Devin Alexander grew up as the only day human in a world surrounded by vampire-like night humans who drank blood, sometimes his blood. He spent his life training toward one goal: the protection of one of those blood drinkers, Arianna Grace. But what is he supposed to do when the blue-eyed girl of the legends doesn’t need him anymore? What does his life mean then? How is a guy supposed to move on when the girl he has yearned over for a decade has chosen someone else?
Before he can even start to figure out his new life without Arianna, Devin has to deal with another problem. He needs to take care of some unfinished business with a night human he has known for less than a month, but with whom he is magically bound.
Vanessa McKinny has promised that she knows a way to undo the spell she placed on Devin to save his life. Devin would do anything to break the bond to be free of her, even if it means traveling to the sidhe village, a place inhabited by a race of night humans that has not had a day human visitor in more than a hundred years. If he doesn’t want to get stuck, he must work with Nessa to find a way to break the bond. Only then can Devin have time to get back to finding his new goal in life, unless he discovers that his path lies with the sidhe.
This is a spin off from the Blue Eyes Trilogy, but if you have not read it don’t worry as you will still enjoy this story.
The story is about Devin Alexander a day human who when trying to protect Arianna Grace a girl who he owes his life almost loses his life. Vanessa the princess of the sidhe night humans tries to save him, but the only way to save him is to magically bind herself to Devin. And so this starts the journey as Vanessa needs to get them both safely back to her village where the bond can be broken and Devin can go his own way. They then form an unlikely friendship as Devin helps Vanessa to see the truth about the people she thought were her allies.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this book as I had just finished reading a previous YA title that had me buzzing. I wasn’t disappointed with this story at all. It flowed nicely and the plot was pretty decent and a bit predictable. I liked the pace of the book not too much time was spent on describing the irrelevant things in the story. I really liked Devin although there was too much confusion about the different types of Night humans and cant Devin just be a human as opposed to a “Day Human” but hey this is fantasy so I’ll go with it. A really enchanting story. Will be looking forward to reading book 2.
