The author has shown how children think in this story. The end makes me think of changelings from folklore and wonder if the author got the idea for this dark tale. The first idea that came to mind when the eggs found were dragons, so them hatching to be fairies was a twist I wasn't seeing. It's a dark fantasy without being flowerily and raining love-hearts. It makes me feel as if this should really happen, like a tale that'll be told to future generations. When the fairies took someone away. Like old tales in the same taste from the dark ages. Mixing magic with the real world and throwing dark into the mix makes this an enjoyable read.
