    Yes folks, I have returned to the science fiction once again. This time we are staying on Earth and battling the invading aliens, woohoo! Valiant by Merrie Destefano is a young adult romantic science fiction fantasy read that is extremely fast paced and action packed. In the very ne...

    Imagine your stuck on a time loop. You have one goal, to stop your brother from dying but if you knew what was going to happen would you also try and save a few others? Sara is given the chance to change history. She is visited by an alien who is again the invasion on Earth. He tells h...

    3.5 stars Agh I'm so not sure about my rating for this book! Because on the one hand, the sci-fi aspect, the writing and the overall atmosphere were magnificent. I loved how we got to experience time travel, aliens and new technology in a distopian sociaty. It truly was incredibl...

    Full Review on my blog! 3.5 - 4 Stars *a copy was provided by NetGalley* Sci-fi, aliens, time travel, and futuristic things. Yes, YES, and YEsss. All things I love. But this,I liked it just enough, that it fell short of great. Valiant is different and unique in its own way...

    The Valiant was supposed to save the humans on earth, but instead, it brought about death and destruction in the form of an alien invasion. In Destefano?s version of near-future earth, humanity is on the brink of collapse thanks to various circumstances. Everyone has invested in Vali...

    Well that was unexpectedly fabulous! I think the only thing that would have made this better for me would have been if Justin had been Sara's older brother instead of a love interest. I think it would have given all the right loyalty and love needed for the group without feeling rus...

    I don?t think I?ve ever wanted the next book in the series more than at the ending of Valiant! The Valiant has taken off and - uh - the aliens have invaded. Much like the Apollo missions, the Valiant was intended to bring people together but all that was thwarted when silver-tur...

    You can bet I pre-ordered this book after seeing the cover and reading the blurb. Then I was offered an Advance Reader Copy, and I just couldn't say no to the chance to read it early. The book begins with a prologue to explain the situation and what is at stake: After the launch of ...

    Quite honestly, VALIANT is one of the most intriguing and fast-paced science fiction books I have read in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I have read books that have had me feeling like I was a part of that world but VALIANT had a different feel. From page one VALIANT takes off and do...

    Do you know what Valiant would be great as? A DCOM. But not the current ones. I mean like back when they made movies such as Zenon, Stepsister From Planet Weird, and Jett Jackson. Valiant was an okay read. I felt it lacked in world building. While the story felt futuristic, I didn'...

    Fast read, science-fiction/mystery/thriller. This was a good one if you enjoy adventure. I am a fan of Destefano and was happy to read this arc. Good action but would have liked a little more romance. Will be the kind of book my students who enjoy a science fiction read will enjoy. Tha...

    I started reading this book knowing it was a stand-alone story. Unfortunately, it seems to have a sequel. Or i must say, it SHOULD have a sequel... Because if there's none, i'd be totally pissed! Love the characters, the plot (with a twist), the love between Sara and Justin, and eve...

    I really enjoyed the sci-fi of this one. Romance was very slight. Lots of action. Open ended for next book. Sara was a great main character. Not too perfect and not whiny. Some twists in this one. Can't wait for next book. ...

    Do you know what Valiant would be great as? A DCOM. But not the current ones. I mean like back when they made movies such as Zenon, Stepsister From Planet Weird, and Jett Jackson. Valiant was an okay read. I felt it lacked in world building. While the story felt futuristic, I didn'...

    Fast read, science-fiction/mystery/thriller. This was a good one if you enjoy adventure. I am a fan of Destefano and was happy to read this arc. Good action but would have liked a little more romance. Will be the kind of book my students who enjoy a science fiction read will enjoy. Tha...

    I really enjoyed the sci-fi of this one. Romance was very slight. Lots of action. Open ended for next book. Sara was a great main character. Not too perfect and not whiny. Some twists in this one. Can't wait for next book. ...

    Do you know what Valiant would be great as? A DCOM. But not the current ones. I mean like back when they made movies such as Zenon, Stepsister From Planet Weird, and Jett Jackson. Valiant was an okay read. I felt it lacked in world building. While the story felt futuristic, I didn'...

    Fast read, science-fiction/mystery/thriller. This was a good one if you enjoy adventure. I am a fan of Destefano and was happy to read this arc. Good action but would have liked a little more romance. Will be the kind of book my students who enjoy a science fiction read will enjoy. Tha...

    I really enjoyed the sci-fi of this one. Romance was very slight. Lots of action. Open ended for next book. Sara was a great main character. Not too perfect and not whiny. Some twists in this one. Can't wait for next book. ...

    Loved this edge-of-your seat and end-of-the world adventure! With romance, aliens, and high-intensity battles, this sci-fi story delivers a punch. ...

    VALIANT is impossible to put down! This book takes you by the hand and pulls you into an action-packed adventure filled with intriguing characters, fantastic world-building, and one of the most unique species of aliens that I?ve ever read. With its high tension and non-stop action, t...
