Living in the Flames
Killing Gravity (Voidwitch, volume 1)
By Corey J. White
2017’s Killing Gravity is the first instalment in Corey J. White’s Voidwitch series.
The MEPHISTO corporation purchased Mariam from her father and turned her from an unremarkable little girl into a living weapon who could liquefy soldiers and divert asteroids with a thought. Much to the corporation’s surprise, Mariam — Mars Xi — felt little gratitude for the gift of such power; she resented the terrible cost she had paid in pain and suffering. And she was unwilling to become a corporate tool. She fled, hoping to put her past behind her.
Years later, her past catches up to her.
