Gravity Girl (Gravity Shattered Book 1)

When your life has a deadline, why play it safe?

Grav-walker Jasper Pine has always known she’d die young. She makes a living hunting for salvage in the decaying, three-dimensional maze of the gravity zones, where any direction can be down and every leap could be your last. Even if her reckless lifestyle doesn’t kill her, the alien infection inside her will soon explode, and the resulting cataclysm of broken gravity could endanger the entire planet. She’ll die to prevent that from happening. 

Then an unexpected glimmer of hope appears and changes everything. A feral boy holds the key to her future, but he’s been captured by a ruthless militarized cult. Jasper will have to turn to the one person she should be avoiding, Ryan Latrans, a charming outsider who’s been sent into the zones to retrieve a sample of the alien infection for a powerful and unscrupulous man. 

With millions of lives at stake and time running out, can Jasper afford a leap of faith?

Perfect for fans of hopeful, poignant character journeys, slow burn romance and unique settings. Contains some language and violence, self-harm, and memories of abuse and torture.


Meet V.R. Friesen

V.R. Friesen has been writing stories since shortly after she learned the alphabet. She grew up on the beautiful East Coast of Canada and now lives on the equally beautiful (but in a different way) West Coast, in Vancouver, BC, with one of her many siblings and a cat. She can usually be found drinking chai lattes, cheering on her favourite basketball team, or reading voraciously in science fiction, fantasy, young adult and dystopian fiction. Gravity Shattered is her first series.

Back to Troy

She could lose her heart, mind, life—or all three.

Murders and disappearances. Spicy rumors and family secrets. A childhood crush turned ladies’ man.

This could not end well.

What really brought Emma Dill back to Troy? The need to remember—or to forget? The desire to solve a ruthless murder—or to move on? The hope for a blossoming new romance—or an old flame that just won’t die?

The murderer is a sociopath: a savage hiding in plain sight.

The victim is her mother: a former stripper, a hot-headed, cold-blooded enigma.

She is a twenty-two-year-old orphan: a spunky poodlehead, a spitfire in the guise of a songbird.

Her partner in crime is her old heartache: an irresistible freewheeler, a shameless tease…and a delicious, impertinent kiss.

Charged with fast-paced suspense and slow-burn romance, BACK TO TROY kicks off the series with two hundred pages of heat, adrenaline, and humor.

Lunar Rampage

Werewolves aren’t real. Or so that’s what Cora Nash used to tell herself.

She was supposed to be spending a relaxing summer with her grandmother, renovating a house that had suffered damage from a harsh winter, not kept awake by nights filled with piercing howls, or alarmed at the rapid rate in which people disappeared, and how no one seemed too concerned.

When Cora investigates, the truth behind these disturbances is much larger and more terrifying than she could have ever envisioned. And in a town full of strangers, it’s almost impossible for her to know whom to trust.

Werewolves aren’t real, she told herself. Werewolves aren’t real…
