Killing Gravity
Killing Gravity | Corey J. White
11 posts | 11 read | 9 to read
Mars Xi can kill you with her mind, but she'll need more than psychic powers to save her in Killing Gravity, the thrilling science fiction space adventure debut by Corey J. White. Before she escaped in a bloody coup, MEPHISTO transformed Mariam Xi into a deadly voidwitch. Their training left her with terrifying capabilities, a fierce sense of independence, a deficit of trust, and an experimental pet named Seven. She’s spent her life on the run, but the boogeymen from her past are catching up with her. An encounter with a bounty hunter has left her hanging helpless in a dying spaceship, dependent on the mercy of strangers. Penned in on all sides, Mariam chases rumors to find the one who sold her out. To discover the truth and defeat her pursuers, she’ll have to stare into the abyss and find the secrets of her past, her future, and her terrifying potential. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

2018 has been a year full of novellas for me, and not just because I wanted to pad my Goodreads challenge numbers. There's just been a lot of well-reviewed and interesting sounding horror and sci-fi published in that format lately. Killing Gravity is a fun, action packed story in a space opera setting. At times I would've liked a bit more backstory and explanation, but I'll definitely read the sequels. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A fast, furious, gore-soaked read as super-powered psychic Mars tries to evade capture by unethical military researchers (think X-Men‘s Stryker; you won‘t be far off). There‘s a lot of action packed into this novella, with compact thumbnail characters and an adorable not-a-cat sidekick (space otak). Fun - I‘ll be hunting down the sequel in due course.

#RRSciFiMonth Day 8: can‘t wait to read

I should‘ve got to An Unkindness of Ghosts already, but SF (shockingly!) was the one category I didn‘t have time to complete for the Subjective Chaos Kind of Awards (which Unkindness went on to win). I really want to read it. Buuut I‘ll probably read Record of a Spaceborn Few and the Killing Gravity novellas first.

I just started reading this and the first chapter introduces an Asian MC and a non-binary person, who seems to be accurately depicted so far (proper use of pronouns, etc.). It‘s got me very excited to keep on going!

It‘s a space opera novella, if I‘m not mistaken. 🙂🙂

Sci-fi cyberpunk. A short fun ride, although the hectic pace makes some bits of the narrative feel squashed and in need of more room to breathe. Looking forward to the next installment.

River Tam but with telekinesis, an attitude, and a cat(ish). Lots of fun. Received an ARC to review.
