The Blurb
They are calling it the End of Days. The world is plunging into darkness, the days growing shorter and the nights longer. Meteor showers are falling to the earth and there are some who would take advantage of the growing darkness.

For sixteen-year-old Bronte Bell, her problems are closer to home. Since her birthday she’s become weaker, her bones breaking, her hair falling out and plagued with constant migraines. No one can explain why. Until a mysterious new boy arrives and tells her that everything is not as it seems. She is not what she seems.

Drawn into a war that divides the sky, Bronte is torn between her desire to save the world and her growing connection with Nick. But she will have to let go of reality as she knows it, if she is to accept her role in destiny before the Hunter, who has been tracking her since birth, finds and destroys any chance she has of making the choice which is her birthright to make.

Her destiny will change everything…

The Review

Bronte is suffering from an illness that doctors can’t diagnose – what is wrong with her and why does no one have an answer? Her day-to-day life is torture, there’s broken bones and tiredness, plus the added torment of being the target of the bullies in school.

One day, whilst Bronte is hanging around with her best friend Lauren, she sees a young boy hiding his face and being all mysterious. The most unusual thing is, is that no one can see him, only Bronte – is this another symptom of her illness?

We soon learn that this mysterious being is called Nick and he is Bronte’s spiritual mentor. He has watched over her for the last sixteen years. As you can imagine, Nick and Bronte’s relationship develops quickly with Nick being the protector. You would expect their relationship to be that of romance, considering Gravity is a YA Paranormal Romance, but I was pleasantly surprised. They had a task in hand and spent most of their time focusing on that, plus being separated for periods of time, doesn’t help!

She is what’s known as a half-born – half human and half star – and this is where the paranormal element comes in. The stars are falling, which means the world is becoming engulfed in darkness. Bronte’s quest has never been so important. I won’t spoil it too much for you, but she needs to make a decision and she needs to make it fast.

What I liked most about Bronte was her can-do attitude and how she just got on with things, rather than wallow in self-pity. She had a lot of life changing things  thrown in her face and she just got on with it. Granted she did have a few wobbles, but what 16 year-old doesn’t have a few of them?

    Wow, the blurb is really weird (in a great way). Half star?

    I loved that you were surprised that there wasn’t that much romance. I find that refreshing 😀

      I’m not a big fan of romance, as I’ve read a lot and it’s usually the same. However, Gravity, like you say, is refreshing. There is connection but it’s natural and not over the top! 😊
