Welcome everyone to The Childe BLOG TOUR!!!!! I'm so excited to a part of this tour! There are lots of stops this month so make sure you check them ALL out for your chance at winning a KINDLE FIRE!!!! Also, there will be a chance to win a paperback copy of The Childe and a swag pack. Keep reading to find out more!!!


 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.


I have to say...I LOVED this book. The Childe is such an inviting book, one you can really get into and not put it down till its done. Then, your left begging for more. Which, thankfully, there is more! The story is very creatively written, and I just loved the characters. The authors did a fantastic job of making the story feel real. It felt as though it could be my town. My friends. My life. Ok, maybe 10yrs ago, but get the point. Cat is a wonderful character that is easy to connect with. Her and her friends are just your average teenagers, with average problems. Or so it seems.... Cat doesn't realize that she is constantly under protection from her family. Then she starts having fainting spells, visions, and seeing odd people around.  Slowly doors are being opened around her, and she begins to see that things aren't what they seem. I wish I could keep going on about this book, but I would definitely spoil it for you all. So I wrap this up by saying GO CHECK THIS BOOK OUT!!! You won't be disappointed! I can't wait to get my hands on Dark Days, the second book in this series!
