A Breed Apart : The Token by Natasha Rogue

A Breed Apart: The Token

A Breed Apart: The Token


Callie Michaels isn't pretty or popular, but her singing more than makes up for all she lacks. And as long as she focuses on what's really important, she can survive high school. But how can she focus with all the drama? Between her best friend's odd issues and a daily dose of weirdness from the social elite, she's starting to wonder if she's the only normal one around.

He pulled the front door open. "That's how it's done."

I rolled my eyes and made my way through the crowd that had spilled into the hall, muttering. "That's how it's done. Yeah? Where? In the jungle?"

"Yeah." James' breath on my nape sent a chill down my spine. "Something like that."

Just as her life begins spiraling out of control, the answer comes to her in a dream. In exchange for a token of blood, a demon will give her everything she desires. She says "yes." From that point on, she finds herself changing, becoming something far from normal. Something dangerous.

No one is what they seem—least of all her. While the supernatural creatures around her struggle to maintain their humanity, Callie slowly loses hers. She doesn't even know what's important anymore. Friendship, the future, love? And is there anyone who can make her care?

(MY THOUGHTS)
I really loved the first half of A Breed Apart. But I broke my own first rule as book blogger, and that’s to say I loved a book before I finished reading all of it. A Breed Apart is what I call a “Jekyll and Hyde”. Rogue in the beginning half of this book was super, super awesome. I was so impressed saying, WOW, what amazing story. I was actually in awe over this book. But then the author takes a ninety degree turn. What I call a Mr. Hyde move, and I was left saying, what the heck just happened? Rogue had a fantastic storyline going with the two revivals, James and Nick wanting Callie, and the other characters were amazing, too. I loved Callie’s character in first half. She was strong, witty, smart—she was everything I love in an MC. Then poof she’s gone. Yes, I understand what happened to her, but to me, you never destroy your MC to the point of no recovery.

I will never not recommend a book because we all have different tastes. It takes a lot for me to be disappointed in a book, and others might love it. So I will say this is your choose. I wish Rogue would have kept to what she first had going in this book. She really had an awesome story in the first half of A Breed Apart, and I think she is amazing writer, until the Hyde turn. It hurts me to have to give a review like this. I really wanted to love this book.
