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

My name is Maxton and I’m a trader.

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. But all the rules changed for me the day I found her.

My name is Sophelia and I’m a stowaway.

I’ve been a slave for almost as long as I can remember. Waiting for the one day, one second, for my proprietor to turn his head so I could run and never look back. Now I'm on the run. And on a planet where no one is on your side and people would turn you in for a good meal or a piece of a silver, being on the run on Landu is the last place you want to be. Until he found me.

I won't survive without him.

I can't breathe without her. 

(I received a digital copy through publisher and Netgalley, in exchange of honest review.)


I have been hearing about this author, and I actually heard good things about her from a friend of mine. THE OTHER SIDE OF GRAVITY was the first novel that I have read by SHELLY CRANE and once I did, I knew why people are fans of this author, she’s amazing and once you finish reading the novel you will find yourself craving for more right away. That was the feeling that I got when I finished THE OTHER SIDE OF GRAVITY and especially a cliffhanger like that, how can you not help but wonder what’s in store next for both Sophelia and Maxton? I did not see that coming, I was sure that they wouldn’t end up getting captured, well I was hoping that Sophelia would not get captured. I fell in love with both of their names from the start, they are not the type of names that you hear often in books, it was unique. There was a lot action in this book and there was always something going on and you couldn’t help but wonder what would happen next.

Cover for the novel was one of first things to catch my attention, besides the title. Isn’t gorgeous and unique? I feel like cover itself will have you curious and have you pick up the novel because you will be wondering. Besides seeing the author’s name, the cover caught my attention along with the title, I couldn’t help but wonder about it and I had feeling that it would turn out to be a book that I would love. I was right, because the minute that I picked up the book and started reading it, I could not get enough of the story. Every page, every chapter had me on the edge of my seat, wondering if this would be the moment that they would be caught. I cannot begin to imagine to be on run like they were, especially when so many people were looking for Sophie, but after a while I started to think that maybe they would be able to get away with it. But now I don’t even imagine of what might happen with her, till Maxton comes to rescue her.

Maxton and Sophie had an unlikely relationship, considering how the two of them started out when two of them just met. I was positive that he was going help her, considering how he was with her when he found out, only to turn her in later. I felt how betrayed she felt, it is no wonder she had trusting him for a while. As the book progressed, I understood why he did what he did. At start I was not sure if he actually cared for Sophie and I felt like Sophie was setting herself up for getting hurt, again. However as book progressed and the more time that the two of them spend with each other, I saw that Maxton developed feeling for her, just like she did for him expect she still had trouble letting him in, at least at first. You could see the bond, the attraction that two of them had when they were together and I found myself hoping that she will see, how much he cares for her. In the end my heart broke for Maxton, I can not imagine how it is to watch love of your life get captured, I am just hoping that they will be able to rescue her before it’s too late.

A beautiful, heartbreaking story. I know that after this book, I will be checking out rest of her books. I want see what adventures she has in store. Breathtaking and worth every page.
