The Day Human Prince (The Day Human Trilogy #1) by B. Kristin McMichael Day human, Devin Alexander, is magically bound to night human, Vanessa McKinny.  In order to break the bond that was put into place to save Devin’s life, they need to travel to the Sidhe village, where day humans are not welcome. I loved this story.  It felt refreshing and original.  I happily lost sleep by staying up late to read this book. When I started reading The Day Human Prince, I didn’t realize this was a spin-off from The Blue Eyes Trilogy.  I have not read that series and had no problem following and enjoying this book.  What was mentioned, like Devin’s relationship with Arianna Grace, the main character from The Blue Eyes Trilogy, sparked my interest in reading that series. Devin is a likeable hero.   His life is at a crossroad, and he grows throughout this novel.  He is a noble character that I enjoyed reading about. The Day Human Prince had many unexpected twists.  The story is well-written and easy to follow.  It was full of creative imagery that added greatly to the story. This is one series I definitely want to continue.   Complimentary copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

A free copy of this book was provided by Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. Several years ago, my husband convinced me to watch X-men: The Last Stand. I protested that I hadn’t seen the first two X-men movies and wouldn’t understand if I started with the third one, but he assured me I’d be able to follow along. I conceded, and we proceeded to watch the film. About half an hour in I still had no idea who the characters were or why they were doing what they were doing, and I kept asking my husband what was happening. His answer, consistently, was: “Oh, if you’d seen the first two movies it would make more sense.” Reading The Day Human Prince was a similar experience. When I started the book, I had no idea that it was a spin-off of McMichael’s Blue Eyes trilogy. I was disappointed by the one-dimensional characters and lack of strong world building. Once I discovered that the action had begun in a previous series, though, it made sense that everything wasn’t being explained in detail. The foundation had already been laid in Blue Eyes. I’d just missed it. Everything that seemed remotely interesting in The Day Human Prince – Devin’s unrequited love for Arianna Grace, his tragic history, details about the night human culture – was apparently dealt with in the Blue Eyes books and only mentioned briefly in this spin-off. It was a letdown, and though the plot was decent I think I would have enjoyed it more if I'd read the preceding books. Then again, maybe not, because I had a huge problem with this book that had nothing to do with the plot or characters: the writing is terrible. There’s so much that bothers me about McMichael’s writing style that I don’t know where to start. The phrasing is awkward, the sentence structure is off, and there’s endless explanation about things that really don't require it. What really got me, though, was the point of view. As a general rule, I prefer first-person to third-person. There are several fantastic books that use third-person successfully (The Raven Boys, the Harry Potter books, most of the novels in The Queen’s Thief series), but there are also myriad novels that don’t. They distance the reader from the characters, rely heavily on telling rather than showing, and engage in head-hopping, which always drives me batty. There are several instances of each of these problems in The Day Human Prince. They're hard to overlook, and I found myself becoming distracted from the plot because I was so bothered by the writing. There are also a few other niggling tidbits, like insta-love and absurd superhuman abilities – Devin can snatch an invisible arrow out of the air on its way to a target, for example – that kept me from truly appreciating this book. All of the good stuff – like cool magic and sleeping sidhe kings waiting to be awakened– gets overwhelmed by the parts that are less than great. I may not have given this book a very positive review, but I will say that there are people who will really love The Day Human Prince, especially those who read and enjoyed the Blue Eyes trilogy. Many of my complaints about this book – particularly the ones about the point of view – are based purely on personal preference, so don't automatically let me dissuade you from reading it. Instead, I recommend going to Amazon and checking out a few sample pages. If you're ok with McMichael's writing style, this may be a better book for you than it was for me.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 unicorns - I really liked it! ***Received the ebook for an honest review The cover is beautiful and looks magical :)  I love it!!! This is the first book of The Day Human trilogy, and it picks up where The Blue Eyes Trilogy left off with Devin.  I love that I didn’t have to lose the world created by BK when The Blue Eyes Trilogy concluded because it really is a wonderful and unique world which I wouldn’t want to lose :) When I started reading this adventure, I did not like how Nessie was portrayed in the car.  I had really grown to like her already, so I put off a little at the start.  After the attack, the book seemed to align more like who I recognized her to be, so I was okay.  Of course Devin is amazing as always, but he has always been unique and broody while protecting those who need it :)  I have always loved his morals and values that he portrays though I’m hoping he will get his happily ever after now that Arianna has gotten hers :) BK’s writing is very similar to The Blue Eyes Trilogy,  and I think if you loved those, you will want to read this spin-off series!  Her descriptions make the story leap off the pages into your imagination.  I wish I could make magic like she does with her words.  I can’t wait to read the next book which I happen to already have bought :) I recommend this series to those who are already BK’s fans, Devin’s fans, and of course any paranormal fan who has read The Blue Eyes trilogy should definitely start there first because it is where I loved Devin first :)  Of course I would love to add this to my classroom library too!!!

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.
