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.
This book was explosively amazing from the very first chapter. Ari was a wonderful protagonist, strong despite all she goes through. Being the daughter of someone like her father can’t be easy, especially when you have to basically betray them to save them. Then there’s Jackson, you just wish you could see inside that head of his as there is so much more than what is bubbling at the surface.
Even though there is romance in this book, I like that the author didn’t make the novel revolve around it. There are those sweet, amazingly cute moments, and then there are times when the characters know to be serious. This really is an awesome book and I can’t wait to read the sequel. Melissa West really knows how to write a Scifi/Dystopian novel. Gravity harbors an eerily believable future, one that I can’t wait to delve into again.
I’m pretty sure I overused words like: Awesome, amazing, etc. in this review. But, this series definitely has the power to become a new favorite for me. Give it a try!
