Praise for THE RIFT

"Thrilling … A fresh and original story; a standout in the fantasy genre. The romance between Cal and Meg blends envy, desire and uncertainty with a potent authenticity. Written with a sparse lovely poetry, The Rift demands an immersion that is intoxicating. I can’t recommend this enough." ―Isabelle Carmody, author of The Obernewtyn Chronicles and The Gathering
"Gripping, brutal, tender. You won’t be able to put this book down." ―Michael Pryor, author of The Laws Of Magic series and Gap Year in Ghost Town.

“Beautiful, dark and deliciously tense – an astonishing world that will hold you in its finely wrought claws.” ―Alison Goodman, author of the Lady Helen series and the Eon series.

"Masterful and brilliant! Beautiful world building, stunning writing, a cracking plot, perfectly paced and hot romantic tension. Craw has outdone herself." ―Fleur Ferris, best-selling author of Risk, Black, Wreck and Found

As corporate greed is pitted against supernatural forces, two young friends must try to protect the precious Old Herd -- and their island itself.

For generations, the rangers of Black Water Island have guarded the Old Herd against the horrors released by the Rift. And Cal West, an apprentice ranger, fights daily to prove he belongs within their ranks. But even greater challenges await with the return of his childhood friend Meg Archer and the onset of a new threat that not even the rangers are prepared for. Now Meg and Cal, while struggling with their mutual attraction, must face their darkest fears to save the island from disaster. In a possible near future where Big Pharma is pitted against ancient traditions and the supernatural, Rachael Craw's gripping and brutal tale, inspired by Greek mythology, will immerse readers and leave them intoxicated by its richly imagined world.

"When the Rift opens, death follows."
About the book - That's the first thing that pulled me in and made me want me to read this book. Cal is a Ranger who has rarer gifts. Meg returns to her childhood home but she finds them facing a new threat. It's the Rangers job to help keep people safe.
My Thoughts - This book was very different then what I thought it was going to be. There are supernatural creatures, that creeped me out at times. The book starts off slow, building up speed unlit your surprised; you're at the end. My favorite thing about this book other then the writing was the relationship between Meg and Cal who we find out used to be old friends. Joss is the best character in this book; nothing more to say there. I enjoyed the magical realism mixed with spooky vibes. The wold is strongly made, the authors' skill of developing this atmospheric blow me away. I thought this was going to be a character-driven book but it turned out that the world is what moved this story for me. If you are looking for a one of a kind book that will give you spooky vies perfect for the cold days coming, then dive into this one!
