The Legend of the Blue Eye by B. Kristin McMicheal
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.
I received this book for an honest review on goodreads.
This book had me from the synopsis, I loved the cover. I think B. Kristin McMichael got everything right with this book. This is the first book by this author that I have read, I don't think it will be the last. the pace and flow was just right for me. I read it in one sitting.
Our story starts with Arianna Grace, who lives with her aunt and uncle because her parents were murdered. She has the same routine every Friday night when she meets her friends at the cinemas. When Ari starts getting notes attached to the bottom of her cup at the cinema she is intrigued, as it mentions her parents. Ari is then taken into a world she never knew existed, where she has to quickly has to adapt to survive.
I loved all the characters in this book especially Ari, Devin, Turner even Andrew. The only one I didn't like was Andrew's uncle. the descriptions about the story made you feel like you could see the picture clearly.
I cant wait to read Becoming a Legend(Book 2 of the Blue Eyes Legend) Which is due out in June 2013.
