human look-alike. Humans don’t take nicely to changelings, and Seelie has always had a hard time fitting in, understanding the emotions of those around her, and keeping her unpredictable magic under control. When a heist goes wrong, the twins will have to team up with some unexpected allies to unravel a mystery that could impact both the human and fae worlds. Housman has managed to write a love letter to autistic teenagers and adults, without ever having used the word. Unseelie will make neurodivergent readers feel seen and understood, while expertly crafting a window for neurotypical readers. An excellent edition to every library. Expected publication of the sequel, Unending, is set for 2025.
