My shelf candy pick for today is: Gravity (The Eclipse Series, book 1) written by M. Leighton
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?
As soon as I saw this cover I knew I wanted to feature it. The colors on this book are just stunning. Although the girl in the dress is clearly meant to be the focal point my eyes go directly overhead to those trees and then to the backgrounds landsape. I love this look and it calls to me. It’s like a blustery autumn day and those days are my favorite! And what about the girl? She is running away fom something, doesn’t it look that way to you? Who is she running from and is she running toward anyone else?
I am seriously considering reading this book and its sales ranking on amazon is really good which tells me that I am not the only one to be pulled in by the cover and the synopsis.
What do you think?
