When you know your life has a deadline, why play it safe?
Grav-walker Jasper Pine ekes out a risky livelihood as a scavenger in a city full of treacherous and unpredictable gravity zones. But she has a secret, an alien infection that will soon shatter gravity again. This time it could endanger the whole planet.
Without a workable cure, Jasper's only plan is to die before her infection matures. She lives her life fast, wild, and reckless, with no hope for her future. Until one day she meets a feral boy with a secret that might save her. But even if the boy trusted her—which he doesn't—he's been captured by a ruthless military cult. In desperation Jasper turns to Ryan for help, a charming ex-soldier whose mission threatens her life and freedom. She should definitely avoid him. But if she's not careful, he might end up reminding her of why life is worth fighting for.
In the zones, trust can be as deadly as hope, but Jasper's time is running out. What will she risk for a chance to live?
A dystopian adventure perfect for fans of strong female protagonists, slow burn romance, found family, and whimsical sci-fi.
