Vallar: Cindy Borgne

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

Ian Connors struggles to save the girl of his dreams and escape the corruption surrounding him - otherwise there is no future for either of them. He must take charge of his life or he will remain a pawn and forever separated from those he loves.

The story takes place in the future about a hundred years after the people of Earth decided to abandon the colonies of Mars. This happened due to Earth’s population problems and a dwindling of their own resources. Over time, the scientific colonies evolved into military factions. The leaders of Marscorp believe that by conquering smaller organizations they will be able to gain enough power to force their way back to Earth. They seek to use Ian for his psychic ability in order to complete their mission.

Good Reads Summary

This novel will immediately draw the reader into this strange world of scientific wonder and fascination.  The reader will be rooting for the main character throughout the book.  There are not many difficult scientific language/words that a reader that does not typically read scientific fiction will need to muddle through; the novel is decidedly more light-hearted and even more enjoyable than the nail-biting science fiction books many readers peruse on the shelves.  Ian, the main character, has the special ability to have visions.  He is utilized by a military faction to locate other colonies to plunder them.  As his visions continue he begins having visions about a young girl who he feels he must know more about, he has one disturbing vision when he attempts to force visions of the girl.  He escapes his colony to find and protect the girl, who he is drawn to.  In order to fully escape, he joins Vallar-an alliance of rebel organizations willing to stand up to Marscorp.  The reader will enjoy this new twist on science fiction, the terrific development of the characters, and the descriptive writing and dialogue of the author.  This novel is terrific for young adults and adults who enjoy light science fiction or want to try this genre.
