Valiant by Merrie Destefano

The Valiant was supposed to save us. Instead, it triggered the end of the world.

Earth is in shambles. Everyone, even the poorest among us, invested in the Valiant’s space mining mission in the hopes we’d be saved from ourselves. But the second the ship leaves Earth’s atmosphere, our fate is sealed. The alien invasion begins. They pour into cities around the world through time portals, possessing humans, forcing us to kill one another.

And for whatever reason, my brother is their number one target.

Now the fate of the world lies in the hands of me, a seventeen-year-old girl, but with the help of my best friend, Justin―who’s suddenly starting to feel like more―maybe if we save my brother, we can save us all…

Valiant sums up with "save my brother, save the world". I have quoted from the book. This whole alien invasion makes me think about racing against time. With the invasion at the beginning, Sara came across a time traveler. Introducing himself to Sara and calmly tells her she could be one as well. Basically, Sara could not have said yes to the time traveler if not saving her brother. She agreed.

There are times when I read about the scene where Sara plans to save her brother, it kinda seem senseless to me because I don't really see him able to be that much of help to their situation. I rather felt that Sara was doing the impossible I hope she was realistic enough. Again, I appreciate her determination to what she sees best for her brother and everyone she loves.

Ultimately, Valiant is not to my liking as I was not engaged into it. The plot has that potential and needs more work of the things that are more important. I really hope to see the main reason to things and may it shine throughout the story.
