Review: The Day Human Prince
The Day Human Prince by B. Kristin McMichael
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book dives deep into a world of sidhe, night humans, and day humans. The plot picks up after some big events and doesn’t let up until the end. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself drawn into this world of political intrigue and preconceived notions.
Devin is a warrior, trained and raised as a day human surrounded by night humans (aka vampires?). He was tasked with protecting a girl who almost stole his heart. After being freed from that task, Devin was mortally wounded. To save his life, Vanessa (a sidhe) bonded with him under the assumption that this could be undone once he was healed. The story pretty much begins right there, with Vanessa and Devin stuck in a car together on a journey to the sidhe village where Nessa has inherited the throne. A killing blow from her brother (the king) backfired and ended up killing him instead, leaving Nessa the reluctant queen. Caught up yet? All of that gets explained rather quickly at the start of the book, leaving me to believe there must be a book before this one that I missed. Either way, once you get used to the different races, it’s pretty easy to follow.
Of course, breaking the bond is not as simple as Nessa believed. While juggling research into bonding, the two of them are fighting off assassins, a court trial, romantic advances, and (most of all) their feelings for one another. This was an adorable and awesome YA paranormal romance with everything you’d want to see – action, romance, mystery, and a truly unique world. We even get a wonderful HEA for Devin and Nessa. I would love to see what happens next in this fabulous world!
