Book Review: Gravitis Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone by Lynne Murray

Gravitis Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone is an unusual science fiction novel. Incorporating aliens coming to earth with religious cults worshiping these ancient aliens as gods. The Gravitis Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone cover Lynne Murrayauthor has taken a unique view by relegating Earth as a part of the forbidden zone. Earth people are too self destructive for the planet to be desirable as a vacation spot.

Sybill and Josu along with Gelbrave are mysteriously transported to the forbidden zone. Sybill carries a potent and highly sought after substance, Gravitis, and have to find a way back to their home world before it ruins her. Unscrupulous aliens  pursue Sybill to acquire the Gravitis she carries.

The book was an easy read for me and I finished in just a few hours. There was a nice plot and the characters and culture were well done. It reminded me somewhat of a version of Star Trek from an alien perspective viewing earthlings as the underdeveloped people’s unable to reach the stars.

The book was an enjoyable read and I give it a four star review.  I would prefer a little more personal background to give a little more depth to the characters and plot.  The book is suitable for young adults and adult of any age that are looking for a quick and enjoyable sci-fi read. If it were a movie I’d rate it PG-13, there is some violence but the language it pretty clean and there are only inferences to sex.

About grandmapeachy

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
