Rich Historical Detail Will Sweep You Away to 12th Century Scotland!

The blood of kings runs in his veins and he might have to sacrifice much to regain what his family lost to other's power and greed. Domnall FitzWilliam was full of fury in the first book so I was thrilled to see him take center-stage in Valor.

Valor follows a parallel path to the first book Virtue so it could be read standalone. However, because it is a parallel book, I got much more out of it because I was already in possession of the knowledge of the events that were happening off scene dealing

New to me author!!

This is my first book by Victoria Vane and the second in the Sons of Scotland series. It is easily a stand alone, though I do believe the first book may overlap in a spot or two.

I really enjoyed this book. I like how it started out with two ten year olds lost in their own ways in this Medieval world and slowly worked it's way up until they were fully grown adults. They love and HEA went through so many hardships until they were able to be together. I find myself gasping at the

I was a bit lost on the characters but when Sybilla and Alexander were mentioned, I realized that this is Domnall's history and some of the events happened simultaneously with that of the first book.

As usual, it's an enjoyable read, and it made me really wonder about Scotland's history. One thing is consistent through the years, and that is political intrigue and the royal court.

I will not attempt to summarise the story, as the blurb does it better than I ever could, because a lot happens in VALOR. VALOR is the second book in the Sons of Scotland series, a sweeping saga of valiant Scots determined to take back what is rightfully theirs and still manage to fall in love. VALOR works splendidly as a standalone, however those who have read VIRTUE, the previous instalment get to know what had happened to Sibylla and Alexander, as the stories for both novels take place concur ...more

Valor tells the stories of Domnall Mac Williams of Kilmuir and Davina of Crailing. I did not read the first book in this series but this book holds its own as a stand-alone. I found the writing to be rich and easy to read. While this book is the standard story of this genre I liked the twists and turns Victoria Vane skillfully used in her storytelling. It was interesting enough to keep my mind off the traffic we negotiated on a long car trip and I was able to read it in a day. I felt the charact ...more

This is book two in The Son's of Scotland Series and for me, so far, is the most intense. This story gives us the inside information of Domnall Fitz William's past. He is descendant of two kings but left to be viewed as a bastard. There is definitely a turbulent history that goes along side his journey at every turn. Since he was a child he vowed to reclaim his mother's family land. Along his life journey has been one constant, Davina of Crailing. She has inbedded herself in his life since he fo ...more

This story begins with two children, Davina and Domnall, who meet as both are separated from their families forever, each from a different set of circumstances. She is the daughter of a respected knight, he the bastard son of an heir to a throne. As a result of being thrown together, they form a bond of friendship that grows through several years into an intense love for each other. Set against the background of the battle for that throne in medieval Scotland, this tale is filled with intrigue,

A sweeping saga that captures the essence of 1100's Scotland and the turmoil that challenged so many. Can you imagine your home being overtaken and everyone killed but you somehow escaped? Such was the terror of Davina of Crailing when she was a young child. Raiders came in killed everyone and Davina managed to escape and hide. Domnall Fitz William was travelling with his father and they came upon Crailing. Seeing everyone murdered and nothing left in the keep it appeared there was no survivors. ...more

So Much History! Valor by Victoria Vane is the 2nd book in The Sons of Scotland series. There is so much history in this book that I can’t even imagine the research that went in to it. The descriptions are so detailed and you cannot help but to picture them in your mind. This is a really sad story but I feel that is was the true way of life back in 1140 A. D. This story has deceit, battles, enemies, kindness, devotion, abduction, murder, evil, good, knights, kings, princes, princesses, Normans, ...more

As a young child, Davina of Crailing lost everything she loved--her family murdered and her home burned. As an orphan and heiress, Davina is taken in as a ward of the king, but his motives are far from benevolent. I very much enjoyed reading this book. Domnall and Davina met after he ...more

This is the second book in the series. While you could read either book on its own, you need to read this one after the other when reading both.
Our story starts when our characters are only children and covers many traumatic years for both of them. Our hero has the blood of kings running through his veins but has been pushed aside by politics. Being in close contact with a the royal family is not an easy life. Every word and action can cost someone their life or freedom. How can two young peopl

The only survivor of a devastating attack on her family, Davina becomes a Ward of the Court. Domnall, having rescued Davina as a child, falls in love and vows to marry her and her only. As they mature into adults, their life is once again manipulated by those with an evil agenda. Davina and Domnall are torn apart and believe that they will never see each other again. But, fate has a different agenda. The magic is the way in which it occurs. A very well written book for this series.

This second book in the Sons of Scotland series continues the broad sweep of Scottish history. Following the story of Domnall, a potential heir to the throne of Scotland and the woman he met as a child, Davina. Whether together or apart, their love story transcends all the danger and strife they must overcome to be together.
More of an historical tale than a romance, Victoria Vane does an amazing job of providing an inside look at the many factions scheming for the crown. While we do not know who

Will love endure

This is a love story set in a turbulent time in
Scotland. The lives of two young children hang in the balance of survival and a growing love for each other.
This book takes you through countless diplomatic pressures from the King and others.

Great story

Victoria
Vane writes another great story! I thought this was a sequel to her first book. It is but not really but kinda.
This story started when Davina was nine and Domnal was ten.
Events happen some good, some bad and one really bad.
Telling the story does not do justice to how Victoria Vane has written this story. It needs to be read!!

An enduring love

From the age of ten when Davina was rescued, there has been a special bond with Domnal. Through many years and few times together their love endures during conflict between Scotts and Norman. A lot of political history with romance.

Davina & Domnall’s story is filled with betrayal, hopes, dreams, the frailty of the human spirit, and reality. We are not always given an easy life but learning to make the most of what we have been given, and looking for the positives that encourage contentment, are important life lessons. These characters present strength even when they feel inadequacies, the have the depth to contemplate their issues and come up with resolutions to work to their advantage.

Valor by Victoria Vane is medieval romance. This book does have a lot of ancestry mentions in it, which may be confusing for some people. Ms. Vane has delivered a book that is well-written. I liked the characters and seeing how they develop as time passes. Davina is orphaned and her home burned when Domnall discovers her hiding. Domnall was declared a bastard when the king ruled his parents marriage null and his father disowned him. Domnall and Davina's story stretches over many years and is loa ...more

After reading the first book in the Sons of Scotland series, Virtue, I very much looked forward to this second book and Victoria Vane did not disappoint! My heart ached for what Davina and Domnall had to go through before their HEA and their story kept my interest the whole way through. The research that went into this book is very obvious and not only do you get a love story, you also learn so much about the political upheaval that went on in those times. Ms. Vane deserves high praises for this ...more

2.5/5.0

Ms. Vane crafts a historical novel of epic proportions, spanning both time and distance as characters grow from children to young adults battling for their birthright and their right to love.

I'm a new reader of this author but have been so impressed with her writing. The characters are so richly detailed and the storyline is awesome. Due to the time period, there are some gruesome details but nothing too graphic. I would recommend reading Virtue, book 1 in this series first. Another awesome read too.
