Gravity (Book #1) by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:
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?

My Review:
I didn't really know what to expect from this book. But, I was pleasantly surprised by it. I was introduced to supernatural creatures that you don't really see very often and I liked it! It is a unique story. The abilities of Peyton are very interesting and I can't wait to see what happens when she learns how to use them. I really like how the story progressed, it didn't feel like they were rushed into anything. Peyton and the guys handled everything that happened really well. If it were me I would have freaked out big time! Seeing creatures who are the people that you love and your friends would be just crazy! 
I really liked the secondary characters here. Trace and Brady are a great duo. The relationship between Peyton and Trace is electric. They are very much meant for each other! I don't want to say to much because I don't want to give anything away. The relationship between Brady and Peyton is a brother/sister with a very protective brother. He doesn't want to see Peyton get hurt. It's very sweet. The book ended with quite a cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what happens next!
