The Experiencers

The Experiencers
The Experiencers

… The short length of the chapters in this novel, combined with a fast pace of storytelling to match the action happening made this a very fun and light read, much in the way Dan Brown’s book have short chapters but a lot goes down…. — A. A. Jankiewicz


… By adding the psychic element to the classical UFO tale, The Experiencers has a dimension most alien abduction stories lack. The story is tightly paced and full of enough wonder to keep everyone entertained. Amazingly, considering the subject matter, The Experiencers manages to feel grounded and grittily (if that wasn’t a word, it is now) realistic…. — Eric Lahti

… if you look at the book as a whole, a rather intricate storyline emerges. This is what I think makes The Experiencers a true gem. It’s like one of those Russian Dolls. You believe you understand it, you believe you know the characters and their motivations.

But this is book one in the series, and if you read between the lines, you’ll begin to be amazed at the attention Val Tobin has given to her characters…. — The Write Thought

… This book has an excellent narrative which compels the reader onwards regardless of the hour. The characters are well-conceived and their interactions natural and involving. You can’t help but become invested in their plight and there are certain very tense moments…. — Darrienia

… Val Tobin has a writing style that is complex and well researched, yet effortless to read. The pace increases as the plot develops, building tension through dialogue and clear imagery. This is a book that kept me intrigued right to the last page. It answers just enough questions while leaving the reader something to think about…. — Sylva Fae

A Ring of Truth

This is a clever and intricate story and written in a style that transports the reader directly into the action. As with The Experiencers, the story ends in a satisfying way while leaving plenty for the reader to think about. I’ve already downloaded my next Val Tobin book. — Sylva Fae

Injury

Injury Awarded Gold and Silver
Injury received gold and silver awards from Connections eMagazine

… Val Tobin’s Injury is alive and vicious. It writhes with sex, the glamour of the movies, and the brutality of Dani’s past. Reading it at a time when the papers are packed full of Harvey Weinstein and the seedy underbelly of Hollywood, brings an extra visceral thrill to the book…. — ReadFreely’s Book of the Month, October 2017

Injury is a well-written and suspenseful romantic tale…. — Write-Escape

… A nice, fast-paced story, Injury for me was chiefly distinguished by its nicely rounded protagonist. Typically in books of this type, movie-star heroines tend to be rather cardboard and interchangeable, but Daniella Grayson is a real, live, actual person, and this makes the book…. — Top Cat’s Alley

Walk-In

Walk-In
Walk-In

… Into this world of magic and spirits, Tobin drops a psychic reader, a powerful (and evil) psychic, a witch, and a journalist who’s out of his element, but ready to understand. She manages to weave a mystery about a missing woman with a story of a budding romance and wrap it all up in a paranormal bow…. — Eric Lahti

Storm Lake

Storm Lake
Storm Lake

… Storm Lake is a well written short story about the emergence of a new apex predator that wakes up and devours everything and everyone in its path. We witness this carnage through the eyes of a family vacationing at their summer cabin. There are far too few promising female voices in horror. Val Tobin is one of them to watch.… — Reaper’s Harvest Horror
