Editorial Reviews

Hollywoodlitsales - Hollywoodlitsales Hollywoodlitsales
There are some compelling moments in this story. The high point is the action, which is visually exciting and inventive and would translate well to film. The epic battles between the aliens and humanity would certainly provide some strong imagery for the big screen.

    This was a fascinating albeit, a confusing read, a few too many

    This was a fascinating albeit, a confusing read, a few too many characters to keep up with, (for me) and an over use of exclamation points that were not necessary, though this could have had something to do with the conversion from the author's word processing program to the Nook format.
    I do agree with Hudley, on the desire to read a second book to find out what else happens with the aliens that remained, and Ryan and Sarah. I also could see this as a movie as it does move at a fast movie like pace.

    Excellent action packed storyline

    Here is what I felt about the story. Gravity is a futuristic story with dramatic plot, very diverse and interesting characters with an exciting storyline. The book was very visual for me to follow the non-stop action that lasted to the end of the story. The story ends with a mystery that I can't wait to find out who within humans have cynical plans to wipe out the rest of humans. I am sure a sequel is in order. I believe the author is part of a go-green team as I see traces of it in the new technologies described in the story:) The idea of making humans exhale oxygen at a higher percentage compared to what they inhale was really intriguing. Being a science major myself, I can say that a lot of thought went into the writing around detailing newer technologies. I should admit that I got sick when the aliens are invincible no matter how men fight them but the climax was really mind-blowing. Something that I have never read before. Trust me, justice is done if this story hits the big screen. I am glad this was one of the eBooks I enjoyed after I shifted towards reading eBooks.

    Good book for fans of Sci-Fi

    Future tech and aliens--a good read for sci-fi fans and those who want a book geared to make you think. I enjoyed it.

    There is a reason this book is self published.

    I tried to read the whole book. It is that bad.
