Vala: Heritage by J.F. Jenkins

Jewl Dite has always struggled with her heritage. Being the daughter of the goddess of love, she questions everything about the emotion. Which is a bummer because she's head over heels for Anj Willam, and thinks the feelings are mutual. It's hard to be sure though when she has magic that has been known to bewitch men into devoting themselves to her. Somehow they're able to strike a balance in their dysfunctional on-again, off-again relationship however.

This balance is disrupted however when a strange boy named Teague enters her life and brings along with him a group of demons. Demons who want to make a deal with her in exchange for the safety of everyone she loves.

Now to protect those she holds most dear, Jewl must rely on the magic she's been trying so desperately to avoid. But at what cost? Will the boy she loves accept this dark secret, or will she lose him forever

Like J.F. Jenkin's first book of the series, the ending just kind of snuck up on me. Mind you it was not a dramatic cliff hanger that left me tearing my hair out in frustration but it was because I became so involved with the story and it became so addicting that when I came to the last page I had to blink a couple of times when I was forced back into reality.

I won't lie, I was a little disappointed that it didn't pick up with Zes and Chey and instead went into the direction of Jewel's story, but it was still a highly anticipated read that didn't disappoint. It took me a moment of thinking back to actually recall Jewell, she wasn't my favorite character in the series but it was refreshing to see what made the ice queen and heir to Aphrodite's legacy tick.

I felt a little bad for the girl, seeing all the thing's she had to go through and why she acts like she doesn't have any feeling's.

And there is a twist on the end which you will all love but alas I cannot reveal it for what fun would that be?

5 Raven's!
