  10. Rift is book 1 in the Nightshade Prequel , by Andrea Cremer who I truly liked in Nightshade series book 1.A sword swinging and punching kick ass gal main character is a huge win in my appreciation of Andrea Cremer Oh, if only authors would do this I loved Ember, who at birth was saved by a healer from Conatus, and subsequently was forced at the age of 16 to enter service to Conatus She thwarted convention by doing this in face of her father s interest in how he could gain through an arranged ma [...]

  14. For anyone who is worried that Rift is a derivative piece of work meant to capitalize on the success of Andrea Cremer s Nightshade seriesNo Worries Rift stands alone as a book and the first in a what is hopefully a new series Though it goes back into the deep history of the Keepers, Keepers aren t even mentioned Instead it follows the adventures of Ember, a girl in the early fifteenth century Scottish Lowlands who struggles against the expectations of her class and sex to become a warrior in tra [...]

  19. Actual Rating 1.5 stars To summarize, for the whole length of the book, I barely followed what was even happening because It Was So Boring I have honestly never read a book where I hadn t given a single fuck about the plot, harsh as this sounds But I simply couldn t, as much as I wanted to Maybe this book is just not for me, or I m really getting tired of the Nightshade books Ember, in short, was essentially a Calla Number Two, and the epitome of a cardboard protagonist I felt no connection with [...]

  20. It was a huge surprise when I received an advanced copy of this novel I haven t read Cremer s Nightshade series, so I was glad to discover that Rift is a prequel and it isn t necessary to read the previous stories prior to beginning this series So I dove right in, not sure what to expect, and now find myself eager to read the next installment.A brave, strong willed heroine, a sweet romance, and a group of warriors who secretly battle dark supernatural foes are all a part of what make Rift an enj [...]

  26. SoThis is a prequel coming in Fall 2012.Very exciting it s going to be calledRIFT Looking forward to it ___________________________________________I liked this book, but it was a bit too confusing at times.I understand that it s fantasy as well as historical fiction, but I just didn t enjoy it as much as I did the Nightshade trilogy I also thought that the view spoiler romance took too long to happen, I didn t want to have to wait till the end to be able to have a kiss between Ember Barrow hide [...]

  27. Wow, this book was pretty intense and awesome I loved how Ember was this awesome warrior woman and was proud of her strength The supernatural element and the secret church connection were fascinating, and I loved the whole idea of the order.There s a little bit of a love triangle going on, but not really in a bad way it wasn t Ember flailing around not knowing who to choose it was a slow growing affection between two people, as well as the presence of another guy who has been in love with her fo [...]

  28. Very exciting prequel to the Nightshade series Of course, with a very strong female MC who knows how to fight and take care of herselfFull review can be found on my blog un Conventional Bookviews.Rift is the first book in the prequel series concerning the Nightshade universe I was completely engrossed in this story, I loved Ember, as I usually love strong female protagonists I also really liked to understand about what happened during the Nightshade novels, the mythology, the hunger for power, [...]

  29. In this book I really liked how it was in different perspectives even know some perspectives where harder to read than others Somehow I liked the other books in Nightshade better but I do not know why This book was not a quick read but was not slow either I have mixed feeling about this book by overall it was okay This is for the rainbow Challenge for blue and green I know this will sound stupid but she has green eyes.

  30. What the fuck is with people writing prequels to their series NO ONE FUCKING CARES The only person who could get away with this, in my eyes, is J.K Rowling, and she never would because she s too awesome for that.
