Valens Revenge (The Valens of Legacy, #3) by Sherrel Lee
Yet I love the first book because the characters seemed to have more heart. Or at least Jemma's character had more heart. In the first novel we saw Jemma slowly building up to the realization that she had a larger portion in life than she'd been giving herself and I suppose I was hoping that that new life was going to include Hawke.
It really does include Hawke but not as closely as I was hoping. This book seems to be more a story centered around Declan and his anguish over having lost Miranda in such a violent way. His anger and vengeance toward Grant who taunts him with the knowledge that as a Manticore he had killed Miranda by swallowing her whole. This story is also about Hawke and about Misty and their position in Jemma's organization. But I seems that since she has had to take the helm, that fact hamstrings her characters involvement in the real action in this novel. It's all understandable, though.
Riding herd over the Valens and other associates while trying to wage war on Gruen, Astrid and Grant is taking all of Jemma's time and energy. That doesn't include the worry and decision she must face about the Humani abominations that Gruen is making using the blood of Valens who are unaware of what they are.
The stakes are getting higher and the Humani are becoming more intelligent and dangerous. Jemma is proving to become a fast learning leader. One thing in this type of fiction is that the higher the rank the protagonist gets the less effective or exciting they become as a tool drive the plot. Everyone wants to keep the Generals protected and away from the fighting.
Jemma will fight this but in this story she mostly shows up as the leader while those around her are thrust into the fray of the action.
I love how this story examines the inner workings of the evil Cerberus organization. The infighting and the revelations that come out regarding the real pecking order. There's lots of reveal in this novel and the novel is well paced. I read this at one sitting and I'm enthusiastically waiting for the next book. Hats off to a job well done, Sherrel Lee, in making the transition from Jemma Nix the orphan to Jemma Nix the leader and keeping the story interesting and exciting.
I can't imagine where things will lead to next. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes Paranormal and Mythical adventures and even Sci-Fi. Probably not so much recommendation for those who need there SF to be hard as in well explained. Aug 23, Cindy rated it really liked it. I was given the book by LoP in exchange for an honest review. In this story Jemma is adjusting to her new life, her legacy and begins to become a true leader.
Jemma , Hawke and the rest of her team from Legacy are again facing unknown danger. Jemma is taking the leader role so she is less involved in the battles. Which I hope would not happen. I also hope her and Hawke would be closer in more than a work relationship.
This story involves Declan , Hawke and Misty. With Delcon it is his dealing wit I was given the book by LoP in exchange for an honest review. With Delcon it is his dealing with the loss of Miranda and the violent way she died and the vengeance this has caused. You also learn more about Cerberus. You learn like in any organization there is inner turmoil in the organization that needs to be resolved. The characters are more developed and this story like the others keeps you wanting more. I would recommend reading Valens Rise then Valens Remember.

This was a great story and would recommend. I give it 4 battle Angels Apr 05, Jonel Boyko rated it liked it. This story starts out very well. Lee gives all of the necessary background information and jogs your memory as to what happened in the first book of the series without rehashing the entire story. Also, the bioengineering behind this story is really scary. You can see the possibilities which makes it all the more real. By jumping between the perspectives of various different char This story starts out very well.
This instalment is a story that pulls you through the action with a great deal of dialogue. It by far outweighs the narrative. In this novel Lee reintroduces a great deal of the cast from the first instalment in the series with little further development as to their personas. They remain the same individuals with no miraculous personality change and it is very easy to see who they are from their actions in the previous book.
However, the relationship between the two main characters in the first instalment of the series seems to have all but disappeared in this novel with little to no explanation. It did leave me a bit perplexed. The new characters who are introduced in this novel are quite well developed and add a unique outlook on the events. Each and every character in this novel, be they old or new, is unique. And not just in name but in personality and characteristics as well.
I found that at times it was a bit slow but it was very informative and still quite enjoyable. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

As well as an aid to the memory of those who have read the initial books. The story arc changes in as much as Jemma is no longer part of the action. Instead as leader sh Lucee Love review Valens Revenge by Sherrel Lee Valens revenge begins with a brief background of the preceding books of the series to assist your enjoyment if by chance you are reading these books out of sequence. Instead as leader she now has to direct her comrades in their efforts to bring down the Cerberus. Equally what started out as a probable intense love match between Jemma and Hawke appears to have fizzled out. This novel is has hinted in the title is about revenge as Declan anguish over the loss of Miranda and the violent way she died and the vengeance its caused.
Grant bent on taunting Declan about the way in which he disposed of Miranda, only serves to stir things up within the Legacy. The intriguing way in which the story unfolds gives the reader a clear perspective of the story as a whole. In respect to the organisational conflicts as well as the workings of the evil Cerberus organisation that the Legacy is fighting against.

Mar 20, Denise rated it it was amazing. Valens Revenge begins a few months after the conclusion of Valens Rise. In this installment we see Jemma coming into her own and adjusting to her place in the hierarchy as owner of Legacy Security and asserting herself in effort to be a true leader.
In the search for and efforts to bring down Cerberus there are many confrontations resulting in heartache and anger, as well as surprises, and I will admit my emotions were all over the map. The Lake of Living Water. Haji's Fight For Freedom.
