The Childe

Cat Colvin
Average teenager?
Or something else entirely?

Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager. Sure, she's taller than most girls, has a mane of fiery red hair that's impossible to tame, is left-handed, and her eyes are two different colors, but that's where the differences end . . . unless you include the minor detail of her slow transformation into a Childe. High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it's no different. This is especially true when she's faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat's family not telling her? - Amazon

My Review

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!
