Review: The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

4/5 Stars

So I’d first like to mention that when I decided to read this book, I was just finishing my play-through of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. I had spent nearly 80 hours gallivanting through Ancient Greece as the passionate, wickedly strong Kassandra. I was riding high on the tide of female warrior women.

Now, this book is far from the keen blade I wanted it to be. It’s very YA, very modern for its setting, and the narrative is not that complex. However, it was a pleasant read, done well enough that I’m looking forward to the other books in the trilogy.

I tore through it fairly quickly – again because I was very much enamored of the character type and the setting (although Valiant is set in Rome, not Greece) – and released a happy little sigh of satisfaction after I turned the last page. So it deserves a solid 4-star rating.

If you’re looking for a fun read that is quick, simple, and curiously intriguing, give this book a try.

When Abrianna's not writing, she is reading or riding horses...or playing a video game that probably takes up way too much of her time.
