Rating: 3.5/5 stars
Schuyler Chase appears to be a beautiful eighteen-year-old girl in suburban Atlanta. In reality, she is an immortal being caught in an epic war between vampires and werewolves. As a half-vampire, half-werewolf hybrid, Skye is an abomination to both–hated, feared and hunted because of her superior supernatural powers. Skye hides from her relentless enemies by pretending to be a high school senior, each year switching schools to keep up the ruse. In her newest school she quickly makes friends, only to discover that they too are immortals–werewolves from the same pack that had killed her parents sixty years earlier. One of them is the devilishly handsome Zac, whose blood calls to her like a siren’s song. Skye fears that her new friends will kill her the moment they discover what she is, despite their opinions about the pointless blood feud. Time and again they stand by her and protect her. But will they be able to stop themselves when their free will is taken from them? Will Skye be forced to kill them to survive?
*I received a copy of The Child of Two Worlds on Goodreads Firstreads in exchange for a review. In no way has this effected my rating/review of the book.*
Schuyler Chase is the kind of protagonist I love. She thinks through her actions and is intelligent at a reasonable level, she’s not smart enough to seem like a know at all and makes good decisions most of the time. Another thing I loved about her was her way of handling her loneliness. She didn’t think of herself as better or worse than everyone else, her lack of attachment to others was just a part of her life. This made her sudden friendship with Sarah and the others much more believable. She unconsciously craved companionship but didn’t know how to form relationships outside of the one with her aunt without ending up hurt when she had to leave or betrayed by the person she desired to be friends with. She was scared. So very scared, here’s a girl whose spent her entire life running and doesn’t know what ‘normal’ really means. It was real bravery on her part to open up to Zac, Caleb, and Sarah but she did it anyway and I think that’s one of the bravest things you can do when your afraid.
I see great potential in M.E Megahee as a writer and I hope that she continues to write this series. I look forward to reading more of her novels in the future.
