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 author 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.
