Friday Finds! (#7)

Every week I try to find two e-books for free that actually sound interesting. This week's picks are........

The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael

Blue Eyes Trilogy Book 1

Book Description (From Goodreads)

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.

My Thoughts

Yes, I love vampire books!! Arianna's parents seem like they were the Romeo and Juliet of this Night Human world, which means Arianna is a bridge between the two different sides. She will probably be involved in a somewhat game of tug-of-war between the two sides.

I am really interested in this world and finding out what makes the two sides so different. I am so glad this book popped up for free on my wishlist!


Broken by Dean Murray

Broken by Dean Murray a Reflections novel

Book Description (From Goodreads)

Adri Paige is too busy dealing with the emotional fallout from losing half of her family to deal with boys. At least she thought so until the two most intriguing guys in her new school take an interest in her.

Both boys are gorgeous and blessed with obscene amounts of money. They should have the emotional depth of note cards, but instead display undercurrents she doesn't fully understand. Rumors the pair destroys peoples' livelihoods seem ludicrous until she gets caught in the crossfire and her family almost loses their home. She's increasingly unsure either boy is really human, and their rivalry is rapidly turning deadly.

Broken is a complete novel in its own right, but also represents one-half of a double novel when paired with Torn. Regardless of which book you start with, the two are designed such that you can continue on to the other in order to get answers to questions not answered in the book you started with. The series continues with Splintered which is available as part of the Bitten Story Bundle.

My Thoughts

So, I'm pretty sure that there is a wolf on the cover, so I'm thinking werewolves are involved somewhere in some way. It is definitely possible that one of the boys, or both, could be a werewolf. Oh, and since I mentioned the boys, I'm also thinking that there could be a love triangle..........

Okay I know some people see the word love triangle and actually physically cringe. But, I am not one of those individuals. It is true that some love triangles are terrible and you just want them to end, but truly good ones are really amazing and I love them so much!! I'm definitely hoping this is one of those really good ones, if there even is one. 

Also, Dean Murray has created an entire world with these books. There are even multiple entry points from different perspectives, which is extremely cool!! 


You can check out The Legend of the Blue Eyes and Broken on Goodreads!!
