An impossible mission.

I was asked to read and review Valkyrie on planet Fury: A novel with Gravitas. Once I started it, I realized it wasn’t the first book in the series, and frankly, I was confused. I went back to get the first book, Gravitas: Valkyrie in the Forbidden Zone, to read first. Both titles are available on Kindle Unlimited.
Valkyrie picks up where Gravitas leaves off. Sybil and Jasu have returned from Earth, only to be summoned to planet Fury, for some unknown reason. The Fury are pretty much the Valkyrie antithesis; where the Valkyrie Gravitas is a powerful aphrodisiac, the Fury produce wroth
“….a compound that produces the opposite effect _ anger, revenge, merciless destruction.”
Needless to say, they are in a very precarious position on a hostile planet.
There was a lot going on in Valkyrie, on Planet Fury, and for a bit, I wasn’t sure if we had a clear course to the story. At some points, I was a bit confused with what was going on, and had to re-read parts for clarity. I also noticed more errors; such as using wrong words, or words being switched to the point where it interrupted my concentration while I read.
Overall, I found Valkyrie on Planet Fury extremely entertaining. Had it not been for those few issues; and again, with those ever present fade to blacks, I would have rated it higher. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first, but I think it was a fun ride!
