TitleThe Legend of the Blue Eyes
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.
"You really need to go to sleep," he said, as he scooped her into his arms and carried her back to her room.
"But I can't fall asleep," she complained, struggling to get out of his grasp. "It's still too noisy in this house."
"You have to get used to it. Your sense of hearing has increased now, and it won't change," he added.
"But," she began to complain again.
Devin sat down on the bed beside her. Arianna stared in shock as he began to unbutton his shirt.
"What are you doing?" she asked, moving away from him.
"Come here," he directed in a serious tone. He patted the bed and patiently waited. She slowly crawled back to him, sitting on the edge of the bed. Devin took her hand and placed it on his bare chest. "There's something a dearg-dul can hear even better than voices."
Arianna felt his heart beating beneath her hand. Closing her eyes, she concentrated on the sound of the blood rushing through his body. Arianna began to feel the outside world dimming. She could no longer hear the guests at the party, or the maid down the hall. Everything was covered up by the gentle thumping of Devin's heart. Arianna felt her body being moved, but she didn't fight it. The urge to sleep was slowly drawing over her. Without the distracting noises around her, she could finally rest.
"Devin," she asked, as she drifted off to sleep. "Promise me that you will always take care of me."
"Of course," he replied as she drifted off.
