Review: The Childe
Buy it: Amazon Barnes&Noble
Summary (from Goodreads)
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?
The Childe is the first book in this coming-of-age fantasy series which follows Cat's life through the twists and turns toward finding out whom and what she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with mystery, biting humor, and the paranormal.
This book has wonderfully complex characters and a world that's so intriguing and mysterious you wont be able to put the book down!
I will have to say the characters were my favorite part of the book! I love how Cat (the protagonist) is surrounded by a wonderful family and awesome friends that are supporting her. This book is written in third person omniscient which was a little weird at first to read. For me, it took some getting use to, but I am so glad it was written like that. If the authors wouldn't have let me get into all the characters thoughts I wouldn't have had the chance to get to know how awesome they are, and also it's necessary because Cat is pretty oblivious. I want to tell you all about the character's awesomeness, but I also want you to discover them for yourself!
Carol and Adam do a great job of enticing the reader! They give just enough of the plot, so the reader gets a taste of it, so they want more. In no way is this book predictable! I really liked this because sometimes readers can open the front cover and know what the ending is going to be, and The Childe is not like that!
just to add to all of that the cover is fantabulous and so are the illustrations throughout the book!
