Summary

What will the world look like in thirty years’ time? How will humanity survive the oncoming effects of climate change? Set in the near future and inspired by the world around us, Gravity Is Heartless is a romantic adventure that imagines a world on the cusp of climate catastrophe. 



The year is 2050: automated cities, vehicles, and homes are now standard, artificial Intelligence, CRISPR gene editing, and quantum computing have become a reality, and climate change is in full swing—sea levels are rising, clouds have disappeared, and the planet is heating up.



Quinn Buyers is a climate scientist who'd rather be studying the clouds than getting ready for her wedding day. But when an unexpected tragedy causes her to lose everything, including her famous scientist mother, she embarks upon a quest for answers that takes her across the globe—and she uncovers friends, loss and love in the most unexpected of places along the way. Gravity Is Heartless is bold, speculative fiction that sheds a hard light on the treatment of our planet even as it offers a breathtaking sense of hope for the future.

    On the night of the Hunter’s Moon, all fell silent as cracks between the cobblestone flooded with streams of red. Monsters who once were men moaned and wailed in the winding alleys of the walled city…
    Two years ago, Zayne Bishop, the last Witch Hunter, was thrown through a Black Mirror by a vindictive Dark Witch obsessed with using the blood of a dead dark god to enhance her magic. Left half-dead in San Francisco, Zayne met the dhampyre warlock Logan Myre, and the two teamed up to get Zayne home, only to find the answers he sought were in the very world he found himself. Peace is shattered when Zayne receives an invitation from an anonymous client wishing to meet with him. According to her, war is coming between the vampires and witches. 
    Vampires are being slaughtered, their organs stolen. Fae blood is being harvested, leaving husks in their wake. Fear runs rampant in an already unstable Supernatural world. To combat the unrest, Zayne must once again team up with Alexis, Logan, and the newly recruited Wood Elf Ciri to journey to the birthplace of his nightmare and confront another of the Black Circle of Seven: a powerful Necromancer with the ability to control monsters starving for blood bent on tearing Europe apart to find the macabre Book of the Old Blood. 
    To do this, Zayne will need to delve into the darker realm of his history, agree to a deal with a dangerous Fae queen, and face the demons created by the one who founded the Witch Hunters—the mysterious Grand Master. Zayne and Logan’s budding relationship is put to the test…
