Overview

Cheyenne Loveless was just a boring sixteen-year-old girl. Then Denver Collins bit her and everything changed. Her plants start talking to her, she finds out she’s a Nymph, and a witch and the angel of death show up at her doorstep to take her away to the prestigious Vala School and Seminary. Oh, and she has no choice in the matter.

All she wants to do is blend in and return to being invisible, but the more time that passes, the harder that becomes. Plus she’s a daughter of the Divine, an exclusive secret society which rules the world of myth, and discovers she is a key ingredient to an ancient covenant created before she was born. A covenant that will reshape the order of the world.

Adjusting to a new school is difficult enough, but adding on everyone else’s hidden agendas is the icing on the cake. Cheyenne must learn to see through the lies in order to find her place — and possibly even love — in this new world.

    more from this reviewer

    Intriguing but...

    Vala: Agendas was written in quite impressive depth and stunning details which captured my imagination. At some point, I thought I was reading a much mystical version of X:Men, but without much action and suspense. The story itself mostly revolved around Cheyenne’s conflicting relationship with the boys around her. One minute she likes this guy, the next she likes the other which was rather irritating. But Cheyenne was likable and I could relate to her every emotion in some way or the other. So I’m guessing at the end this saga, there would be betrayal, heartbreak and hopefully a happy-ending for Cheyenne. All in all, what J.F Jenkins brought to the table with Vala: Agendas isn’t enough to blow me away. The book isn’t bad either, but some parts just didn’t appeal to me.

    Liked it but

    I really liked it but it is left unfinished. I wanted to read the next book thinking its a trilogy. However the next two books appear to be about the other caracters. I can only hope that Cheyennes story continues and we arent left hanging.

    Intrigue, betrayal and romance

    I was a little apprehensive about reading Agendas, a book about a girl who talks to flowers? But I was pleasantly surprised when I started reading and fell in love with the characters!
    Agendas reminds me of every good thing in the House Of Night Series; which I love. Right from the start you are given intrigue, betrayal and romance. Agendas isn't simply about a girl who talks to flowers, it's about a girl who is thrust into a society of the gods. I don't trust Halyn, I', half in love with Denver, Zes is to good to be true, Jewel is the frienemy, Anj is a mystery and Lucien makes my skin crawl! Cheyenne's character is very well developed and lovable (which is so much better than likable) I can't wait for the next Vala book and the continuation of Cheyenne's story. My only complaint about Agendas is that Cheyenne is so unforgiving of her foster mother, who has done nothing but love and protect her; yet she is unconditionally forgiving of her birth parents who basically abandoned her to the human race for her 'protection'. Even with this complaint (which is strictly personal) I adored Agendas, the first installment of the Vala Series and Cheyenne's story, WELL DONE J.F. Jenkins!

    F

    A small elvish woman limped in, bleeding from a terrible wound across her chest. Despite the cuts and scratches on her face, she was beautiful, with hair black as a raven's wing and eyes of gold fire. A gleaming sword was clasped in one hand, the other limp and broken. She wore no armor, only a tight, black leather corset-like shirt and a pair of matching pants. Though her weaponry was fine, she was injured badly. The slash across her chest and the broken arm, but also burns and what appeared to be whip-lashings down her back. There were so many that her skin was hanging on in thin shreds.

    A great start for a new author

    I think there were some minor plot issues in this book but over all, for a new author, this was a great book. A young girl is bitten, not involuntarily, by a boy outside a club and her life is never the same. She finds out that the world is so much bigger than she ever imagined and she is much more than she thought.

    I was a bit disappointed in the ending and I wish all the loose ends and questions had been handled, but I suspect there is a sequel out there somewhere.

    Highly Recommend this book!

    I loved this story about Cheyenne's journey to discover who she is and where she comes from. The people she encounters at Vala are such interesting characters with unusual powers. I can't wait for the next book to see what happens next!
