This is the second book in the Rifters series, and it's even better than the first. We still have our small western town and quirky townsfolk. They have no idea what's looming over their heads, and it just makes it that much more entertaining. I love that Settler is in the midst of its annual festival, Swit Days, when this story takes place. Settler's personality rings as loudly as all the other characters in the book.
I'm still a big Daelin fan. She's unlike your typical heroine, and paired along side the Rifters, they make the Scooby gang look dry and suburbian. Daelin is challenged even further in this book, not just with her sister's disappearance, but her own inner demons as she tries to learn to trust again. Earl's journey to come to terms with his past is a fun, bumpy ride. One of my new favorites that we're introduced to is Silas. A brilliant and fascinating mind on that man.
One of the aspects that stands out in this book is the enemy currently threatening Settler's population. And threatening seems like too mild of a word for it! I'll never look at red stones the same way again.
This is my favorite book by M. Pax so far. I'm hungry for more!
Although she's a newcomer to settler, and hasn't even drawn her first paycheck as town librarian, Daelin is not only a Rifter but has also been recently promoted to Initiate. A lot has happened to her since losing her job and personal goods in New York. There, her boss betrayed her. Here, she's asked to trust the Rifters. It bothers her to be keeping secrets from her new teammates, but her life is full of uncertainties and it's difficult to know where to place her trust. Unresolved issues with family, friendships and teammates fill her head when she's not fighting for her life.
One thing I like about this story is the way it explores the main character's personal issues and back stories. Another thing I like is its location. If you've ever wondered what it's like to live in a small western town and about the secrets that small town people keep, you'll find out here, at least
fictitiously. It's a story filled with goofily repurposed gadgets, missing and temporally misplaced persons, and lots of sandwiches.
If you enjoy television shows such as Northern Exposure, Firefly, and Warehouse 13, this book is right up your alley
Grab The Rifters free, then move on to The Initiate - you'll be glad you did.
And don't for get this author also does a SciFi series call The Backworlds.
