The War Against Gravity is an eco-whodunit, a novel in which the natural environment is as much a character as any human being. Kristine Rosemary's debut novel shows her to be a gripping stylist as well as a committed environmentalist.

From Publishers Weekly:

In her first novel, journalist Rosemary grapples with the subject of environmental terrorism and manages admirably to avoid the pitfall of preachy fiction. Her narrator is a young woman named Carey who uses evocative language and has an amusing wisecracking outlook; on the other hand, she rarely illuminates the events in her chronicle of her discovery that her occasional lover, Dana, a journalist and friend of her family, kills the spokespeople of polluting companies in his spare time. A satisfying conclusion is lacking, because Carey herself does not know everything about what is going on around her--including the activities of the Group, a mysterious gang of people who sabotage equipment that they feel threatens the environment--and because she decides at the close of the novel that fully investigating these events and the suspicious death of a close friend is not worth the trouble. However, descriptive passages about the Northwest, both its human and nonhuman inhabitants and the ways in which they are threatened, are right on the mark.

From Library Journal:

Set in the present-day Pacific Northwest, this somewhat frenzied first novel depicts the goings-on of ecoterrorists, backwoods survivalists, greedy lumber and chemical companies, and "possibly" the CIA. Youthful narrator Carey is the perfect picaresque heroine: naive, mature, cynical, witty, sexy, soft, or whatever else is needed to propel the plot at any given moment. Excellent descriptions of the wooded coastal lands, an understanding of Northwest radical politics, a sharp sense of satire, and mouth-watering descriptions of seafood delicacies all contribute to the tale's strange success. Weak points include an almost incomprehensible plot and paper-thin characters. Despite its flaws, this is an entertaining and, at times, thought-provoking tale.
