Description from the publisher:

Resurrection's a bitch.
Valkyrie, Book 1

For Valerie Falkyr, "Who am I?" isn't the only unanswered question. It's where she was before she woke up four years ago. All she knows is she has one best friend. And Payton, the doctor she trusts with the shreds of her life. Just as her relationship with Payton starts to heat up and Valerie begins to reach out for something like a normal life, a series of bizarre and unexplainable events begin pummeling her from all sides. Leaving her with a new question to add to the list: "What am I?"

Magical abilities she didn't know she possessed are emerging. And dreams of a former life she doesn't want to remember leave her in a cold sweat. As darkness descends and old enemies resurface, Valerie finds herself caught in a dark, bloodthirsty world with no way out. Her only defense--Lucha, Gregory, and Kerr, three not-quite-human lovers from her inked-out past. The only question left is whether she will survive long enough to remember which one loved her most...

This novel contains adult content and is intended for mature audiences only. Must be 18 years or older to read.

Warning: Contains temperamental female who can and will toss magik at anyone who ticks her off, hot hunky immortal men who have a history of heating up the sheets with her, and some kick ass fight scenes.


This is the first book in the Valkyrie series.  They will need to be read in order.

Think you know everything there is to know about vampires?  Set that aside.  This is a unique trip into a new world.  Honestly, I loved every character in this story.  There are some that there is no doubt that they are the bad guys and some that are unquestionably the good guys, but most are somewhere in the gray area in-between and how deliciously fun that is!

Great story, great characters.  I took one star off because there was some plot discontinuity that interrupted the flow for me, but I will speak to the author when she has some time to visit and point those out to her (and/or have her explain what I missed – LOL).  Don’t let that keep you from picking up this book and enjoying it.  Trust me, they were minor points of discontinuity, just had me shaking my head and then moved on.  They were not integral to the story.

As always, Mandy Roth delivers a story that you will surprise and delight with plenty of snark, humor, and steamy love scenes. 

Grammar/editing:  A – near perfect
