PRLog - April 18, 2011 - MACOMB, Mich. -- Vallar is a science fiction novel for readers ages fifteen and up. The story takes place in a future time where the people of Earth have abandoned the colonies of Mars due to a dwindling of their own resources. The leaders of Marscorp believe that by pooling the planets assets, they will be able to gain enough power to force their way back to Earth.

The main character, sixteen-year-old Ian Connors, works for Marscorp. He uses his psychic ability to give the organization an advantage over other groups angling for control of the embattled planet. Ian's job is to use his visions to locate smaller organizations in order to plunder their valuables and incorporate their masses. But a disturbing vision and a horrible loss cause Ian to doubt his loyalties to a corrupt, dictatorial admiral.

Unwilling to be a pawn in the Admiral's dangerous game, Ian must find a way to escape and protect a girl he sees himself with in the future. His only hope may lie with a new organization known as Vallar - an alliance of rebel organizations willing to fight for their survival.

When asked about her inspiration for the story, Borgne said “I thought what if someone had psychic ability and was caught in a situation of being used by someone with power. What if he didn’t realize at first, but when he did he was still forced to do things he knew were wrong. What would he do?”

Borgne also explained about the research involved for the book: “I studied the book ‘A Traveler’s Guide to Mars.’ This book has the best detailed description of the various areas of Mars that I could find. I studied any map about Mars I could find. Google Mars is a good resource. I also studied the entire environment on Mars in depth.”

Vallar (ISBN-13: 978-1461024545 ) was published by CreateSpace and is available through Amazon.com or at www.createspace.com/3584241.

About the Author: Cindy Borgne lives in Michigan with her two children. She does freelance editing for novels, and has worked as a computer instructor for all ages.
