So worth it! It was a little long and took a while for me to really get into it though. I genuinely enjoyed The Childe. Regarding the characters: Cat was cool! She was in many ways described as a normal teenage girl, but she was strong, feisty, curious and friendly. She was my favorite character together with Ryan. Ryan was simply adorable! He is good looking, sweet, and warmhearted. I loved everything about him and the scene where he gives his ring to Cat was so cute. Also, there is a character named Rachel and I love when my name is in books! I loved Cat's parents too, funny and caring. I do, unfortunately, have something bad to say - this book confused the heck out of me! It went from one person talking to another and it just confused me. I had to re-read a lot of it because it didn't make sense it took so long for me to figure out what each individual was and the definition of a Childe. I did enjoy it though and can't wait for a chance to read the second book, Dark Days. I want to thank both authors for sending me a copy to read and review, it was extremely generous and I can't thank you enough!
