*Injury*by Val Tobin*5-Stars

Injury is a well-written and suspenseful romantic tale.

Injury

Daniella Grayson was a successful actress. She was rich, famous, and had a following of fans, yet she was troubled and unhappy. Having grown up in a dysfunctional home with an abusive mother and an absent father, Daniella sought comfort where she could. Unfortunately, Daniella chose the party life, with alcoholic drinking and unhealthy relationships. True love was nothing, but a fairy tale to Daniella, until Robert Copeland (Cope), became more to her than just a chauffeur. Not everyone, though, was happy with Daniella’s new love life, especially an obsessive, dangerous, and cruel ex-lover.

The two main characters, Daniella, and Cope were easy to become involved with because their characters were well-developed and their dialogue natural. Cope was my favorite character. I loved his caring and understanding nature. Daniella won me over. She worked hard to heal her inner demons and stop her self-destructive behavior. It was easy to root for this couple. I would have liked to have known Cope’s parents better and experience with them the events that lead them to their ultimate decision. And the ex-lover, well let’s just say, that the author crafts a perfect villain to add suspense and depth to this story.

I enjoyed reading Injury and would recommend it to anyone who savors compelling romantic tales.

*A Ring of Truth* 5-Star Paranormal Thriller*by Val Tobin

The Ring of Truth

A Ring of Truth is the second book in Val Tobin’s exciting paranormal series, The Valiant Chronicles. This book can be read as a stand alone.

I started this series out of curiosity, and I’m so glad that I did. A Ring of Truth is a fabulous story, superbly written, with a compelling plot and well-developed characters.

Carolyn Fairchild is a medium, and because of her unique gift she is wanted by the aliens and imprisoned by their ally, the government. The Agency, a particular branch of the government has been manipulating Carolyn’s memories and allowing the aliens to steal from her for years. Jim Cornell from the Agency considers Carolyn his prize possession and tortures and blackmails her for his own gain.

There are several subplots within A Ring of Truth which add depth and intrigue to this fascinating story. My attention was captured from the very first page. I was so engrossed in the story that I didn’t want the book to end.

I don’t know whether there will be a book three or not, but I sure hope so. This is the first book that I have read by this author, but it certainly won’t be my last.

I highly recommend giving this compelling thriller a read.
