I didn't want to read this book, because Henry annoyed me so badly in the first one. He was doing exactly what I suspected he was doing, but that didn't matter. But, for some reason I couldn't let it go, and I bought this one. I'm glad I did, because I liked it so much more than the first one. So many things were explained, and yet there are so many more questions. I like Henry in this one, and found myself feeling so bad for him. I do believe him that his and Ariel's story isn't finished, in fa ...more
4.5 out of 5 stars

Uncertainty was kindly provided to me by author, Abigail Boyd and is the second book in the Gravity series.

Since recently reading Gravity, I have been quite anxious to get hold of the sequel and I am thankful it didn’t fail to disappoint although it has left me with so many questions I am eager to discover the answers to.

15 year old Ariel Donovan resides in the town of Hell, Michigan and has the uncanny ability to see ghosts. When her best friend, Jenna who has recently been bu
Well, it has been quite a while since I read the first book in the Gravity series, and I must say a lot of my complaints from the first book have been absolved, starting with the following:

- Ariel's parents, especially Claire, now seem like parents to her. I am not quite sure what it was in the first book that made them seem off, but it was not so in this book.

That was one of my biggest deterrents in enjoying the first book. I still give Uncertainty a 3.5-- it was good, entertaining, interesting

I won a copy of Uncertainty through LibraryThing. And after reading Gravity, all I could say was "Yay!"

Uncertainty starts out with Ariel starting summer break, about a year after her best friend Jenna went missing. Jenna's body has fortunately been found and buried, and Ariel isn't having the dreams of her anymore. Well, thanks to modern medicine. Ariel is sick of being in a Benzo fog, so she decides to take herself off her meds (NOT a good idea btw) and as soon as she does this, she gets her b
This book was just as good as the first in the series I felt. I love how Boyd continues to weave her magic in this second book of the Gravity series. Again, we find the lead character Ariel dealing with the supernatural and the death of her best friend. There are twists and turns that will leave the reader sitting on the edge of their seat and wanting to know desperately what happens next. I bought the third book in this series before I was even finished with this one because I just want to cont ...more

WOW! Not only is this one better-written than the first, with fewer errors throughout, but it kept me interested the whole time. In fact, I was so engrossed, I barely noticed that I’d passed the halfway mark until I was 80% into the novel.

With that said, at there was barely anything exciting that DID happen until then. It didn’t exactly take away from the story, but when I realized that barely anything had happened aside from mundane teenage drama, I was a little disappointed. But then the actio

I am not going to go into a big, long and drawn-out review of all of the reasons that you should read this series. Good Golly Miss Molly, just go read it!

There are ghosts, and demons, and Limbo and Dark and creepy crows and even creepier people. Ghost Grandma, Lady in the Red Dress with the Red, Red Eyes. There are truly great friends, and once in a lifetime loves. There are murders, seances, cults and chanting and magical rocks, and pre
yet again I was pulled into the book needing to know what happens next....waiting for the next one is going to be tuff!
I loved the plot. It was a really good book!! I wish I lived her life!!!

As seen on ->

There's no way to go, but up. And that is what Abigail Boyd has done. There were still some issues, such as grammatical errors and also some things that were mentioned twice, one example, someone jumped off a stage and a few sentences later jumped off the stage again. These are errors that are hard to ignore and something that isn't expected from a published work. There is no doubt that Abigail Boyd has a talent in weaving tales, but the s

Fellow author Abigail Boyd and I have agreed to beta read each other’s books. The paranormal content in Uncertainty, book two in the Gravity series, has grown increasingly occultic. Extreme behavior (I won’t give away details for the sake of suspense) is reserved for the criminal element within the story and gives the book a strong sense of danger; nevertheless, some scenes went beyond my comfort zone.

Yet I can’t help but be impressed with Abigail’s writing style. Despite my qualms, the story i
I just finished reading the Gravity Series. I had concerns, initially, that it was going to end up like some weird ESP-laden version of Twilight. Fortunately, Ms. Boyd appears to have far more imagination than Myers.

The books focus on kids at the local high school, so there's a bit of teen-angst. And characters come from both genders, so there's a bit of romance. The kids find themselves trying to sort out a huge conspiracy theory threatening their town, so there's a bit of detective/mystery th
Um can I just say wow!? I was sucked into this book completely. From the first chapter until the last I was abosulutely hooked. Mostly because I was very eager to know what events would unfold, but also because I love the paranormal aspect of this series. Uncertainty came out with more questions, answers, and even more spookiness. We finally have the answer to how Jenna disappeared as well as the gruesome details of her death. was sadistic. That being said, Jenna is still stuck in ...more
I just finished _Uncertainty_, and it was definitely just as much of a page-turner as _Gravity_ was.

As mentioned by other reviewers, there were some grammatical errors that stuck out and interrupted the otherwise smooth storytelling. Despite those distractions, though, I thought this book was tighter and more focused that _Gravity_.

One facet of the story that particularly struck a chord with me was Claire's pressure on Ariel and Ariel's struggle with medications to help Ariel get back to "normal

Okay, as with the first book in this series, there were a lot of moments where I thought, 'Really???' And yet I was utterly hooked and so disappointed when I reached the end and realised I had stayed up so late and would not be able to start book 3 until the next day!

As I find with all series, book 2 is so much better than book 1. We're already involved with the characters and the mystery has thickened. I think something this book does really well is it makes you care. I cared what happened to e

I got these books through bookbub. I found these books to be okay. Entertaining yet at times I found myself thinking I have read something like this before, or getting lost in what the author was trying to say. The stories have a decent premise so to the point that you want to finish reading them. However, much like a lot of YA books these days there is a familiarity in boy/girl troubles and young persons getting themselves in too deep in things they have no idea about. I often wonder why these ...more

One thing I will never be able to resist in a book is a completely and utterly confusing book that you can not understand no matter how hard you try then, in the end, it all seems to come together. This book was and wasn't that. I absolutely love how everything, no matter how seemingly pointless, all came together into this amazing intricate plot line. Kudos to you Abigail. Godspeed on the rest of your writing dude.
Brandy Corona
This is the second installment of the Gravity series. Abigail Boyd took a great concept and spun it into an extraordinary tale of a girl who pushes through no matter how many obstacles get in her way.

In Uncertainty, Abigail answers a lot of questions that readers may have had in the first one. Without revealing everything, she satisfies the reader’s curiosity until the rest of the series comes out ( the 3rd and 4th books come out THIS MONTH!!!) This was a great sequel to the first one and I thor

I've been reading tons of indie YA paranormal series lately. That is to say, I've been reading a lot of "Book One"s and rarely making it on to "Book Two"s. Even when the ideas are interesting, there are far too many writing and editing problems that kick me right out of the story.

Not so with Abigail Boyd's Gravity series! Interesting, well-written and with a fantastic editorial eye. I'm very much looking forward to Book 3.

This is well-paced and well-plotted. It's great to see how the mysteries o
YA author Abigail Boyd's follow up novel to Gravity is a great read. She seems to have hit her stride with the on going angst of teenager, Ariel. It's now the end of the school year and Ariel is heart broken over her loss of Henry's love and friendship. Thanks to her best friend, Theo she is dealing much better with the death of her childhood friend, Jenna. Only now Ariel is seeing Jennas ghost who doesn't want to believe she is dead. Now Ariel has to not only deal with trying to keep her parent ...more

An interesting paranormal YA mystery.

A good YA mystery leaving you wondering who is really behind all the sacrifices in Hell. Well it was a decent stand alone novel, I think it would have had a better flow if it were read immediately after book 1.

It is an intriguing enough mystery that I will be reading the third book in hopes that the bad guys all get whats coming to them. I really like Ariel, she's a good strong heroine, and she needs all her strength to keep a clear head with out the drugs he
Rachel Walter
Pretty good October read, just as book one. Parts of thus story seemed to drag and not really add momentum, but it was still a good, quick read. I'm grateful for stumbling upon this series.
Patricia Austin
My only issue is the lack of editing, having to read through the poor grammar and confusing sentences was a drawback. Otherwise, I am really enjoying the story.
What can I say I liked it, it kept me wanting to know what's next, so on I go to find out
i just had to keep on reading!!!!!i sooo wanted to know about thornhill!!!
Uncertainty is a predictable murder mystery. I did enjoy how the author took us through the story though. I didn't read the first book to this series but enough info was given that you can figure out what the first one was about. I will definitely get the next book in this series just to see where the author takes it (although I think that is pretty predictable too).

My only comment for the author is that there needs to be better proofing. There were several grammatical/spelling errors that stood
Another enjoyable pleasure in this engrossing series!
Loved it
I'm not sure if Boyd just has a great vocabulary or a great thesaurus. She uses some odd words sometimes.

Not a fan of only reading one steamy kissing scene only to have the two back to fighting the very next paragraph... but I have high hopes for book three in that department.

Also, there were a ton more errors in this one. I hope book three will better edited.

It was nice to get some answers even though the majority of the questions weren't answered.

Another 3 1/2 stars.
Casia Courtier
I read GRAVITY and was surprised that nothing was answered. Some readers hated this about the first book. The great thing? The second book answered a lot of those questions and kept it going strong. I am more engrossed in the world, more in love with the characters, and when I thought Boyd couldn't do better, she hits me dead on. If you were uncertain about GRAVITY you will be certain about UNCERTAINTY. I really liked the first book. I LOVE this one!
