The Rift Saga Book 1, Rift, the Kindle Edition

In the Rift Saga Book 1, Andreas weaves an amazing tale of deceit and betrayal -- In the order of the Hunger Games.

In a futuristic dystopian Earth, boundaries and cultures have disappeared and re-emerged in completely different and generally unrecognizable ways, yet the politics ring familiar with one power's use of technologically augmented disinformation, misinformation, and demonization of its opponents.

Sue and Dave, youthful residents of an oppressed town find themselves selected to serve the powers that be, with incentive being to have a chance at true citizenship, otherwise denied, as well as gaining the right to avoid the mandatory euthanasia at age 50 -- if they can survive their service.

Through a series of sheer accidents, they catch a glimpse behind the veil of deceit whereupon they find themselves targets for "neutralization" because what they now know poses a serious threat to the status quo.

About the Book

Cover, Rift Saga Book 1RIFT Saga Book 1, by Andreas Christensen

 

The RIFT Saga begins here. In the ruins of what was once North America lays the Covenant, a nation forged by the iron will of the Moon people, who descended from their dusty refuge on the Moon after the Fall. The Moon people are wealthy, ruled by a strong government who protects its citizens from the dangers from outside their borders. Their greatest achievement is having learned the secret of immortality, and every citizen has the opportunity to live nearly forever if they choose to, a life of riches and abundance.

“This book ends in a cliffhanger. The second book is available. No sexual situations, no romance, no bad language. The setting is 200 years past the author’s previous series, “Exodus.” This book is appropriate for young teens and older.” from verified review by KayDoubleYou.

5.0 out of 5 starsA new dystopian novel

When starting to read the Rift Saga Book 1 novel, I was expecting a story typical of the dystopian literature which has innovated reading lists and bookshelves everywhere. Stories like the Hunger Games, the Maze Runner, and Divergent, all of which rose to popularity and movie-dom. These books all have a common storyline which focus on young adults trying to survive an unsympathetic world which was designed to test their skills and ability to live. They also relied on relationships (and drama in the form of love triangles and forbidden love) to keep their reader’s interest. Christensen draws the attention using the classic, but effective technique of leaving things unsaid. Throughout this book, the readers are told about a world from the perspectives of a young man and a young woman who recite the facts that they have been told. Soon enough, that story begins to unravel leaving the characters – and the audience – with more questions then answers. Reader’s will be hooked by this fresh version of a story of individuals struggling for their lives in a dystopian world.

Fast Paced …an Excellent Read
