LoveReading View on Gravity's Arrow

Fhiro and his father are working in an underwater laboratory when a tragic event occurs. It is discovered that an enemy race caused the disaster and so begins the adventure to protect their people from annihilation and prevent a war.

There's a rather confusing opening chapter. There is too much information thrown at us along with strange names of people and things that we have no idea what they are. It feels more like the middle of the book than the beginning.

If you like series such as Star Wars then you would probably enjoy this book. It is well written and probably aimed at the more competent reader. The author uses language very well to describe people and places, setting vivid scenes of alien places and creatures. The characters are well developed and I applaud the author's imagination in setting out this book of fantasy.

Gravity's Arrow Synopsis

Gravity’s Arrow, debut novel from Jack Mann, is a gripping science fiction adventure.

Twelve-year-old Fhiro doesn’t understand the tensions of the adult world around him and kicks back against his parents’ attempts to hold him in line. But when catastrophe strikes, he has no alternative but to do as he is told, watching aghast as he is dragged towards a future he neither envisaged nor ever wanted.

Fhiro and his family are disciples of the Creedate religion, but a fundamental sect that has taken it over objects to anyone who speaks out against its stated goals of total domination. Fhiro’s parents have been too outspoken and now the whole family must flee.

In their precipitous escape, the true extent of the secrets they have kept from Fhiro and his two siblings become clear.
