Excellent read. At first I thought it was an echo of Hunger Games, but no- it is it's own story, and very engrossing. I was only planning on reading a few chapters and then ended up staying up all night reading the whole darn thing. I am looking forward to the next.
This was an enjoyable Young-Adult Sci-Fi. I enjoyed the different worlds and the different interactions between the people from the different worlds. It was kinda sad that the worlds were in such a terrible shape with some people being so much better than others, but ....

Thanks for the story!

Interesting story that took an unexpected turn in a good way. I don't want to give anything away as the plot twist makes this story. I am looking forward to where the characters go from here and if the author can sustain the story without it coming to a predictable end - I hope so!

Very different...

This tale of young people traded as commodities is very different...yet it drags you into their fight for survival . I thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing is well-thought out, edited well, and overall rather clever.

Excellent podcast novel. The story was exciting and very original. I loved the characters and can't wait for the next book. Production on the podcast was spot on and the author's voice is wonderful.

I have been a Sci Fi fan for a long time. I live and work in Spain, but am English by birth.

Valhai was a finalist for the PARSEC AWARDS 2011, and this was HUGE for me. I am absolutely thrilled that there has been recognition for Valhai. It isn't the first book I have written, and it isn't the first book I have published, but it is special all the same. Valhai is the book I would have liked to have
