Book Description

Ian Connors is a lonely sixteen-year-old with only a single friend. He also happens to be the secret weapon of a powerful military faction bent on conquering all humans who have colonized Mars. His job is to use his psychic ability to uncover secrets or hidden bases of other factions. Ian not only uncovers a valuable hidden mine through his visions, but also Kayla, a woman he sees himself with in the future. The only problem is she’s on the other side.

Ian heads out into a battle to save Kayla. Instead, he discovers the death and destruction his visions can bring when in the wrong hands. Ian vows to never let anyone use him again. His goal is to escape and live in peace, but his superiors monitor him closely and defectors are known to mysteriously disappear. Deep down, he longs to be with Kayla. Despite his age, inexperience and few allies, he refuses to give up. He must outwit a cunning admiral and save Kayla from his own people or he will remain a pawn and forever separated from those he loves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Written to a high standard 16 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the best books I've read in a good while, in Vallar Cindy Borgne creates a tangible feuding society on Mars, with an innocent teenager caught in the middle. Ian, a psychic, hates war, and when he causes a skirmish by revealing his visions to his Admiral (which he is required to do), he is disgusted in the results of his actions. Through the pages of this book we follow how he tries to escape from what appears, at first glance, to be his destiny, to reach for a vision he has little hope of achieving. But there are friends to be found in the unlikeliest of places, and sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

This is a book that is written to a high standard in both story-telling and language. I simply devoured this story, and hope to pick up more books by Cindy soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Sci-Fi Adventure 25 May 2011
By Killie
Format:Kindle Edition
In the beginning I felt that the story felt rather slow and it took me a little bit to really get a feel for the characters. However, within a couple of chapters it was in full flow and I was hooked. The plot progresses at a nice pace, keeping you interested and wanting to turn the page to find out what happens next. This was enjoyable light Sci-Fi, with the emphasis more on being an enjoyable adventure in a futuristic setting than filling pages with techno-speak and heavy scientific explanations.

Overall, I loved the story and can't wait for Cindy Borgne to write the sequel which is surely coming. If you like trying out Indie authors and Sci-Fi adventures are something you enjoy then I am sure you will like "Vallar".

4.0 out of 5 stars Seer Of Mars (the Vallar Series ) 11 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
first I will say I enjoyed this tale although nothing new in this book in terms of story line, But don't let that put you of, The scene is mars and Ian, he was raised by a mining company called Marscorp from the age of 4 years old as a psychic along with his friend Nate, The story starts with Ian at the age of 16 pressed into service by Marscorp to use his psychic abilities for the company, from this moment his life starts to change.
This is an easy Light read, my copy for Kindle had a few grammar problems in terms of words missing not that it spoiled the story, the story starts slowly but increases to a trot towards the end, the fighting scenes left a little to be desired as you just know that all involved in the battles on the goodies side will survive no matter what.
All in all a good light read and would read the sequel by Cindy Borgne 4 STARS

2.0 out of 5 stars Not For Me, But Others May Well Like It 2 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whilst I imagine a lot of people will like this book, it wasn't one of my favourites.

It's always difficult to write in the first person, as it limits the scope of what one can write, and I think this book suffers from that affliction - in my opinion, anyway. There simply isn't enough background material presented to support the story and it therefore comes across to me too much as 'this happened, then that happened'. We get a fair bit of the main character's feelings too but, for me, I felt more 'told' what they were thinking and their emotions, rather than 'feeling' those things, if you get my drift.

I feel there is the seed of a good series in this, but I think if the next instalment is also first-person, I'll probably give it a miss, as I think there's a lot more to 'fill out' in the universe the story plays in.

As I say, however, no doubt lots more will like this book.
