Valhai


Read by Gillian Andrews

(4.5 stars; 520 reviews)

The Sellites haven’t changed in thousands of years. They virtually rule their binary system, trading technology and minerals for anything they need. But they make a mistake with the new batch of fourteen-year-old donor apprentices they are taking back to their home planet, Valhai. Among them are a homeless no-name from the planet Kwaide and a member of the ruling Elders from Coriolis. Six and Diva are two diametrically opposed characters who don’t exactly take kindly to each other . . .

The Sellites genetically modify their children, ideally qualifying them for their future jobs. So Grace, the only unmodified teenager on Valhai, is also the only one who doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. She has a sister-in-law who won’t leave her in peace and a newly-widowed mother who has taken to sleeping in a sarcophagus. Grace can’t think straight. She needs to escape from all the pressure. So she decides to break Sellite regulations and venture outside – onto the planet . . .

. . . starting off a chain of events that will involve Six and Diva and force the Sellite race to change forever.

Reviews

Sci-Fi at its best!


(5 stars)

This is the first of a seven part series. While definitely aimed at a younger audience, it is still science fiction at its best. It deals with friendship and loyalty struggling in the face of classism, racism, sexism and greed. The quantum realm is a fantastic addition. I wonder why other authors haven't used it in similar ways. Very original. A fun read.

Wonderful adventure!

I am now on the last book in this series and it has been a wonderful adventure. Gillian Andrews is an excellent reader and makes you feel like part of her family with her introductions and sign offs at the beginning & end of each fantastic book in this series. Highly recommended!

Oh my!!

Absolutely beautiful story. I loved the repartee between th two main characters. I felt good at the end. Anxious to keep reading but totally satisfied. The narrator was excellent. The diction was perfect and the voice was wonderful. The perfect amount of emotion and the characters were easily distinguished.

Good people in a bad situation saved by a morally right minded teenager. I recommend this story and the author. Gillian Andrews presents beautifully in a well recorded set of episodes that are just the right length. This book deserves the "Family Friendly" tag. My kids can hear/read it as ...

Great book! I enjoyed this book very much. It's not particularly a kiddy book but it can be read by children (if you are wondering why people say it's not children friendly, read the spoiler at the end). The voicing was top quality, and compared to other authors voices it's ...
