Book Description

Fate can be unkind. Would you dare to look back and risk her wrath? When you’re a child of the favela, in the Valley of Steel, you know that Fate comes like a whirlwind, lifting some to great heights and slapping others down with no reason.

Ivan, rescued first from an orphanage in the slums of Rio de Janeiro and then from the bleak streets of Ipatinga in Brazil’s Valley of Steel, has been favored by Fate. When a call from Brazil interrupts his privileged life in America, he learns his best friend has committed suicide in the rugged Valley of Steel and only he knows the real reasons why.

This is the story of one man’s journey home after a self-inflicted exile. The story of a boy who saw more than any child should, and the man he grew into—and how that man came back to the Valley of Steel to avenge his childhood and stare down the demons of his past.

It is a story of survival, redemption, and joy. Of childhood memories that burn in the soul—and what happens when one man has courage enough to fan the flames and face the fire.

Hear What the Critics are Saying

"If you enjoyed The Kite Runner, then you’ll love Ivan King's Valley of Steel; it both made me laugh and cry. It is by far one of the best fiction novels for young adults I have read this year. A Must Read."

-Mary Jones -Valley Daily News

“This inspirational book for young adults was a great read; I have a sixteen year old son and both he and I read it; Great Book.”

-Judy B. Cohen -Valley Group Media

“I was looking for a book about dealing with depression and anxiety and a friend recommend this one. I won’t lie to you, by the end I was crying a bit. Highly Recommend.”

-Dave Baker -Book Bloggers of America

“My Daughter in Law recommended this book to me and so I bought it. I was trying to overcome the loss of a family member so the book really spoke to me. This is just me, but I thought the book was sad; as a coming of age tale for young adults, it sends a very Powerful Message.”

-Debra Eisner -Literary Times Inc.

Editorial Review

In this gritty, yet beautiful and genuine Novel, loosely based on his life, Ivan King reveals what life was like growing up in a Brazilian slum. The events in this book are heart-warming and gut wrenching; forcing the reader to laugh and cry.

The naked realism the author uses to tell his story of redemption is phenomenal. Few writers have the deep psychological insight necessary to expose their most vulnerable selves. Ivan King bares his emotional soul for us. Truly Inspirational.
