Editorial Reviews

Richard Jackson
Over the weekend, I finished Forbidden the Stars. The book lived up to all of my expectations.

It’s easy for a writer to get bogged down when writing science fiction. Some writers focus too much on the science and not enough the story. Others do the reverse. Valmore Daniels manages to maintain a balance between the two. It’s one of the things that made Forbidden the Stars a good read for me.
Matt Heckler
Forbidden The Stars is a perfect example of when multiple threads in a story can be woven together for excellent effect. It is not a straight space travel romp; it has a much bigger scope than that. There is some political intrigue, some subtle commentary, strong characterization, and an abundance of fun.
