Arianna has gathered the outside clans to decide her fate in marriage. A tournament will be held, and she is the prize, whether she wants to be or not.

There is always the nagging worry that the end of a trilogy will leave you wildly disappointed. Thankfully, this was not the case with Blue Eyes! Winning the Legend was everything you could want in a trilogy closing book- all the action, the romantic tension and turmoil, the suspense, and the feeling of being overwhelmed at her new life remains strong in this installment. Although I had my own idea about who Ari should be with, I was pleased with the outcome, and rather enjoyed how many differen ...more

Only read this series because it was in a reverse harem list&I honestly do not know why. This is as far from a legit. reverse harem as any story could get.

I hated this book, not only because she decided to choose Andrew (WHAT EVEN IS A NESSA??) for no apparent reason when if she was choosing (which she shouldn't have been doing if this was rh) she should've chose Devin.
Dude was there from the beginning &suddenly he's not her person??? Are you kidding me?

You know when you have that author you can’t stop gushing about? B. Kristin is one of those authors for me. I absolutely adore her and her words. She had originally won me over with her standalone debut novel To Stand Beside Her. For a while, I gave up on Vampires, Werewolves and the whole lot. Until B. Kristin told me she was coming out with Legend of The Blue Eyes. I’ll admit, I was a little shy, but I had complete faith in B. Kristin, and her writing. I absolutely DEV

The cover is just beautiful and I really love all the covers for this series :) I really want to add these to my classroom library to share with my students….someday when I’m independently wealthy and can afford to do it with all the book I’d love to share with them.

This is the third book in the YA trilogy The Blue Eyes. I read the first two books back in 2013. While you probably do no

I want to cry, I really didn't want this book to end, ever. There is something about the way the author writes and describe things that pulls me into her wonderful world that I don't want to let go and I just want to keep reading and reading her words until the end of time.

Winning the Legend was the perfect third book and final installment of this incredible trilogy. I loved that Arianna (view spoiler). And may I just say that the rela

Winning the Legend was a spectacular ending to this trilogy! I absolutely loved the interactions between Ari and Andrew, they're just the sweetest couple. Turner, Devin, Molina and Thomas definitely brought their A-game for this ending.

We finally meet the other clan leaders when they issue a challenge for Ari's hand in marriage. These men might not want from Ari, what she thinks they have in mind though. All of the facts about the legend are finally uncovered and Ari has the option to either ac

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

Exceptional!! Arianna has finally come into her own and she is making the rules. She must follow old traditions but that doesn't mean she can't change some rules along the way. She has to fight for her freedom and the freedom of all night walkers. She is in constant jeopardy and her keepers have to work very hard to try to protect her. This book was awesome!! The series is
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.
How would you feel when some strangers will fight a tournament for one prize and the prize will be you? Will you accept such a fate? Won’t you want your freedom back?
Well the same thing happens to Ari and to win the hearts and trust of the Night world she has to participate in this and become the pri

*sigh* That was great.

It's funny. The entire series I was a super huge fan of Devin and REALLY REALLY wanted him to be with Arianna in the end and I really thought I would hate if she chose Andrew instead, but honestly I'm not even mad.

Kristin McMichael played it just right. After Devin reaction to having Arianna save him, I knew that McMichael was right, and they were not meant to be. It also only made me love Andrew even

This is it. Arianna's fate and that of the entire night human world has come down to this competition between the thirteen clans. Everyone is fighting over her hand and the power that comes along with it. Can Arianna find a way to decide her own fate? Or will she be forced to marry someone she doesn't love to save her people?

A wonderful conclusion to an excitingly original trilogy. I have really enjoyed sharing in Arianna's trials and triumphs as she grows into her new powers and roles in the ni
Wow! I loved this book 100% all the way thru! This book has a variety of paranormals in it, add in some magic,and romance, and you got yourself on perfect book. The ending was a perfect one for Arianna's story. I am really looking forward to her next instalment. The Spin-off to The Legend of the Blue eyes trilogy, basing on Devin's story. I would recomend this book to just about anyone. This book is fresh, exciting, and unique.

Great Job, and well done! B.Kristen Mcmichael......

I am so sad that this is the end to The Blue Eyes Trilogy. I have loved this series since book one. Each book got more intense and brought you more into Arianna's world. The new characters were just as loveable as the ones that had been with Arianna since book one. This was a perfect ending to a perfect series!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from goodreads.
I enjoyed the trilogy greatly. I liked the hints of political maneuvering and how the heroine refused to have her choices taken away. The romance stayed pg 13 with sweet undertones. I'm looking forward to the spin off series.

At first I was unsure of this series, but the moment Andrew entered I was hooked. He was it for me and reading the series was amazing. I enjoyed seeing how Arianna came into herself and how the world changed around her.

3 stars purely for the ease of reading and the idea behind the book.I really, really hoped that 2 first books were so action free just to build up a great place for the final book.I just had these hopes crushed.How can you write a trilogy about the fight for freedom without any fight in it.Like none,zero,null... I so wanted this book be the peak,to give us some emotions,show us some fine action,at least a grand final scene... I understand that Arianna and Rhys final standoff is intended as a cul ...more

First I want to thank for making this a trilogy because i defiantly could not afford more with all the other books i bought. Second, while it was dad to see Devon and Arianna move on but in glad a decision was made. I had hoped they would end up together but after her forming such a close bond with Andrew I am kinda glad she didn't. Anyways this was a great trilogy and I am glad I got to read it. Thank you.❤

I finally got to read the final book in this trilogy and it did not disappoint. I just love the main character Arianna. Even though she is figuring out a new world she does it while being a complete boss. The author does a marvelous job of showing the growth of all the characters throughout all three books. This one had me on the edge of my seat and I just couldn’t put it down. I even read it at work during the down time.

Great conclusion

I loved this series , read them all in 4 days . This was a perfect conclusion to the trilogy. I can’t wait to read the series about Devin .
A really thrilling end to the series. I love the whole tournament and everything Ari puts in place. She is finally taking the reigns and owning her title as head of 4 houses! She gets to deliver a few set downs along the way, I was like "You go Girl!"

I was a touch annoyed at all the guys loving and wanting her immediately. Thankfully it was explained later and made me less annoyed. I really wish there were more time spent on all the different races and their traits. That part was fascinating and

What a fantastic end to a brilliant story. This book tied up all the ends that were exposed in book 2 and not only were the questions answered but they were tied up in a neat little bow. I loved this series and honestly didn't really want it to end which was why I am absolutely over the moon to learn there's going to be a spin off story about Nessa and Devin.

Shelves: disappointment
Overall, I was rather disappointed in this series. The main character, Arianna, just seems like the cliché heroine that needs a man to save her from everything. This series consistently talks about Arianna being the "most powerful night human ever" but she rarely uses this power unless she's showing off.

She, thankfully, spends less time sleeping in this book than the other two. Also, she finally gets to learn how to fight, but even with her months of training—which is glossed over so much and th

Is this series really over???? WHY????? PLEASE CONTINUE THIS SERIES!!!!

I am so upset that this is the last book of a great series! This series offers all the interesting aspects of sci/fi that I personally LOVE to read! For anyone on the fence about purchasing the book or the series...without giving away too much I can tell you there is magic (one of my favorite features when I am deciding on a new series)& I mean separate groups, both alliesband enemies who posses different powers/strengths
