{Book Review} Slaves To Gravity: Wesley Southard & Somer Canon

Slaves To Gravity: Wesley Southard & Somer Canon

Reviewed By Miranda Crites

Charlie wakes up in the hospital, her life forever changed. There’s been an accident, and the life she once knew is gone. Once a contractor, now a paraplegic, bound to a wheelchair for life, she truly believed her life was over.

After returning home, one night she discovered she could fly. At first, it scared her, but it soon gave new meaning to her broken life.

It wasn’t long before she discovered she wasn’t alone in the sky. She found a group of other damaged people who could fly, too. But she was given warnings.

Of course, nothing good ever comes along without something terrible wanting to stop you from having a good time. There are horrible creatures–enemies–who don’t want Charlie or her friends in the sky. They’re willing to do anything to keep them from flying.

Canon and Southard pack a ton, literally two-thousand pounds, of action and mind-bending horror into these 145 pages. Boom. Boom. Boom. I actually read the entire book in a day, which, for me, should be some kind of record.

While the book was fun and enjoyable, the cosmic horror flavor, sci-fi and fantasy aspects, and bizarreness of the creatures was a bit out of my realm.

Slaves To Gravity: Wesley Southard & Somer Canon

After waking up in a hospital bed, paralyzed from the waist down, Charlie Snyder had no idea where life would take her. Dejected, broken, and permanently bound to a wheelchair, she believed her life was truly over. That is…until gravity no longer applied.

It started out slow. Floating from room to room. Menial tasks without assistance. When she decided to venture outside and take some real risks with her newfound ability, she rose above her own constraints to reveal a whole new world, and found other damaged individuals just like her to confide in.

But there are other things out there, waiting in the dark. Repulsive, secretive creatures that don’t want Charlie to touch the sky. And they’ll stop at nothing to keep her on the ground.
