Behind Blue Eyes
Behind Blue Eyes #1
By- D.M. Wolfenden
Cain was born in England in 1917. At the end of WWII Cain returned to England, longing for the comforts of home, but found his mother was different; she had been changed by a vampire who preys on women.
There came a point where his mother felt there was no choice…Cain had to be turned as well.
After watching his mother die he changed his way of thinking, his way of feeding. He tried to reclaim some of his humanity but it was not easy as he was fueled by rage against the one that had changed her. He wanted his revenge and nothing would stop him.
After he was attacked he comes across a young girl, ten year old Mia, whose innocence is slowly being taken away from her. They needed each other, and both their lives depended on it.
The world was a very bad place for Mia. She was about to find out just how much worse it can get.
Despite having a slight issue with the first of the book, I settled in after a while and started enjoying the story that was unfolding. Mia and Cain are wonderful characters that rapidly earned a spot in my heart. Despite Cain’s being a vampire he is such a good soul, protecting Mia seems to be his life work. Somehow you do root for Cain and Mia to be together and then realize that it isn’t really the best idea. Detesting Vasile is super simple, he has absolutely no redeeming qualities and is indeed the nightmare we fear from vampires. Altogether a very good vampire story.
My issue with the first of the book was that it seemed to drag a bit more than I liked. I am never one to stop reading, I knew there was a good story in there, simply because Vasile was such a horror. He is simply the vampire we fear as a child and delight in reading about as an adult. I found the story to be unpredictable to me, I simply did not always see what was coming next. At times though I wanted to cover my eyes because you just knew it wasn’t going to be good. I want to thank D.M. Wolfenden for making her book available to me to read and review, I look forward to reading whatever she writes next. I give Behind Blue Eyes four stars.
