Edwin's long awaited awakening reveals more than he'd ever expected, even before his self-inflicted memory loss. Armed with new knowledge, he is torn between loyalty for Oresca and new, unavoidable obligations to Veracka and Princess Dorothea.
Peggy, finally coming to terms with her enhancement, faces a new dilemma. Edwin seems to have returned to himself, but she knows he's hiding something. She wants to trust him, but can she?
In Fight for Valor, Edwin fights to regain his memories and save Veracka from the Regent Council who would usurp the princess’ power for their own gains.
The thing about this book, and about the whole series, is it is just fun to read. The bad thing about this book is I could not put it down. I read it in two nights straight. I lost sleep, but it was worth it. It’s just a fun blend of fantasy and sci-fi, political intrigue, and romance. The reading is easy going and the ideas and plot kept my interest. The characters are all nuanced and very easy to relate to, except for perhaps the regent council and assassins. There are at least seven really interesting characters here. I loved princess Thea, the young royal dealing with a difficult situation, planning and biding her time against her captors, working tirelessly for her people, and using some amazing abilities. Edwin’s ability only grow in this novel and we see the real extent of it. Finally seeing progress between the Orescans and Verackans was great as well.
Overall, this was a great closure to the series. There were a few twists and surprises that were nice, and everything is tied up nicely. And since I can’t find much bad to say about it, it is 5 stars for me.
