Gravity Blog Tour: Review

304 pages
Release date (paperback): November 20th, 2012

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.
Seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed — arrogant Jackson Locke, the most popular boy in her school. She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her attention. She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know — especially an alien spy, like Jackson. Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country, but keeping silent will start a war.

Review (ARC):
Gravity is the kind of story that will cause you to lose track of time because you are so caught up in the world built here. This is a mix of dystopian and sci-fi and (I hope) a little mythology. I love Ari! She's smart, strong and the kind of heroine who takes action. Jackson is completely sweet and strong and you can't help but to love him. The world created in this novel is one where humans continuously do things to destroy themselves and they are heading in that direction again here. Aliens exist and while humans know of them they have been made out as something to be feared rather than appreciated for helping to heal the world countless times. Ari is conflicted with what her side on this should be especially after learning the truth about Jackson. Of course, there is a lot Ari doesn't know, despite being the Commander's daughter. There is quite a bit of action and danger, especially in the last part of this book, that bring things to one heck of a cliffhanger! I'm definitely excited to see what happens next to Ari and can't wait to see where her journey with Jackson takes her next. I absolutely recommend this novel especially to fans of aliens and science fiction novels.
