Impact Velocity, the third in The Physics of Falling trilogy by Leah Petersen, takes us back into Jake’s life five years after the birth of his daughter, Molly, and his adoption of then two-year-old Owen Blaine, now seven. After a moving opening and transition showing the ups and downs of Jake’s life as the emperor’s husband and the father of two children, Leah Petersen blows us away with a death that drives Jake and his family underground.

So did this story take me a while to read, Yes. Why? It wasn't because it was bad. It was so SAD! Tears! The tragedy happens early on in the story. I was in denial until about 45% when it was confirmed without a doubt. I could no longer be in denial. I had to face the truth. (view spoiler) was really dead. No coming back. It was a faked.

The story is about Jacob and is mostly told from his POV. He

An amazing trilogy that no sci-fi or fantasy fan should miss!

This profoundly poignant, beautiful novel that’s reminiscent of Orson Scott Card or Ursula K Le Guin, contains all the social science aspects of a substantial storyline. The entertaining, character-driven plot is wonderfully wrought and brilliantly realized and presents a new perspective on people’s sexuality and orientation. The scientific achievements are fascinating as too is the cleverly complex plot that contains strong themes in

3.5 of 5 stars – A Satisfying Series End with Some Intriguing Twists
(I'm excited to have won this as a Goodreads First Read – so thanks, Leah!)

I love gay romantic sci-fi, and the situation, plot and characters in this one are very intriguing. I had not read the previous two Physics of Falling novels, but no need – this one can stand alone as an entertaining story of two men, the hero Dawes (from the “unclass,” gay and a father of two), and the antagonist Blaine (from nobility, straight and a fat

Impact Velocity is a significant improvement on the previous instalment. The action pacing is still consistently well done but there's much less ANGST between the MCs relational dealings. Jake seems to have finally grown up and better able to control his impulsive tendencies. I was very startled at the loss of a major character a third-way into the reading but I could see why it had to done to give shape to remainder of the tale. The character development for the bad-guy character Blaine was org ...more

The final book of the Trilogy. As for Trilogy, this one has the best ending. This one cleared up all loose ends and didn't leave you asking questions. As I said in the beginning, I'm not one for Sci-Fi books, but I really enjoyed this Trilogy. It gives you all the emotions that good books should give you.

Writing the final Jake and Pete book was bittersweet, but I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
