The surprise union and a supernova event that took place three-hundred-and-sixty years ago, are the only hope for mankind’s future existence. Will their efforts be enough to save what's left of mankind? Read “The Gravitational Leap” and find out. This debut science fiction novel by Darrell Lee explores the relationships between religion, science, faith, love, loss, betrayal, greed and loyalty as the clans clash for control of the ultimate power source of their world.
