From Goodreads: Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager growing up in the small port town of Astoria. Sure, she is taller than average, has a mane of fiery red hair that is impossible to tame, is left handed, and has one eye that is sky blue and one that is amber, but that is where the differences end . . . unless you include the minor detail of her slow metamorphosis into the Childe.
We all know how difficult high school can be, and for Cat Colvin it is no different. Except for the fact she has the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times.
This first book in this coming of age fantasy series follows Cat's life through the twists and turns toward finding out what and who she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with biting humor, darkness, and yes, a few life lessons as well.
My review: I will never get tired of paranormal books. EVER. Especially the newest ones that are mixing vampires, werewolves, witches, wizards and ghosts into their books. The Childe included at least 2 of these (spoiler free ya know) that is all I will say! I loved this book. It was such a page turner. I loved living in Cat's world. I really felt like I was too. The characters were so easy to relate to (even the one's your not supposed to)!
The description of all the places in the book was so vivid in my mind. I love paranormal. I love the high school settings. I love the mystery, the bad boys/girls. I love the forbidden love/like/friendships of the main and not main characters. I love SECRETS and the revealing. I love the coming to power(s)! GUESS WHAT? This book had all that for me. Really enjoyed it. I can't WAIT for the next books in this series.
Carol and Adam have written a WONDERFUL story. I can't wait to see how it further evolves and how the characters come into their own. I have so many questions for the future books. I LOVE THAT!!
Note: in this book there is a cool feature that Cat has that I can relate to and there is a character named MINDY in the book. This made me feel SUPER close to the book too. hehe....pure coincidence though!
Looking for a great paranormal book? I suggest this one! It was a lot of fun to read!!!
