Welcome to Misty’s review!
I was very excited about the opportunity given to me by Felicity Heaton to review her new book, Valen. I have read her books in the past and enjoyed them a lot.
The Guardian of Hades series is just one of many great book series she has written. She currently has ten series listed on Goodreads.
Blurb for VALEN
Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Lightning, Valen was banished from his home by his father, Hades, two centuries ago and given a new duty and purpose—to keep our world and his from colliding in a calamity foreseen by the Moirai.
Together with his six brothers, he fights to defend the gates to the Underworld from daemons bent on breaching them and gaining entrance to that forbidden land, striving to protect his home from their dark influence. Cursed by Zeus to never know love again, Valen has brought up barriers around his heart to protect it, but with each new barrier he creates, the dark hold his power has over him grows, becoming all he needs.
Until the night he finally crosses paths with the assassin who has been watching him from the shadows, a bewitching mortal possessing the name of an angel and the skills of a devil—a woman who awakens his passionate heart and stirs dangerous desires.
Eva has built a fearsome reputation for herself in Italy’s underworld, but her latest job in her beloved city of Rome has left her feeling that she has stepped into a dangerous world and this mission might end in her death—either at the hands of her mysteriously seductive client or by the blade of the wickedly alluring warrior who is her target.
As the threat from the daemons escalates and more than just the Rome gate becomes their target, will Valen be strong enough to face the fears in his heart and the ghosts of his past to claim everything he desires or will they lure him deeper under their spell and into the darkness?
Misty’s Review of VALEN
Valen is book 2 in the Guardians of Hades series. This was an excellent addition to the series. I was captivated to every page. Felicity Heaton is an excellent storyteller and with every book I have read of hers I can see the story play out in my mind like a movie.
Valen is the story of Valen and Eva. Valen is one of Hades sons and the Guardian of one of the gates between Hades and our world. Eva is an assassin who was hired to take Valen. Eva has been watching Valen from the shadows, but what she doesn’t know is that Valen has known the whole time that she is there.
After Valen finally meets Eva to find out how hired her to follow him around. After the meeting Eva is now a target of the daemons and her client wants to use her to get Valen. Eva and Valen both built barriers around their hearts, but the more time they spend together the barriers start to break down.
To find out what happens go grab your copy of Valen.
I give Valen 5 stars and recommend this series to anyone who loves paranormal romances with Greek mythology mixed in.
Felicity Heaton knows how to mix action, suspense and romance perfectly. She is one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait for the next installment of the Guardians of Hades….
