Publisher's summary

They’ve watched us for centuries through the Rift. 

They’ve prepared. 

Invasion is inevitable. 

The Earth Fleet has known of the Watchers for years, unwilling to share the knowledge with humanity. Now it might be too late. 

Hidden away from the Fleet, one man is creating a new colony ship destined for the other side of the Rift, but he’s missing a few pieces. 

Three other people have varied paths to get there. Ace goes from the streets of Earth to the Fleet training facility on the moon. Flint, an ex-Fleet pilot, must decide if a job is worth his life, and Wren, imprisoned for a secret project years ago, is given hope as an unlikely ally whispers words of escape in her ear. 

Their journeys lead to Councilman Jarden Fairbanks, who knows of the impending invasion, and has prepared. All they can do is wait for the Rift to open once again, and see what’s on the other side. 

Rift joins an ensemble cast facing immeasurable obstacles. If you enjoy space battles, prison breaks, androids, and aliens, buried under a shroud of mystery, this book is for you. Try it today! 

A fresh new science fiction adventure from the author of the best-selling Survivors series

very interesting plot and well put together.

great party idea and I like the way they brought the characters together. however, I would have liked to have a decent sized book in this format and not one so short. keep up the good work and I look forward to more

hart to take seriously

the author decided to make this story way too gynocentric, the voice of the doctor bioengineer sounds weak and out of place. it gets worse in its gynocentisum as you get to the other two books after this book. the Author did not do his job telling a story, the plot was intersting but I could not mentally dive into this universe. sorry for saying this, but the leadership were all female and in the real world this is never the case in the military so it was hard to immerse myself into this trilogy. I would like to see more men in the story. but I guess to get published you got to be SJW.

Ok.

Not the best, far from the worst. Certainly worth a credit if you looking for a new SciFi book. It is slow and I almost returned it. But around 2 hrs in, it gets much better.

Good story and bad narration..

this was in interesting story. A lot of readers didn't like it because it was separated sections with each one about someone different. There wasn't really any battles but the stories about each person was worth reading, especially; Wren, Charles, Flint and Ace. I mean everyone was interesting but some more than others. The Rift was a small opening in space that opened every 30 years and this time the Eureka went through it and the Watchers came to out space, by the thousands.

No romance and no swearing to speak of.

As for the narrators: Mostly they were all terrible. The women were the worst though. Every person, man and woman alike, sounded like a woman. And there's nothing worse than a man with a feminine voice. As for the male narrators, every one who spoke sounded just like a man. BUT, at least I can stand a woman with a deep voice more than I can stand a girly voice on a man. This should never had more than ONE narrator. IMO

Reader seems unrehearsed

Only in Chapter 1 and having a hard time sticking with it. Writing is choppy and performance is 1 dimensional, as if this is his first time reading the story.
