Mars is a voidwitch on the run from MEPHISTO, the corporation that made her what she is. After a tough encounter with a bounty hunter, she is rescued by a trio of strangers. She’s desperate to be on her own once more, but MEPHISTO has caught up with her. Not willing to risk the lives of the people that saved her, Mars must confront everything she’s been running from.
Novellas are getting harder for me to talk about. They’re so short, I feel restricted in what I can discuss for fear of giving away the entire story. And I always say “they’re too short!” about ones I enjoy. Killing Gravity is no different. It was over too soon and I wanted more!
Mars is a boss ass bitch with some awesome telekinetic-ish powers. Who doesn’t want to read about a powerful space witch!? (If you don’t, get outta here!)
This book gave me some Angry Planet vibes, but like, in a darker way and I’m about it. Also, Mars has an adorable friggen pet, Seven. I mean, every witch needs a familiar, right? I want my own Seven – she seems like she’d be way more cuddly and adoring than my two cats.
I really don’t know what to say about this book without giving away major details. I liked the characters, I liked the plot and I like the world. There’s a bit of LGBT+ rep going on too. I wish this was a full-length novel because it felt a little unresolved (not that full-length novels don’t have cliffhanger endings too).
If you like space adventures, violent fights, kick-ass women, cute animals, evil corps that manipulate people for their own evil gains and sassy AI then I’m thinking you’ll enjoy Killing Gravity. I’m certainly going to read on!
