Recently we met Stephen and shared his views on his heroine Rayden Valkyrie. This girl has a huge reputation as a warrior with the heart of a lion and the moral compass that keeps her busy getting rid of the wicked and corrupt. Let’s learn more about her and I will share my thoughts on the book Heart of a Lion.

My Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥
Heart of a Lion is a powerful fantasy story that has a lot of heart of its own. The characters are really well written with strength and courage that is totally befitting the name. Rayden Valkyrie is such a lovely and intelligent woman with a code of honor. She is led to a life of wiping out corruption and she does a great job with her calling.
I found the story to be really well told. The characters are bursting with life. You see her from an Avengers point of view and it is powerful to read. The way that Stephen brings her to life, is a beautiful process. I can see why this is being turned into a tv series.
The book follows Rayden as she sets out to take care of the wrongs in her land. Thoughtfully written and Stephen makes you fall in love with her sense of right and her character. She has strength but she is not one of those mindless hulks that are all brawn and no spirit. She is a very well rounded heroine.
You will enjoy this book if you like to find the heart of the character as well as the action and adventure in a well-crafted land.
Where to find Heart of a Lion: This Fantasy and adventure novel is available at Amazon.
