"Rift is set in fifteenth-century Scotland. The setting harkens to my love of the Scottish Highlands and my own ancestry (my maiden name is Robertson). I’ve been fortunate to spend a lot of time in Scotland and the Highlands in particular have always felt mysterious, magical, and marked by a sadness born of the weight of its history.
Rift follows the story of two women and the choices they make: the first is Ember — a sixteen-year-old initiate into a secretive clerical order called Conatus. Ember longs to break free of the role expected of her as the daughter of a nobleman. When she joins the Conatus Guard, Ember believes she’s found the freedom and adventure she’s dreamed of, but she faces a new challenge in the fierce warrior, Barrow, who’s been charged with her training. Thrust into life and death moments while at Barrow’s side leaves Ember breathless with newfound strength — and something else she’s only beginning to understand. The second is Eira — a veteran knight of Conatus whose frustration with the corruption of her superiors tempts her into dangerous choices. Eira is slowly drawn into an intimate alliance with a dark, mysterious figure who will change her world forever. The twists and turns of these two characters’ lives, and the immediate consequences of their actions, reveal how the Witches War began. Rise explores the emergence of the Keepers and the source of their dark magic as well as the risk of love and the price of betrayal...(Read More)
