3.0 out of 5 stars Valens Rise 2 Sept. 2013
By Pure Jonel - Published on
Although on the surface this is just another in a long line of supernatural novels, it is extremely unique in its premise and very intellectually stimulating in its background. Lee catches you attention right from the first sentence with this unique novel that combines mythology with the supernatural into a super-myth. Lee works bits and pieces of background and historical information sporadically into the storyline so as not to slow down the plot of the story.

The characters in this novel have a very different outlook on life than most of us have, yet the way that they are presented makes it easy to identify with them. I found myself stuck in the main character's head, following her thoughts and emotions. I learned about this intriguing world right alongside her. It's a very intriguing way to learn about such a mythically charged world.

Overall, this novel was quite enjoyable but difficult to completely immerse myself in at the beginning. Throughout my journey with these characters I went from a spectator in this world to someone who walked alongside the characters. It was a great introduction into the series giving you the information and backdrop necessary for future instalments.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book. 9 Jun. 2013
By Denise Z - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this book. There is tons of action, awesome bad guys and nut-bunnies, and good guys that make you want to enlist for their team. Jemma is an orphan who was raised in foster homes and exposed to horrible abuse. She runs away time and again and ultimately ends up in the clutches of a group who rescue her from the streets and give her a place to be needed. However, the damage is done and it is unlikely to Jemma that she will ever trust anyone. She is notified that she has inherited a security business and considerable wealth from a sister she has no memory of and now the intrigue begins. Who can she trust? Will she be strong enough to handle her new responsibilities? Will she find a new family to help her understand and live with who she really is? I definitely recommend this read for those interested in a new fantastical world with beings of legend whose existence goes unseen by everyday folks and like some good get down and dirty action, betrayal, and love.

I received this book from the author with a request for my honest review without any compensation whatsoever, other than the joy of reading a new book.

Valens Rise Book1(The Valens of Legacy) by Sherrel Lee

This book took me by surprise. It was one of my first forays into the world of self published novels. The main character was someone who I found so engaging I could relate to her immediately. And the story is peopled with a magnificent supporting cast. Bravo on a first novel. Looking forward to the next.

Jemma Nix -an orphan- discovers that she had a sister, Larinda, who has died and left her an inheritance. She has mixed emotions wondering if she should be excited to finally reconnect with her family or be angry that she's lost the real connection now that Larinda is dead.

She gets the message while she's at the place she's volunteered to help in the study of Precognition. She has to ask Dr. Horace Gruen, if she can take the day off. He's not happy since Jemma Is the only person they have to help find legitimate candidates for their tests. Dr. Gruen's assistant Astrid Van Horn had saved Jemma from the seeming endless string of foster homes and given her this opportunity; so Jemma feels guilty about leaving but this is important if it's true.

Jemma meets with the lawyer Jonathan Grey. Though it takes a while for things to sink in; Jemma begins to see undeniable truth that she's the one and she's inherited the family business, Legacy. She agrees to go to the estate and at least give things a try. Grey schedules a meeting with a Griffin Hawke.

Jemma suffers strange muscle cramps that are later tied to her future but at the beginning she has no explanations. The increasing episodes are not making any of the upcoming stress any easier to handle. The story moves a bit slow at the beginning as the reader is introduced into the perceived life of Jemma and her sister Larinda with Griffin Hawke as the guide to Larinda's life.

The reader finds out in a hurry that there's a lot more to Jemma in what and who she is, but for her there are many steps that must take place for her to be ready to fully realize this. Because of her troubled life it takes Jemma a while to warm up to the people of Legacy, but she'll need to do so quickly because the people she's trusted have been taking advantage of her.

When she learns that she's a Valen and that the Legacy needs her, that's when the training begins. The first thing she needs to do though is to learn to trust herself to rise to the occasion.

There are elements to the style of writing in this book that are sometimes a bit loose sometimes unorthodox, but the overall story tracks well and follows a progression that leads to the place where things start to really move as the pace picks.

Jemma will rightfully go through a phase where she isn't sure who to trust both because of her past and the fact that the people of Legacy are often treating her with kid gloves.

This book the first book spends some time building the world that Jemma lives in. A world of changelings mystical Manticores and Griffins and Phoenix. Add in a few mad scientists abominations. Even though Jemma is one of them she's unsure she is up to the task ahead.

This is a good Sci-Fi Fantasy with some neat ideas about the various creatures that live in this world. It brings some myths to life in our time.

Great new characters, a step away from the norm of fantasy, and a fast pace stroy hook you from the beginning. You can't help but cheer for Jemma as she grows as a force in the world of Valens! A must read for anyone looking for a change of pace from ordinary fantasy and fiction.
