Publisher's Summary

The first book in the fast-paced action-adventure The Rift Uprising Trilogy - an enthralling mix of speculative fiction and military thriller - in which a young soldier comes to question the monsters she's trained to fight against...and the monsters she fights for.
Seventeen-year-old Ryn Whittaker is a Citadel: an elite, enhanced soldier specially chosen to guard a Rift, a mysterious and dangerous portal to alternate Earths scientists cannot control or close. Trained from the age of 14, Ryn can run faster, jump farther, and fight better than a Navy SEAL - which is good when you're not sure if a laser-wielding Neanderthal or an ax-wielding Viking is trying to make it through the Rift and into your world.
But the teenager's military conditioning and education have not prepared her for the boy who crosses through - a confused young man, seemingly lost and alone. While there's an immediate physical attraction, it's his intelligence and curiosity that throw Ryn off balance. The stranger asks disturbing questions about the Rift that Ryn herself has never considered - questions that lead her to wonder if everything about her life and what she's been told these past six years has been a lie. Are the Rifts as dangerous as her leaders say? Should her people really try to close them...or learn how to travel through them?

Mediocrity In Bloom

Just could not get into this book. It seemed very repetitive and somewhat juvenile. It had some very good science fiction ideas, but they were not executed well. The basic premise was that of rifts opening up on earth that let people go to other parallel earths. A very interesting idea. There is also a mystery of why the government wants these rifts locked down and kept secret. There just was not enough suspense and intrigue to keep the story moving along. Narration was average.

Awesome start to a series

This book had an awesome female protagonist and even though she’s a super smart and enhanced the author did a great job in showing her growth throughout the story. The only reason this did not get the full five stars performance wise is because I found the the narrators voice when reading the Roone/Rune (no idea what the proper spelling is) portions to be super annoying.
