Valiant A Tale of the Ages.

  • Jul 26, 2010


One of my reactions to this book was that i connected so well to the main character. She was so normal to me and yet had an epic adventure.
I would recommend this book to all of my girlfriends because this is such a romantic and fantastical book.
The setting in the city is very appropriate to what's going on with the main character.
The story itself is awesome. There are so many twists and turns that happen to val on her journey to escape her normal life.
I love how Val becomes such a different person in the end after all that she had to go through.
The message of this story is that growing up can be  hard and that things can change in your life all on one simple decision.
This book is so addictive to me. I can read this  whole series multiple times and still go back for more unlike some other books I've read where up read it once and put it down.
I don't think that this book should ever be made into a movie because it would ruin the story. This is one precious book that should never be changed or lost.
I love Holly Black's writing. She paints a picture that leaves your real world just a little less bright in the end.

We got all new characters within the same world and Kaye and Roiben weren't reintroduced until late in the book, and dismissed just as quickly. That said, I did love this new story in that world.    While I did enjoy some of the new characters, most of the misfits were just scummy. I didn't understand why they would choose to live in an abandoned train station if taking Never made it so easy …

Once upon a time, though not so long ago, there lived a teenager named Valerie. Valerie lived with her mother in a single parent family relationship, played lacrosse in school, and was best friends with a girl who preferred girls as friends. Valerie had a foul mouth and a temper to match, and had a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate both of these when she caught her boyfriend cheating on her.     Being in possession of tickets to a hockey game at Madison Square Garden, Valerie …
