Product Description

Strange and terrible things begin to happen to four teenagers - all born on the same Valentine's Day. One of these teenagers is the Valentine: a Seelie fairy changeling swapped for a human child at its birth. The Unseelie have come to kill the Valentine - except they don't know who it is.

Pearl shares a birthday with Finn Blacklin. She's known him all her life and disliked every second of it. Now Pearl and Finn must work together to protect themselves from the sinister forces that are seeking them out.

But there's one more problem: the explosive chemistry between them . . .

This review originally appeared on readinglark.blogspot.com

Four friends all born on the same day - Valentine's Day. Well, friends might be stretching it a bit for some of them. Pearl and Marie are friends, for sure. And Pearl is madly in love with Cardy. But she can't stand Finn Blacklin. So she's not at all pleased when it's announced that they're both school captains. But school politics and petty squabbles fade into insignificance when people start going missing.

One of these four teenagers isn't human. One is the Valentine, a fairy changeling swapped at birth with a human baby. And now the fairies want him or her back. With the Seelie and Unseelie Courts fighting to find the Valentine first, Pearl and Finn are forced to work together to save their friends, and themselves.

Oh, how I love this book. I loved Pearl's voice from the very beginning. She is witty and smart and full of asides, which I love. When on the second page there was mention of Fruity Lexia (for those who have never been an Australian teenager, this is a very sweet and cheap white wine usually sold in casks, or boxes) I knew Pearl and I were going to get along swimmingly.

And Finn - annoyingly handsome and arrogant, he is exactly what Pearl doesn't want. Although her subconscious seems to be telling her otherwise. The sexual tension between the two of them is delicious, and it's very much a case of wanting them to either kiss or kill each other at some points.

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, this isn't really a love story. It's a fantasy murder mystery with some sizzling chemistry thrown in.

Pearl lives with her older brother and sister who have taken care of her since her mother's death.

I found this to be a really good and gripping read that honestly had me creeped me out at times and purposely reading this during daylight hours. Valentine is about 4 teenagers who happened to have share the same birthday – they were born on Valentine’s Day. During their senior year, each of the four teens start to go missing one by one and evil cats are following the protagonist, Pearl Linford, everywhere she goes. However, in trying to work out what on earth is going on, she forms the most unlikely alliance and has confused feelings for someone she once called her nemesis – who is just as part of the saga and is also discovering himself. As the plot continues, so does Pearl’s investigation into the mysterious disappearances and her ally’s background which brings her to question the trust she once had with friends who appear to become the enemy.
The dialogue is quite funny and witty, though sometimes I felt like hitting Pearl to make her focus on the task at hand and not go on a tangent about irrelevant things lol it was a cool read and I would love to see a sequel to this!!!

Special thanks to Penguin Teen Publishers for sending me an Advanced Review Copy in exchange for my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paranormal Fantasy Romance that rocks! 5 March 2017
By Today We Did - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Four teenagers in the seaside town of Haylesford were all born on Valentine’s day of the same year. Pearl, Finn, Cardy and Marie have grown up together, but now they seem to be marked by the birthday they share. Who or what is after them? And why? Pearl is determined to find out what is really going on, but she might need a little help.

This book came in a book box from The YA Chronicles, and I knew nothing about it when I started to read. And wow! I probably wouldn’t have picked Valentine up myself, assuming that it was a romance novel, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is actually a paranormal fantasy with some romance. And it is really awesome to boot!

From the first chapter, I knew I was going to have trouble putting Valentine down. The plot was intricate, weaving itself into a fast paced ride of darkness and delight. Every chapter’s end had me saying “just one more chapter…” And there’s another book coming in this new series! Yay! There is a short preview at the end of Valentine, which will have to sustain me until Ironheart‘s release next year.

Valentine is not a fairytale, but it is a tale of faeries. Real faeries who are cruel and unforgiving, and zealously pursuing their task without thought to its effects on the humans. They are ruthless and powerful, with some pretty neat tricks up their sleeves. There were two groups after the Valentine babies, the Seelie and the Unseelie, and while one lot was evil, the others weren’t that much better. The way the Unseelie controlled the black animals to frighten and torment was very creepy. I will never be able to see a black cat again without wondering about its evil intent.

I liked the way the story was told, though it took me a little while to catch up with some of the abbreviations in the lingo, such as PDA. That made me feel a bit old! Still, the plot was dramatic and engaging; a very satisfying read. There were some lusty scenes, which may not be everyone’s cuppa, but I thought they were well written, and appropriately utilised for the story.

Pearl was such an interesting and deep character; strong and passionate, I instantly liked her. Most of the characters were quite complex, and I enjoyed getting to know them all. I was amused by Pearl’s denial of her feelings for bad boy Finn, while crushing on Cardy, who is considerably different in personality and looks. She had a great relationship with her older brother and sister, who were also her guardians. I disliked Finn at the start, he just acted like such a jerk, but he improved. As I got to know him better, I realised that he wasn’t all that bad, much more sensitive than I expected.

Valentine is most suitable for middle to upper high school students and older.
