Gravity (The Eclipse #1) by M. Leighton

Goodreads description: 

Love is irresistible. Gravity is undeniable. 

Holy men have foretold their birth for thousands of years. Supernatural creatures have awaited it for thousands more. Now, in the presence of an eclipse, three souls mature for a single purpose—to fight. They must fight for their lives, for their freedom and for the liberation of everyone possessed of a second nature. 


Peyton Giles’s world is turned upside down when she learns that everyone in her life and in her school is much more than they appear, she most of all. Peyton is the one person in all of time and history powerful enough to bring peace to the darkness and to the light. Not knowing that her powers could kill her, however, Peyton nearly loses her life only to have her brother’s best friend save it. Drawn to him in ways she can’t explain, Trace is the one person that she literally can’t live without. Her soul is tethered to her world through her connection to him. Without it, she will die. 

For the most part, Trace Kramer has always steered clear of his best friend’s sister. Until now. He never would’ve expected that Peyton would hold his life and his future in her hands the way she’s always held his heart. But she does. 

Peyton and Trace soon learn that love and fate aren’t easier than duty and destiny, at least not when you’re being hunted. Together, they are more powerful than any other creature on the planet—and more valuable—but apart, neither can survive to fight for freedom, for the only life they’ve ever known and for the lives of everyone they’ve ever met. 

Their need for one another is undeniable. Their love for one another is irresistible. But can it endure all that they must suffer?

Mary's Review:

I started this book because it was was written by M. Leighton and she is one of my favorite authors.

Best part of the book: The characters were very good.  Trace, Peyton, Brady and Lacey were well amazing together. I liked their interactions together and how they did want to protect each other.  Another part that I enjoyed was the ending! It was a great cliffhanger.

Not so great part of book: *hangs head* Okay, I am going to be honest.  I did not like the beginning of the book.  It seemed to take me forever to get into it.  I am not a fan of the "groundhog effect".  For those that don't know what that means it comes from the movie "Groundhog's Day" with Bill Murray.  I actually had to reread the first few chapters because I was not sure what was going on.  BUT ............ once I figured out that there was more to the story line than just the "groundhog effect" I really started to enjoy it.  Some of you that read this might like that deja vu effect in books.  If that is the case, then the beginning of the book (and the whole book) is for you!!

I will read the second book when its released.
