Becoming A Legend - B. Kristin McMichael

I love B. so damn hard! For so many reasons, and not just because we’re both B’s. Her writing is out of this world fantastic. I fell in love when I read her first novel To Stand Beside Her. I was enthralled with the confidence and the courage that B. Kristin showed in her debut novel. Ever since, I’m proud to say that B. Kristin McMichael is one of my top FIVE favorite authors of all time. ( I have yet to put them in order, but she’s definitely up there!)

Ok so I loved the first book in this series, but to say I am so mad after reading this one is an understatement . You have got to be kidding me. I am speechless and don't think I want to read the next one. I am not happy about Devin's part in this book, nor do I really like Ari right now. I am also mad about Andrew's part. I am only giving it 3 stars instead of 2 because I like the idea behind it, just not how it's playing out.
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 t

I have read this book before but a long time ago, I loved it then and I loved it now! Ari is slowly learning about night humans and more about herself. With plenty of action and drama There is a lot going on, the story is well paced and draws you into Ariannas new world, fantastic read

**I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)**

I found this book a bit more confusing than the first but that was probably due to the fact that because it was a second in a trilogy it spent most of the time tossing out relevant information that would lead up to the last book. I thought that it was well written since it reflected Arianna's confusion well and I was happy that we learned at the same time as her because it kept me interested and will help lead

I loved the first book, The Legend of the Blue Eyes by B. Kristin McMichael, so much that the author graciously supplied me with a copy of the second book in the series. This in no way effects my final review of this book.

This book picks up about a year later from the first book. For most of the book Arianna remains just as ignorant about the world of night humans as she did in the first book, except it's a year later. I

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the author for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this book.
Well, as always I loved the writing style of the author, it’s so comfortable that I quickly got lost in the mesmerizing yet dangerous world that the author created so brilliantly without even one mistake.
Ari’s life hasn’t come on the right track and now many of her close people are deceiving her and

Ok i want to begin by saying how excited I was to get my copy of the second book in this series. I am addicted to this authors books and her style of writing - she is truly gifted and i am happy to say she didn't disappoint with this latest book.
It was a perfect follow on to 'the legend of the blue eyes' and more than I could have wished for. She has a gift of creating characters and worlds that can draw me as a reader fully into - which is something that is very difficult for me. Her characters

Let me start by saying that this book is equally as amazing as the first one. Damn B. Kristin, I loved it!

The characters were perfect and my god, I adored (I still do) Andrew with every fiber of my being. I just loved the debt of his character and his personality so much. How he handles himself and how he thinks. Man, I just love him. (view spoiler)
**I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.**

It was awesome.

I mean B. Kristin McMichael, really knows how to keep an audience. She had me guessing what would happen, straight to the end of the book. I wasn't sure night human or day human would appear next, who would betray whom or who Arianna would choose to love.

What really had me though (and I mentioned it before in the first book) was Devin. Even though I was a little upset with him in this book, I still LOVE him...I was SO fru

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Becoming a Legend is even better than the first book of this trilogy. Relationships become more evolved and more political stuff starts to happen. Ari's relationship to each keeper has changed since book one, some have strictly become friends and others want more. It's a bit of a toss up of who she actually wants to be with. The politics amongst each vampire race are starting to push Ari harder, she needs to start

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on and the Author.

The story just gets better! I was so involved with the characters and the story that I could not put the book down. Arianna has so much to deal with and being new to this world and being a teenager just makes it that much more difficult. Her connection to her keepers is touching and emotional. She grows up a lot in this book and starts to take on her role as the leader a l

I was so excited to read the second book in this series and I loved it. This book had everything in it from the great characters from the last book along with action, adventure, and romance. Arianna becomes a stronger character and like the title of this book she really is Becoming the Legend. Everything is thought out very well and the descriptions of everything are wonderful. In the confusing night world it feels like the reader is learning everything right along with Arianna, which I like a l ...more

Arianna is back. For the past year she has worked to solidify her control over her four clans while trying to understand who and what she is. But deadly plots, bitter betrayals, and long-standing political traditions threaten her happiness - and her life.

I'm still in love with this series and I can't really explain why. Yes, it stems from the vampire/werewolf craze that has flooded bookstores in recent years but it's something different. I love the Gaelic undertones in this night human world and

Another great book in the series. This takes us further into the story of Arianna grace and her life as the leader of two opposing clans of night people. this second book was well written and some of the minor details that were in the first book like jumping locations with out a lead up have been cleared up. I knew that Kristen McMichael was only going to get stronger in her writing and i was right.

I loved this book! I love B.Kristen's story.

This book started off where the first left off, and did not leave anything out. We got to know more about the legend, which I am very happy about.

I am loving Arianna with Andrew, and hope the stay together. I can't wait to read the next book!

All in all this book kept me hooked, It had so much detail, and the perfect amount of romance mixed in with the Paranormal.

The twists and turns were really perfect. Not too much and not too many. Just enough to keep the story moving along. The decisions made in book 1 carry over and progress well in this book. The friction between the characters was also nice. Liked how the main H was finding her footing in the book.

The second book is out...hooray! Definitely getting better by each book. I have to say that I am so glad that Ari is starting to be her own person. Hopefully by the next book it won't be all about the boys, but more about her as a leader.

Well, this was sucky. I actually really liked the first book, and I was excited to see Arianna mature in this one as she had to deal with the politics of her new world.
But we got to see nothing of that.
Instead the story begins, nearly a year after book one - for no apparent reason other than so we could have another slew of birthday parties.
I was fine with how passive Arianna was in the first book as she needed to get introduced into the whole supernatural, what I am not fine with i

Sutch a disappointment. While I could somehow accept the first book in trilogy to be purely world building and character introducing without any action,to have the same for a second book in instalment is just too mutch.Yes,it do give us a better understanding of the world,characters and possible conflict.But at least ONE bright scene to remember this book by would have been great.Otherwise I got a feeling of reading fluently written report who basically gives very little information while leavin ...more

A year has passed since Arianna was thrown into this new world full of history, rules, and information she still knows nothing about. And us readers will be as in the dark as the main character. Not fun, right? Anyway, this volume will illustrate a real problem: Arianna knows nothing of her own prophecy, and as her powers grow, so does the attempts on her life/kidnapping. Thankfully, this sixteen-year-old will try to grow into a real person and demand answers,

McMichael has done it again. I loved this book from beginning to end. I picked it up right away after finishing book one in the Blue Eyes Trilogy. It was even better than I expected. Fantastic read. I'm a little sad. I am still team Devin! But Andrew is a nice addition to the story. I thought he was creepy at first with the way he stalked her in book one, but his creepiness turned true affection. Can't wait to see where the last book takes me. Again, it was written beautifully and the characters ...more
BKM is ruining me. It's impossible for me to focus on anything else while reading this series! My heart is breaking because I can't immediately start Winning the Legend (book #3). My heart is also breaking for these characters who went through SO much in this book, while also maturing and growing in their powers. There is so much love in this series and I can't wait to read what happens next!

Great Story

Love this series. Just keeps getting better and better. I am just upset that she is picking Andrew over Devin. I think she should have faught a little harder for him. Something with Andrew is just too easy. Guess I will find out in book 3.

I really liked this book. I felt the main characters were well developed and likable. The first book was better but I liked this one as well. There are a lot of love plot twist that I was unsure about but it did not feel forced. I love these "fluff" books
