Title: The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael
Arianna Grace liked her boring, Midwestern, teenage life where she ignored the many unanswered questions of her childhood. Why were her parents dead? Why did she not have family? Where was she raised until she was five? When someone offers to explain it all, Arianna thinks she’s just getting answers. Instead, she is thrown into a world of night humans who drink blood.
On Arianna’s sixteenth birthday, her world is thrown upside down when she changes into a vampire. Night humans, or demons, as some call them, live in normal society. Learning all of the new rules of a world she didn’t know existed might be hard enough, but it’s further complicated by two former-friends that now want to help her take her role as the successor to her grandfather.
There is a war going on between the night humans. Sides have been taken and lines are not crossed. Four main clans of night humans are struggling for control of the night. Divided into two sides, clans Baku and Tengu have been at war for centuries with the clans Dearg-dul and Lycan. That is, until Arianna Grace finds out the truth; she’s the bridge of peace between the two sides. But not everyone wants peace. With the night humans divided, Arianna is now a pawn in the war between them. She must choose a side—her mother’s family or her father’s—and for once in her life, decide her own fate.
Review: So I got this book through Amazon for free. I usually have good luck with free books through Barnes and Noble but this was the first one that I found through Amazon. When I started reading it I thought that it was a little slow for the first couple of chapters but once I got further into it I got completely hooked. The plot is great and the characters are well rounded. I love books that have to ability to make you feel the emotions of the characters and this book definitely did that. I found myself laughing, smiling and crying while reading this book. The author really gets you to feel what the main character Arianna is feeling. You really get to see her grow a little in this book and I’m hoping that in the next two books. I have a feeling that the excitement in the story is just getting started. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes to read anything with vampires and werewolves. I give it a huge five out of five!
