The genre is one I am not used to reading so it took me a bit to sort of fall into the rhythm and keep track of the odd details—world building takes a while—but once I did I really enjoyed this book. Daelin is delightful: “In all the dictionaries!” being her favorite swear phrase perhaps being my favorite detail. I liked the other characters and the world set up. I would definitely read a sequel.
In this, the first book of another series, we aren't exactly taken off-planet, but Settler, Oregon isn't like any other place on earth, either. At least it isn't like anyplace I ever want to visit. Oh, it looks picturesque enough, and all those trees and fresh air make it smell real good, but the place has a sinister undercurrent. It's... weird. And the people who live there are... weirder. See, the town has its very own rift, kinda like a gateway to unknown dimensions, and strange creatures from "somewhere", and dead people from the past sometimes try to come through. For many years, a group of townspeople have assumed the duty of guarding the rift, and try to protect their town from whatever evil creatures seek entry.
When Daelin first came to Settler to move in with her sister Charming, she didn't know what the heck was going on, or who she could trust. To start out with, her sister wasn't even there when she arrived. What kinda welcome was that?
Little by little, the truth comes out, and Daelin adapts to her strange new world. Before she knows it, she's taking advise from a ghost. She even manages to save some lives by destroying a scary three-headed dead dude. All in a day's work. All in the name of trying to save her sister, and trying to help keep her new town safe.
There's no real ending to the story with this book, so you're gonna want to get the next book(s) in the series, too. I guarantee you; this is different from anything you've ever read. Check it out!
At the same time, Daelin, Charming’s sister, has just arrived in town hoping for a fresh start after losing her job in NYC. She encounters countless small-town folks, all of them a bit odd, which made them all so much fun! I enjoyed the references to books and writing that M. PAX added to Daelin’s perspective. It was a perfect touch for a character who accepts a position at a library. Daelin is a wonderful character. I fell for her immediately. She is spunky and tough, and has a love for literature.
Beaked phantoms, resurrected cowboys, headless people, ghosts, and murder makes this story a very entertaining read.
In the beginning I did find myself confused about Earl and his past as we don’t get to read about his time in 1888 as an outlaw or how he went through the rift. However, as I kept reading things started to make sense and the questions lingering in my head were answered one by one.
It's set in a sleepy Oregon town that is wonderfully brought to life and realistic, with plenty of odd characters. Just outside of town lurks a rift between worlds and time, through which emerges a nasty creature that delights in stealing people's heads. A secret society exists in town to try to hold the inhabitants of the Rift at bay.
A fun read, with plenty of action and mystery and clearly setting the scene for sequels. If you want something out of the ordinary then you'll enjoy this.
