Tom Doherty Associates, May 9, 2017 - Fiction - 144 pages

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.

User Review  - ben_a - LibraryThing

A free read from Tor. And worth every penny. A reviewer below describes it as "a trashy Serenity-like space witch murder spree" -- which is pretty much spot on. Not recommended Read full review

User Review  - AngelaJMaher - LibraryThing

This is a somewhat fun read, even if the subject matter is very much on the dark side. An unapologetic space adventure. Being a novella it's perfect for a quick hit of sci-fi, but it still provides a rich world as the setting for the copious action. Read full review
