Valley of Dust by Karoleen Vry Brucks

Goodreads description:

Even as a little girl, Selene had always been adventurous, climbing trees and finding new adventures in every nook and cranny. She was never accepted by either gender—all children thought she was too outspoken and strange. Little did she know how different she truly was until an encounter with a mysterious stranger changes her life forever. Readers can witness the intriguing events unfold in Valley of Dust, a novel by Karoleen Vry Brucks.

From the moment that Lucian saw Selene, he knew she was special and that she was his destiny. He sent his brother, Anton, out to watch over her and protect her while she was still unaware of her true nature. Lucian, however, didn’t foresee that Anton and Selene would be mutually attracted to each other. Will Selene come between the two brothers? How will she handle the truth about what she is and the power that courses through her veins? Readers can unravel the exciting answers as they explore the Valley of Dust.

Mary's Review:

I was contacted by the author to read and review this book.  It sounded good and I want to thank Karoleen for the copy of this book.

Best part of the book:  Talk about a LOVE TRIANGLE! The blurb does it no justice! Y'all know that I love a good Love Triangle and this one is good!  I am totally #TeamLucian !! I liked him from the start.  Now, I am going to have to be careful about this review a bit because the book is jam-packed full of information and I don't want to spoil anything.  However, this is a quite different story.  I loved Selene from the moment I heard her backstory! Karoleen wrote a wonderful character.  There is a lot of good in Selene, she was strong (even with all that she went through), and she was a great character to read!

Now, I am not going to go into a lot about Lucian and Anton (don't wanna spoil it) BUT they are brothers, they are supernatural and they are awesome! Even though there is good and bad in them I liked reading them! I mainly loved how Lucian stood by Selene, even after that happened!

Not so great about the book: It seemed a little rushed towards the end and a little bit confusing.  However, that is the supernatural world, it can be confusing at times! It took me rereading a few parts to figure out if certain people were alive/dead or just a dream.

Overall, I liked the book and would read more work from Karoleen!
