My review: I absolutely loved The Childe! It was well written; it caught my attention from the first pages. C.A. Kunz did something that only very good authors do – the book kept me behind it and I did not put it away until the last page was turned. And I wanted to read it again! Regarding the plot: The setting was wonderfully created. Even though it is about high school girl and about her coming to age, it has so many interesting and intriguing plots, so it does not seem as a usual high-school or usual teenage girl. And it’s not. When I started reading I was very curious to understand what does The Childe means, but it was revealed towards the end of the book and it still left so many questions open. Still, everything what was going on in the high school and around and with Cat was brilliantly written – there were interesting supportive characters who were fun to read about; there were fascinating friendships and secrets, secrets which have great influence on Cat’s life. When Cat starts at the high school, everything seems to go fine – Cat has her friends, she gets to the swimming team, she finds a guy who she is interested about. And then strange things start to happen – people start to disappear, Cat meets a witch, she starts to feel awkwardly, she feels that someone is until her world breaks – she finds out a truth about her family. At the same time there are parallel stories going on. Cat receives a book on a fair in a weird book store which seems to tell her a story, a story she still does not understand. Besides that, there is a coven of vampires who has special interest in Cat. As the story develops, Cat is drawn to a young man Ryan, so the good start for a love story is not absent either! 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. C. A. Kunz created a very interesting protagonist in my opinion. She was my favorite character together with Ryan. Ryan was simply adorable! He is good looking, sweet, warmhearted and … a vampire! I loved everything about him and the scene where he gives his ring to Cat was so cute. There were many supportive characters and C. A. Kunz did incredible work with them. Just to mention few of my favorites: Cat’s cat Jewels who is making visits at Cat’s room. I have a feeling that Jewels is not just a cat, but my hunch was not confirmed in this book. I loved Miss Amaya, Cat’s teacher who is also a witch. She introduces a different world to Cat by taking Cat under her interest and protection. Cat’s friends were likeable and seemed very real. I am also curious about Julie – who is she and how will she guard Cat? As you can understand there are many important supportive characters which role is not revealed in the first book and that made me very intrigued. I cannot wait to read the second book in the series! I simply need to know! Generally: I loved this book! If you like young adult books which has a great content, interesting characters and a very good plot, then The Childe by C. A. Kunz is a must read for you! Buy it! 5 stars.

I highly recommend this book for all those who love Stephanie Meyers or Cassandra Clare. This is an excellent start for this series. You really start to relate to the characters and want to know more. I am eagerly awaiting the 2nd book.
