There are greater rifts, however. Julie goes missing at the age of seventeen. It will be twenty years before Selena sees her again.

Selena has an impossible choice to make: does she dismiss her sister as a damaged person, the victim of delusions, or believe her, and risk her own sanity in the process?

Editorial Reviews

"Moving, subtle, and ambiguous, this is a good pick for literary-sf fans" - Booklist“a reminder that upheaval is rarely resolved so easily as in books, that human relationships can often be messy, complicated, and unresolvable things” Barnes & Noble SFF blog“an exceptionally rich, haunting and immersive reading experience that will linger on your mind for a long time after you've finished reading it”  Rising Shadow “a lot of fun concepts here and a fully crafted alien world”“worth the read” Gamers Sphere"The Rift will appeal to any science-fiction lover. It’s well written and surprising in a way that many of the clumsier science-fiction stories today aren’t. As the story delves deeper into fantastical territory, it might be off-putting to some. Nonetheless, for those willing to remain with the story until the end, it is worth the investment. Through the unbelievable and the disturbing, the book maintains a level of practicality that is refreshing." - Portland Book Review
