The Rift is an action-packed YA fantasy full of heart-pounding romance from award-winning New Zealand author Rachael Craw.
When the Rift opens, death follows.
For generations, the Rangers of Black Water Island have guarded the Old Herd against horrors released by the Rift. Cal West, an apprentice Ranger with a rare scar and even rarer gifts, fights daily to prove he belongs within their ranks. After nine years away, Meg Archer returns to her childhood home only to find the Island is facing a new threat that not even the Rangers are prepared for. Meg and Cal can’t ignore their attraction, but can they face their darkest fears to save the Island from disaster?

Thrilling ... A fresh and original story; a standout in the fantasy genre. The romance between Cal and Meg blends envy, desire and uncertainty with a potent authenticity. Written with a sparse lovely poetry, The Rift demands an immersion that is intoxicating. I can't recommend this enough. * Isobelle Carmody, author of the Obernewtyn Chronicles and The Gathering *
Gripping, brutal, tender. You won't be able to put this book down. * Michael Pryor, author of The Laws of Magic series and Gap Year in Ghost Town *
Beautiful, dark and deliciously tense - an astonishing world that will hold you in its finely wrought claws. * Alison Goodman, author of the Lady Helen series and the Eon series *
