At the heart of it all is the mystery of the rift, a portal between this world and another, where the town of Settler must fight off invading creatures once a year. Creatures like Haw Shot. Awesomely character driven, with Haw Shot, a possessed, head-collecting ghost from the rift being one of my favorites. And who could forget Cordelia Swit, the former ghost librarian who pops out of her own painting on occasion to give advice?
But where in the world has Charming gotten off to? Apparently she's gone into the rift. You can bet I'll be reading the sequel, The Initiate, to find out!
In present day he meets archaeologist Charming Long and her sister, Darling Dae aka Daelin. When Daelin's sister goes missing, Daelin learns more secrets than she should and Earl and his "associate" Dante have to erase parts of her memory.
It's a creative story of past meets present, mystery, and a lot of steampunk thrown into the science fiction.
I gave it a 4 b/c it's a little slow at times, but worth the read.
The Rifters: Mystery in a Strange Western Town
The Initiate (The Rifters Book 2)
The Reader (The Rifters Book 3)
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!
