Ages 13+
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.

Reviews

Well done, but felt a little rushed towards the end by John (Posted on 7/22/2017)
I have mixed feelings about GraphicAudio’s adaptation of Scott Sigler's The MVP. On the one hand, its chock full of the same high-quality production values as the other books in their Galactic Football League series. I had high hopes for this one, especially because it's predecessor, The All-Pro was the best one they've done so far (of the core novels - their production of The Reporter is also right up there).

A few things stood out. I've been critical of their lack of vocal effects to differentiate the alien species in the story, but in The MVP, they finally add one. Unfortunately, the one species they chose to use the unique vocal effect on is the ONE species in the books that supposedly sounds just like humans! It's a baffling decision, but may be a nuance that is lost on new listeners. But it works so well, you wonder why they don't use effects anywhere else.

My other complaint is that the pace of the storytelling towards the end of the book (after the regular season) felt very rushed. Transitions from one game to the next were so abrupt it was difficult to recognize that the scene was changing. All in all, the last part, pretty much disc 5 of part 2, felt very rushed, as though they really had to work to keep the product at five CDs.

The rest of the book was the same quality as the other books; I'm just curious to see how the next book in the series, The Champion, will be handled, since it is the longest of all the books thus far.

All in all, a good product. Maybe I just had my expectations too high after The All-Pro and The Reporter.
More Interesting! by Armand (Posted on 4/9/2017)
Some life situations and really well done drama add to this already great series! Wonderful!
This series keeps getting better by Amy (Posted on 3/27/2017)
I know this is a football based series, but I love these characters so much. And we were introduced to new characters, a new race, and more twists and turns. Quentin keeps evolving, growing more and more from that butt head from book 1. And Becca is becoming a favorite, fast. Part 2 should bring even more intrigue and madcap football action!
slow build up by rafael (Posted on 3/3/2017)
well this story has a slow build up. It also has me interested in what's going to happen next.
