"Birth Right keeps readers engrossed with its interesting premise, intriguing plot, and compelling narrative."
Prairies Book Review
"Sci-fi and fantasy readers seeking a story that bridges several subgenres and fills its pages with impossible challenges and hope against all odds will find Birth Right: Galak's Rising an excellent story that stands well on its own, but sets the stage for more stories in the series. It's a vivid, memorable tale of choices, consequences, and their lasting impact on the future of humanity that will linger in the mind long after the final struggle's outcome."

Galak is on a mission to dominate the future by mating with the Valki females. In the Galak world, choices and freedom have been obliterated. Valki twins 99 and 100 have a dilemma–whoever wins the mandated physical challenge will be the next mate of Galak. A crisis of conscious and a will to be free changes the twin’s destinies forever–will either be able to survive?
New relationships, trust, and collaboration will be key to the human and Valki survival if they are to successfully challenge the oppressive rule of Galak. As new alliances are forged and nurtured, can the past teachings and beliefs be left behind? This first book in Author Goebel’s series is a fantasy tale of courage and determination with a vision for a new world order of what might be, with a hint of what’s to come!
With sci-fi dark forces to contend with, it will have you believing in realistic truths. You’ll be hoping for the best, seeking answers and routing for love. This is an easy read as it keeps you captivated- to discover the next revelation.
Among the twists and turns, the unknown and the sparks of deep human or at least part human compassion, there are mysterious hidden clues. Through heart and fruition, destinies come together along this spiral of a journey.
I gasped when Galak killed Mark, and I really hoped that wouldn’t be the last we read of him.
Blackbeard was an interesting character and I was able to connect with him rather quickly because he was just really amusing. (Throwing darts at a picture of his ex, read Einstein’s works AND an Elvis fan…)
“He pierces her soul with his gaze. She will later swear she saw
the burning red flames of the sun as he pulled her close and kissed
her passionately.” Ummmmm….what? I thought the character development was going well but this was too much for my taste.
I felt also sad for the Valki throughout the book because they were hated by all of society and Galak only saw them as his own stock and trade.
One story line I didn’t like much was that of Prince Henry. I did feel sad for him when he thought about his dad but other than that part of humanity left in him, I felt like he was just really a jock in Prince clothing.
“99 feels a chill, too. She has decided what she must do.” I read that part and thought NOOOO YOU HAVE NO IDEA GIRL, YOU HAVE NO IDEA. !!!
Sila and 99 saying goodbye was an emotional scene. I kept thinking about what the Galak would do to 100 out of spite.
I thought that the reason Galak’s offspring come out mutants is maybe because he unknowingly picks a weak selection of women to have his offspring with. Clearly 99 is the strongest of the two and 100 is really the weakest link.
99 and Ser’s encounter was much more developed than Henry and the girl he rescued. And dang, what a complicated relationship this two have.
LOL when 99 has to leave, she has more emotion leaving her dog than Ser. Henry’s banter with 99 was enjoyable but, changing her name? Meh. He’s so annoying.
By chapter 16 I am hoping 99 stays with Henry and 100 with Ser because I cannot stand another love triangle.
The recue party that forms makes me wonder if by the end of the book, the rescue will be left at a cliff hanger!!! Nooo!!
“Galak tries to shake Jessica loose, but she moves carefully, blocking his efforts. She attempts to strangle him, but it’s impossible with his armor. What was she thinking?”
Seriously what WAS she thinking!?!?
The final fight scene was so emotional and suspenseful, it was such an enjoyable read and by the end to also discover Henry will be a dad. I really held my breath for several pages until I read that Jessica and the baby were ok. And just when I thought Galak was surely dead…
Throughout the book, I really enjoyed reading the various viewpoints, the cyborgs, the humans and the humans and the genetically enhanced humans. It was great to hear from each being, especially those that weren’t human. Being a SCI FI book, I didn’t expect comedy, so I was glad that many pages throughout the book made me giggle.
