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

A Little Short

This is part one of three. Maybe that was why it was short. I usually like my Audible Sci-fi books to be 10 or more hours. This one was under 9 hours.
Using an ensemble cast for the narration took some getting used too. But by the end it was easy enough to follow.
The characters were just starting to get flushed out. I'm hoping that part two will continue down that path.
Last the story just stopped. It reminded me of the the last TV show of the season. Tune in next season or purchase the second book to continue. I will be purchasing the next book.

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.

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.
