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.
While this book is about psychics, this book is science fiction since the characters’ psychic abilities are explainable using science, and are therefore not paranormal.
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!
