I live on a soulless planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market. People are sold on the black market, too. You have to work really hard not to become one of those people. Pay your taxes, keep your friends and family close, and more than anything else—don’t get caught by the Militia

Shelly Crane I'm not sure exactly. I'm thinking three, but I don't plan out the books and plot it all out like some authors do so... ;) I do know where it's going…moreI'm not sure exactly. I'm thinking three, but I don't plan out the books and plot it all out like some authors do so... ;) I do know where it's going eventually, but how they are getting there is all the fun mystery part that will just come as it comes. So I want to say three, but we'll see ;)(less)

“There is no gravity. The only thing holding me to this planet is you.”

You guys!!

I'm am dying to tell you about my new Sci-Fi book. Maxton is...*sigh*. I had to put this book off several times because of books that were already promised and it called to me while I wrote Altered and then Undeniably Chosen. Now that I have those done, I can FINALLY get to this book. I used to write more than one book at a time when I first started writing and publishing. At one point I had 3 series going at once!

5 Defying Gravity Stars

It’s been some time since I read a Shelley Crane book. She writes wonderful YA books. I was instantly intrigued with The Other Side of Gravity because of the 1.) Cover 2.) Summary and 3.) Author. Not to my surprise, I gobbled this sucker up. I devoured this book, it was fantastic, wonderful and it definitely took me on a journey to a different world.

The thing that I love about YA fantasy books is that you never know what kind o

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.

This book caught my attention from the beginning mainly for its beautiful cover and the plot was to me the most original.

I would not say that is a book I would not recommend, just that I think has not been for me.

What I liked : No doubt the building area of the world where the story unfolds is very interesting and has left me quite pleased . It bothers me not being able to connect with a story that unfolds in such an incredible

I would like to thank Red Coat PR & Shelly Crane for my copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Firstly the front cover is amazing, it is the whole reason I wanted to read the book! it captivated me as soon as I was browsing through titles to hopefully review.

Sophelia is a slave seven hundred years in the future on a planet on the other side of the sun, for some reason I'm still not quite sure of humans evacuated Earth to leave for this place. Only there isn't any oxygen or grav

Have what you want, go after them, but want the things you've got. Bet with the whole pot or walk away with a smile. Don't ever regret as you look back. And always tell the truth because you can't ever run faster than a lie."

The Other Side Of Gravity takes place on a planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market, including people and the rules are highly enforced by the militia.

When Sophelia was a young girl her mother gave her a doll to celebrate her birthday, unfortunately this activity was illegal. Sophelia's mother was caught and taken away leaving Sophelia on her own and with no way to pay the taxes required of the citizens so she was sent to become a slave

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at Shelly Crane's brand new star-crossed love story early on, and I have to say, she got me! The Other Side of Gravity is enthralling--an instant thrill ride of danger and romance, with a deep and winding future world that Crane sucks you into like a black hole in a far off galaxy! Sophelia and Maxton have a chemistry that is sweet and deep. The minute he finds her as a stowaway, I was hooked and invested. Maxton stops at nothing to keep her safe and make h ...more

Do I smell Romance? Yes I do.

The Other Side Of Gravity is a romance in its truest form. Rescuer turned boyfriend and Damsel in distress *Cue Disney music*

The one thing that stood out and really made me like this book was the uniqueness of the setting.

Maxon and Sophelia are in a new world behind the Sun, in this world you have to pay for everything, Air, Gravity pills to keep you attached to the Earth. Nearly everyone works in the mines, mining for metals as all other materials burn given the
