The rise of house Valdis by Naomi Valkyrie
“When Xenobia arrived on Earth seven years ago she was given an opportunity to start over.”

What a great book! I couldn’t stop reding Xenobia is such a strong character. Mrs. Valkyrie does a wonderful job of making you feel like you’re there with the characters as the story unfolds. Her style of writing and word choices make it so you have the image in your mind as you read each page excited to see what happens next. I never pictured myself reading this style of book but boy was I wrong! I’ll be looking for more of Mrs. Valkyrie’s work to read.

by Naomi Valkyrie

As soon as I started reading this story I couldn’t put it down. I was intrigued from the start. I needed to see where Xenobia’s choices in taking care of her best friend Maggie and the other women in her houses going to take her and the women. Xenobia has left her past in hopes of a new beginning and has found herself in a whole different situation that she wasn’t expecting. There are also many other wonderful and interesting characters in this story that you will love to meet. This book is written in multiple perspectives and I found that to be quite enjoyable. This story is full of twists and turns, originality, action, emotion, supernatural, and so much more. I loved reading this book and can’t wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this book.

The Rise Of House Valdis is the first book in the House Valdis Series by Naomi Valkyrie. It is a truly amazing debut story, and I believe it will be the first of many great reads. This Sci-Fi Romance is full of interesting characters and the plot line had me hooked from the beginning. Xenobia is a strong female dealing with a whole new world. The story was fast paced and with great descriptions. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this new adventure.

The cover of this book first drew me in. Finding out that it is a paranormal fantasy was a plus because that’s my favourite genre. It has werewolves, vampires and weirdly, aliens, which usually fall under sci-fi. I decided to give it a try and see where it goes. The story has action, love and lots of drama. It shows that this is the author’s debut novel. I feel that in the beginning of the book, the author was unsure in which direction she wanted the story to head in. As you are reading, you feel her get her bearings and the story takes off.

The book is written in multiple points of views which I don’t mind because it allows you to better understand the story as a whole. Unfortunately, the author used too many in this instance. I feel two points would have been enough. I loved how protective Xenobia was over the women that she took into her home. Although Xen has been through a lot herself, it only made her stronger and more understanding. I would have preferred a stronger male lead. This one was confused most of the time, flip flopping between two people.

Overall the story was original and kept me interested. I believe this book has the potential to turn into a very exciting series. I think Ms. Valkyrie did a wonderful job writing her first novel and she’ll only get better. Looking forward to seeing what else she has in store for us.

The Rise of House of Valdis by Naomi Valkyrie a five-star read that will rise above. This is the first novel in the House of Valdis series, and I can’t wait for more. This was a great story and so well written that I was surprised to discover that it was a debut novel. The story unfolds and is told from multiple points of view and this is great as it gives you a greater background to the story, a greater perspective to get more of the story. There are a couple of small parts that I was a little lost at, but when I realised it was a debut that made it clear then how this was, I just re-read a couple of paragraphs and it made more sense. The characters are unique and interesting and they have a great depth to them, I am so excited to get my hands on number two.

What I love about books the most is the characters and the journey they take in the story. In this story, Xen is a strong woman that I enjoyed reading about. Her journey in this book kept the story interesting and flowing pretty well. This is told from several different characters pov so you need to check out to see whose pov each chapter is written. This is the author’s first book, and I felt that she did well. I am interested in what she puts out in the future.

The Rise of House Valdis is the first novel in the House Valdis series by Naomi Valkyrie.

I went into the novel knowing nothing about the story. The cover caught my attention and I thought it was time to give something different a chance. I’m glad I did.

It’s been seven years since Xenobia arrived on Earth looking for a fresh start. Her best friend Maggie is the only one who knows her secret.

She runs her company helping young girls out of situations. When she agrees to help a man out with his daughter, it unravels a chain of events that may cause Xenobia to reveal her true identity.

I was so blown away by how engrossed I was by this story and learning more about Xenobia. I love Xenobia’s character and how she was protecting her girls.

I don’t want to give anything away but I do look forward to the next novel.

The Rise of House Valdis: House of Valdis book 1 by Naomi Valkyrie is a 3 star read.
Xenobia is from another planet and has spent the last seven years on earth protecting women who are in the sex trade, women she rescued from a man named Javier. The only person who knows who she really is is her best friend Maggie. A man comes to her telling her that Javier wants the girls back and shows that he will do anything to get them back, this puts Xenobia in a tough spot that she needs to put more of herself out there and trust more people with who she really is.
Reading the blurb of this book had me thinking the book was going to be different to what it is, the story flowed in parts but it would then give some of the story from multiple points of view and I felt that I was going backwards instead of forwards, I did enjoy some of this book but it jumped around and I felt that parts of the story that needed to be told were missing, this is all my own opinion and I would suggest reading for yourself and making your own mind up.

Whilst following xenophobia journey
Very good descriptions of places drawing you into this world you are kept on the edge of your seat. This book is told from multi POV which is done over different chapters and is easy to follow. This is a very unique debut novel its witty, breathe taking, supernatural and romance elements also occur. What a brilliant debut novel for Naomi Valkyrie I can’t wait to see the rest of this series progess.
