The Call of the Rift: Flight

CotR: Nili

The Call of the Rift: Flight

The Call of the Rift: Flight

Check out my debut novel Flight :meow:

Seventeen-year-old Kateiko doesn’t want to be Rin anymore ― not if it means sacrificing lives to protect the dead. Her only way out is to join another tribe, a one-way trek through the coastal rainforest. Killing a colonial soldier in the woods isn’t part of the plan. Neither is spending the winter with Tiernan, an immigrant who keeps a sword with his carpentry tools. His log cabin leaks and his stories about other worlds raise more questions than they answer.

Then the air spirit Suriel, long thought dormant, resurrects a war. For Kateiko, protecting other tribes in her confederacy is atonement. For Tiernan, war is a return to the military life he’s desperate to forget.

Leaving Tiernan means losing the one man Kateiko trusts. Staying with him means abandoning colonists to a death sentence. In a region tainted by prejudice and on the brink of civil war, she has to decide what’s worth dying ― or killing ― for.

“[A] stunning debut . . . An intricately lush and well-crafted new fantasy that deserves (and demands) a sequel.” ― Kirkus Reviews, starred review :star:

“Waller puts a great deal of thought into her world-building . . . A mature choice for those who love high fantasy and magical realism.” ― School Library Journal

“A brilliant example of contemporary fantasy. The story itself was genuinely compelling. Every setting was clearly conveyed and beautifully described.” ― Bookmarked blog

"Heaven sent but hell bent on getting shit done"

I'm a multi-disciplinary artist. I have a BFA in fine arts and creative writing, plus I've studied linguistics and Japanese, which might explain my scattershot approach. :B I'm originally from northwest Canada, but currently live in southeast Australia and can't tell which season it is.
