Review - Becoming a Legend by B. Kristin McMichael

Becoming a Legend
The Blue Eyes Trilogy #2
by B. Kristin McMichael

Goodreads blurb:  Arianna Grace is about to turn seventeen and her life has been very complicated lately. She is the leader of four clans of night humans: dearg-dul, baku, tengu, and lycan. While the four clans seem to get along better with each other, there is internal conflict on both sides of her family, not to mention the three boys vying for her attention.

Edward Lucan is making a chase for the power to lead the baku clans and is playing his cards by using his nephew Andrew to lure Arianna into a trap. Unfortunately for Lucan, Andrew has his own plans. He has spent the last year waiting for Arianna to see him as more than a friend, and he now finds it necessary to make a move for her affection, despite his uncle.

In the dearg-dul estate, Arianna discovers that the ambitious Lord Seeger has been laying his own strategies for power and is slowly poisoning her. After getting away with her grandfather's murder, he is setting his sights on her. Luckily for Arianna, her team is on to all of the plans and is making some plans of their own. Will it be enough to keep Arianna safe? Several people close to Arianna have been keeping secrets. If Arianna is to take power and control of the night, she will need to know the truth. Will someone finally tell her what it truly means to become the legend everyone is waiting for, before it is too late to turn back?

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!
First, Kristin is a sweetheart when I read the first book and liked it so much, she gifted me the 2nd book for an honest review.  I love when an author talks to their fans.  She is a sweetheart :)

The cover has the same beautiful blue-eyed girl from book 1 with the tribute to the legend in the background.  I don’t know why but eyes are something that always grab my attention, so the series surrounding blue eyes and the cover are what drew my attention to it.

This book was even better than the last one :)  The author weaves a fabulous story :) It has all sorts of action, another birthday, parties, deception, more secrets, getaways, and so much more.  I loved the growth in Ari’s character in this book as she starts to take control of her life.  She learns all sorts of new things about herself and the legend in this book.  I was sucked into the story and loved every minute.  I love the world Kristin has created, and you learn so much more about it in this book.  I cannot wait for book 3.  I hope we don’t have to wait long :)

I highly recommend this must read for paranormal fans, and I will be looking to add the paperback to my classroom library for my budding paranormal fans :) She is one of my favorite authors :)

Interested in reading??
