Book Review: Vala: Agendas

                   Today's review is on Vala:  Agendas   by J.F. Jenkins

Vala Agendas was a delightful book to read, if at times a little bit slow.  It was easy to fall in love with the characters and the story line; which is based on a unique myth.  In fact, the school where the main and supportive character's attend works to clarify the myths from the facts of their supernatural students.

Cheyenne Loveless is out one night when she is approached by a handsome boy with emerald, green eyes.  She is instantly attracted to Denver Collins hoping that he will kiss her, but instead finds that he has bitten her.  Now her life is turned upside down.

The mother that she has known and loved for 16 years is not really her mother at all.  There are two strangers in her home; a witch and a Fallen Angel,  and she must go with them to a new school to be kept safe.  And, she's not even human.  She is the daughter of the Divine and a Nymph.

At her new school she is surprised that she is able to make friends with fellow students Anj and Zes; the gorgeous and popular twins, along with her roommate Halyn.  What's more surprising however is that Denver Collins is also a student there.

Trying to have a relationship with Zes, keeping her attraction in check around Denver, and keeping up with her grades is hard enough, but she also has to by wary of Lucian; the evil demon set on having her as his mate in accordance to some very old contract no one has actual proof of.

It's difficult to see where the story will lead, though I'm sure that Denver will be ever present in Cheyenne's life, (and hopeful that they get together).   There haven't been any real back stabbing yet in the book, but I do not totally trust everyone either.   However the story plays out, I will be more than happy to find out.
