Devin Alexander grew up as the only day human in a world surrounded by 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.
The Day Human Prince by B. Kristin McMichael
The Day Human Prince is a unique twist on a somewhat vampire like creature called Night Humans, a "sidhe" being, and day humans, which the best I can tell is everyday humans. Devin Alexander, day human and Vanessa (Nessa), night human are heading back to Nessa's home so they can hopefully break a blood bond Nessa created to save Devin's life.
This story reads kind of choppy with frequently repetitive statements, while some vital information seems to be omitted with your assumptions our only hope insight. For that reason alone, I couldn't really get into the story.
The premiss was pretty great. This story screams potential, with some editing and more background information this would be a amazing young adult read. As it stands, its an ok read 2.5 star for me.
