Review

"I'm loving this new take on vampires!" -Night Owl Reviews

"Okay! WOW! This novel is amazing!! I'm surprised at just how much I enjoyed reading this novel! The Legend of the Blue Eyes is the first novel in the trilogy and let me tell you, its worth a read! B. Kristin McMichael has a new and original take on Vampires and the Vampire World."
-Ana @ So Many Books So Little Time

The world building is phenomenal! It kept me glued to the pages, wondering what would happen next. I couldn't help but love all of these characters.
-Ren @ A Little Bit of R&R

"The Legend of the Blue Eyes is overall a fantastic read with a new spin on the world of the Night Humans. The story feels natural, not forced, and I think that this series will really develop into something great."
-Bethany @ Reading Vixens

"Arianna finds herself embroiled in kidnappings, poisonings, and nefarious plotting to undermine current leadership. With little choice but to embrace this new life, Ms. McMichael keeps you interested in Arianna's rise to glory and pursuit of adjustment and happiness. The story is far from done."
-Carmen @ The Reading Cafe

I loved that there was more that one paranormal being in the story! Vampires, Lycans, Demons oh my! Ariana's character is truly someone you can connect with because she is that shining light of a girl in a world of hard night humans.
-Jessica @ My World of Books

From the Author

While I never intended to write more than just this trilogy, it has been so much fun that I continue to write in the same paranormal world. This is the first book in the night human world. Arianna's journey includes The Legend of the Blue Eyes, Becoming a Legend, and Winning the Legend. The stories in the night human world continue in Devin's tales: The Day Human Prince, The Day Human King, and The Day Human Way. More stories in the night human world will be released in 2016 in a new trilogy.

Uhg... This book. I had to stop at 24% I was having so much trouble reading it. The 5 star reviews for this are completely suspect to me now.

Good:
Great premise!
Interesting backstory setup for the main character.

Bad:
Everything else. No, seriously.
The writing in this book is so repetitive, it will drive you mad. Here's a small example: "Ariana felt light headed. Her day had been filled, non-stop, with new sights, sounds, tastes, and ideas. Now, Gabriel was adding in one more piece of the puzzle. Adrianna felt strained from trying to understand everything." Then 3 sentences later: "In the past 24 hours, her life had changed by leaps and bounds, not the baby steps she was used to." You get 2 "how she felt"s and 2 "overwhelmed" descriptions within the same EXTREMELY long and drawn out paragraph. A few pages later, you get another internal musing of "her life had changed dramatically in just a short 24 hours." That doesn't stop either, there are more.

There is no time taken to describe half of the things that are happening. She's in one room, then suddenly in the bath, then suddenly drying off and in bed. Not a single description of how she got from place to place, just her thinking things she's already thought followed by confusion. Example: she's in the bathtub thinking, and then this sentence happens. "After rinsing off the soup and putting on her pajamas, Arianna tried to go to sleep in the king-sized, four-post bed..." The same thing happened to get her in the room and in the tub a few pages earlier.

At one point a character said that he would have "protected her with every hair on his body", referencing her abandonment. Every hair?

Put away all your preconceived notions about Vampires. This novel will blow you away, and just may invite you back into your previous love of the supernatural. [If you've left it, of course] I'm the type that puts certain genre books on the `back burner' at times, because I get sick of the same repetition with different characters and different authors. Then there is that ONE novel that comes along and just sucks you right back into it all again. THIS is that novel. So, I'd like to give a huge thank you to B. Kristin, for reminding me why I love the paranormal world.

B. Kristin McMichael. I have four words just for you. I stinkin' love you. You blew me away with your first novel, To Stand Beside Her. I couldn't imagine that your next novel, of which is a completely different genre could be so amazing. [Ok, Yes I did] The Legend of the Blue Eyes was phenomenal. I'm always nervous when I go into a "vampire" novel, but I loved your last book so much I HAD to give this one a try. Once again, you've broken the writing mold, this time in the supernatural realm.

I was completely in a trance, from the beginning to the end. . Everything about this book is so VIVID. The imagery was simply brilliant and the characters were just perfect. Arianna, makes you fall in love with her right away. She's just adorable, while feeling everything that is happening to her as if you are the one writing the story. As most books go, there's usually a love interest. In this novel.. there is 2. However, it's not the everyday run of the mill love triangle. Oh no, no, no. Devin [He's mine, BACK OFF!] is astonishing. Devin is thoughtful, deep, stern and a damn sexy protector! Yes... I may go crazy with my book boyfriends sometimes, but this boy just pulls on all the right strings to your heart.

Wow - B. Kristin McMichael hits it out of the part once again! This is not your normal paranormal fantasy book.

The Legend of the Blue Eyes is a breath of fresh air for this genre. I have been tired of reading the same vampire-type, zombie-type, blah, blah, blah, but this book renewed my love for the YA, Coming of Age, fantasy novel.

Arianna is not your average teenager. Life in the Midwest is really not all that exciting while growing up. It is cold, lacking opportunity, and down-right boring at times for most. Arianna experiences this until she gets caught off-guard by who/what she REALLY is. This realization sets the reader up for an awesome plot that is full of imaginative scenes, twists, turns, pulse-exploding intensity, and amazing characters.

The plot is great and unique while the writing style is smoooooth. This is not your "clear skies ahead" kind of novel though, it is more "buckle your seat belts, we expect turbulence."

Overall this book hit it out of the park. This is a fresh take on vampires and not regurgitated content that is re-packaged. B. Kristin McMichael flexes her muscles in this one - showing that she is the go-to author in this genre. She is an excellent writer and further establishes herself here.

Two thumbs up, highly recommended, and five stars! (Did I cover them all?)

This is a really interesting series. I liked the main character Ari straight off. She is not an overly angsty teen, yeah! Although, she takes things much calmer than I might in the same situation!

She is thrown into a strange new world pretty quickly. One of the things that annoys me in this book is that she gets to learn about what she is but the reader does not. You hear about her studies but there is very little detail given back about what she learned. It is something that really bothered me, I wanted to understand all the nuances of her new world and felt cheated when I was left out of the details.

The narrative is mostly from Ari's POV, but there are a few times when others chine in. Those moments were a bit confusing because they were only a sentence here and there in the middle of the existing narration. I would say either stick top one POV or make it mixed with whole sections of the other character's thoughts. Otherwise it is jarring and too jumpy.

The world is really rich and interesting. A lot comes at you in a short time and there are many supporting characters to keep track of. I love her friends and her keepers. It will be interesting to see the whole story evolve. I am still eager to hear what the entire legend is about her!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Caprisha Page, who is terrific. I love the energy she puts into the read and her swift pace. Her voices are consistent and help to relieve some of the confusion when another character takes on the narrative. She has a sweet and sassy quality to her read that fits the character perfectly. I hope she stays with the whole series!

Overall, this book was intriguing. There is still so much to learn about the characters and the legend.
