The Childe by C.A. Kunz Blog Tour


The Childe by C.A. Kunz

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?

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.

My Review: HOLY COW!!! This book is EPIC! I could not put this book down because I was so caught up in Cat's World that it was hard to put down. I also really LOVE the fact that this book was written by a mother and son is Incredible!

So without further ado here is my review.......

We all know what it is like to start high school. Well Cat and her friends are beginning their Freshman year at high school and are nervous. They are not really sure what to expect but they are ready to start a new era and conquer the fears of being a Freshman.

What I really enjoyed was the way the story went as things started to unfold and secrets were uncovered the characters learned how to hold their own. This story grips you and you can not put this books down. If you like Paranormal and bad boy and bad girl books this is THE BOOK FOR YOU! There is so much action going on that you feel like you are in the story.

The descriptions in this book are so vivid and well done as you are reading you get a sense for everything that is going on. The art work in this book is kick butt as well. As I was reading and looking at the pictures I could see myself in this world that Carol and Adam have created.

I am Patiently waiting for book two and when it comes out I will be there waiting for my copy! Want a great read and a FANTASTIC paranormal world? Well what are you waiting for come along on the best Paranormal ride of your life!

I am so happy to be a part of this blog tour. The mother and son writing duo is awesome and they are having a great giveaway for this blog tour.

I've read this book and I LOVED it - I had to get some more books to pass around to my friends and their kids! I have talked to the Kunz's (email)and they are the nicest people who absolutely deserve all the best. I really hope they continue to write for years, because, I'll be right there to devour (probably 5 of each, lol) each one!!
