THE MVP is the fourth book in the Galactic Football League series, following on THE ROOKIE, THE STARTER and THE ALL-PRO. Set in a lethal American professional football league seven centuries in the future, THE MVP puts huge humans on the field with four alien races, creating a game that is faster, stronger and deadlier than anything we know today. Star quarterback Quentin Barnes has spent three seasons putting together a hard-hitting, hard-fighting team that combines rookies, rejects, discarded free agents and seasoned veterans from all five species. He has fought against racism and bound his team together through shared sacrifice, blood, tragedy and victory. But this season, Quentin faces the biggest challenge yet - the deadly threat of the mysterious Prawatt, who seized the ship carrying Quentin, and his teammates. As THE MVP begins, the Ionath Krakens face certain death at the hands of this unknown race. The GFL series combines science fiction, crime and blistering sports action to create a non-stop, pulse-pounding adventure that you can't put down until the last second ticks off the clock.
Yet another great book from Scott Sigler. Can't wait for September 2014 for the next one!!
A must read for any fan of Sci-Fi or gridiron. A brilliantly constructed universe that is both detailed and easily accessible. The perfect pick up and put down read. I cannot wait for the next book in this epic series.
The series just continues to get better.
I got into Sigler's work thru his horror works, Infected hooked me and I've read all his stuff but I left the GFL series to last. I'm not American I have no interest in NFL but I'm so glad I did get around to them. The (Literally literal) universe Sigler creates is so detailed and the on field battles so riveting. The series gets better with each outting.
