Gravitas by Lynne Murray

A well-written and fast-paced adventure.
I liked the plot and the humour of this easy to read book.

I enjoyed the author's ideas on how people from other worlds and cultures may see us, and the attention to detail and witty dialogue.

The author's take on the origin of religions on earth is unique and amusing. The characters are interesting and memorable, and I loved that the heroine, Sybil, is a 'well-built' woman instead of the size zero that seems to be the norm in a lot of books as well as in society itself.


Sybil, from the Planet Valkyrie carries a risky amount of Gravitas, a potent aphrodisiac. The cargo must be harvested before the damaging side effects send her into another realm. Or has it already happened? Where did that demon, the color of molten lava, come from? And what can she do to defeat it?

The Author:
Lynne Murray went to San Francisco to go to college, got captivated by the city, and has not left for long since then. It is the perfect setting for any kind of fiction. It's good ground to conjure up fog and dark nights for paranormal activities in The Falstaff Vampire Files, sunshine on the Bay for the romantic comedy in Bride of the Living Dead, and even as jumping off ground to investigate bit of murder as in the Josephine Fuller mysteries.

She shares an apartment with a small group of extremely mellow cats, who are all either rescued or formerly feral.

Aside from novels, She has written humorous short pieces that have appeared in magazines and newspapers. Many of these articles, including the most fun one of all--an interview of Darlene Cates, star of What's Eating Gilbert Grape--available on her website at www.lmurray.com.
