The Rise of House Valdis (House Valdis Book 1) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Nicky Margaret

The Rise of House Valdis (House Valdis #1)The Rise of House Valdis by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

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.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy book 3) by May O’Malley is a 5 star read.
Naomi is now happily married to Bryce and living with him and his daughter Holly, she still has her connection to the spirits so when Holly mentions an imaginary friend called Lillie it reminds Naomi of the angry spirit of a little girl she knew as a child, when it begins to look like it’s the same child Naomi knows she must figure out what this ghost wants before it costs her more than she’s willing to lose.
It’s been a few years since I read the first 2 books in this trilogy and I’m really glad I took the time to finally finish it, the author is a great storyteller, her characters are well thought out and really kept my attention on the pages in front of me.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Game of Fear: The fearless series by Glede Browne Kabongo is a 5 star read.
Abbie Cooper is a high school senior, she has big plans for her future until a note in her textbook from someone calling themselves “The Avenger” saying they know what she did brings back painful memories of 3 years previous when her mother was in jail waiting to be tried for murder and Abbie did something stupid that she fears is now coming back to haunt her. Abbie thinks she knows who the blackmailer is but finding the evidence is hard. I must admit I figured out pretty quickly who the blackmailer was but it in no way took any enjoyment I got from reading this book. This is the first in a series about Abbie at different points in her life, this author has created an amazing story with characters who keep you hooked. I would highly recommend this book.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Goddess of the Wild Thing: A Dynamic Spiritual Journey by Paul DeBlassie is a 3 star read.
This story was like nothing I’d ever read before, I will admit a lot of the story went over my head and I had to re-read some of it a few times for it to make sense and even then I only got about half of it. This author has a unique style of writing that will appeal to many readers unfortunately I wasn’t one of them. I would encourage people to try this book for themselves as this in only my opinion.
