Overview

A Valkyrie Novel.

For Valerie Falkyr, “Who am I?” isn’t the only unanswered question. It’s where she was before she woke up four years ago. All she knows is she has one best friend. And Payton, the doctor she trusts with the shreds of her life.

Just as her relationship with Payton starts to heat up and Valerie begins to reach out for something like a normal life, a series of bizarre and unexplainable events begins pummeling her from all sides. Leaving her with a new question to add to the list: “What am I?”

Magical abilities she didn’t know she possessed are emerging. And dreams of a former life she doesn’t want to remember leave her in a cold sweat.

As darkness descends and old enemies resurface, Valerie finds herself caught in a dark, bloodthirsty world with no way out. Her only defense—Lucha, Gregory and Kerr, three not-quite-human lovers from her inked-out past.

The only question left is whether she will survive long enough to remember which one loved her most…

    Hmmmm..... Where to start. Well first off, let me say how much I

    Hmmmm..... Where to start. Well first off, let me say how much I adore Mandy Roth, I think she is a phenomenal author and while I usually love her books (some more than others) The Valkyrie fell short for me. I'm not sure what it was exactly, the story moves quickly and there is a lot of action, but at times it was confusing. Maybe it was because Valerie had amnesia and didn't know what was going on which in turn means the reader was confused as well. The first two thirds of the book did keep me engaged though, yes I was confused, but I was desperate to learn more about Valerie and her past. But then the last part of the book is where I was left scratching my head, there was too many characters added, too much happening in a short amount of time, way too many men in love with her, and then an ending with no resolution. I do realize that this is the beginning of a series and I'm sure that the later books will wrap up all the loose ends and unanswered questions that the reader may have. And despite the fact that this book wasn't for me I will still continue to read and recommend Mandy's books.

    ..I’m also a hundred years dead.         I always wondered how Vampires kept track of their “ages”.  LOL  This book is absolutely wonderful!!!  I did not think it possible, but Mandy has managed to astound and amaze me yet AGAIN with another fantastic story that is equal parts unique, romantic, hot & awesome!!  This is the first book that I have read that has a Valkyrie in it, let alone as the main character, so I was going in with little to no expectations beyond the fact that I would enjoy it just because it is written by Mandy.  As expected, Mandy did NOT disappoint!  In fact, I don’t know if Mandy COULD disappoint me!  She hasn’t so far and I have read a LOT of her books!  This book has a darker subject & overall tone to it and reminds me of Mandy’s Daughter of Darkness trilogy, which is the first series that I read of hers and kicked off my full blown stalker love for her!  I love the sarcasm and snarky sense of humor in here.  So many awesome lines, but a couple of my favorites are – “Kill a vamp, gain a nod – score one for me.”  And then the classic -  “No pain.  I made a mental note to keep a bottle-of-Gregorios next to my bed at all times for pain relief.  He was cuter than a bottle of aspirin, that much was for sure.”  Mmmm, what I wouldn’t give for a bottle of that myself!  Of course having this humor is one of the things that has helped Valerie cope with her life.  Or what she KNOWS of her life that is.  I actually loved the concept of the storyline regardless of what “species” Valerie truly is and can’t wait to read more!  True to form, Mandy has written another compelling story that had me hooked from the start!  Of course having great depth to the characters and a great mystery with the guessing game of just who & what Val was before she woke up doesn’t hurt either!  Some of the things I look for before declaring a book a great book is if I can relate to the characters, feel what they are feeling and talk about them like they are my friends, and also get pulled into the world that it takes place in as well as wanting to keep reading and reading.  Not only does this book do that, but it also shows that Mandy has that special gift that only a few authors can successfully lay claim to.  As long as you like your books to be addictive, completely engrossing and leave you reaching for the next one, then this is the book for you!!!!

    more from this reviewer

    Five years following a horrific accident and Valerie still can't

    Five years following a horrific accident and Valerie still can't remember her prior life. She's reconciled herself to that and has moved on to building herself a new life with the help of her closest friends, Molly and Dr. Payton Sullivan; the nurse and doctor who were there for her during the long healing process after the accident. When a popular production company comes to town to film a movie, past meets present and everything she has known gets turned upside down.

    The play off the Valkyrie legend from Norse mythology was a fantastic storyline for me. I was pleasantly surprised by the way the author chose to spin it. It boggled my brain at first, because really, how does something like that happen to a Valkyrie of all deities? Ms. Roth did an excellent job of answering that question without requiring the reader to suspend all modicum of belief in spite of this being PNR. I enjoyed the way Valerie's Valkyrie attributes started to trickle back along with her memories and even her somewhat self-deprecating sense of humor. I did stumble a bit over Molly and Payton's parts in the story but, all in all, the end did justify the means. I'd like to think that it was part of the set-up, along with the introduction of a number of possible male leads, for a follow-on book. That would tickle me to no end!

    I would highly recommend that others read this book. It holds up well as a standalone but I'm sure that most readers would hope it's a long series.

    Wow! Action. Mystery. Hot guys. An ordinary woman with no mem

    Wow! Action. Mystery. Hot guys. An ordinary woman with no memory beyond five years--who slowly discovers she is far from ordinary.

    We all have a past. Valerie has a PAST! She survived mortal injuries waking with no memory other than her name. She has lived and built a life for herself that is shattered by the appearance of a horror film actor, Guytano. He plays dark vampire roles. He's so good because they are cameo rolls.

    Her relationship with the doctor who treated her and has loved her is interrupted by her attraction to Guytano. It is also the beginning of remembering and learning about her astonishing past. Two men aren't enough to distract her, three others show who insinuate a past relationship. As she learns what they meant to her, what she has done a battle begins. The enemy and friends seem indistinguishable.

    This is not light hearted as are many of Ms. Roth's books. Action packed, mysteries resolved only to add more mystery to Valerie’s life. This is book one and leaves us wanting more. Valery has loses and adds new friends, but her life is forever changed. Don't miss this one.

    I was provided an ARC for an honest review.
