As an Antagonist Book, this is a great supplement.
A. E. Terry
It offers a few types of foils for your characters, including villainous and deranged changelings, ensorcelled mortals, fetches, True Fae, and hobs.
A. McLaughlin
The hobgoblins section is one of the most straightforward in the book, and consists mostly of new creatures.

This is the antagonists book for the Changeling game line. It massively expands on the various antagonist types mentioned in the Changeling corebook. Unlike many antagonist books for the World of Darkness, it does not have an additional section on things that are just weird. The reason for that is the True Fae and the hobgoblins already qualify. The book is divided into three chapters. The first covers Changeling and mortal antagonists, the second covers the True Fae, and the last chapter covers Fetches and hobgoblins. I enjoyed reading this more than the corebook because this book only had to cover one aspect in detail rather than introduce the whole setting in general, and the writing is at least as good as the corebook.

The first section begins with Changelings as antagonists for the characters. It is subdivided into three further groups, the Mad, the militias and bridge-burners, and the privateers and loyalists. Actually, the Changelings in all the groups are pretty much nuts. The Mad are just loners. There is a section on motivations and Storytelling each group, and then several pre-generated antagonists. The groups tend to emphasise and distort various aspects of normal Changeling society. There is a group so obsessed with hiding that merely knowing about it marks one for their assassins. Looked at as a whole, though, they are mostly groups that one has to either join or physically fight. The individual Mad are more diverse. Most of them are fairy-tale monster types, such as the King of Cats, the Evil Hag, and the Glutton (yes, the guy from the corebook), but unlike the group members the text suggests how characters can deal with them without conflict, at least sometimes.

The next section is on mortals.

Essentially a "monster manual" for Changeling: the Lost, Autumn Nightmares resolves a lot of ambiguity that exists in the Changeling rulebook. What kinds of hobgoblins are there? How does the fetch work, exactly? How exactly does the storyteller handle the Gentry? These are examples of some of the questions I had after reading the Changeling rulebook that are answered in Autumn Nightmares. There are examples of changeling antagonists, variations on fetch mechanics/lore, a wide array of hobgoblins, and an entire chapter devoted to the Fair Folk. As always, your imagination is your best tool, but this book offers many ways to get the juices flowing. If you're stumped on how to present any of the material I mentioned above, I highly recommend this book.

My only complaint, and this is a minor one, is that the book is a bit thin at 144 pages. I would have preferred a bit more material. But it is hardcover, which I wasn't expecting.

Format: Hardcover
This is the first Changeling antagonist book. It offers a few types of foils for your characters, including villainous and deranged changelings, ensorcelled mortals, fetches, True Fae, and hobs. In addition to stats, it provides excellent information and ideas for using each of these types of antagonists in your stories. The information on creating fetches and Keepers is especially helpful and inspirational if the core book left you wanting more. Having a better idea of how to deal with hobs adds some detail to your Hedgescapes, too.

Depending on the scope of your Changeling game, I'd also recommend Dancers in the Dusk, which includes "denizens of dream;" antagonists for use in dream scenes and Hedge environments. Autumn Nightmares is an indispensable resource to Changeling storytellers, but I personally refer to Dancers more often when searching for a cool pre-made antagonist. If you and your troupe are enthusiastic about Changeling, do yourself a favor and pick up both books.

This book, the first supplement I picked up for changeling, because I was hoping it would give me a lot of ideas for storytelling chronicles, is chock full of ready made characters to pop into a chronicle. The big downside for me was that a lot of these characters, examples mostly, were made for the Miami setting in the core rulebook. Some of them could be popped into a chronicle, and most of the true fae, and the hobgoblins were generic enough to drop in any chronicle, but really this book supplies ideas, far more than it does ready made baddies. It does have rules for creating true fae, fetches, hobgoblins, as well as rules for storytelling the mad and privateers and loyalists, and other antagonistic lost. Overall a good supplement but not quite as helpful as rites of spring.
