Meet the Author:

Daniela Valenti is the pen name for a Canadian psychiatrist who writes Paranormal Fiction. That may seem incongruous, but it’s not really. The work in her chosen field and her writing dovetail nicely. She is able to draw upon her work as a psychiatrist to create multidimensional characters who are simultaneously powerful and vulnerable. Daniela lives in Montreal and holds a medical degree from McGill. She speaks French and regards herself a chatty introvert. Growing up, she was a voracious reader of sci-fi and fantasy. Her interests today include supernatural lore, skincare and fashion, gorgeous travel destinations, true crime, and learning about narcissism and psychopathy. She’s thought a lot about love and evil and maintains that narcissism is the true nature of all evil. Daniela has traveled extensively. Her love of the exotic dominates many of the settings where the characters in her stories romp and play their parts. Her prior attempts at writing began at age nine with a story about a doctor’s cat, and then a short sci-fi story at age twenty-three. Thirteen years later, her foray into serious-minded writing simply happened. She began writing in 2017, after she returned from a trip to Prague for an international forensic psychiatry conference. What she learned there, combined with her impressions of Prague, her prior ruminations on the nature of love and evil, and her clinical knowledge all combined to create the first book in her series. It was a moment when all sorts of aspects of herself, her life experiences and her interests came together, like a self-assembling puzzle. The story came to her like a movie, unfolding in her head as she sat on an airplane, staring at the screen-less back of the chair in front of her, for the eight-hour trip back to Canada. Once set in motion, the wheels of creation kept on turning, and resulted in the Sentinel 10 series.

My Review: 

The Diamond Rose is the interesting debut by the talented author Daniela Valenti. It is a bit different than what I am used to reading. I am not a huge fan of fantasy, paranormal or science fiction. However, this one kept me intrigued and wondering where the story was going to lead to. I enjoyed getting to know Amanda and learning about her magical powers. She goes on quite an adventure that made me captivated and seeking as to what in the world she was going to do or get into on the following pages. I was intrigue from start to finish. I found it to be a fun, entertaining and unique story to read. I am so glad I took a chance in reading this one. It was quite the fun ride that I felt like I was taking for a few hours. 

The Diamond Rose is one story that should not be missed. I think many other readers would enjoy it, as well. Even if they are not fans of this genre, like me. I would love to continue reading more by Daniela Valenti in the near future. I want to know where her imagination will take her readers to next. 

I am giving The Diamond Rose four and a half stars. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading paranormal/ fantasy / science fiction. It is definitely worth a read. 

I received The Diamond Rose from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion
